Does the ovulation happen every month?
Is it or is it not?
Normally, an ovulation in your body is supposed to happen in every menstrual cycle. It will not necessarily be every calendar month. The length of your cycle is individual. Fluctuations of 21 to 35 days are considered allowable.
Therefore, in the longest cycle, an ovulation may not happen every calendar months, but it definitely happens every biological month of yours.
You can guess that an ovulation has occurred by the following signs:
- your mood became calmer;
- insignificant laziness is present;
- you want to slap more;
- your temperature is a bit higher; and
- your breasts are bigger.
If you are planning a pregnancy, you don’t want to play guess, as you need an exact answer. To receive it, buy an ovulation test in a drugstore and take it at home. It is taken similarly to the pregnancy test. If the result is positive, it means that in 1.5-2 days, the ovum will leave the ovary. This is a perfect time for you to act.
Back from the school time, we remember that there is an exception from every rule. Well, it turns out gynecology also has such exceptions. Even if the ovulation is absent once a year, it is deemed a version of a norm. The probability of such exception increases, if you:
- travel long distance with a change of climate (it’s cold here and you have gone to the tropical countries);
- do sports professionally; or
- frequently adhere to strict diet plans.
What are you to do if no ovulation occurs?
If you noticed that you have no ovulation in one cycle, remember of the exception. Continue keeping an eye on it throughout the year. If it doesn’t happen anymore, its’ a norm and there is nothing to worry about.
However, if the ovulation fails to occur more than once a year, hurry to the gynecologist. It may be a symptom of various diseases that can be effectively cured at the early stages.
To consult a gynecologist in good time is to get off lightly. Usually, after a medical examination, the doctor states functional deficiencies, meaning that there is no organic disease. Therefore, it is sufficient to take combined contraceptives to restore the menstrual cycle. Of course, these medications must be prescribed to you by the doctor as opposed to a female friend or a next-door neighbor. There are many myths circulating about combined contraceptives — you will allegedly gain weight, grow unwanted hair, etc. — but myths are all they are.
Your health is in your own hands!
