One of the most important things you can find out when you are trying to become pregnant is when you are ovulating. Ovulation occurs when your body releases an egg in the hopes of it becoming fertilized. If you have intercourse when you are not ovulating, it will be extremely difficult for you to become pregnant. Here are three ways you can determine when you ovulate. Claim Your 20 Free Ovulation Tests – Click Here

Basal Thermometer

This tool is one that you use every day first thing in the morning. It helps to track your daily temperature. This is important because when you ovulate, your temperature will spike slightly. The important thing to remember when you use a basal thermometer is to use it first thing in the morning. You should also avoid moving around a lot before you take your temperature. Even slight movements can make it harder for you to receive accurate results.

Ovulation Predictor Kit

An ovulation predictor kit is also something that you can use to determine when you are ovulating. It works similarly to a pregnancy test by testing your urine for a particular hormone that is only present when you are ovulating.

Like the basal thermometer, you will want to use this kit every morning. This helps to make sure your urine is not tainted by other things that you consume during the day. Some women also take one every day a few hours after lunch. In some instances, hormones will change throughout the day and this could help you determine when you are ovulating sooner rather than later.

Cervical Mucus

Finally, you can track your ovulation by checking your cervical mucus. This is a substance that is created naturally by the body. While it is not necessarily required to become pregnant, it is something that can help make it easier. Cervical mucus protects the sperm and helps it swim toward the egg.

In order to track ovulation by your cervical mucus, you will need to check the consistency of it. Immediately following your period, your cervical mucus will be dry. As you grow closer to the time you ovulate, your cervical mucus will thin out and become stretchy. When you are ovulating, your cervical mucus will look similar to egg whites.

These are all things you can do to track your ovulation cycle. The important thing to remember is that you need to be consistent with whichever tracking process you use. Being consistent is the best way to determine the exact time you are ovulating. When you do determine you are ovulating, make sure you are having intercourse every other day to give yourself the best chance of becoming pregnant quickly.
