Process of follicle recruitment in the ovaries

Out of all the primordial follicles that started to mature during the first week of pregnancy, only one of them will become a preovulatory follicle by the end of the second week, as a consequence of variations in the levels of FSH.

On the other hand, the LH surge takes place on day 14th of the menstrual cycle, coinciding with ovulation. The egg that was contained within the follicle is released and starts traveling to the Fallopian tube, waiting to be fertilized by the sperm.
