What is ovulation?

When your body releases an egg and pushes it out through the fallopian tube, and the egg is ready to be fertilized, that is ovulation. After leaving the ovary, an egg can only live for 24-48 hours. This time is the time of ovulation. Your body normally only releases one egg at a time during ovulation, but sometimes two eggs are released. If the eggs are fertilized during ovulation, this is when twins occur!

How ovulation works

You normally ovulate every month. If the egg is fertilized during the time of ovulation, you will become pregnant. If conception doesn’t occur, then blood and the unfertilized egg will be shed. This is what is known as menstruation. Much like your menstrual cycle, your ovulation cycle can be disrupted by several different factors. Stress, illness, or a drastic change in daily life can disrupt your ovulation cycle, or in some cases cause it to cease all together. Keep in mind that if you don’t ovulate, you can still menstruate. Also, if you don’t menstruate, you can still ovulate. They are not dependent on one another like you might think they would be.

Calculating ovulation

If you are trying to get pregnant, one of the best tips you will receive is the advice to learn how to track and chart your own cycles. If you can pinpoint when you will be ovulating you can plan when to have sex so that you will be able to conceive. You start counting on the first day of your menstrual period. That is the first day of your cycle. If you count from there, most women ovulate during days 11-21 of your cycle. These days are the “fertile days” of your cycle, or the days that you can get pregnant. It is important to track your cycle so that you know when you can get pregnant, since ovulation can occur on different days of your cycle each month.

Track your ovulation

One of the most important things a woman can do is learn about her ovulation cycle and learn how to track it. A lot of things can affect your cycle so it is important to learn as much as you can about it and get it nailed down as much as possible. At first, charting and tracking your cycle can be very confusing, but there are a lot of kits and online forums out there that can help make it easier. If you learn to chart your cycle, you will not regret it. It can really be helpful for women who are trying to conceive.

    A good option for you would be to see your doctor in order to get checked for possible underlying conditions that may be impairing your fertility and for you to have the best options for fertility that will suit your needs. The same goes for your partner, for both of you need to be in good fertility health in order to conceive. It will also help increase your chances of pregnancy to reduce stress and anxiety to a minimum, for they can have a significant impact on one’s ability to conceive. Stay positive and keep trying. Good luck!
