Dear Anon

Ovulation is defined as the release of an egg from the follicle in the ovary. The egg, once released, is only fertilisable for a period of 24 hrs. However, the phase from the LH peak(rise of LH which trigges ovultion) to the actual point of ovulation is approximately 36 hrs and ovulation detection kits can therfore pre-ampt ovulation by this time period.
