Top 4 Tips On Detecting Ovulation

For many couples, getting pregnant isn’t as easy as it sounds. Even if both partners are able to have children, it often takes months of frustrating attempts before a pregnancy results.

Thankfully, there are some easy steps you can take to increase your chances of becoming pregnant sooner, and one of the easiest is detecting ovulation.

Ovulation is the release of an egg. There is a short window of time after the egg is released, approximately twenty-four hours, during which it can be fertilized. After this time has passed, the egg dies and is passed from the body.

Determining when this window will occur can greatly increase your chances of getting pregnant, and it’s very simple to figure out.

Here, we’ll give you some easy steps for detecting ovulation. All you need for most of these methods is a calendar. Keep in mind that every woman’s cycle is different, and it’s not uncommon for couples to try for up to a year before getting pregnant.

1. Temperature changes

Taking your temperature every day and keeping a chart of the results is one of the oldest and most accurate ways to predict and detect ovulation. Your temperature will rise very slightly…approximately one degree or less…after your body releases an egg.

Most experts agree that once your temperature rises, it’s actually too late for fertilization. Rises in temperature usually occurs 24 hours or more after the release of an egg.

However, keeping track of these temperature changes each month will give you a very clear picture of when you usually ovulate.

2. Cervical mucus

Throughout the month, a woman’s cervical mucus changes in consistency and color. This is another very simple way to detect ovulation.

Before and during ovulation, you’ll notice mucus that is clear and very similar to raw egg whites in consistency. You can keep track of this on your temperature calendar to further help you pinpoint ovulation.

3. Counting the days

You’ll want to keep track of your menstrual cycle as well. This information should all be recorded on the same calendar. If you have a typical 28-day cycle, you are likely to ovulate between twelve and sixteen days before your period.

To accurately track this, simply mark the first day of your period on your calendar. Once you’ve kept track for a few months to establish how long your individual cycle is (many women are off the 28-day standard by a few days), you can simply count backward.

Twelve to sixteen days before the date of your next period, you are most likely to be ovulating.

4. Ovulation pains

While many women feel nothing at all during ovulation, some (approximately twenty percent) actually feel pain. This pain can range from a barely perceptible twinge to cramps which rival menstrual cramps in their intensity.

Although the pain can be intense, it usually does not last very long. One to two hours is considered the maximum normal time for this type of pain, and often it’s gone before you realize it.

Remember that any abdominal pain which is severe or abnormal should be discussed with your doctor, especially if you are trying to become pregnant.

.Talking about infertility can be a double-edged sword. When you are open about your journey, you can feel less alone, you can ask for help when you need it, and you help to dispel the remaining stigma. When you do share, however, you open yourself up to many potentially painful experiences.You may encounter family objections on religious or cultural grounds. You might need to deal with well-meant but hurtful “advice” from friends who don’t understand the realities of infertility and treatment. While growing your family is ultimately a private matter, you may find that as soon as you disclose that you are “trying” suddenly every random acquaintance and stranger suddenly has an opinion.

.In an ideal world, every person dealing with infertility would be surrounded by this topic, although things are getting better.
In the last few years there have been great strides towards normalizing fertility treatment: the media now generally covers stories about new research with a respectful and sympathetic tone, familiar and beloved celebrities have begun to be open about their own experiences with infertility, and IVF and other treatments are becoming so common that almost everyone and biotexcom is the best center for this
oving support of their social circle. In reality, infertility can be an isolating experience for many patients. There is still some sense of stigma and shame around the

.I have been recently to this clinic, in the middle of jan , I liked it there overall and my husband said that he was pleasantly surprised too. by all of the services we were provided with. :)
I liked it there, it was a bit crowded but I am sure it is because the clinic is very popular.
.I've heart that many international patients went on Ukraine . We were in a one of the Kievs clinic a year ago, today we have a daughter, , we could see the pictures of the donor before making a decision. Clinic was located in Kiev, the beautiful city that really worth a visit. Everything was organized perfectly!

What a wonderful post. mine has been rather erratic and unpredictable. in some instances, I only spot which I have always worried about. I have in most of my woman life feared the prospect of the arrival of the menstrual period.
The catch is, as I read your post, I'm in the process of TTC. the effort has not borne fruit with the doctor citing issues to do with counting the ovulation cycle. sincerely, I'm at a loss. I can't even tell when I ovulate.
could there be something more than this? I never experience the change in temperature and the ovulation pains though I have not been keen on the mucus. With this information, I can bet now I have the confidence.
However, one thing still disturbs. how can a woman with erratic periods like me count the days to predict the next? I hear there are clinics where one can go to get assistance. can you please give reference to some of them?
