As we all know, during ovulation, sexual intercourse, sperm and egg encounter, the chance of pregnancy is greatly improved, so couples during pregnancy preparation pay more attention to ovulation. However, there are many pregnant couples who are confused about the calculation of ovulation period, so that they fail to seize the best opportunity every month, resulting in delay.

In fact, women with regular menstruation also have a better calculation of ovulation, usually 11 to 17 days before their next menstruation. Women’s luteal phase is basically fixed for 14 days. The next 14 days before menstruation is ovulation day, and the first three days and the second four days after that day, which is what we call ovulation period.

1. Calculation

Normal menstrual cycle 21-35 days, each person is different. Just said, everyone’s luteal phase is 14 days, ovulation about 14 days, menstruation. Therefore, we can take the “15 day rule”, that is, the first day of next menstruation minus 15 days is the ovulation period of this month.

2. Look

Of course, there are many programs whose menstruation is not regular, and it is difficult to grasp the calculation of days, so we can take the method of observation.

Affected by estrogen and progesterone, cervical mucus changes gradually before and after ovulation, which you can gradually feel. In addition, 1-2 days before ovulation, the cervical mucus is thin, transparent and in the shape of drawstring. The drawstring length can reach 7-10CM. After ovulation, the influence of pregnancy hormone becomes thick paste. When such a situation occurs, you can judge that you are about to ovulate and be ready.

3. Measurement

Whether the ovulation period comes or not can also be judged according to the change of basic body temperature. 24 hours after ovulation, the basal body temperature will rise 0.3-0.5 degrees, lasting about 12-14 days. But it should be noted that waiting for the temperature to rise before having sex is not the best time to conceive. Therefore, the monitoring method of basic body temperature is only a method to verify the arrival of ovulation, not a prediction method.

In addition to body temperature monitoring, you can also judge whether ovulation through B ultrasound.

There is a gradual maturation process from small follicle to large follicle, which starts to be detected in the middle and late period of follicle. The follicle with diameter of more than 18mm is mature, so that sexual intercourse can be arranged later. However, this method is troublesome, but it is useful for people with long-term infertility and ovulation promotion.

4. Inspection

Just like pregnancy test, ovulation can be predicted by test paper.

LH in urine test is a more accurate method to predict ovulation. Generally speaking, the level of LH is the highest 24-36 hours before ovulation. When the test is positive, ovulation will occur the next day.

In addition to the above several methods can determine the ovulation period, you can also feel the arrival of ovulation period according to some of your own physical reactions.

1. Inferior abdominal distension and pain

During ovulation, you may feel a slight drop in the hilum of the liver and a slight pain in one side of the lower abdomen.

2. Temperature rise

As mentioned above, the ovulation period can be calculated according to the change of body temperature. In addition to temperature rise, the fluctuation of hormone secretion before and after ovulation may also cause a small amount of uterine bleeding.

3. Secretion increase

During ovulation, the amount of secretions will increase significantly, and you will feel the wetness of underwear. The increase of secretions lasts for 2-3 days, which is the best time for pregnancy.

4. High sexual desire

During ovulation, women’s sexual desire will be particularly strong, which is a physical signal that women want to be pregnant.

Conclusion: in the stage of pregnancy preparation, we should pay close attention to the best stage of pregnancy – ovulation. In order to accurately ovulate, we can choose the most suitable and easy to implement method through calculation, measurement, observation and test.
