Women who are in the ovulation period have a slightly higher basal body temperature than usual.
Having sex from 5 days before ovulation to the day of ovulation can increase your chances of conceiving.
Based on the average female cycle of 28 days, the ovulation period occurs approximately on the 14th day of the first day of menstruation. Women who are in the ovulation period have a slightly higher basal body temperature than usual, and observing the amount and texture of cervical mucus secretion can help predicting the ovulation period. You can also use ovulation test strips to find out the ovulation time.
During week 2-3 of pregnancy, when the sperm and egg are successfully fertilised, it will become known as a Blastocyst and move toward the uterus. Next, implantation of the fertilised egg forms an embryonic follicle that attaches to the endometrium. Successful implantation means you are officially pregnant!
During ovulation, your basal body temperature rises slightly more than usual at about 0.3 °C. You could track your temperature every morning, record the results and find out the patterns. In the 2 to 3 days before the rise in body temperature, your fertility is the highest.
Cervical mucus secretion changes before ovulation. You are likely ovulating (and most fertile) when the mucus is heavy, wet and slippery. It will have the consistency of raw egg whites, which promote the sperm motility to meet the egg.
