You ovulate every month, once a month. But how do you know the exact day you're ovulating? Check these 9 signs and time intercourse to maximize conception!

Let’s take a look at the symptoms of ovulation. So let’s start with number 1:

Check your cervical mucus

Cervical Mucus. You’re going to notice an increase in your cervical mucus near the time of ovulation. It’s kind of resembles that of egg white and I’m sorry if every time you look at your egg now, you think of cervical mucus, but it really does. It looks like egg whites. You’ll have an extreme abundance of it which isn’t so fun when you’re not in the bedroom, I personally always have to wear a panty liner at this time of my cycle because you’re constantly, like, wet-like, really wet. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here So, and it’s really stretchy-that’s another thing. The egg white type of cervical mucus, like literally, if you go to check your cervix, and after you withdraw if you try to like, separate your fingers, you’ll notice that it just, it stretches without breaking. That is your fertile cervical mucus. Now it has its advantages in the bedroom because everything is nice and lubricated and makes that baby-making experience a little bit more enjoyable. And there’s a reason for it, it’s really beneficial for conceiving.

Take your basal body temperature (BBT)

Now number two typically, only applies to those who are charting and this is what it looks like when you’re charting. Because otherwise, you’re not really going to notice the change. But, your basal body temperature a.k.a. BBT will rise about a point. You’ll notice that temperature shift of about .4 degrees. Over 24-48 hour period. And it’s not something that you’re just going to wake up going, “Oh! I felt like I had a point for temperature shift.” It doesn’t happen. It really doesn’t. So, you’re going to have to take your temperature every morning to be able to notice something like this which is why I said it really only applies to those who are charting. And this again, is what the chart looks like. This blue jumpy line is my basal body temperature. And this rise right here in my chart – that is a basal body temperature rise of at least .4 degrees. That is your fertile thermal shift. And this is also the same time that you get this. Or sometimes directly before you’ll notice the increase of number 1: your cervical mucus.

Check the shape of your cervix

Okay, now number 3 has some relation to number 1 but you’ll notice if you check your cervix which I know that can be kind of weird. Some people like you don’t know what you’re looking for, like digging around in there, you’re like, “What is this?” but get to know your body. And it takes practice, but your cervix-well if you never had kids, it’s probably closed. This is the opening. But if you’ve had kids it’s probably, almost always going to be at about a 1cm. So there’s going to be a little opening to it. But, after a couple of cycles you’ll really get to know your cervix, so what its normal is, so what its not so normal is. But, when you are near ovulation or experiencing ovulation, your cervix will be considered high. So it will be hard to reach, you’ll have to go way up in there and find it. Some positions help in doing that, like raising a leg and what have you. And then sometimes it will feel soft. When you touch the opening to your cervix and you’ll be able to tell the difference when it’s firm and soft. When it’s firm, it’s kind of like the tip of your nose. And when it’s soft, it’s softer. And it actually kind of feels like the tip of your nose. And then the opening will be opened and that’s you know, important. So the semen or the sperm can get up in there. So, yeah, it takes a little bit of practice but get to know your body.

Check it everyday, you know, or midday or what have you. And eventually, you’ll kind of figure it all out. And sometimes, and again like I said it kind of feels like a doughnut but in some people like myself, mine’s kind of off to the left. And even like my midwives that I’ve had in the past, they’re like, “Where is your cervix?” Tell them that, “It’s way over there.” So I have a tilted uterus and I know I’m not the only person out there that has one. So if you have a hard time finding it, kind of angle off to one side or the other, because you could be like me. So, and that is just for my cervix, always is. Even I’m pregnant it doesn’t change. It stays, kind of tilted. So, but the way that it’s related to number one is when you go to check your cervix, this is the great time to check your cervical mucus. After you withdraw, separate your fingers slowly. Don’t just go whooh because obviously it’s going to break. But you know, just slowly, it’s not, I mean you’re not going to be checking your cervix with these two fingers but it’s just an easier example for stretching purposes or like this, or like this. But whatever. So, separate your fingers, and slowly, and you’ll notice that when, you get about an inch apart it there’s still a string connected from one end to the next, then that’s more than likely going to be your fertile cervical mucus.

Slight or light spotting

Okay, now number 4 is, you may experience slight or light spotting. Usually it’s a light pink, a very light pink color. And this can sometimes be thought of as implantation or new cycles appearing or something else, but it can also happen at the time of ovulation. So you can’t really pinpoint when you see spotting within your cycle, “Oh, it means that.” So if you know that you’re ovulating for sure, and you’re spotting, it’s just another symptom. But don’t really try to use that when on your own because it’s really bad judgment.

Cramping

Number 5 is going to be cramps. Now this one I hate the most. Matter of fact, we just got back from Galveston, we went on a little vacation with some family members and you know, when you’re on vacation you have all these plans of having fun in the bedroom as well. Mine got cancelled because of ovulation pain. It can be extremely painful. And some people don’t get any pain at all. When you deal with the pain, it’s typically going to be one side, left or right, the side that you’re ovulating on. And for somebody like me, I always know what side I’m ovulating on because it’s painful. This cycle for whatever the reason, it just so happen to be a lot more painful than usual and it was on my right side. So for me, that’s a really good indication that I’m ovulating. Like that is usually going to be for me, my very first sign.

Tender breasts

Number 6 is going to be booby tenderness. A lot of girls who get it as their cycle nears, do get it during pregnancy, usually. Sometimes it’s just when it’s your first pregnancy as your breasts have already gone through that whole change before. But, you can also get breast tenderness during the time of ovulation. This kind of goes back to the spotting though because you could get it so many times but then your cycle for so many different reasons, don’t rely on just that.

Abdominal bloating

Number 7 is abdominal bloating. Again, this can be because you have a cycle coming so don’t rely on just it. But you can get a little bit of puffiness going on down there, I did, again, on vacation while we’re at the beach and the water park, so it overly sought but it’s another sign of hey, ovulation is nearing.

Increased sex drive

Number 8, is that 8, no that’s 9, sorry! Number 8- increase sex drive. A lot of girls will notice this. It’s being like their number 1 key factor. You just find your man desirable, and you just want to jump his bones. And that doesn’t mean when you see, you know, like Channing Tatum on the big screen and you literally just want to pounce him, that doesn’t mean you’re ovulating. That’s just, he’s a hot guy so no matter who you are, you’re looking at him, you’re going to want to jump him. But, you know, typically, when you look at your husband and you find him completely desirable and you just thought if you have to have him, it’s probably an increased sex drive and it’s due to ovulation. So, I don’t think he’s going to mind.

Heightened senses

Number 9 and actually, number 9 this time. Heightened sense of taste, smell, vision, all that great stuff. I don’t typically experience this. I know some girls that have but I don’t normally so I can’t speak a whole lot about it personally. Normally for me, it’s just during pregnancy. But, I hear of a lot of girls saying, “Oh, it smells awful” or, “Oh, it just tastes awful” and they’re like, “Wait a second, is it that time of the month? I’m ovulating.”

Until next time ladies. I’ll see you later. Bye!

    The length of a woman’s menstrual cycle does not necessarily hinder fertility. Woman’s cycles often vary from month to month, and 25-30 day cycles are in the normal range. The key is to know when she is ovulating, especially with a more irregular cycle. Begin pinpointing ovulation by either taking ovulation predictor kits (OPKs), roughly midway through your cycle, or charting your basal body temperatures daily to get an accurate recording of her cycles & when she ovulates.

    You may want to try timing when you have intercourse and controlling the frequency of intercourse, which are big factors in getting pregnant. You must be aware when is your fertile window of opportunity, which include the few days before ovulation and the day of ovulation itself. This time period is deemed the best time to have intercourse for conception.  In terms of the frequency of intercourse during this period, some experts may recommend having sex every other day because of higher sperm quantity and quality.  Others agree that any intercourse within your fertile window will increase your chances of conception. Either way, it sill okay. Good luck!

    When the cervix feels the highest, extremely open, and has a soft and wet texture, this signifies ovulation. It is usually accompanied by an abundance of clear cervical mucus, with a consistency comparable to egg whites, and a sudden rise in basal body temperature (BBT). Tracking your cycles by charting these three signs daily, will help you predict your ovulation day even if your cycles are irregular, and will allow you to time intercourse on your fertile days in order to get pregnant. There are also commercially prepared ovulation predictor kits (OPK) available, which monitors the luteinizing hormone found in urine and helps keep track of ovulation.

     The brown discharge could possibly be an implantation bleeding which is a pregnancy symptom that occurs 6-10 days after fertilization. I suggest you take another test after a couple of weeks just to be sure. Or better yet, visit your doctor to have further tests done. Good luck!

    You can get pregnant faster by knowing when her ovulation days are. You guys can do this with the help of an ovulation prediction kit (OPK) which detects an LH (luteinizing hormone) surge in her urine, which indicates that ovulation is about to occur in 24-36 hours. The both of you can boost your fertility by keeping yourselves healthy: eating right, exercise regularly, getting enough sleep and avoiding tobacco and alcohol.

    I am 31 years old and have a very irregular cycle which lasts anytime between 35-60 days. I got an ultrasound of my abdomen and some blood tests done and the report was fine after which i was prescribed progesterone and folic acid tablets by my doctor. I took the progesterone tablets for about 10 days after which i had my periods in 30 days time. The next cycle after that again took 44 days. Its really difficult for me to predict my ovulation time. I have tried using the ovulation detection kit once but that did not help. Could u please suggest me the most appropriate way to find out my ovulation time as i have been trying to conceive but failed due to the vast time gap my cycle. I do not have any kids.

    The body needs time to adjust to its normal hormone production after being off any type of birth control such as Triphasil. The brown spotting can be one of your body’s response as it trying to get your hormones balances. However, if you are still concerned, I recommend you visit your doctor in order to have some tests done.

    The baby’s gender is not developed after a few months. It is determined immediately after fertilization. The mother’s egg contains an X chromosome, while the father’s sperm carries either another X or a Y chromosome. An XX combination means your baby is female and an XY combination means your baby is male. This means that the baby’s gender is determined before it is even considered a fetus. The baby’s sex can be determined through a sonogram when you are about 16-20 weeks pregnant. Abdominal pain during pregnancy is a common complaint but if you are experiencing abdominal pain along with spotting, bleeding, nausea and vomiting, it is best to call your doctor.

    Possible numbers of conditions that can lead to a lack of vaginal lubrication are changes in hormones- this happens when the estrogen level decreases due to menopausal period, medications like antihistamines and asthma medications can have a drying effect inside the body and cause reduced vaginal lubrication. Other conditions are anxiety and insufficient arousal caused by a low libido or sexual issues with partner. What we can suggest is track down your ovulation period because that is the best time to intercourse with your partner.

    Normal cycle is 28 days, and you subtract back about 14 days, to show that you ovulate on cycle day 14. Women will ovulate once per monthly cycle, roughly mid-way through their cycle. Knowing when you ovulate is a key component in getting pregnant fast, as your fertile window is only a few days surrounding your ovulation date. Even if you have intercourse all throughout the month, if you miss these few days around the day you ovulate, you will never fall pregnant. Try the ovulation calculator too.

    No, you are not late. Since ovulation takes place 14 to 16 days from the start of menstruation, your ovulation cycle is considered to be regular.

    Ovulation usually occurs 14 days after the start of your menstrual cycle. The luteal phase determines the period of ovulation within the menstrual cycle, which is generally 12 to 16 days long. You can compute the time of ovulation within your cycle by subtracting the period of your luteal phase from the length of your cycle.

I don’t have an issue with irregular periods (they are like clock work, I am just a little bit older than your “20 something”), just with conceiving. Will this benefit me if I can take it?

    Yes, your ovulation is most likely occurring if you experience abdominal or back cramps. Aside from cramps; you can manually detect your ovulation if your body basal temperature is rising, and if your cervical mucous changes in color. However; it is best that you make use of ovulation predictor kits in detecting your ovulation date if you have irregular cycles.

    Giving that a miscarriage won’t affect your chances of getting pregnant, there is still a very good chance for you to get pregnant. In fact; it is best that you start trying to conceive now, given that your body’s fertility increases after a miscarriage. Since you have hormonal imbalances due to your miscarriages, I do suggest that you accurately detect your ovulation dates using an ovulation predictor kit.

    Knowing that one’s chances of conception may vary from one couple to another, it is best that you see your ObGyn for a preconception check-up where your doctor can assess your body’s fertility. In this way, you can as well determine if you and your partner have any infertility issues. Since you’re trying to conceive, I do suggest that you try to increase your intake of whole grains, vegetables, fruits and fish. It is important that you avoid caffeine, smoking and most importantly, alcohol.

    Since you have been trying to conceive, it is best that you regulate first your menstrual cycles in order for you to accurately determine your ovulation dates. I do suggest that you try taking birth control pills for at least 2 months to help restore your body’s hormonal levels and eventually regulate your menstrual cycles. It is important that you maintain a healthy diet, avoid stress and keep yourself fit for you to speed up the regulation of your hormones.

    What you’ve probably experienced is an implantation bleeding which is one of the early symptoms of pregnancy and it occurs 6-10 days after fertilization. It is light pink to brown in color and it is often mistaken as menstruation. It is best that you take a home pregnancy test 2 weeks after your missed period for a reliable result.

    It looks like the symptoms you have just experienced are early signs of pregnancy. But a period comes because you ovulate, and you need ovulation to get pregnant. And you have not had your periods back yet. However, there is a possibility that you may have recently ovulated and was able to conceive right away. The best way to go about this is to visit your doctor and have a blood test taken to be certain if you are pregnant or not.

    It is because sperm can survive inside the body for about 72 hours. So even if you did not have sex on your exact ovulation day but have had sex before, then there is still a good chance of you getting pregnant. Also, the ovum (egg) normally survives for about 24 hours but some can last up to 48 hours further increasing your chances of conceiving.

    Hi. My name is Sianne, 40 years old and hormonal imbalance. My last period was 14 January until 21 January 2014. But i found this time my period bit strange. The first day on 14 January i found dark brown blood with a small pinhead inside. When i touch it, it seems dry old blood. The next day almost the same, but the third days becoming heavier and pink blood liquid without blood clothes occurs until the 4th days with several painful cramping. Sunday, 19 January the bleeds stops awhile and then starting again in the middle of the night, but this time getting darker like old blood (brown blood). 21 January the bleeds flowing again but still dark brown and lighter, i found egg white cervical mucus with pink blood inside (i took photo of it) because i am so worry about it. 22 January until today i found lots of egg white cervical mucus. May i get explanation about it? Thanks.
