The moment when the egg is mature, shoots and leaves the follicle, and moves towards the fallopian tubes is a period of ovulation. Usually, the woman has a 28-day menstrual cycle, but can vary between different women, in some cases the cycle may be up to 35 days.
On the 14th day before receiving the menstruation is the day of ovulation, the so-called most fertile day. Consequently, fertile days are considered 12 to 16 days of the cycle, that is, 2 days before and then from the day of ovulation (because the sperm can survive in the vagina up to 48 hours).
The period of ovulation is associated with certain symptoms that many female women without a calendar know that they are in the phase of ovulation.
Some of these symptoms are the following:
- Darker vagina color,
- Raised basal temperature,
- Chest pain
- Feeling of body fatigue
