  • The best way to tell if/when you ovulate is by charting your cervical mucus and basal body temperature (www.fertilityfriend.com is a great help with this). Just before ovulation, when you're most fertile, your cervical mucus may resemble egg whites - it's clear, very stretchy, and there's a lot of it. The day after ovulation, your BBT goes up about half a degree, which is the only way to know for sure when you have ovulated, but not great for telling you when you're going to. You ovulate 11-15 days before the start of your period, so if your periods are regular, that's an easy way to calculate, though it's not uncommon to have an odd cycle here and there that's shorter or longer than normal, and sometimes you may not ovulate for a cycle. If you're not regular (or even if you are, really), charting is the only way to know for sure.
