Signs of ovulation to detect your most fertile time

Ovulation symptoms aren't difficult to notice. Once you know what to look for, you'll be surprised how easy it can be. Just about every person trying to get pregnant wants to know when it's ovulation day. Ovulation is when an egg is released from the ovary. When the egg is ovulated, you want sperm waiting in the Fallopian tubes available to fertilize that egg.

In other words, ideally, sexual intercourse should occur before the moment of ovulation in order to increase your odds of conception. Women are most fertile in the days leading up to ovulation.1 If you can have sex during this time, your chances of getting pregnant that cycle will go up considerably.

On average, a woman with regular cycles tends to ovulate sometime between day 11 and day 21 of her cycle. (Day 1 is the day you get your period.) This means a woman’s most fertile days will fall somewhere between day 8 and day 21.2

If your cycles are on the shorter side, you’re more likely to ovulate closer to day 11. If you have longer menstrual cycles, ovulation may occur closer to day 21. But “some time” between day 11 and day 21 is quite a long range.

Determining your exact ovulation day can be tricky, but there are several ways to tell when you're at your most fertile point in your cycle. Here are eight signs that ovulation is coming or that ovulation has just occurred.
