What is follicular tracking?
Tracking ovulation is the best way to identify the appropriate time to get pregnant. It involves monitoring your cycle by ultrasound.
Accurately predicting ovulation can be a little trickier than figuring out when day 14 is for you. Ovulation can be irregular, or it can be affected by diet, stress or illness.
Ovulation is triggered by a surge of Luteinising Hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland. LH also stimulates the ovary to begin producing the hormone Progesterone. This surge normally occurs 24-48 hours before ovulation and can be tracked more accurately with blood tests and ultrasounds.
Who may wish to do ovulation tracking?
- Women having regular cycles, who have been trying to fall pregnant for several months without success.
- Women having irregular cycles, to help determine the best time to conceive.
