Regular periods are a sign of ovulating, as is getting pregnant! Some women have mid cycle cramping (mittelschmerz) and may notice more cervical mucus or a change in mucus consistency – ‘egg white’ like and stretchy. If you have regular cycles, an ovulation predictor kit (OPK) is a better test than checking mucus or basal body temperatures. OPK should go positive between Days 10 to 18 in most women with regular cycles. Start testing every day from Day 10 in your cycle (Day 1 is the first day of your period). Test between 10 am and noon as the first morning urine is not as accurate. We recommend the Ovuquick brand (search online and get the 9-stick pack not the 6-pack). If you test for a couple of months and it’s not working see a fertility specialist (Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility or REI) if you’re trying to conceive.
