Ovulation is a normal physiological process for women of childbearing age, but because it cannot be seen or touched, there are many questions about ovulation. The method of measuring basal body temperature is simple but requires strict adherence and long-term persistence. Generally, it takes more than three menstrual cycles of continuous measurement to explain the problem.
The vast majority of people do not feel any sensation, only a few people may have non-specific symptoms such as mild abdominal pain and back pain during ovulation, but it is difficult to determine ovulation based on these symptoms. Some people have changes in sexual desire before and after ovulation, some may show an increase in libido, while others may show a decrease; some people may show an increase in transparent white discharge; and a few people may have minimal bleeding between menstrual cycles. The basal body temperature of the body changes before and after ovulation, but it is not easy to detect subjectively without testing through smart basal thermometer.
Some couples who use the safe period method of contraception may still unexpectedly conceive even if they strictly comply with the requirements and regulations. Why is that? It turns out that female ovulation is controlled by nerves and endocrine. When overexcited, nervous, changes in living environment or changes in physical health, ovulation can be affected, resulting in extra-ovulation during non-ovulation periods, which is extra ovulation. Women who are newly married or have reunited with their husbands after a long absence are most likely to have extra ovulation, so they should pay attention to contraception.
It refers to a disease called "luteinized unruptured follicle syndrome." Women with this disease have lutein formation in their menstrual cycle, but the follicle does not disappear even after 48 hours of luteinizing hormone peak formation, and continues to grow naturally, without excreting eggs. But during the entire menstrual cycle, indirect monitoring indicators for ovulation, such as basal body temperature, cervical mucus, and menstrual interval endometrial changes for patients with "false ovulation", are similar to those for women with normal ovulation. This can easily create a false impression of ovulation, so it is called "false ovulation."
Among women of childbearing age, some cases of false ovulation are intermittent, and there is still a possibility of conception; while others are continuous, which can lead to infertility. The cause of luteinized unruptured follicle syndrome is still unclear, but it is generally believed to be related to factors such as excessive mental stress, anxiety, endocrine disorders, pelvic inflammatory disease, and drug abuse.
Currently, medical diagnosis of "false ovulation" can rely on continuous B-ultrasound monitoring, laparoscopy, and vaginal posterior pituitary needle aspiration. Inducing ovulation is the main treatment. Currently, success has been achieved in inducing ovulation with follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone in postmenopausal women. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that this disease is caused by deficiency of the liver and kidneys or stagnation of qi and blood stasis. Therefore, the treatment focuses on nourishing the liver and kidneys, promoting qi circulation, and removing blood stasis.
During the menstrual cycle, if there are colds, fever, diarrhea, insomnia, alcohol consumption, use of electric blankets, etc., it is often easy to affect the basal body temperature. Therefore, attention should be paid to the proper marking and explanation of the measurements.
