If you have interrupted the use of the contraceptive pill, performed the basic clinical exams with your partner and feel that the time has come to increase the family, it is worth learning to identify the signals that the body gives to realize if it is in its fertile period and increase your chances of getting pregnant.
Symptoms of female fertility
If the woman pays attention and listens to her own body she may recognize some of the main symptoms of her being in the fertile time. Vaginal discharge, accompanied by increased libido, is also magnified considerably. In this period, the discharge has the appearance of an egg white, is sticky, has no smell or color, and can last for about four days.
The woman's body temperature also changes as she is fertile, rising about 33° F. For control, it is important that she perform frequent tests with a thermometer. It is normal to still feel light, stitch-like pains on one side of the belly during the period, which occurs because of the release of the egg.
How do I know if I'm in the right fertile time?
The woman's fertile period lasts, on average, four days, starting about two days before ovulation and ending two days later. The day of ovulation varies and is easier to calculate when the menstrual cycle is regular.
To know the day of ovulation it is necessary to find out how many days the menstrual cycle lasts, making the count from the first day of the menstruation until the last day before the next one. Then divide this period in half and calculate three to four days for less and more.
If, for example, a woman has a cycle of 28 days, half will be on the 14th day. With a margin of safety of 4 days, we can say that it is fertile between the 10th and the 18th after the first day of the previous menstruation.
