how long does ovulation last?

Is it more like 1 day or more like 3-4 days?

A released egg from one of the ovaries during the ovulation, travels to the fallopian tube, where conception takes place, in a period of 24 hours or a day.
The life span of spermatozoa is longer than egg life span, going up to several days inside woman's genitals, so your fertile period is not a day, but 5 days prior and 2 days after ovulation.

Best wishes!
