How to Calculate Ovulation

Calculating ovulation period is not so difficult. If you are trying to get pregnant and want to learn calculating ovulation, read on. Find tips on how to determine your ovulation cycle right here.

Ovulation can be easily calculated and determined if you have a regular menstrual cycle and there is no disturbance because of medication, stress or some other factor. Ovulating days are considered as the most fertile days and those who have a desire to conceive following the nature’s rule, can get pregnant during these days.

If you have a normal menstrual cycle and history, you will find calculating the ovulating days is not as difficult as you assumed. Since the hours are limited, it is very important you calculate accurately specially when you are trying to get pregnant.

Steps to Determine Ovulation

Have a quick look at the steps for determining your ovulation.

Length of Your Cycle

Find out how long is your cycle. The days of the cycle is calculated from the first day of the menstruation of the last month to the first day when it starts the following month. Usually women have cycle that ranges between 28 – 30 days. If your cycle takes longer, you will have to consult your doctor and make use of other methods to calculate ovulation.

Counting the Number of Days

Count 14 days backward from the day your next period is going to start. However, if you are trying to get pregnant, it is advisable that you have intercourse from 3 days before that calculated date to 2 days after that day. Use your personal calendar to mark out days and dates so that there is no confusion or uncertainty.

Measuring Body Temperature

Record your body temperature during the expected ovulating days. The temperature will spike one-half to one degree during those days. Remember, you should take your temperature early in the morning. Use basal thermometers as they are sensitive and will give you exact fluctuation.

Checking Mucus Cycle

Check your mucus cycle as this is also one of the signs of ovulating. You will have a sticky or tacky secretion from your vagina.

Marking Changes in the Body

Some women actually feel the difference and can make out exactly when they are ovulating. They have a typical discomfort in their lower abdominal area.

Determining Ovulation Signs

Determine your signs of ovulation and then analyse and determine your days. It can be done by simply observing your body and the type of secretions between the period days of two consequent months.

Using Ovulation Kits

You can also take help from an over-the-counter ovulation kit and get exact calculation of ovulating days following the instructions carefully. If you are unable to determine ovulation, you can get in touch with your doctor and get your blood tests and ultrasound done. This usually has to be done with women having infertility issues.

Determining ovulation has helped many women get pregnant in a natural way. However, ovulation also gets affected due to stress and depression and it has been observed that if a woman goes through infertility issues, she automatically feels depressed and disheartened.

No matter whether you are trying to get pregnant in natural ways or artificial, it is very important that you stay happy and think positive about everything. Proper diet and yoga as well as pranayamas are extremely helpful in such situations. There are some yoga asanas that actually help women get pregnant even if they have been trying since long time.

If you find that everything is normal along with your relationship, you should consult your doctor and if possible try out specific yoga asanas before starting medication. It is always good for the health of the coming child and the would-be mother that she goes natural way of conceiving.
