Women get their menstruation between the ages of 9 and 15. Do you know why? It’s because they’re going through puberty, which means their reproductive organs are ready to do their main job: to reproduce. Ovaries are now ready to produce and release eggs that can turn into babies if successfully fertilised.
The phase when an egg is released from the fertilisation channel between your ovaries and uterus is called ovulation. When ovulating, the chance of getting pregnant increases as the egg has just been released. This usually happens when you’re in your fertile cycle, which starts 11 to 16 days before the actual period cycle. However, this can also vary from person to person.
There are plenty of signs noticeable when you’re ovulating, such as:
- Tender breasts
- Increased vaginal discharge
- Light cramping
- A small rise in body temperature
- Mood swings
- Heightened sex drive
You can precisely check whether you’re ovulating or not. Many brands offer ovulation test strips for you to check your ovulating time. You can also track it through various menstrual cycle apps like FLO. Usually, women who are trying to conceive check if they’re ovulating or not to achieve successful conception.
