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.

Breastmilk is best for Babies

Before proceeding, please read the important notice below.

Breastfeeding is best for babies and has many benefits, such as protecting your baby from infection while their immune system develops. It is important that you eat a healthy, balanced diet in preparation for and during breastfeeding. Infant formula is designed to replace breast milk when an infant is not breastfed. Combining breast and bottle feeding in your baby’s first weeks of life may reduce your supply of breast milk, and reversing a decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using infant formula should be considered when choosing a method of feeding. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when preparing and using infant formula, including proper sterilisation of bottles and using boiled water. Improper use of an infant formula may make your baby ill. Always consult your doctor, midwife or health care professional for advice about feeding your baby.
