One of the most common ways that women track their ovulation is using an ovulation calendar. This guide will help explain what an ovulation calendar is, how they work, and the benefits of using them.
Calendar Tip #1: How it works - Ovulation calendars are basically calendars that track your menstrual cycle and give you a rough estimate of when you are ovulating. There are no special tests that you need to use, and using an ovulation calendar is very easy.
Calendar Tip #2: Make your own - All you will need to do is grab a pen, and mark the days when you have your period. As long as you can keep it up, you will learn about the length of your menstrual cycle, your ovulation time, as well as your most fertile days. For conception purposes, as well as informational purposes, ovulation calendars are quite useful.
Calendar Tip #3: Know your cycles - Ovulation calendars use available both online and offline, and they use a certain math formula to pinpoint when your ovulation time will be. Most of the time, ovulation calendars that are set for the average menstrual cycle of 28 days will expect ovulation to occur during day 14 or 15. This is because ovulation calendar use the rule of thumb that the big day occurs halfway during your menstrual cycle.
Calendar Tip #4: Not for everyone - Longer menstrual cycles, as well as shorter cycles, have to be adjusted in order for the ovulation calendar to work properly. Some ovulation calendars allow for this, and others don't, so if you have an extra long or extra short menstrual cycle, you will need to use a more flexible ovulation calendar.
Calendar Tip #5: Get pregnant faster - Learning how to use an ovulation calendar can be an important step toward successful pregnancy. Pinpointing your day of ovulation will be able to tell you when you should try to conceive, and also tell you when your fertility no longer is in its prime. During non-fertile times, the chances of getting pregnant decrease dramatically. In this case, an egg will not be present in your uterus – meaning that you're unable to conceive during this time of the month.
Calendar Tip #6: Timing is everything - For couples with busy schedules, an ovulation calendar will help give women advance notice for times when conception is possible, which makes timing intercourse a lot easier. Moreover, there are plenty of free ovulation calendars to choose from on the Internet.
There are some cases where an ovulation calendar simple won't work. Ovulation calendars function on the regularity of your period, and also under the assumption that you ovulate while you are on your cycle. These assumptions are the same for everyone, so it's important to figure out whether an ovulation calendar is right for you. Women who have irregular cycles won't actually be able to predict their ovulation using the calendars that they find online. If that's the case, you'll want to discuss your options with your ObGyn and they will be able to go over the options available to you.
