Set Your Watch to Ovulation Time!

When trying to conceive, it’s extremely important to know your signs of ovulation. Ovulation is key when it comes to increasing your chances of getting pregnant and because every woman is different and every woman ovulates at different times, you should take a couple of cycles and start observing your body and the signals it gives you!

Here are just a few cues that it’s ovulation time (and time to get the Barry White music out!):

  • Increase in body fluids ( basal temperature.
  • Cervix becoming softer
  • Increased sex drive
  • Light spotting
  • Breast tenderness
  • Abdominal bloating
  • If you'd like to remove the guess work or avoid dealing with your cervical mucus, you can always buy an ovulation predictor kit. They are able to pinpoint your date of ovulation 12 to 24 hours in advance by looking at levels of luteinizing hormone, or LH, which is the last of the hormones to hit its peak before ovulation actually occurs.

    Whatever way your body lets you know that you're ovulating, have fun and good luck! To learn more about fertility news, issues or advice, please visit Fertility Authority or as always, stop by FertileThoughts for emotional support! You can also click here to find a fertility doctor near you.
