For women with irregular menstrual cycles, it is hard to know when or if ovulation is occurring. This makes it tricky to try for a baby. Ovulation induction treatment may be recommended to help you get pregnant.
Each month, your body has a menstrual cycle where an egg is released from the ovaries. Ovulation is when the egg is released. Ovulation occurs (on average) 14 days before the start of your period. It’s normal for women to ovulate (release the egg from the ovaries) anywhere from 12-18 days before their period starts.
