However, even before the baby is born, during pregnancy it is already present and is responsible for triggering positive emotions in the pregnant woman, contributes to changes in the woman's body and facilitates contractions.

They are responsible for releasing the egg during the menstrual cycle that, if it is finally fertilized, will lead to pregnancy.

Ovulation

In case it is fertilized during the next 12 or 48 hours, a pregnancy will occur, otherwise it will begin to be destroyed and the woman will have menstruation.

Ovum

It is the female cell that is released from the ovary once a month, approximately on day 14 of the menstrual cycle (in regular 28-day cycles). It is housed in the ovary, the female sex gland. In the event that the ovum is fertilized by a sperm, pregnancy will begin, otherwise, it will begin to disintegrate and menstruation will occur.
