Question by  Howie (27)

How do you know if you are ovulating?


Answer by  Acoustica (69)

Ovulation generally occurs about halfway through your menstrual cycle (mid-way between your periods). Sometimes ovulating women (about twenty percent) will feel a slight pain similar to cramps, usually localized to one side of your lower abdominal area (the side you're ovulating on), that will key you into ovulation. If all else fails, you can buy the tests.

Your best bet is to purchase an ovulation monitor from a local store. They are normally placed alongside the pregnancy tests and they can tell with some degree of accuracy if you are ovulation and help find out the best time to try and concieve a child. If those don't work, talk to your doctor.

You may get a crampy pre-menstural type feeling.Test your cervix mucous.Really thin, then you probably aren't ovulating, if it is thick and sticky you are. There are also ovulation kits at the drugstore you can buy that show you how to track your cycle.

You can fiqure 14 days from your last period and those next couple of days should be right on track. I will ussally get some mild pms symptoms too. Nothing like right before I start. You need to keep track of your dates for a few months to make sure you are regular.
