A very exciting time is when you are trying for a baby. Knowing your ovulation can increase your chances of getting pregnant if you are eager to have a child and start trying soon. The first day of your period and the first day of your next period are considered the first two days of your menstrual cycle. Each month, your ovary releases an egg for fertilization, which is known as ovulation. It happens about two weeks after the start of your cycle. You will therefore likely ovulate on day 14 if your menstrual cycle is 28 days. The 17th day of a 31-day menstrual cycle is when ovulation is most likely to occur.
Having intercourse when your fertility is highest can increase your chances of conceiving. In addition, you can determine your high fertility window and plan sex accordingly by paying attention to your body’s indications and signals. Here are a few simple indicators to help you figure out when you’re ovulating each month:
Change of cervical mucus:
Checking your vaginal discharge, also known as cervical mucus, can reveal a lot about your reproductive stage and even general reproductive health. Cervical mucus may be thin or cloudy if you are not in ovulation. However, the texture of the mucus changes to clear and elastic when you are pregnant. With the help of this type of secretion, the sperm can more easily reach the egg.
Boost in sex desire:
Yes, your body will notify you when the timing is right to conceive! Your hormones, such as estrogen, will rise when you are fertile and close to your ovulation date, increasing your libido (also known as sexual desire). This period of heightened sexual desire lasts about six days, according to research. It is also said that when you are in phase, you will feel sexier and attract more attention from your partner.
For a certain time each month, you may notice that your breasts feel sore, sore, sore, or heavier. This could be a sign that your ovulation cycle is about to begin. Your estrogen and luteinizing hormone levels are higher during the ovulation window, and the estrogen can stimulate the breast tissues, which can lead to breast discomfort or pain. Even after ovulation has ended, progesterone increases and estrogen decreases, which can lead to tender breasts or nipples.
Cervical Position Shift:
The cervix, which is located at the top of the vagina, changes over the course of your menstrual cycle. Your cervix gets bigger, softer, and more open as ovulation approaches. The cervix position becomes low once ovulation is over, and the cervix becomes firmer, drier and more closed. At home, ideally after taking a bath or shower, you can check the position of your cervix. With some experience, you can spot the changes before and after ovulation.
Kit for predicting ovulation:
Urine test strips, also called ovulation predictors, can be used to identify impending ovulation. If the test results are good, the body makes more luteinizing hormone (LH). This hormone releases the egg from the ovary. You can get ovulation prediction kits in various forms at a pharmacy or online. The downside is that these may not be effective for people with PCOS and the results may not always be reliable.
