I have mittleschmerz, and my vaginal mucus changes enough that I’m able to tell where I am in my cycle.  As I got older and learned more about my body, I connected the two and learned how to tell when I’m ovulating.  Of course, since I have PCOS, that doesn’t actually mean I’m ovulating/fertile/releasing an egg.  In my case, it could just be a hormone change without the egg release.

I sure as heck didn’t.  I have a 21 day cycle, and tried charting, as well as watching my cervical mucus.  I was planning to try to get pregnant as soon as I finished college.  My husband and I did the deed during a time when I thought for sure I wasn’t in my fertile window.  At graduation, I was 14 weeks pregnant.

I generally have a good idea. I track my periods on an app, and at some point during my fertile period I’ll get ovulation cramps.

When we start TTC this year, I won’t use OPK’s or anything unless we go six cycles without a BFP. I almost always know when I’m ovulating.

coffeeandtv:  I have always known. I get the cramping on my side, can feel my temperature rise, feel incredibly fatigued and I get a bit nauesous. Since TTC I have also taken note that my CM does change, too.

I have cramping and a twinge of pain when I ovulate. EWCM is also a good indicator.

Nope, never had a clue. My cycles were irregular so my charts were pretty much useless, too. So I just bought OPKs to figure out when I was ovulating. I got pregnant on my first cycle using OPKs!

When I ovulate, I have sore boobs and pain in one ovary (alternating sides each month). For me, it’s basically just lower level period pain.
