ovulation signs

Every woman has a different time of ovulation. Some can tell well in advance as they ovulate on the same day every month. Others may not have such precise clockwork. There are certain signs of ovulation in women. As getting pregnant is very closely linked with ovulation, it is important to understand when and how ovulation happens.

Here are a few symptoms that indicate you’re ovulating:

  • Rise in body temperature: With the release of the egg, your body temperature will rise sharply. Progesterone is produced when ovulation takes place and this is responsible for the rise in the body temperature.
  • Cervical fluid:The cervical fluid changes and becomes thick and white, like egg whites. The texture as well as the amount of the fluid changes. Ovulation generally occurs when you have the maximum amount of wet fluid.
  • Pain in lower abdomen: The discomfort can range from mild pain to severe cramps. Some women experience it for a few minutes and in some it can last for hours. Slight cramps or pain on the side of the pelvis can also be felt sometimes.
  • Changes in the cervix: The cervix becomes soft, high, wet and open. These are clear signs of ovulation in women. Sometimes, it takes time to know the difference between a normal cervix and the cervix at the time of ovulation as the difference might not be known.
  • Some light spotting may also be noticed before the actual period starts.
  • Breasts tend to feel tender and there is generally a noticeable abdominal bloating. This could be due to water retention.
  • Some women may have an enhanced sense of smell, vision or taste.
  • Some women experience moodiness or high boosts of energy just before ovulating.
  • Some may experience headaches and nausea due to hormonal changes.

Women can tell the time of their ovulation just by being observant about their bodies. Ovulation in women occurs at varying times in their cycles, and if attention is paid to the signs of ovulation, successful conception is possible.
