Women May Ovulate Two to Three Times a Month
I just came across this article, Women May Ovulate Two to Three Times a Month, written by Owen Dyer, which states that women may ovulate more than once per menstrual cycle.
Researchers from the University of Saskatchewan took daily ultrasounds of 63 women whom had regular menstrual cycles and found that at least 40% of the women had the clear potential to produce more than one egg a cycle.
These findings may explain why the rhythm method of contraception is not a recommend course of action (but I could have told you that already) and it may also bring into question the current practice of including a week of placebo pills into a monthly cycle of oral contraceptives. For more information, I suggest you go straight to the source and read the article for yourselves. This sure as hell could revolutionize sexology and is at the very least very interesting.
