  • You can look for signs the easiest is looking at your discharge...eggwhite and stretchy usually means ovulation, but not always. I do not ovulate and still get it. Then there is learning your cervix position that usually takes a little bit. High, soft, open is fertile. Low, hard, and closed not fertile.

  • You can temp and chart. That is what I did because OPK's were not accurate for me. Like the other poster said, you can monitor your cervical mucus, but that is not always a sure thing. Your best bet is temping with a basal body thermometer and charting your temps on www.fertilityfriend.com.

  • Check your temperature first thing in the morning (even before brushing your teeth because the temp of the water will throw it off). Chart it at the first day of your cycle (the first day you bleed) until the last day of your cycle (usually 28-35 days later, the day before you start to bleed). That is called your basil temperature. You should see a jump in the temp around the 10th-17th day up to around 99.0 by mouth. Those are the days you are ovulating. Anyone who has an oral thermometer can do this and it is cheap and easy. Those are the optimum days to try and conceive, but you can get pregnant anytime during your period, when you're not bleeding. Everyone kind of ovulates on a different schedule, so while most people ovulate around the 14th day in their cycle, some will ovulate around the 8th or as late as the 21st. And it can differ per person per month.
