It creates a feeling as if you are touching your nose with your hand. In other words, we can say that the dryness of the cervix is a sign of ovulation.
As ovulation approaches, the egg that is about to be released from the ovary moves into a position suitable for the arrival of sperm so that it can be fertilized. The throat-like passage between the vagina and the uterus begins to open. The cervix becomes slippery and soft. The structure of the nose consistency, similar to the hardness, becomes soft like a lip. It also starts to rise, it is now in a place where you have difficulty reaching with your hand.

This pain is thought to occur due to the maturation of the egg or its release from the ovary. If you are experiencing a pain that you feel in the form of pain or cramping in the lower part of your abdomen, you can consider this as a symptom for ovulation tracking.
3. Discharge during ovulation
Monitoring cervical mucus secretion as a sign of ovulation is a useful indicator to predict the day of ovulation. Changes in the consistency, appearance and amount of the discharge you notice in your underwear will inform you. So, how is the discharge during the ovulation period?

Also, this time it will be in an extensible consistency without breaking. This is the discharge that indicates that ovulation is approaching, that is, it is a sign of ovulation. After ovulation, the secretion decreases again and takes on a darker color.

After ovulation, the level of progesterone increases, which prepares the uterus for pregnancy. This can cause pain in the breast during ovulation. It is a pain similar to the tenderness you feel in your breasts before your period. However, this is of course not seen in every woman.

To track this, you can measure your body temperature as soon as you wake up in the morning, before you get out of bed or even get up in bed, and you can determine the result. The day you ovulate, your body temperature is at its lowest, and the day after ovulation, it shows high around half a degree.
