They are highly individual but learning how to recognize them is not that difficult. Not every woman has symptoms of ovulation, but many do. For around 20 percent of all women, ovulation pain helps them to know when they are able to conceive a baby. When we say "pain", we mean actual sensations of hurting as well as abdominal discomfort or pressure. Because your average woman releases one egg from one ovary each month, ovulation pain can typically be felt on one side, originating from the ovary where the egg is being released that particular month. Ovulation pain, perhaps better described as discomfort for most women, is one of the best indicators of fertility in women.
The other reliable tell-tale sign of ovulation is fertile cervical mucus. Any woman who has ever fried an egg can learn to recognize this. Vaginal discharge, also known as cervical mucus, is a relatively reliable sign of ovulation. During ovulation, cervical mucus tends to be much like an egg white both in color and structure. if you cervical mucus is runny, fluid and transparent, it is a reliable sign that it is time to get busy! Other women notice distinct ovulation symptoms, just as they know they are about to start their periods. These symptoms can include tender breasts, bloating, and mood swings. Recognizing your personal signs of ovulation can be helpful, but ovulation predictor kits are also handy for those women who do not have any ovulation signs and symptoms, or don't want to pay attention to them.
