Some women are able to physically feel when they are ovulating. Some women sense a slight discomfort in the pelvic area. Other women can sense and feel physical changes in their cervix during ovulation.
If you cycles are irregular or you’ve never charted your cycle, it is a good idea to track your basal body temperature. As soon as you wake up in the morning, take your temperature with a basal thermometer. Write down the temperature on the calendar every day. As you see your basal temperature rising, you’ll know that you are getting closer to ovulation. You can then schedule intercourse so that your egg has the potential for fertilization.
Another less desirable but extremely effective method of predicting ovulation is to track cervical mucus. Just as you track your temperature, evaluate your cervical mucus every morning. After doing this for a while, you’ll be able to sense a change in the cervical mucus. When the mucus becomes clear and stretchy, you know that you can get pregnant because you are ovulatin
