The key to these methods is the time of ovulation as well as the time that the sperm remains inside a woman’s body. An egg or ovum can survive for approximately 12 to 24 hours. In the event that multiple eggs are released, it's necessary to use 48 hours in calculating the fertile time frame. However, sperm can live for as long as five days following intercourse.
The precise time of ovulation cannot be established. Therefore, two to three days are added to the beginning and the end of ovulation. It's possible that pregnancy can occur if intercourse happens during that time frame. So, the more regular the cycle, the more these methods are effective.
Fertility Awareness Method - 4 Tips to Determine Ovulation
Tip #1: Basal Body Temperature (BBT) - The Basal body temperature is way to calculate the time of ovulation. It's measured by taking the lowest possible body temperature, which is usually while you are sleeping, or just after you wake up.
Even when a woman's menstrual cycles are irregular, her ovulation can remain normal. BBT can be a reliable way of determining when a woman is ovulating. However, there are certain factors that can also change a woman's body temperature, such as a fever. This needs to be taken into consideration when using this method.
Tip #2: Calendar Charting - In this method, a woman implements previous menstrual cycles as a guide. She figures out the approximate amount of days in her cycle. Then, she estimates the amount of fertile days. Through this method, it is possible for her to guess which days she will be most fertile.
Tip #3: Cervical Mucus Monitoring - This involves a woman observing her cervical secretions every day. After five days of menstruation, there are about three to four dry days. After that, wet days come. On these wet days, a woman is fertile.
Tip #4: Cervical Observation - Cervical observation is over 98% accurate in determining when a woman is fertile. The cervix is open and at its highest point during ovulation, and its lowest during menstruation. When a woman is fertile, it will also feel soft and wet, and will have a cloudy color.
The Fertility Awareness Method offers women many accurate ways to determine when they are most fertile. When a woman is trying to get pregnant, timing is very important, and can be more important than drugs and supplements. Women should study the above methods, and tactically approach fertility.
