Ovulation is that make-or-break part of your cycle…whether or not you are trying for a baby. If you are, well, it’s pretty much all hands on deck to make sure your partner’s swimmers catch your egg. And if you’re not, well, it’s the exact opposite! I find that women on either end of the spectrum track this time of the month fiercely. It is like writing an examination. Ovulation is essentially the period you write the exam, and the “pass” or “fail” outcome when your cycle is over, really depends on what you are hoping for.
