After ovulation, the egg starts its journey through the fallopian tubes into the uterus, where it either gets fertilised or discharged with the next period. This means that the odds for getting fertilised are best in the days just following ovulation. This also means that those using 'safe periods' as a way of prevention should avoid having sex in the days around ovulation. Ovulation normally takes place around 14 days before the next period. A sure sign of ovulation is that the body temperature goes up some 0.5 degrees and stays there.
