Discharging of Ovum

Discharging of the ovum (or egg) occurs when the rising level of estrogen in the bloodstream causes the hypothalamus to reduce a second substance, luteinizing hormone (LH). This causes one of the follicles to burst and release an ovum for possible fertilization, the escape being known as ovulation.
