Easy Signs That You Are Ovulating

To determine when you are likely to ovulate – you determine when your next period is due and count back 12 to 16 days. This gives you a the number of days when a woman most likely begins ovulating.

Using an ovulation calendar or ovulation predictor kits do the work for you, but learning as much as you can about your own body is also recommended.

Easy Signs That You Are Ovulating
1. Increase in body fluids particularly the cervical – Just before ovulation, you might notice an increase in clear, slippery vaginal secretions — if you look for it. These secretions typically resemble raw egg whites. After ovulation, when the odds of becoming pregnant are slim, the discharge will become cloudy and sticky or disappear entirely..

2. Movement of the cervix – The cervix goes through many changes as a woman ovulates. A woman may notice the clear signs of ovulation; her cervix will be soft, high, open and wet. For most women it will take some time in studying her body to be able to differentiate between what her cervix normally feels like and the changes it goes through during ovulation.

3. Middle Pain – Also called the one sided pain occurs only during ovulation hinting that thebody is ready. Although many women don't get this pain, lucky are those who get these good clues.

4. Temperature Variation – Change in basal body temperature. For most women, you will see that prior to ovulation, the basal body temperature is rather consistent. As you get closer to ovulation, you may have a slight decline, but it will be followed by a sharp increase after ovulation. The increase in temperature is the sign that ovulation has just occurred. Tracking your basal body temperature accurately over a few months can help you predict when ovulation is going to occur.

5. Breast Tenderness – Some women experience breast tenderness around ovulation, or sometimes during the whole luteal phase after ovulation. This is very normal and is simply your body preparing for a possible pregnancy by enlarging the milk glands. 
6. Increased Sexual Urge – You may notice that your sex drive is cyclical .Your sex drive may be highest at around the time before and at ovulation. Another pattern might also be normal for you. If you notice that there is a pattern to your sex drive, it can be helpful to record your observations to make predictions about your fertility.
