Natural Fertility Tracking 101


FUN FACT: Only 30% of women ovulate between days 13-15… 


Happy Wellness Wednesday! 


Todays topic - Natural fertility tracking 101!




Most of us know when we are menstruating right!? 


It’s pretty obvious…


But maybe if/when we are ovulating is a little tricker to pinpoint…


So here are some fertility facts to get you started:

  • Males are fertile 100% of the time.

  • A female produces usually only one egg per cycle which can be fertilised for no more than 12 hours after release.

  • For about 6 days before ovulation, the cervix opens and produces a fertile mucus which keeps sperm alive for 3-6 days, enabling them to survive inside the female until the egg is released.

  • Due to this mucus a female is fertile about 6 days before ovulation and only 2 days after, allowing for the release and life of the egg. The rest of the time a female is infertile because the cervix is sealed with a sticky mucus plug which blocks the passage of sperm.

  • Only about 30% of females ovulate between day 13-15 - hence why it’s important to track!
