New Delhi, Feb 22 Ovulation is a subject of reproductive health that is often surrounded by myths, unverified information and fiction. While there are factors beyond ovulation that can help in getting pregnant, ovulation plays an important role in successful conception. Not knowing about your fertile window, tracking and predicting ovulation days can be challenging for desirous couples to get pregnant.
Kshitiz Murdia, CEO and Co-Founder of Indira IVF explains it all:
Q: What is ovulation?
A: Ovulation is a part of the reproductive cycle when the egg is released from ovary of the dominant follicle into the fallopian tube. When the egg is fertilized by a sperm, an embryo is formed in the fallopian tube which later travels to the uterus developing further into fetus. In the case where the egg isn't fertilized by a sperm, it disintegrates and sheds along with the uterine linking during menstruation.
Q: How to track or predict ovulation day?
A: Typically, ovulation happens about 13-15 days before the start of each period. But like period, the timing of ovulation can vary in each person from cycle-to-cycle. If an average menstrual cycle is 28 days, the ideal day for ovulating would be around day 14, and most fertile days would be two-three days prior to that.
Q: Symptoms of ovulation
A: Symptoms of ovulation can differ from person to person. Females can experience - mild ovulation pain, spotting, increased libido, tender breasts, bloating and change in consistency and amount of vaginal discharge
