 An ovulation calendar or ovulation calculator is most useful for women whose menstrual cycles are regular. The ovulation calculator works by simply entering the first day of your last menstrual period and the length of that cycle. Once this information is entered the ovulation calculator will show your approximate day of ovulation and the days when you are likely to get  pregnant.

Creating an ovulation calendar by keeping track of your monthly cycle on a calendar will help you determine the length of your menstrual cycle, which will then allow you to figure out the approximate time that ovulation occurs.  

How to predict ovulation:

1. Counting days: Tracking the average length of your menstrual cycle is one of the easy ways to predict ovulation. The first day of your cycle begins on first day of bleeding. Count from that day until your next period. If you see a regular pattern, you can determine ovulation from the 11th to 14th day of your next period. If your menstrual cycle is regular, it will be easier to determine when ovulation will begin.

2. Change in cervical mucous: As your cycle progresses, your cervical mucus increases in volume and texture. You are considered most fertile when the mucus becomes clear, thick, and slippery. Many women compare mucus at this stage to raw egg whites.

3. Abdominal discomfort: Some women experience pain in the lower abdominal area. This abdominal pain can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours and is a sign that ovulation is occurring.

4. Basal body temperature: Another simple method to determine ovulation is to monitor the body temperature. When most women ovulate, their basal body temperature increases 0.4-0.8 degrees Fahrenheit. To determine your basal body temperature you will need a basal body temperature thermometer.

6. You may start to experience swollen or tender breast during ovulation

7. Ovulation Prediction Kit is a popular option in predicting ovulation.

Each woman’s body is different, charting your fertility is a great way to get to know your cycle.
