What is ovulation?

Hopefully not as daft a question as it sounds!

When I had cycle monitoring we could always see a dominant follie growing in text book fashion. My lining would thicken nicely. I would always get the required blue lines usually aound day 14 (I’m a regular day 28/29 girl) the follicle would then appear to have collapsed a day or so later suggesting ovulation. But then always on my day 21 blood test my progesterone levels were never high enough and so was then told that I hadn’t actually ovulated and all the other signs were to be ignored as the progesterone level was the key one.

I am about to undergo a FET and am unsure whether to do natural or medicated. I think I would rather do natural because I always get cysts when I am down regging – which incidentally is consistent with a study I have found on the net which suggests that women with progesterone levels of less than 5 on day 21 are more likely to develop cysts when taking buserelin. However I don’t know if I am suitable for natural cause of the ovulation question

Hope you can shed some light

Thanks

I do not perform "natural cycle" FET's. WE can plan our transfers and have more reliable preparation of the endometrium.
Good luck.
