1. Variation In Body Temperature
On normal days, the basal body temperature of most women remains stable and consistent. But there is a slight decrease in the temperature when you are nearing ovulation and then once it is over, there is a considerable increase. Keeping a tab on your body temperature can help you understand when ovulation process is about to begin.
2. Change In The Firmness Of The Cervix
During the ovulation process, a woman's body undergoes hormonal changes and the body mechanism tries to adjust to these changes. Often during ovulation, the cervix becomes open and high. It also becomes soft and wet. These changes in the cervical position and firmness can help you determine the ovulation period.
3. Tenderness Of The Breasts
This is a very common symptom of ovulation. When you ovulate, the level of progesterone in your system rises. This hormone is responsible for making your breasts feel tender during the ovulation.
4. Higher Sex Drive
As the pregnancy is closely tied with ovulation, most women experience an increased sex drive around the period of ovulation. A study conducted on symptoms of ovulation show that women are more inclined to have physical intimacy and sex during their ovulation than on other days.
5. Cramps & One-Sided Pain
During the middle of the menstrual cycle, many women complain of a particular type of pain, medically known as Mittelschmerz. This one-sided pain is caused when the egg breaks through the follicle at the time of ovulation. Also, due to the contraction of the fallopian tube that channels the egg into the uterus, one can experience severe cramps in the lower abdomen.
6. Feeling Bloated
Some women freak out when their clothes feel tighter, especially in the abdominal area. But this is a temporary thing that is common when you are ovulating. The hormonal shifts in the system are the most probable causes for such a sudden change. Your body will get back to normal a few days after the ovulation.
7. Migraine Attacks
Menstrual migraines are quite common across the world. Such migraines occur during your periods as well as during ovulation. Again, the changes in the hormone levels in your body act as triggers that cause such headaches.
Just pay attention to your body and look for the above symptoms. You will know the timing of ovulation without any testing!
