What is ovulation?

Ovulation occurs when a mature egg is released form a woman’s ovary and pushed down the fallopian tube. Once it reaches the end of the tube, the egg can be fertilized by sperm. Women who have a healthy and regular menstrual cycle will ovulate every month. Women are most fertile during ovulation therefore is the best time to have unprotected sex if you want to get pregnant.

When Does Ovulation Occur?

It can be difficult to predict when ovulation will occur, but for most women, it occurs 12-16 days after the first day of the last period. The average menstrual cycle is 28-32 days, so ovulation usually occurs at the midpoint of a woman’s cycle. That being said, the timing of ovulation can vary from one cycle to the next and from one women to another.

What Are the Signs of Ovulation?

Some common signs of ovulation can include:

1.A white, sticky fluid/vaginal discharge also known as cervical mucus.
2.Slight pain on one side of the abdomen AKA at the ovaries.
3.Increased sexual intercourse drive ( increased libido).
4.Light spotting.
5.Slight increase in body temperature (note: this change can only be detected by a basal body thermometer, you need to measure your temperature every day in the morning and keep the track of that, when the temperature rises 1 or 2 degrees you are more likely to be fertile that day).
6.Bloating in the abdominal area.
7.Heightened sense of vision, taste or smell.

How Long Does Ovulation Last?

Once the egg is released down the fallopian tube, it will only live for 12-24 hours. However, sperm can live 3-5 days inside of a woman’s body. While ovulation may technically only last about a day, a woman’s most fertile time can last 5-7 days depending on how long your cycle is.

Tracking Ovulation

If you’re trying to get pregnant, tracking ovulation can help you conceive faster. There are a few different ways to do this.

One of the most basic and affordable ways to predict ovulation is by tracking changes in your cervical mucus and your body temperature using a basal thermometer.

But Ovulation kits and fertility monitors can also be used to track ovulation. An ovulation predictor kit can be highly accurate because it detects the luteinizing hormone (LH). LH levels rise just before ovulation, so these kits can predict when you are going to ovulate. However, they cannot make sure that you do ovulate.

While ovulation kits can be highly accurate, there are some factors that can cause false readings. Some women with premature ovary failure, PCOS and women in perimenopause may have higher levels of LH even when they are not ovulating.

Ok so this is the most useful information you need to know for OVULATION and conception, I hope this post was helpful to you, any question feel free to leave a comment below.
