Answer:

About once a month.

Explanation:

Ovulation takes place when the uterus lining is thickening, typically a week after menstruation. It's stimulated by the luteinizing hormone, which gives the ovary the "ok" signal to release an ovum.

If the ovum is not fertilized, it will not be implanted in the uterus lining, and this triggers menstruation, or the shedding of the uterus lining.
