Abstract

Ovulation is the pivotal point in the reproductive cycle. Is is not an isolated event but requires synchrony of numerous steps including preparation and maturation of the follicle(s) destined to ovulate, steroid hormone secretion by the ovary, and neuroendocrinological changes resulting in gonadotropin secretion. This presentation will focus on the ultimate signal to the ovary that results in the release of the ovum: the preovulatory surge of luteinizing hormone (LH).
