While in some animals there are outward signs when they are ovulating, humans have what it sometimes called concealed ovulation. What this means is that the signs are all inward, and can only be detected by the woman herself. There are certain things you can watch for to determine whether you are ovulating. Cervical mucus, change in your basal temperature or cervical position, or a positive result on an ovulation test can all help you learn when you are at your most fertile times.
You even can look at your saliva under a microscope for signs of a ferning pattern, which can be another of the symptoms of ovulation. This pattern is similar to the thin branching of frost on a window. This method is very unreliable, however, as it only occurs in certain women, and even those women sometimes have difficulty deciphering whether the pattern is occurring.
Ovulation discharge, sometimes called ovulation mucus or cervical mucus, varies in color and texture throughout your menstrual cycle. When this discharge becomes clear and thin, it is often one of the symptoms of ovulation. While this method has been said to give a high accuracy level of up to 98.5%, there is always a possibility that your cervical mucus will give you all the signs of it being a fertile period for you when in actuality it is not.
