By Varda Agrawal,

After marriage, we .new age couples don’t wish to end up being pregnant very early. Unlike older generations, where more emphasis was given to building up a relation & enjoying the marital bliss. This honeymoon period of a married couple varies from couple to couple. For some it may be 1 year for some 2-3 years.

Then comes a phase where you wish to have a baby & start a family. But getting pregnant is not as easy as it seems…

Very few lucky couples end up getting pregnant in a singe month of trying for a baby. It is even harder for couples who live apart due to work commitments or have very busy schedules.

As for contraception, you need to have knowledge on various aspects of human fertility & various methods of contraception; similarly for getting pregnant you need to know few aspects about male & female fertility.

The knowledge of ovulation plays a crucial role in the process of getting pregnant.

Ovulation is the process of the release of an egg from the ovaries. The egg survives 2 days post ovulation in the female reproductive tract. These two days are considered most fertile days of the woman’s menstrual cycle. The chances are getting pregnant are more in these days.

So if you know your most fertile two days & you know its time to plan accordingly, and you are most likely to get pregnant!

There are various methods which are used to find out these fertile days. I have listed all of them for you… Some are age old while few are brand new!!

Calendar Method

If you have regular periods this method may work for you.

Count back 12 days and then another four from the day your next period might start.  . You may ovulate during this five-day range.

Basal Body Temperature

Basal body temperature, or BBT, is your lowest body temperature in a 24-hour period

Though we don’t feel the change, few days after ovulation, BBT rises. There is increase of only 0.4 to 1.0 degree Fahrenheit.

It can be detected by taking BBT every morning with a special thermometer.

This has to be noted everyday for few cycles.

Cervical Mucus

The days of ovulation can also be tracked by noting the vaginal discharge. The discharge that needs to be tacked is the cervical mucus, which changes during cycle.

For most of the month, you may have very little of it and feel dry. But as ovulation approaches, you’ll notice much more cervical mucus. It’ll be clear, slippery, and stretchy.

Ovulation Predictor Kit

Ovulation Predictor Kit is the most modern & accurate technique of ovulation prediction.

Every month when LH hormones are at its peak, ovulation is triggered. Ovulation predictor kit detects the peak level of LH in urine…

Every pack of i-know consists of 5 ovulation test kits.

These tests kits give you a positive result a day or two before you ovulate, giving you time to plan ahead. They work by telling you when your level of luteinizing hormone (LH) has gone up, which means one of your ovaries will soon release an egg.

After going through various methods of predicting ovulation, you will agree with me that Ovulation Test Kit is the most recommended one of….

    During my pregnancy days, I referred to this article on Ovulation test and calculated my ovulation using the online ovulation calculator .

  2. Dear Varda, thanks for this wonderful review of the various methods of ovulation prediction. I agree with each sentiment above. However, as long as change is inevitable, old is gold. I mean, I also highly regard the i-know Ovulation Test Kit but I feel that it doesn’t warrant disregard of the rest, considering their accuracy, ease of usage and more importantly, cost. I think it’s also worth noting that there are various inhibitors of ovulation in the modern world, i.e. lifestyle and dietary. So, let’s observe that before we get engulfed by anxiety after using these tools and finding unexpected results.
    Best Regards,
    Julia Morales.
