As far as you know, the ovulation day is approximately in the middle of your cycle. Exactly at that moment the mature ovum (non-fertilized yet) comes out of the ovaries.
There are four possible ways to find out, when your ovulation day will happen:
– the analysis of the cervical mucus – vaginal discharge becomes more watery and heavy;
– regular BT tracking, advisable for 2-3 months`, before ovulation the BBT decreases and then increases once more, it’s important to notice this jump;
– pelvic exam – your gyn will tell you, whether your cervix is ready for conception, it must be opened a bit, more soft and lifted;
– ultrasound exam – it must be done several times during the menstrual cycle, sonogram is the most precise way ‘to catch’ your ovulation.
