After ovulation, a human egg will usually remain viable for around 7 to 10 days. It is during this time that women are able to get pregnant. A new egg is released once every 28 days or so. During ovulation, there will likely be some changes in the women’s body and this can lead to a number of symptoms.
How strong the symptoms are felt will vary from person to person, and some women will barely feel any symptoms at all. Knowing the signs of ovulation can be very helpful, though, particularly among women that are trying to get pregnant.
Here are some of the signs that you are at your most fertile.
Sign #1: Spotting
Spotting is another term given to light bleeding. It is not a common symptom of ovulation, but some women do experience it. It is a result of the follicle rupturing as the egg passes through and the amount of bleeding produced is usually very light. It is often noticed in the underwear, although it can also give a pink/red color to any vaginal discharge.
There are other reasons why a woman will experience spotting, one of which is ovarian cysts. As such, it is a good idea to get it checked out by a medical professional if you are not sure of the cause. Most conditions that cause it are easily dealt with, but it is still a good idea to check to be on the safe side.
