Ovulation Symptoms – How to Recognize Them

September 17, 2012

When you are trying to have a baby, you should be able to identify your ovulation symptoms. Knowing the symptoms that you can experience during ovulation will help to determine the right time to get pregnant. Continue reading as the information below will help you to know these symptoms in order to improve your chances of having a baby.

First and foremost, you need to understand that ovulation is a must when any woman is trying to get pregnant. Essentially, two things must happen for you to conceive: a fertile egg has to be released and the sperm must connect with that egg.

Unfortunately, this will not happen easy for some women. However, you don’t have to play the guessing game to know when you are ovulating. There are certain symptoms and signs that women experience before or during ovulation. You could use these symptoms to get pregnant or do the exact opposite to prevent pregnancy.

How to Recognize Your Ovulation Symptoms

Chart your body temperature

One of the easiest ways to recognize ovulating symptoms is to make note of the changes in your daily body temperature. When ovulating, your body will release hormones and this cause your body temperature to increase. To recognize this symptom, you can chart your daily body temperature before getting out of bed each morning. A rise in temperature will mean that you are ovulating. Bear in mind that this increase can last up to the first day in your cycle, but the most fertile period would be when you first notice the increased temperature.

Abdominal pain

If you are feeling abdominal pain on one side, this could be an ovulation symptom. Most women experience what is called a middle pain for several hours when ovulating.
Breast Sensitivity:
This is one of the ovulation symptoms that many women will experience. During or before ovulation, you might feel an increased sensitivity within the nipple and breast area. This is triggered by the increased hormones. If you feel soreness in your breast, the symptom should go away after 2 or 3 days.

Cervical mucus changes

For most women, the production of cervical mucus as well as changes in the mucus will be a symptom of ovulation. During the time when you are ovulating, the cervical mucus must be almost slippery and clear with the consistency of uncooked egg white. When the cervical fluid changes, this will allow the sperm to reach the egg easily.

These are just some of the ways that you can recognize your ovulation symptoms. If you want, you could also find many products that can help you to monitor your fertility accurately and identify the symptoms of ovulation. Just remember that knowing these symptoms and your most fertile days will help to improve your chances of having a baby.
