Ovulation Cycle Tracking with Footsteps To Fertility Centre

Ovulation cycle tracking is a simple process that can help you identify which days you are most fertile. This will help you plan when to have sex to give you the best chance of conception. Ovulation is when a mature egg is released from the ovary. The egg then moves down the fallopian tube where it can be fertilised.

For one in six couples, getting pregnant can take longer than expected. If you are looking for help to conceive naturally, a good first step is ovulation cycle tracking.

It does not require any invasive fertility treatments or medicines and is more accurate than home ovulation predictor kits.

At Footsteps To Fertility Centre we are honored to have helped thousands of couples and single mothers receive the gift of parenthood and being given the opportunity to guide them through their difficult period of infertility.

Feel free to contact us or chat with us. We welcome you to our fertility center and hope to help you in becoming a parent.

Get the Timing Right

How does ovulation tracking work?

Whether you have regular or irregular periods, if you have been trying to fall pregnant for a few months without success,we can confidently help you understand when your fertile window is.

We do this by tracking your ovulation cycle to predict when ovulation is going to take place.

Ovulation is triggered by a surge of hormones from the pituitary gland (Luteinising Hormone). This normally takes place 24 hours before ovulation.

At Footsteps to Fertility Centre  we carry out a simple ultrasound scan and urine tests which detect this hormone surge, allowing us to advise you of the ideal time to have sex to achieve conception.

How can I track my ovulation?

Knowing when you ovulate can help you plan for sex at the right time and improve your chance of getting pregnant.

Menstrual periods are different from woman to woman and month to month. You can keep track of your menstrual cycles on your diary or use an ovulation calculator.

An ovulation calculator enables you to see when you may be ovulating to help find your most fertile days.

When you know your average menstrual cycle length, you can work out when you ovulate. Ovulation happens about 14 days before your period starts. To work out the length of your menstrual cycle, record the first day you start bleeding (first day of your period). This is day 1. The last day of your cycle is the day before your next period begins.

Signs of ovulation

Others ways to help you work out when you are ovulating include:

  • Rise in basal body temperature, typically 1/2 to 1 degree, measured by a thermometer
  • Cervical mucus, or vaginal discharge, may appear clearer, thinner, and stretchy, like raw egg whites

  • Breast tenderness

  • Bloating

  • Light spotting

  • Slight pain or cramping in your side

Determine your most fertile days

By undertaking a combination of urine tests and ultrasounds you will receive a more accurate and comprehensive overview of your cycle and general fertility.

If required, our fertility specialists can do blood tests to measure the quantity of estrogen, progesterone and luteinising hormone (LH) present throughout your cycle, enabling them to anticipate ovulation earlier and use the ultrasounds to confirm that there are actually follicles developing.

Our fertility specialist will help you understand your results, provide you with professional expert advice and identify any underlying problems.

If after ovulation cycle tracking, and timing sex at the right time of the month, you have not become pregnant and have been trying to conceive for twelve months or more without success or six months if you are over 36 years old, we recommend a fertility assessment for further investigations to check if there are underlying fertility issues with either partner and determine the best treatment plan which may include ovulation induction to stimulate, regulate, and correct ovulatory problems.
