Ovulation is the phase of a female's menstrual cycle in which a mature egg is released from the ovarian follicles into the oviduct. After ovulation, during the luteal phase, the egg will be available to be fertilized by sperm. Concomitantly, the uterine lining is thickened to be able to receive a fertilized egg.
