What are the symptoms of ovulation

You are in the phase of trying to get pregnant and want to know how your body behaves. Of course you want to know when you have ovulation to have relationships and how they will ultimately result in pregnancy. Every woman is different and we think there are no general items that we can all handle.

However, there are some guidelines that every woman should follow. First of all, we think that a woman must know her body, that is, she needs to know her cycles. There are a number of those who are not sure when they ovulate.

The problem is that menstruation is not regular and therefore it is impossible to count the fertile days of, say, calendar. You want to know what the symptoms of ovulation are, we can help.


Understanding the menstrual cycle is the first step towards the desired result. You don't have to be an expert, but knowing your body is enough. So to make things a little clearer, we can start from the moment you get your period.

The period from the first day of menstruation to ovulation is called the follicular phase. The ovulation phase until the end of this period is called lutein and lasts from 12 to 16 days. This is usually the time when you can count on fertility, that is, it will come to conception.

A reliable sign when ovulating is pain that occurs in the lower abdomen. Some women describe it as a slight spasm that they feel during menstruation. However, it should be borne in mind that pain does not occur in every woman, it depends on the body.


Another symptom is basal temperature. In order to be able to rely on this sign, it is advisable to measure the basal temperature on a daily basis using the thermometer provided for that purpose. When you notice your temperature rise, it is a sign that you are ovulating. In women who manage to become pregnant, the temperature remains high.

Cevical mucus is another indicator of your ovulation. It should also be monitored. It changes with the changes of your hormones in the body. It first becomes dry, then it is sticky, creamy before it becomes stretchy.

Fertility then begins and the mucus color is a bit like raw egg white. Other signs that may occur are sensitive and painful breasts, increased sense of smell, increased libido and increased energy levels.
