common knowledge – identifying when you ovulate is one of the
keys to becoming pregnant. To this end, we’re pleased to provide
you with the free ovulation calendar below; it’s a simple online
tool you can use to plug in your cycle dates and receive a general
estimate of when ovulation might occur.
as you probably already know, there’s more to accurately predicting
ovulation than simply plugging numbers into an online tool. Reliable ovulation
prediction requires an analysis of your own body’s hormones –
not just cycle dates. So what is the best way to determine your "peak
Ways to Determine When You Ovulate – Your “Peak” Fertile
Ovulation Calculator: Use the ovulation calculator below
to get a basic idea of when ovulation might occur based on your cycle
Tests: Identify your “LH” surge using
tests. (The “LH surge” is the dramatic rise in luteinizing
hormone that occurs just prior to ovulation. Your LH surge represents
the optimal time for having babymaking intercourse.)
tests are easy to use, they’re affordable (just $0.60/test with
free same-day shipping), and they’re 99.9% accurate in measuring
the level of LH (luteinizing hormone) present in your urine.
Ovulation Monitors: Use a saliva-based ovulation
monitor, like Fertile
Focus, to identify your estrogen surge. Similar to the LH surge,
there is an increase in estrogen levels prior to ovulation. Using a
simple saliva ovulation monitor (it looks just like a little tube of
lipstick), you can view distinct patterns that appear in saliva that
reflect this hormonal shift just prior to ovulation.
best part about the saliva ovulation monitor? It provides an "advance
notice" of ovulation, it’s completely re-usable – there’s
nothing else to buy, and it at just $25 with free shipping, it’s
a solid value.
Monitors: Buy a full-fledged fertility monitor,
like the Clearblue
Fertility Monitor or the OvaCue. These are feature rich electronic
instruments that measure urine and saliva, respectively, to provide
you with a crystal clear, unambiguous indicator of your fertile status.
They’re not cheap, but they do provide the wonderful peace of
mind that comes with applying cutting edge technology to your trying
to conceive efforts.
Thermometers: Chart your basal body temperature.
Using a basal
body temperature thermometer, you can not only confirm that you
have ovulated during your monthly cycle, but also anticipate when your
peak fertile period will likely be in subsequent months.
body temperature charting is a great way to become attuned to your body’s
unique rhythm, and can be used in conjunction with any of the aforementioned
techniques. A digital basal body temperature thermometer costs less
How to Use the Ovulation Calendar
To use the calendar,
simply enter the first day of your last period (the first day of menstrual
bleeding), your average cycle length, and the length of your luteal
phase. The Luteal Phase is the period of time starting day after ovulation
and running through the remainder of your menstrual cycle. If you do
not know your luteal phase, leave blank (the ovulation calendar will default to 14 days).
The ovulation calendar program provides approximate dates for predicting ovulation, and assists
in determining when to begin ovulation testing. Please visit our instructions

of bbt charting - in concert with a trusty array of ovulation testing
products - we can accurately predict ovulation several days before

you can identify your window of peak fertility (12-36 hours prior
to ovulation and the day ovulation takes place). Following intercourse,
try staying in bed for at least an hour.
