Ovulation is when an egg is released from one of the ovaries during a menstrual cycle. The egg travels down the fallopian tubes and the womb prepares for implantation of a developing embryo fertilised egg. You can only get pregnant if the egg is fertilised by sperm. Occasionally, more than 1 egg is released during ovulation.

The cervical mucus method, also called the Billings Ovulation Method, is a type of natural family planning also known as fertility awareness-based methods. The cervical mucus method is based on careful observation of mucus patterns during the course of your menstrual cycle. Before ovulation, cervical secretions change — creating an environment that helps sperm travel through the cervix, uterus and fallopian tubes to the egg. By recognizing the changing characteristics of your cervical mucus, you can predict when you'll ovulate, which can help you determine when you're most likely to conceive. If you're hoping to get pregnant, you can use the cervical mucus method to determine the best days to have sex.
