How to know my ovulation cycle?
A standard menstrual cycle is 28 days. However, the normal menstrual cycle is 28 to 32 days. Few women may have a shorter cycle or extended cycles, so the correct timing of ovulation can vary from woman to woman.
An overview of what happens in a woman's body during a typical 28-day menstrual cycle:
- Day 1- Cycle begins on the first day of blood flow.
- Days 2 to 14 - The follicles on ovary become active, and cervical mucus starts to thin.
- Day 14 - Ovulation occurs mid-cycle but can vary anywhere between Day 11 and Day 21 of a woman's cycle. The increasing Oestrogen levels trigger the LH surge, which causes the follicle to ovulate and release an egg.
- Days 15 to 22 - Luteal Phase - After releasing the egg, the follicle produces progesterone, which thickens the lining of the uterus for implantation.
- Days 23 to 24 - Implantation of a fertilised egg can take place. In case of a pregnancy, hCG hormones produced due to pregnancy may be detected by a pregnancy test.
- Days 25 to 28 - If pregnancy does not occur, hormone levels begin to fall. The uterine lining sheds, resulting in your periods.
