Want To Get Pregnant? Use These 5 Tips To Time It Right.

What Is Ovulation & How to Do Ovulation Test at Home

If you’re trying to get pregnant (or trying not to), the key is to know your ovulation period. Not your period, but your ovulation period.

Before scientists and doctors told us about our bodies, getting pregnant was as much a miss as a hit. If you were looking to get pregnant, you wouldn’t always succeed. And if you weren’t trying to, heaven forbid you forget to take precautions; Aunt Flo doesn’t turn up when expected.

No one spoke about it and no one ever told us what is ovulation. Let us help to take the complex out of this scenario and make it easier for you to understand your ovulation cycle.

You don’t always need fancy kits to know when you’re at your most fertile. Your body gives out clear signs of ovulation, if you know how to read them. These in-house ovulation tests can show you how to understand your body’s rhythm. And instead of stressing over when to try to get pregnant, you can bring back the fun into spontaneous sex.

How To Understand If You Are Ovulating

Calendar or Rhythm Method

If your menstrual cycle is regular, you can be sure that you will almost always ovulate 14 days before your next period. But even the most regular 28 day cycle will not always be 28 days. Stress, emotions, change in routine, all can affect the cycle. With Whisper Ultra you can take care of these surprises!But the question still remains - how do you determine the 14th day?

  • Keep track of your menstruation for six months
  • Subtract 18 days from your shortest menstrual cycle
  • Subtract 11 days from your longest cycle
  • The timeframe you get is when you’re most likely to get pregnant

Basal Body Temperature Readings (BBT)

Your temperature goes up by about a degree for three days after ovulation. While this is not the most accurate test for determining fertility, it can give you an idea of your body’s rhythm.

Use a basal body thermometer for checking your body temperature. Do it for several months every day before you get out of bed and soon you will be able to predict when you will ovulate.

Cervical Mucus Method

You might be aware that your vaginal discharge changes during your menstrual cycle. Your vagina is driest just after your period. The discharge then becomes cloudy and sticky, and as you get closer to ovulation, it becomes clear, wet and slippery. The day your secretions are the wettest is when you are most fertile.

Symptothermal Method

A combination of the above three methods is also used by some women. As your observations proceed, you will begin to become more aware of the small changes in your body. Softer skin, breast tenderness, heightened senses and sexual excitement are all indications of hormonal changes that occur during ovulation.

Gadgets and kits

There are several ovulation monitors and over-the-counter kits that can help you determine your fertility periods and your ovulation cycles. Follow the instructions, and 9 out of 10 times you will know when you are ovulating.
