What exactly is ovulation?

It is the process whereby the ovum matures in the ovary and it is released later. From the ovary, it is directed to the tube to be fertilized. It is performed cyclically and is always preceded by a hormonal stimulus.


Which are the common symptoms to recognize ovulation?

Ovulation typically occurs at mid-cycle, about 14 days from the start of the period start, in a period of about 28 days. But first there are two consecutive hormonal peaks. The first one is an estrogen rise recognized because of the change of the thickness and the vaginal discharge amount. Immediately after, there is a peak of LH (luteinizing hormone) with which starts the secretion of progesterone to prepare the womb for a possible pregnancy. This can be detected by a temperature increase of 0.5 ° C when you get up in the morning. To this can be added a feeling of discomfort and/or pain.

Why some women do not perceive anything?

Not everyone has the same sensitivity to pain, and vaginal discharge as well as the temperature may be altered by other physical or pathological causes. This would explain why some women notice ovulation well and others could not recognize it. Although if you do not notice it, it does not mean it does not take place. Often we do not identify it because we do not know what we should perceive.

Are there medical tests to detect it?

Yes. First a medical history is done to know what type of cycle has the woman and then a gynecological examination. During the examination, the doctor pays attention to the vaginal mucus. Using ultrasound, some signs can be observed that suggest the physician that ovulation has occurred. Finally, you can make a hormonal analysis between the 21-22 day of the cycle to quantify the level of progesterone and whether ovulation has occurred or not. Although nowadays what is done the most is a hormonal analysis between the second and third day of the cycle (pituitary hormones are analyzed) that provides much more information on the proper functioning of the menstrual cycle, as well as the ovarian reserve.

Which is the relation between ovulation and fertility?

When you are looking for a pregnancy it is advisable to approach sexual relations to the days before and after ovulation. Taking the basal temperature is also useful to know when you ovulate. But if your cycles are very regular , from 28 to 30 days, it is enough to focus on relations to the 14-15 days following the beginning of the period.


  • During the period of ovulation, women experience an increase in estrogen levels, allowing the ovum to release from the ovary. This occurs about 14 days before the first day of menstruation. That high rate of estrogen is present in saliva, blood and urine of women. Minerals in saliva crystallize further while the level of estrogen increases, observed in form of ferns in the device Fertilcontrol Easy.
  • After ovulation, progesterone increases, inhibiting the formation of ferns, therefore only bubbles or points are observed. The perception of the presence or absence of ferns by using Easy FERTILCONTROL helps women in a very simple and effective way in order to obtain the desired pregnancy in a natural way.
