"...the exact timing of ovulation can vary from person to person based on cycle length and stress levels. “It’s not so much the release but the process of maturing the egg that can vary,” says Kelly Acharya, M.D., an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Duke University. For some, the process of reaching ovulation may take longer than 14 days. And as you get older, that process can become a bit shorter. This Forbes article is an informational resource.
