  • Ovulation signs aren't difficult to track, once you know what to look for. Some signs of ovulation can be noted before ovulation takes place (helping you time sex for pregnancy), while others come after the fact. For example, body basal temperature charting will only indicate you have ovulated -- after it has happened.

    You can learn 7 different signs of ovulation here. I give you a run down of their pros and cons, so you can decide if it's worth looking into. (But I don't suggest using them all! You'll drive yourself nuts.)

    But... what if tracking ovulation signs is just too stressful? In that case, it's probably best to throw away your detective hat, and instead aim to have sex two to three times a week.
