Ovulation in the human female normally takes place midway during the menstrual cycle in which of the following phases?

( A ) after the luteal phase
( B ) at the beginning of menses
( C ) after the follicular phase.
( D ) before the follicular phase

1 Answer

(C) is the right answer.

In humans, ovulation occurs about midway through the menstrual cycle, after the follicular phase. The few days surrounding ovulation (from approximately days 10 to 18 of a 28 day cycle), constitute the most fertile phase. The follicular phase (or proliferative phase) is the phase of the menstrual cycle during which the ovarian follicles mature. The follicular phase lasts from the beginning of menstruation to the start of ovulation.
