A 28-day ovulation cycle
A cycle can range from 21 days to 35 days. This is an example 28 day ovulation cycle.
First day of your cycle
While every woman is different, most ovulate around halfway through their menstrual cycle - so around day 14 of a 28-day cycle. However, cycle lengths can vary so track your own dates - and keep note of other changes in your body - to better pinpoint your ovulation.
Ovulation occurs when a mature egg is released from the ovaries. This 12-24 hour time period is when a woman is most fertile.
It is important to have sex during this time to maximise your chance of getting pregnant.
Signs and symptoms of ovulation
As well as keeping track of the dates when you get your period, which can help you better pinpoint ovulation, there are other physical signs that you are about to ovulate.
A change or increase in vaginal mucus can be a sign that you are about to ovulate.
Your basal body temperature also drops just before ovulation, and increases immediately after you ovulate. Track your basal body temperature by taking your temperature each morning before you get out of bed.
