Human eggs are produced by follicles, fluid-filled sacs on the side of the ovary, which, around the time of ovulation, produce a reddish protrusion seen in the pictures.

The egg comes from the end of this, surrounded by a jelly-like substance containing supportive cells. The egg itself is only the size of a full-stop, and the whole ovary, which contains many immature eggs, just a couple of inches long. The egg emerged from the ovary over 15 minutes.

Before the egg is released, enzymes break down the tissue in a fluid-filled sac on the surface of the ovary that contains the egg. A reddish protrusion forms and then a hole appears from which the egg emerges. The egg is surrounded by supporting cells, which protect it as it enters the Fallopian tube on its way to the uterus.

After the release from the follicle, the egg travels down the Fallopian tube where it can be fertilised.



Subhanallah …………..
