Sadly I know nothing about turtle reproduction. But I expect like other creatures females have eggs in their bodies over their lifetime but I'm not sure what triggers them to lay them. It is also possible that once eggs are produced and laid she may continue to on an irregular basis for awhile. Have you tried to find info on Austin's Turtle page? They have an extensive species area. We have rather limited reference info I'm afraid. I wish we could help more.
It is possible one of our members might be able to answer this question.... hoping one will chime in here.
