Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us for information on how to calculate when you ovulate and understanding your menstrual cycle.

In the first half of the cycle, estrogen levels start to rise. Estrogen makes the lining of the uterus (womb) grow and thicken. This lining of the womb is a place that will nourish the embryo if a pregnancy occurs.

t the same time the lining of the womb is growing, an egg, or ovum, in one of the ovaries starts to mature. At about day 14 of an average 28-day cycle, the egg leaves the ovary. This is called ovulation.

Keep in mind, women with cycles that are shorter or longer than average may ovulate before or after day 14. There are ovulation tools available to help you calculate ovulation.

Some women rely on signs such as changes in cervical fluid, changes in basal body temperature, and changes in cervical position or firmness.

Cervical fluid that resembles “egg whites” is a sign that you are near ovulation or are ovulating.

For most women, prior to ovulation, the basal body temperature is rather consistent. As you get closer to ovulation, you may have a slight decline, but it will be followed by a sharp increase after ovulation. The increase in temperature is the sign that ovulation has just occurred. Tracking your basal body temperature accurately over a few months can help you predict when ovulation is going to occur.

During ovulation, the cervix will be soft, high, open and wet.

If the egg is not fertilized, it will break apart. Then, hormone levels drop, and the thickened lining of the uterus is shed during the menstrual period.

Anonymous, keeping track of you menstrual cycles over a period of several months should give you the answers to your questions.
