Ovulation is an important phase of a woman's life. Symptoms of Ovulation include Increased sex drive, Cervical Mucus, raised cervical position, reduced basal body temperature, tender breasts, increased energy levels, and spotting. You will also have increased senses for smell and taste during ovulation.
Every month one of the ovaries in the female body releases eggs into the fallopian tube to meet the sperm and get fertilized. This process of release of the egg by the ovaries is called Ovulation. Some woman may feel shy to share their ovulation with there when they try to conceive. These signs of ovulation may help you in planning a healthy pregnancy as well. Here is a list of 10 most common signs of ovulation, which every woman should know. (1)
1- Ovulation Pain
Ovulation pain generally occurs around the lower abdomen. This ovulation symptom is not common and very few women experience ovulation pain. Some women may feel severe pain in their lower abdominal area. It is also known as Mittelschmerz or mid-cycle pain. A constant, mild sensation of pain is normal to sign of ovulation. (2) (3)
But a severe and long-lasting pain during ovulation may warrant immediate medical attention.
2- Drop in BBT
A drop in your basal body temperature is one of the common signs of ovulation. You may experience a drop in your basal body temperature on the day of ovulation and may feel an elevation in BBT the next day. You may experience an elevation in the basal body temperature from the day of ovulation till the day you get your next period. Using a basal body temperature thermometer can check the basal body temperature. (4)
3- Cervical Mucus
Cervical Mucus or vaginal discharge is a sticky discharge from the vaginal cavity. It is one of the most common symptoms of ovulation. The appearance of cervical mucus or vaginal discharge may vary depending upon your body and may change its appearance during the phase of ovulation, menstruation, and pregnancy. An egg-like white discharge is a sign of ovulation, which makes a most favorable time for sperm to flow into a uterus and meet the egg to get fertilized. (5)
4- Cervical Position
Cervical position is another common way to track the inception of ovulation. You may observe your cervix to be hard and stiff before ovulation or during infertile days. You may experience your cervix to be soft, high, open and wet during ovulation. You can easily track your ovulation simply by observing the position of the cervix. (6)
Same as cervical mucus, cervix changes itself and elevates the chances to conceive.
5- Tender Breasts
Tender of a soft breast is one of the most prominent signs of ovulation. Some women may feel tenderness in breasts near the time of ovulation. Though it is one of the most common signs of pregnancy, however, it can also be experienced during ovulation too. (7)
6- Increased Energy Level
7- Raised Sense Of Vision, Smell and Taste
With the hormonal change, women get a raised sense of vision, smell, and taste. Some women may feel nausea and vomiting on getting a whiff of smell from perfumes, flowers, clay, and cigarette or room freshener. Food aversions and cravings form another sign of ovulation. (9)
As ovulation is the process when a female body releases an egg, there are few women who have spotting during their ovulation. You may also experience spotting as implantation bleeding if trying to conceive and had unprotected sex during ovulation. However, heavy bleeding or spotting with severe cramps during ovulation should not be avoided and you should seek medical advice immediately in this case.
9- Feeling Wetter
You may experience your vagina to be wetter and may feel more lubricated as the consistency of your cervical mucus changes during ovulation.
As ovulation approaches, the cervical fluid not only becomes thinner and stretchier but also becomes more abundant.
10- Increased Sex Drive
Ovulation makes a perfect time for you to conceive. You are more likely to experience a libido or increased sex drive. Ovulation is a time when a woman is in her most fertile days and the eggs are ready to meet sperm for fertilization. This is the most common ovulation symptom. An increased sex drive is necessary for both the partners to bring a new life into existence.
You may feel bloated one or two weeks before your menstrual cycles or during ovulation. The reason behind this phenomenon is the changes in hormonal levels your body experiences during ovulation. However, the bloating may fade away as soon as you get your periods. In case you experience bloating with pain for a longer duration, consult your healthcare provider immediately. (10)
