Many women know where they are in their cycle and when they ovulate by charting their basal temperature, taking an ovulation test or by observing certain physical symptoms they may have, such as ovulation pain. This can be useful for the purposes of contraception or deliberate conception, and is just interesting to know.

If you're a woman who ovulates, do you keep track of approximately when it happens?

I can tell from physical symptoms, provided I'm paying attention. When I was planning to have a second baby I checked using an ovulation test and it was when I thought it was.
Too funny :D
I have always known because of physical symptoms. Last year I had a hysterectomy but I still have my ovaries and can still tell when I ovulate.
Yes, I chart my basal temperature on a daily basis and take note of certain physical symptoms. Artificial contraception is not for me, so this is the approach to family planning that my husband and I chose.

No, I have no clue!
I knew when I was having fertility problems by the temp graph.
Yes, I always get a bit of ovulation pain. I'm definitely more in tune with my body now I'm in my 30's. It was never something I noticed before.
I don't have any of these worries anymore but,
when I was younger and fertile I always knew when I was ovulating by the associated pain. Ovulation pain was always more severe to me than menstruation pain. As I got older, and closer to the beginning of menopause the pain of ovulation increased tremendously but only for about 3-4 times before everything just ceased. Alleluia !
Don't have this problem any more!
