Hypothetically speaking...

A women ovulates and releases 2 eggs. Only one is fertilized. Does she still have a perioid?

I'm going to say no. The lining is what the menstruation typically consists of. The lining is not shed if you become pregnant. The egg is tiny... not visible to the human eye. It could leave your body without you (general you) seeing it.

It could be absorbed by the body, correct?

The cervical mucus plug doesn't form till after implantation. (appx 5-7 days after fertilization) I am guessing that is more than enough time for the egg to exit ?? But your body would just absorb the unfertilized egg if it was trapped inside.

I'm probably wrong but I always thought the egg was gone by menstruation. Maybe that was just my own crazy way of thinking so I was less sad about it.

Depends on if the fertilized egg implants on not. If it implants and a pregnancy occurs, no she does not usually. Some women get periods while pregnant. If the egg does not implant, then yes, AF whill come as no pregnancy occurred.

The egg only lives 24 hours after ovulation. If not fertilized it is reabsorbed in the tube. It never even makes it to the uterus.
