    i was searching for Images of the Ovulation process and came across these.

    A doctor in Brussels recently captured images of an ovary releasing an egg

    Eggs are very tiny... they're about 120μm in width (about twice the thickness of human hair) so these pictures are most likely zoomed in a whole lot. :) How cool and very interesting!

    hmm... i showed my DH this lmao.. and he wasnt grossed out or anything, he actually appreciated seeing it.. but we had an interesting (and uneducated probably) discussion LOL... i was wondering if the follice was holding on to the egg until the sperm comes? or does the follice let go of the egg and the egg just.. float around until the sperm finds it?

    That's really interesting and not disgusting at all (at least, I didn't think so). And yes, quoting the article "this reminds us how little medical science actually knows about the human body". I'd like to add, especially about reproduction system. It's like they're rather leave it in hands of higher force or something.

    But anyway, on the drawings I saw before, it's always showing the follicle rupturing and egg flying out, but here it looks more like it's slowly squeezing the egg out.
