Ovulación

Toggle: English / Spanish

La ovulación tiene lugar gracias a una serie de respuestas hormonales. En lo profundo del cerebro, la glándula pituitaria libera las hormonas HFE y HL, las cuales se desplazan por el torrente sanguíneo hasta los ovarios. Estas hormonas señalan el desarrollo y liberación de un solo óvulo de uno de los ovarios. El movimiento de barrido de las fimbrias tubáricas lleva al óvulo a lo largo de un espacio muy reducido de la cavidad abierta del cuerpo hasta la trompa de Falopio. El óvulo será entonces fecundado por un espermatozoide o se disolverá si no es fecundado.
