If you wonder whether or not this discomfort in the head is a sign of your ovulation, it’s worth making a diary for at least 3-4 menstrual cycles. If do they are linked, this idea can help you find the answer clearly!

What are the common signs and symptoms of ovulation?

The primary symptoms include [5]:

  1. The basal temperature change. Many times, the basal temperature is rather consistent prior to the ovulation. As you get closer to the time of the release of egg from the ovary, the basal temperature may get a slight decline – but typically, it then will increase sharply after the egg is released.
  2. Cervical fluid change. This symptom can vary from woman to woman. In other words, the change in cervical fluid doesn’t look the same for all women. But in general, most women usually notice the most amount of wet fluid when they are ovulating.
  3. The cervical position change. It may be more difficult to be explained than other symptoms. For most women, it can take time for them to learn the change in their cervical position when they are ovulating.

And for the secondary symptoms, these include:

  1. Change in sense of vision, smell, or taste.
  2. Abdominal bloating. It also can strike few days before the start of your menses.
  3. Tenderness in breast.
  4. Increased libido.
  5. Pain or cramps, particularly on one side of your pelvis.
  6. You may also have light spotting.
