Ovulation Predictors and Calculators

May 6, 2007 - Tag: Trying for a baby - Comments (0)

If you are currently trying for a baby you may find an ovulation predictor or ovulation calculator to be a useful tool.

An ovulation calculator asks you for information such as the date of the first day of your last monthly period and the average length of your cycle. It can then calculate when your most fertile times are likely to be over the forthcoming months. They are usually free to use and can be found on various pregnancy websites, such as this one from babycentre.

Do be aware that the dates given provide an approximate guide to when you might be ovulating as every woman is different.

Ovulation predictor kits can be bought from around £20 and can provide you with a way to check that you are ovulating and when your most fertile times are. They work by measuring changing levels of hormones in your body. They are reliable but not totally foolproof.

Ovulation predictor kits can be bought in many of the high street pharmacies, as well as over the Internet, such as this one from Clear Blue.
