You may have often heard from fertility experts that your chances of getting pregnant increase when you have sex during your ovulation period. In fact, it is often called the “window” of conception.
Ovulation is when a mature egg cell is released from the ovary, getting it ready for a sperm cell to fertilize it. Failure of fertilization leads to your monthly excretion of menstrual blood.
While there are ovulation signs that happen inside a woman’s body, some women may not experience them. They can also vary from woman to woman. If you have visited a fertility center in San Diego before, fertility experts may even have told you that the most reliable step to knowing your ovulation period is paying attention to your menstrual cycle. However, some may have the time to keep track, or have an irregular menstrual cycle that may prove this method to be difficult.
As they say, listen to your body, and that may be the best advice. Here are some signs to watch out for to know that you are ready to ovulate.
Basal Body Temperature
Basal body temperature, also known as BBT, is the temperature of a person when she wakes up early in the morning. It slightly increases right after ovulation and stays higher than usual until your menstrual period begins again. Monitor it every day in order to see when the change occurs. Use a basal body thermometer as it is more sensitive and records more accurate data than standard ones. Additionally, you may need to monitor this at least a couple of months before you can see any pattern.
When your cervical fluid looks like egg whites, it is almost time for your ovulation to begin. It may also a sign that you are already ovulating. Not all women’s cervical fluids, though, have the same appearance. The hint is that when you see changes in the amount, texture and color, this means it is easier for you to conceive at this time.
