Fertility Facts – Ovulation Prediction
The first day of the menstrual bleeding is the first day of our menstrual cycle and it ends with the first day of the following cycle/bleeding. Commonly, the ovulation occurs approximately in the middle of the female menstrual cycle, between 13 and 15 days. However, many factors can influence ovulation to happen anytime. Every body is unique and you cannot rely on those average and “commonly” forecasts. Therefore, many women nowadays use ovulation prediction kits to help them find out when their ovulation occur.
If you try to track your ovulation based on your fertility monitoring / ovulation predictor kit, you should read manuals and tips carefully for better results. The detection of LH (luteinizing hormone) is important here, because LH surge commonly occurs 36 hours before the ovulation. If you engage in an intercourse after the surge, but not much after it, the surge will have the possibility to unite an egg and sperm for conception. Of course, the ovulation kit cannot guarantee that you will get pregnant, but it surely increases your chances. However, for better results, you should know everything about your monitoring/prediction kit. Keep in mind that it takes up to several months for completely healthy couple to conceive a baby. However, even if the sexual intercourse happens during ovulation, there are many other factors that can influence the possibility of conception. Of course, if your attempts last too long, it is better to check at your doctor. If you use fertility monitoring kit, you will be able to provide an exact calendar of your fertility cycle which can help your doctor determine the possible problems and disorders.
