How You Can Find Your Most Fertile Days and Reasons You May Have a Problem with Ovulation
3Ovulation predictor kits
Almost every pharmacy these days have ovulation prediction kits available which can be bought without any prescriptions too. The test is similar to a pregnancy test which detects specific elements in your urine. You need to carefully read and follow the instructions and if you get a dark band as a test result it means you will start ovulating soon it could be in within a day or two.
4Cervical mucus starts to change
Cervical mucus is mostly water but its thickness changes according to the days in the cycle because of the hormones in the body called estragon getting super active during the fertile days. If you are in your fertile window the mucus will get clear, almost transparent and increase in volume.
5Changes in saliva
Although it’s not a traditional way of checking whether you are near your fertile days or not but it is said that if our spit makes a pattern of frost on a glass you are close to ovulation. Of course, eating, drinking and even smoking habits can mask the outcome but there are specialised microscopes which are used to test the saliva contents for the purpose. So you can just give a sample of your saliva to pathological lab and they can clearly tell you your ovulation periods.
During ovulation a woman’s body produces an extra dosage of reproductive hormones which makes your breast feel tender at times and also there is a feeling of hardening and sore nipples. In some cases, it could hurt pretty bad for some women.
