Learn about how to predict ovulation...
How do you know you’re ovulating? Ask a woman that and she’ll mention the ‘calendar system’ where, assuming a woman has a 28-day cycle, then she ovulates in mid-cycle. Although this method is overrated, it is not one of the most reliable methods. We stand by ovulation kits.
The ovulation prediction kit works by reading LH surges prior to ovulation. They are easy to use and generally accurate, the kit is picking up on popularity. The fertility monitor is also worth a mention as it aids in getting you pregnant faster. It’s similar to the kit as it reads changes in LH (luteinizing hormone) but also reads changes in other hormones and does not require any guesswork for couples. It’s easy to use and it tells you the best time to get pregnant.
Cervical mucus changes
As the cycle progresses, the cervical mucus increases in volume and changes texture due to the body’s rising levels of estrogen. When the mucus becomes clear, slippery and stretchy, then it’s your indication that you’re at your most fertile period.
Lower abdominal discomfort
