High prolactin and conception Prolactin (prl) is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland, a small-sized gland at the base of the brain. Prolactin acts on three main areas in women: 1. It causes galactorrhea 2. It reduces fertility as it inhibits the action of the two responsible hormones for egg maturation and ovulation induction (FSH and GnRH) 3. It reduces libido High concentrations of prolactin suppress ovulation (hence women who breastfeed have high concentrations of prolactin and usually do not become pregnant). Also,...

The moment of ovulation Ovulation is when a mature egg is released from the follicle, pushed down the fallopian tube, and waits to be fertilized. Normally, every month an egg matures within one of the ovaries. As it matures, the egg is released from the ovary, it then enters the fallopian tube where it waits for the sperm to fertilize it. The lining of the uterus gets thickened to prepare for the fertilized egg. If no conception occurs, the uterine lining, as well as blood, is then shed. This is menstruation. This is a real photo...

Why are millions of sperm needed, while only one will fertilize the egg? The battle that sperm cells give to fertilize the egg is merciless. They have no help from the female reproductive organs. The first obstacle is the cervix, a complex labyrinth that prevents many sperm from eventually entering. Those who finally succeed, have to go through a "hostile" uterus and be lead to a narrow entrance, the fallopian tube. Those which finally enter the tube - very few in number - eventually meet the egg. In more detail: Within 30-60 minutes of...
