Ovulation and Egg Health to Improve Fertility

Ovulation and conception go hand in hand. To conceive naturally, you need to know when and if you are ovulating. For some women, ovulation may only occur intermittently between cycles, or it may only last one day in the entire reproductive cycle. So, if you are trying to fall pregnant naturally, the first step is to establish when and if you are ovulating.

Fertility preservation and staying fertile longer means it is important to maintain healthy ovulatory cycles. So, if you have been living a lifestyle that is perhaps stressful or have been having too much fun... then it may be time to make a few changes to support healthy ovulation ....and stay fertile longer in your 20's, 30's, 40's and beyond.

How do I know if I am ovulating?

At BUMP® Fertility we take ovulation seriously, and we educate you on how to establish if, and when your ovulation peaks.

Most women are aware of the presence of cervical mucus. Observing your cervical mucus can be more useful than you may think. If you want to aid or avoid conception, cervical mucus observations are said to be around 98.5% accurate as to the fertile and infertile times in your monthly cycle.

If you are not ovulating we call this premature ovarian failure ­ and it is not the same as premature menopause. While menopause is an irreversible condition, premature ovarian failure is characterized by intermittent and temporary ovarian failure with periodic episodes of normal follicular activity or ovarian function. This means you may not ovulate all the time, perhaps even just once a year, or you may not ovulate at all.

Most of the time premature ovarian failure appears to begin spontaneously and its origin is elusive or unknown.  Some of the identified causes include:

Ovulatory disorders are one of the leading causes of female infertility, and affect between 20% and 40% of women experiencing fertility problems. However, with natural support and treatment, a woman's ability to conceive improves dramatically. If you want to fall pregnant, the solution may be applying a collaborative approach to fertility, utilizing a broad and extensive array of health and medical services and specific dietary changes, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies and comprehensive medical testing. This is what we do at BUMP®.
