Fertility – How to find out when you are ovulating ?

We know that women tend to have a regular menstrual cycle of approximately 28 days (though I have known some women with a fourteen-day right up to a 49-day cycle). We know that during this cycle, the egg is released, your womb prepares a cushioned surface to accept it, and if the egg is not fertilized it leaves the body along with the lining in the form of your period. We know that around day fourteen we’re at our most fertile and likely to conceive. Therefore, women are most likely to get pregnant around the time they release an egg. However, don’t count on it! Ovulation can happen at any time, even during your period. Even during my period? Yes. Even though this is the least likely time for you to get pregnant, it can and does happen. Sperm can live in our bodies for days waiting for an egg.

Did you know that until the 1980s, fertility signs (indicators your body gives you to reveal the time when you are most likely to conceive) were not very well understood, even by doctors? After that decade, awareness and research grew and researchers and medical professionals began to investigate more methods of ovulation detection. Multiple observations from a variety of researchers contributed to our current understanding of the meaning of our fertility signs. The basics of self-observing and interpreting fertility signs were not routinely taught to large populations of women until the late 1990s. So how did women before the 1990s detect their ovulation? I’m guessing they didn’t.

The universe has given us a wonderful gift, this amazing thing that happens in our bodies. You have the means within you to know when you are ovulating. Whether it’s your instinct or desire, trust it.

It may sound unreal or “too easy” that just forgetting to count the days and instead having fun can help you conceive, but throughout my research, I’ve found evidence that it definitely can.

Good luck 🙂
