Ovulation is when a mature ovarian follicle (part of the ovary) releases an egg (also known as an ovum, oocyte, or female gamete) and travels down the fallopian tube where it is made available to be fertilised by a sperm.
When trying to get pregnant, knowing when you ovulate can enable you to focus your conception attempts around this time to help maximise your chances of getting pregnant.
The Ovulation Calculator helps you predict your most fertile days of the month. As you already know, the menstrual periods vary from woman to woman and month to month. Use the Ovulation Calculator to increase your chances of getting pregnant by helping you determine the timing of your ovulation and peak fertility.
The Ovulation Calculator will show you your most fertile dates based on your last period date and your period length. Find out when your next period is expected to start, when you are likely to ovulate and increase your chances of getting pregnant.
Many women do not have 28 day cycles. The ovulation window is unique to each woman, therefore if two women share the same cycle length they may ovulate at different times. This is important to know, so you can also plan conception attempts at the right time for your cycle. Other facts include:
Use our fertility calculator to calculate your most fertile days of the month. Fill in your Last Menstrual Period (LMP) date – the first day of your menstrual period is considered to be day 1 in your cycle -, your cycle length and your email to receive most of the important dates of your pregnancy.
Our aim is to empower women to become more aware of their own cycle and to better understand their bodies and when they are likely to be ovulating.
There are a number of ways to assess and predict when you may be ovulating. Our calendar is a great first step at gauging this important biological process. Women’s cycles are complicated! Let us help you to try and make sense of it all.
At Foresight we also highly recommend the Natural Family Planning (NFP) method of charting your cycle, which offers an invaluable insight and includes monitoring your body temperature and cervical mucus to become more in tune with your own body. NFP offers invaluable insight for individuals and couples experiencing fertility issues, breastfeeding mothers and for couples seeking non-invasive contraception.
