Follow these signs to know if you are ovulating

+1 vote

Observing the following signs could help you understand if you are ovulating.

Change in basal body temperature:

This is the lowest temperature recorded, which is usually soon after getting up in the morning. This temperature is usually consistent throughout the cycle, except for when ovulating. During ovulation there is a steep increase in the temperature which could be used as a sign to determine ovulation. To check this temperature, a basal body thermometer is required; which is available here.

Change in cervical mucus:

Cervical mucus is the fluid produced in the cervix which could be taken as a means to identify ovulation. During ovulation the cervical mucus resembles egg white – clear and slippery. In the days soon after menstrual discharge, it is usually absent, followed by cloudy white during follicular development, egg-white during ovulation and cloudy white again post ovulation.

Change in cervical feel and position:

The cervix usually lowers down during menstruation and is on a slightly higher side during ovulation. Also the cervix appears softer, open and wet. The wetness can sometimes be evidently felt.


Tenderness of breasts:

Due to increase in the level of progesterone tenderness of breast could be observed as the one of the symptoms of ovulation.

Apart from these, the usual symptoms could be spotting, abdominal bloating, increased sex drive, increased sense of smell and taste

i found this link very interesting and useful. Do visit and explore more on Toshiba BBT thermometer.

Basal Body Thermometer is a high resolution and high accuracy thermometer, compared to any normal digital thermometer.  It has a minimum resolution of 0.01 deg centigrade which is essential for basal body temperature measurement.  Toshiba BBT thermometer can also store data up to 7 days, it can transfer the readings to the smart phone app through wireless interface.  It does a fast predictive measurement and auto charting of the temperature data over the days. It is also a novel concept with first of kind innovation from Toshiba Japan.   Below table summarize the differences between Toshiba BBT Thermometer and a normal digital thermometer.

  • Basal body temperature is the lowest temperature attained by the body during rest (usually during sleep). It is generally measured immediately after awakening and before any physical activity has been undertaken.
  • In women, ovulation causes an increase of 0.2 to 0.4 degree Celsius in basal body temperature (BBT); monitoring of BBTs is one way of predicting the day of ovulation.
  • The tendency of a woman to have lower temperatures before ovulation, and higher temperatures afterwards, is known as a biphasic pattern.
  • For those who want to get / avoid pregnant, BBT enables to forecast the next ovulation date and menstrual date.
  • BBT tells periodical change in female hormone balance which is closely related to her physical condition (e.g. skin condition, metabolism) and mood.
  • Thus BBT implies valuable information to fertility, healthcare and beauty.
