What is ovulation?

Ovulation is simply the release of a mature egg from an ovary. There are many ways that you can track ovulation and determine when your egg is available. To be more technical ovulation is controlled by a part of the brain which is known as the hypothalamus. There are several phases of ovulation that take place.

Periovulatory –This is more technically known as the follicular phase. During this phase the layer of cells around the ovum starts to mucify and expand. This essentially means that the uterus lining is thickening.

Ovulatory –This is more technically known as the ovulation phase. Enzymes are secreted and a hole is formed where the ovum will make its exit into the fallopian tube. This can last anywhere from twenty four to forty eight hours.

Postovulatory – This is more technically known as the luteal phase. A hormone known as LH is being produced. A fertilized egg will implant into the womb while an unfertilized egg will cease to produce hormones and be secreted along with the lining of the uterus.

Physical symptoms

Signs can be simply interpreted when you are aware that your body is giving them off. When trying to conceive it is good to know all the signs and exactly how you can figure out your ovulation days. The symptoms of ovulation are as follows:

Physical Symptoms:
• Breast tenderness
• Abdominal cramps or twinges
• Increased vaginal discharge

Basal body temperature

According to professionals more females will notice a slight increase in their body temperatures when they are ovulating. One can track their basal body temperature by taking a reading first thing in morning before rising and taking the information and placing it into chart form. Please be aware that sometimes other conditions can interfere with the tracking of proper temperatures.

Cervical Mucus

Another way that you may not be aware of in tracking ovulation is keep track of the body fluids which you secreting. There are several different kinds of discharges that you will want to be aware of so that you may know what you’re looking for.

• Immediately following your menstrual cycle one will notice a sticky/tacky discharge.
• Generally women tend to notice a wet discharge on the day of their ovulation. This discharge usually resembles raw egg whites.
• The following day of ovulation the discharge you will experience will be thicker in consistency and far less.

I would like to remind you that vaginal discharge can be apparent for many reasons than just ovulation. This is why it is so important to stay up to date with your doctor visits to ensure your body is functioning properly. Some reasons for discharge that have no relation to ovulation include but not limited to vaginal infections, douching and perimenopause.
