Where do I start?

In our clinic, the number one question we get from patients is “How do I know
when I’m ovulating?” Ways of monitoring ovulation are too numerous to list, but a
search of ovulation predictors online will give you some idea.
I often ask patients to combine basal body temperature (BBT) charting with a reliable
ovulation predictor test for no more than two or three months to determine if
ovulation is occurring. Charting your temperatures is free, and aside from being a
minor hassle, you can gleam important information that can be useful for you and
your fertility specialists.
Knowing your own body and being able to tell when you are fertile or ovulating has
its benefits. There are only certain times during your menstrual cycle when you are
fertile or can get pregnant, so it pays to know when those times are.
Your body will give you clear clues and signals as to when your fertile window is
approaching. A woman is fertile when she is ovulating and for about four to five
days before ovulation when fertile cervical mucus is present.
