How Many Eggs Do Women Release After Menstruation?

The chance of fertilization is dependent on the release of a mature egg from the ovary of a female in a particular menstrual cycle. According to Nhs, each month during ovulation, one egg is usually released. But some women may release more than one egg within 24 hours of each other.

When this happens, there is the potential to conceive fraternal (non-identical) twins if both eggs are fertilized. But having two eggs released at different times within the same cycle doesn't happen.

Discarded eggs are either reabsorbed by the body or broken down and passed via your period. The ovulated egg has 12 to 24 hours to be fertilized, and if not, it also disintegrates. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly when ovulation happens but in most women, it happens around 10 to 16 days before the next period.

If, like many women, you don't have a 28-day menstrual cycle, you can determine the length of your cycle and when you're most likely to ovulate by keeping a menstrual calendar.
