    Every month one of the ovaries in the female body releases eggs into the Fallopian tube to meet the sperm and get fertilized. This release of an egg by the ovaries is called ovulation. Now, this egg stays in the female body for 12-24 hours once it is released. So, right timing is the important thing to get pregnant. If the sperms do not meet the egg inside the female body, then pregnancy cannot occur.

    Tracking ovulation helps in determining the ovulation day and the fertile window when chances of having baby are high. This fastens your process of trying to conceive. Before, we read about common signs and symptoms of ovulation, read a little about the menstrual cycle, which helps in better understanding of ovulation. (1) (4)

Ovulation happens about two weeks before the next expected period. So if the average menstrual cycle is 28 days, you ovulate around day 14. But if you have irregular cycles, then tracking is a must to do activity for you. (2) (3)

Bloating may fade away as soon as you get your periods. In case you experience bloating for a longer duration, please consult your physician. The lining of the uterus has thickened to prepare for the fertilized egg. If no conception occurs, the uterine lining, as well as blood, will be shed.
