When does ovulation occur?

One of the most important questions that many women who want to be pregnant like an answer to is, when is my ovulation? Knowing when your ovulation is can actually help women in their search to become pregnant as well as test if they are pregnant. You should only use a pregnancy test about 8 days after your ovulation to make sure there is enough hCG in your urine to have an accurate response. Also, your ovulation is the most fertile time in your menstruation cycle which is great to know for women who are trying to get pregnant and want to increase their chances.

So now you know all the useful reasons why you might want to know when your ovulation is. So when does it occur? In a normal, standard, 28-day cycle, ovulation usually occurs on the 14th day of your cycle. That being said, how many women do you know have a normal consistent cycle? Not many, and if you do, more power to you!

Ovulation pains can last for up to a few days depending on what is triggering the pain. The pain could have the sensation of an uncomfortable pressure to a sharp pain somewhat like menstrual cramps.

Ovulation starts when the egg is released from the ovary and travels down the fallopian tube. There are a few signs and symptoms you can look out for to see whether or not you are during your ovulation period or not. These symptoms can range from abdominal and breast pain and tenderness to your cervical mucus turning into a thicker, "stickier' consistency.

You can also test to see if you are ovulating by using an ovulation test or kit. These tests test the LH level (luteinizing hormone level) in your urine. There is usually a spike of LH in your urine directly before your ovulation period.
