Is it possible for two ovulation to occur in the same woman's menstrual cycle?

Yes, it's possible. Also, this fact would explain the origin of the non-identical twins. In these situations, the fertilization of two different eggs by two sperm occurs, which is known as super-fertilization.

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