Do you ovulate from one ovary every month?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 09/18/2019

No. The ovulation process occurs randomly in the ovaries. It does not follow a specific pattern.

There are many follicles in the ovary and only one of them will reach the final stage of maturation. This follicle is called the dominant follicle and it will generate some substances that block the development of the others. All this happens in the ovarian tissue, regardless of whether it is in the right or left ovary.

Suggested for you: Ovulation and menstruation at the same time: is this possible?.
