what is ovulation calendar
The program calculating a low and high likelihood of conception enables to
define the most favorable days for fertilization. The program refers to a
fertility awareness-based (calendar-based) method of contraception. That is,
days 12-16 after the menses are considered to be pregnancy-favorable days for a
regular 28 day cycle.
In order to make your personal fertility calendar, just enter your menstrual
cycle duration (it usually equals 28 days) and the first day of the last
Please pay attention that Day 1 of the menstrual cycle starts from the first day
The duration of menstrual cycle (in days) is 22-33 days (do not mix it up with
First day of the last menstruation (date)
Basal body temperature (BBT) monitoring is another method for determining the
most favorable time for conception
The beginning of a menstrual cycle is completely unpredictable for many women as
it depends on many factors, including health condition, drugs administration,
nervous breakdowns and affection. In such a case, a fertility period can be
determined by taking basal body temperature (rectal temperature). The
temperature is taken daily upon waking up in the morning in a lying position.
BBT rises between 0.2 and 0.4 °С (0.3 and 0.7 °F) in the mid-cycle which
bespeaks the ovulation occurrence.
The BBT should be taken with one and the same thermometer.
Always record all concurrent factors (disease, stress, transition, etc.). It
will enable you to understand body basal temperature shifts when interpreting
the temperature graph. Record temperature readings right after taking it so as
not to forget to do it later. Keep it in mind that a correct graph
interpretation requires at least 3 months of observation.
A correct interpretation of a BBT curve, which is very important, is rather
Cervical mucus observation is another method
The method includes the cervical mucus observation that will fill soft to the
touch, transparent and ropy like raw albumen. If to rub the mucus between a
thumb and index finger and then to move fingers apart, the mucus will tear not
● Sympto-Thermal Method (STM)
The best way of applying natural calculation methods to determine days favorable
for conception is the combination of such methods, better known as a sympto-thermal
method. Such technique includes taking basal body temperature, daily mucus
observation and keeping accurate menstrual cycle calendar. By observing own
body, you will note other symptoms, even insignificant ones. Some women get so
experienced that can exactly identify the ovulation day due to feeling pains in
the lower belly.
Ovulation Predictor Kits
Ovulation predictor kits work as pregnancy tests. It also gives two cross-lines
upon contact with the urine. One check-out line indicates that a kit is
operational, the other line indicates a rise of the concentration of lutenizing
hormone (LH). The acute release of the hormone leads to the release of the ovum
that occurs 24-36 hrs after the hormone peak concentration. As ovulation is
estimated within several days, a kit includes 5 tests. If the second line
remains lighter than the check-out line within several menstrual cycles, a woman
should consult a gynecologist-endocrinologist, because ovulation may have failed
to occur. Appearance of two lines of the same intense color is taken as evidence
of the LH peak concentration. This means a right time for conception that will
last 2-3 days. .
A woman’s body is much more
sophisticated than any fertility or ovulation calendar used to estimate
ovulation time. Fertility, pregnancy and ovulation calendar are not viewed by
scientists as reliable methods for detecting fertile days. Please use only
scientifically proven, effective means of tracking fertility and ovulation
periods for the sake of preserving your health and saving your time.
