Two oocytes recovered from the Fallopian tube at 24 and 50 h following the LH peak in plasma were examined by light microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. The possibility of fertilization was excluded by clinical and morphologic evidence. In the earliest specimen, the first polar body showed condensed nuclear chromatin, without nuclear envelope, and is interpreted as entering interphase. In the other specimen, the first polar body was undergoing division, which is interpreted as spontaneous second meiotic division.
