Ovulation is when the egg is released from your ovary (the part that makes the eggs) and travels down your fallopian tube (connects your ovary to the largest part of your uterus). Your are most likely to get pregnant at this time. It usually takes place mid-cycle, 14 days before the day your next period arrives. I don't mean to judge but I wish reproductive education was more widely available and accepted. Girls and women need to know how thier bodies work and be able to take control of them. It's not your fault, for more info I would put the word "ovulation" in a search engine and learn how your reproductive organs work, if no one else is willing to teach you. All the best!

I'm on the pill so I've forgotten pretty much what it feels like. But from what I have read and know myself. If you can feel it, it can range from a dull ache to a sharp pain, either on your left or right side (depending which ovary the egg is coming from). Other women don't feel it at all. To some women, men look better during that time, higher s_x drive, it really varies. To know when it happens, like I said before, is to count backwards approximately 14 days from your NEXT period. Ex. if your period is due Feb 1 count 14 days backwards so you would have possibly ovulated on Jan 19. Another way is to look up on line ''www.mymonthlycycles.com" It'll tell you when your next period is due and when you ovulate for the next 4 months-its pretty cool!
