Pictured: Human Egg Emerging From Ovary

Human Egg Emerging From Ovary

A gynaecologist captured a human egg emerging from an ovary while performing a hysterectomy.

The image of rarely seen phenomenon of a human egg emerging from the ovary was captured by gynaecologist Jacques Donnez. The image was captured by accident when a 45-year-old female patient was undergoing partial hysterectomy.

Fertile women release one or more eggs once every month. However, there is not much picture evidence of this phenomenon except for poorly captured images. Moreover, the release of the egg was thought to be a sudden event and took around 15 minutes for the translucent, yellow egg to completely emerge.

“The release of the oocyte (immature egg cell) from the ovary is a crucial event in human reproduction. These pictures are clearly important to better understand the mechanism,” Donnez, from the Catholic University of Louvain in Brussels, said.

“It really is a fascinating insight into ovulation, and to see it in real life is an incredibly rare occurrence. It really is a pivotal moment in the whole process, the beginnings of life in a way,” said Professor Alan McNeilly, from the Medical Research Council’s Human Reproduction Unit in Edinburgh.
