    Signs of ovulation - how do I know if I am ovulating?

    Hur man tar reda på när man har ägglossning kan vara lite klurigt att ha koll på. I denna artikel går vi därför igenom allt du behöver veta för att ta reda på när du har ägglossning!

    Vad är ägglossning?

    It is only during ovulation, which usually occurs around 12-16 days before your period, that you can get pregnant. But what actually happens in the body and how does it work? 

    Ovulation plays a key role in your journey to the plus side of the stick. During ovulation, one (or in some cases several!) eggs are released from your ovary and enter the fallopian tube. Once there, the egg can be fertilized by sperm for the next 24 hours. So it is during these 24 hours that you are most fertile. However, it should not be forgotten that sperm can survive for up to 5 days, and that it can therefore be good to, in addition to when you ovulate, also try to schedule intercourse a few days before and after ovulation.

    Vanliga symptom på ägglossning

    1. Förhöjd kroppstemperatur: Många upplever en liten ökning av sin kroppstemperatur strax efter ägglossningen. Detta beror på hormonella förändringar och kan mätas med till exempel en basaltermometer eller ägglossningstermometer.
    2. Flytningarnas konsistens förändras: Under ägglossningen blir flytningarna vanligtvis klarare i färgen, mer töjbara och liknar ofta rå äggvita i konsistensen. Förändringen i konsistensen hjälper spermierna lite extra på traven på deras resa genom livmodershalsen mot deras slutdestination: ägget!
    3. Ökad sexuell lust: En del märker av en ökad sexuell lust under ägglossningsperioden, vilket är en naturlig reaktion på kroppens fertilitetscykel. Under ägglossning så ökar nämligen bland annat nivåerna av östrogen, alltså det hormon som stimulerar sexlusten.
    4. Ömhet eller smärta i nedre buken: Vissa kvinnor kan uppleva mild till måttlig smärta eller ömhet på ena sidan av magen, beroende på vilken äggstock som släpper ut ägget. Detta kan ibland kallas för mittelschmerz.
    5. Positivt ägglossningstest: Ägglossningstest, som mäter nivån av hormonet LH (luteiniserande hormon) i urinen, kan hjälpa till att ta reda på när du har ägglossning. En ökning av LH-nivåerna är vanligtvis en signal från kroppen att ägglossningen är nära.

    Hur vet jag att jag har ägglossning?

    För att ta reda på när du har ägglossning och optimera chanserna att bli gravid kan du använda ägglossningskalendrar or ägglossningskalkylatorer

    Hur fungerar en ägglossningskalkylator kanske du funderar över? Det ska vi självklart hjälpa till att reda ut. Ägglossningskalkylatorns beräkning baseras på information om din menscykel, både startdatumet för din senaste mens och längden på din menscykel. 

    En menscykel varar vanligtvis mellan 28 och 32 dagar, med ägglossningen som inträffar vanligtvis ungefär mitt i cykeln, runt dag 14 (räknat från första dagen av den senaste menstruationsperioden). Detta kan dock variera från person till person.

    What is an irregular menstrual cycle?

    Ibland är menscykeln oregelbunden, vilket betyder att den exempelvis kan vara 25 dagar en månad och 35 månaden efter. För dig som försöker att bli gravid kan det då vara svårt att veta exakt när ägglossningen sker och när det är som mest optimalt att ha samlag. Det du kan göra isåfall, för att vara extra säker, är att ta ett ägglossningstest. Dessa hittar du på apoteket.
