welcome to can be known by these signs and symptoms-
1)change in cervical mucus-As ovulation approaches, your cervical mucus changes in amount and consistency. As ovulation approaches, cervical mucus become more abundant, takes on a watery to raw-egg-white-like consistency, and stretches .
2)increased libido.
3)Your body basal temperature will rise by a few tenths of a degree, and stay elevated, after ovulation. This rise in temperature is caused by the hormone progesterone, which increases immediate after ovulation. By charting your body basal temperature, you can detect this increase in temperature.
4)breast tenderness-Some women experience tenderness in their breasts just before or after ovulation. This is related to the hormones rushing in your body, getting ready for the potential of pregnancy.
the best and reliable test would be a ultrasound scan to see if follicle has ruptured and presence of fluid in pelvis.
