Photos you're seeing here are making history - literally!
Dr. Jacques captured by Donnez for the first time clear picture, these images show ovulation as occurs in the human female. Because ovulation occurs so infrequently (13 times per year in the average American woman) when ever happens, it does fairly quickly (up to 15 minutes from start to finish), and because you never know for certain exactly when ovulation will take place, it has been very difficult a clear video or picture of this event.
The release of a mature egg from the ovary in a woman's body is so sensitive to hormones and various factors at play that perfection to photograph the spectacular event is so far a unique event in human history.
These pictures were taken when Dr. Donnez, head of the department of gynecology at UCL in Brussels, Belgium, accidentally found that ovulation of his client, a 45-year-old was happening when preparing to perform a partial hysterectomy .
Sidenote: The hysterectomies are still the most common (some say, unnecessary) surgeries performed on women (adult) in North America. While circumcision is the most common and unnecessary surgery performed on men (newborns) in the United States.

Donnez's photos will be published in the professional journal, Fertility and Sterility. They provide us with new information about human ovulation.
Before this series of images, still it believed that ovulation was carried out quickly - an almost explosively. Donnez captured images of the event that occurs in a series of almost 15 minutes, from start to finish. "The release of the oocyte from the ovary is a crucial event in human reproduction," Donnez reports. "These pictures are clearly important to better understand the mechanism."
Dr. Alan McNeilly of Human Reproduction Unit of the Medical Research Council in Edinburgh, UK reported that "(This) is really a fascinating insight into ovulation, and see it in real life rarely occurs. It really is a turning point in the whole process, the beginnings of life in a way. " McNeilly said that before the images of Donnez, had just successfully (and clearly) photographed ovulation occurring in other species of animals - not in humans. The images that were previously used to study human ovulation were fuzzy at best.
a sack filled with liquid on the surface of the ovary that contains the egg (egg) - in these photos is the mature follicle. Shortly before the egg is released, enzymes break the follicle tissue leading to the release of eggs. then we see a red balloon and a tiny hole that appears at the top of the follicle. The egg leaves the ovarian follicle, protected by a sack of support cells. Traveling in the fallopian tube where the journey to the uterus is made.

After the release of a mature egg, there are about 24 hours before it is no longer viable. It is only during the day only a woman can get pregnant. However, if alive sperm were already present in the cervix or uterus before ovulation, pregnancy can be carried out without the introduction of consecutive sperm. Sperm typically remain viable for about 72 hours (3 days) within the confines of a woman's body.
