The first phase starts with the first day of your period or monthly cycle. The body starts making various hormones that helps in production of egg inside ovaries. Between day 2 and 14 these hormones helps to thicken the lining of uterus. A hormone called luteinizing hormone (LH) helps triggers the release of egg from ovaries. At this time cervical mucus is produced in more quantity which promotes the easy movement of sperm into uterus to reach egg and mate.
Tracking your most fertile days
