When is a woman ovulating?
Each woman should first find out when she is ovulating. There are several ways to do this. One of the easiest ways is to purchase a basal thermometer and start charting your temperatures. You could also use a free fertility chart to record and keep track of your basal temperatures. Make sure you use a basal thermometer, which is the most accurate type, for this purpose. You should take your temperature as soon as you wake up, before you get out of bed, go to the bathroom, or do anything else. Try to take your temperature at the same time every morning if you can, so this way your chart will be more precise. The best time to have sex is when temperature drops, but before it rises again.
One other way to find out when woman is ovulating is by using an ovulation predictor test. Ovulation kits measure the amount of lutenizing hormone in your body, because right before you ovulate your body releases a large amount of LH. The test kits are easy to use and very similar to a pregnancy test. You will see a reference line and then a sample line to compare your results. Once you show a positive test for ovulation, you should have intercourse within twenty-four hours.
Perhaps the easiest way of predicting ovulation is simply watching your own body for cues; some women feel cramping on one side when they ovulate. Ovulation pain should not be the only thing you watch for but it is one of the indicators of ovulation. You should also keep an eye on your cervical mucous, because it will pick up several days before ovulation. When your cervical mucous starts to look like egg white and becomes slippery, this is the best time for to get pregnant. The slippery consistency helps carry the sperm up the vaginal canal.
