All about ovulation

Ovulation occurs once per menstrual cycle and most often an egg is released. It can happen that several eggs are released and multiple birth risks occur.

An egg has a life 24 hours. Once laid, it goes into the fallopian tubes where, if it meets a spermatozoon, it has a chance to be fertilized. Spermatozoa, on the other hand, have a lifespan of 3 to 5 days. It is therefore always better to have repeated sexual intercourse, from four days before the supposed date of ovulation, when one has a desire for a child.

Ovulation occurs after the menses and even sometimes during. It is difficult to calculate ovulation since the beginning of the period. However, the rules always arrive 14 days later. So if you have a short cycle of 22 days for example, your ovulation is the eighth day after the first day of your period. If your cycle is long and hard, say, 32 days, your ovulation occurred on the eighteenth day of your cycle.

To calculate the date of ovulation, which is also the date of greatest fertility in women, you can practice a urine test sold in pharmacies. It detects the presence of the hormone releasing ovulation. This test is much simpler than the temperature curve, quite restrictive. If your cycles are regular, you have a chance to know when in the cycle you are fertile and encourage your partner to have a relationship if you want a baby. Be careful however: do not test every month to determine your ovulation moment: once positive, it is already almost too late to get pregnant!
 
Our advice
Generally, women do not feel their ovulation occur. But sometimes they feel breasts tension or pelvic congestion.
