Fertility and ovulation
Most couples only think about fertility after they’ve decided that they want to get pregnant.
Before this, fertility probably played a rather insignificant role in their lives because during that time, their focus was instead on a reliable form of contraception.
This is why few women actually know when their fertile days are. Before trying to get pregnant, many women are usually unaware of the symptoms which are characteristic of the fertile cycle phase.
A woman can conceive only when she has sex during the few days around ovulation. Therefore, on most other days in her cycle, a woman is infertile. Many women can recall from biology lessons at school that a woman is supposed to ovulate around the 14th day of her cycle. While this may be the case for some women, there is not enough detailed information to say it applies to everyone.
The fertile phase within the cycle can vary from cycle to cycle, especially since cycles and ovulation can be influenced by outside factors such as diet, stress, and illness.
Because there are so many things that can cause variations within each cycle, identifying the fertile days and ovulation is often difficult. Knowing when you are ovulating will maximise your chances of getting pregnant by allowing you to coordinate your love life with your ovulation.
Online calculation tools used to automatically calculate your fertile days and ovulation using the dates of your last menstruation are not as effective as fertility monitors.
The results are based on static calculation formulae which doesn’t take into account your personal conditions. Couples who regularly have sex on the dates calculated by such tools are often unsuccessful at getting pregnant because the fertile phase was calculated incorrectly.
On the other hand, there are entirely natural symptoms you can use to indicate your personal fertile days and ovulation periods, which are the most promising days for conceiving. Read on to find out which symptoms characterise fertile days and how you can monitor your cycle effortlessly.
