Irregular Ovulation

If your ovulation cycles are not regular, it can be very difficult to get pregnant. There is only a short window of time each month when a woman is able to get pregnant. That is because the egg only lives for around 12-24 hours after it is released, so conception must occur during that time frame. This is why ovulating at a time other than the time you expect can really hurt your chances of getting pregnant. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Tracking ovulation

Luckily, there are lots of different ways that women can track their ovulation so that they can always know for sure when their fertile time is. Tracking your temperature with a basal body thermometer is one way to figure out when you are ovulating. You will have to track your cycles for a few months until you notice the pattern of when you are ovulating, based on the day when your temperature increases just a bit. You can also use ovulation predictor kits or buy ovulation test strips in bulk, to test for the LH surge to denote when ovulation arrives.

Signs of ovulation

You can also pay attention to cervical mucus to find out when you are ovulating. When cervical mucus is clear, stretchy and resembles egg whites, that is considered to be the best quality cervical mucus and usually means that ovulation is near. A great option for women who ovulate irregularly is to use an over the counter ovulation predictor kit each day. If you test your urine every day, you will be able to notice when you are fertile and can plan sex accordingly. As you can see, there are plenty of ways to still get pregnant even if you ovulate late.
