If you are trying to get pregnant, it is time to get to know your menstruation and ovulation cycle on more intimate terms.
You need to determine the length of your cycle as well as have the ability to identify the smallest signs and symptoms of ovulation. The signs, length of your individual cycle and period of ovulation may differ from another woman.
However, there are few factors that you need to take into consideration to enable you to draw up a schedule and accurately identify the ideal time to make a baby. Let the process of getting to know your own signs add to the excitement of getting pregnant rather than letting it become a mundane task.
1. A Log Book
It may seem a little strange at first, but you need to start keeping a log, especially if you have irregular periods and are unable to accurately predict when you will start menstruating.
Start logging on the first day of your period and take note of any pertinent details such as:
– Your mood and how you are feeling.
– Physical changes such as bloating or an increase in body temperature.
– The length of your menstruation and the period in between.
You should make notes throughout your cycle and look for any patterns that may emerge.
2. An Ovulation Kit
Identifying patterns in your behavior and physiology will help you identify when you are ovulating. However, if you are having difficulty noting and identifying changes, you may want to start employing some measuring tools. These tools and tracking techniques are available in most types of ovulation kits.
You may also benefit from gaining more knowledge about ovulation, how it works and why it is so necessary to getting pregnant easily. Knowing when you are ovulating is the first step to becoming pregnant. Keep in mind that measuring and identifying the signs of ovulation may be easier for some women than others.
3. Additional Signs
If you are still struggling to accurately identify when you are ovulating you may need to get even more intimate and in tune with your body. You may be a little reluctant at first but it is essential to take every detail into account.
Take note of any changes in your cervical mucous. A change in consistency, volume or color could be a sign that you are ovulating. The tiniest twitches or twinges in your lower abdomen could indicate that an egg has been released by one of your ovaries.
Don’t just take note of these events and record them, but share them with loved ones to increase your excitement about ovulating and the increased likelihood that you may be getting pregnant soon.
If you are trying to get pregnant a combination of an intimate knowledge of your own body and the correct use of an ovulation kit, will help you determine when you are ovulating and put you on the fast track to getting pregnant.
