While there are a number of ways that you can determine when you are about to ovulate- such as by measuring basal body temperature, using ovulation predictor kits, or by looking for changes in your cervical mucus- using an ovulation calculator can help you get a good idea of when you are likely to be ovulating.
Did you know #1: Pinpoint your fertile days -By using the ovulation calculator, you can make other methods of determining your most fertile days more accurate. For example, if you choose to use an ovulation predictor kit, you can use the calculator to give you a good idea of when to begin testing to prevent wasting kits because you have used them too early or late in your cycle.
Did you know #2: Know your cycles -Before you begin, determine when your last period was. You should also know how long your cycle is. For most women, the menstrual cycle is between 28 and 32 days, but if you know that your cycle is longer or shorter, you will need this information in order to get the most accurate results.
Did you know #3: Increase your chances -The ovulation calculator is designed to give you an estimate of your most fertile days each month based on the fact that most women ovulate fourteen days before their next menstrual period occurs. The closer you get to ovulation, the better your chances of getting pregnant. By knowing when you will ovulate, you can time intercourse to improve the likelihood of pregnancy.
Did you know #4: Let's make babies -Once you have determined when you are likely to ovulate, you should begin have intercourse regularly for the two days before and three days after ovulation. The more frequently you have intercourse during this period, the better your chances are of becoming pregnant.
Did you know #5: If at first you don't succeed... -For most women, it will take several attempts to get pregnant, so don’t worry if you don’t conceive in the first month that you try. Getting pregnant should be a fun and special time for you and your partner, so try not to become overly concerned about monitoring your cycle and forget to enjoy the process.
Did you know #6: Not foolproof -Remember that the ovulation calculator should not be used to help prevent pregnancy. While the calculator predicts your most fertile days, there is a possibility that you will get pregnant no matter what stage of your cycle you are in. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy, you may wish to explore the use of another form of birth control.
