How common is it for women to not observe any signs of ovulation, and should this be a cause for concern?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

It is relatively common for women to not observe any signs of ovulation. In fact, some women may experience "silent" or asymptomatic ovulation, where there are no noticeable physical or hormonal changes. However, if you have been actively trying to conceive and consistently do not observe any signs of ovulation over several cycles, it may be worth discussing with your healthcare provider. They can help determine if further evaluation or testing is necessary to ensure everything is functioning as it should. Keep in mind that other factors such as stress, hormonal imbalances, certain medications, or underlying health conditions can also affect the presence or absence of ovulation signs.

The majority of women notice no symptoms at the time of ovulation. Some women do complain of pain mid-cycle, thought to be due to the enlarged follicle rupturing and releasing its egg. The pain is usually described as a sort of cramp, may last for up to two hours, and is felt near to whichever ovary is ovulating that month. Other signs of ovulation that some women may be aware of are an increase in the amount and the ‘stretchiness’ of vaginal mucus (from the cervix), and a very slight increase in body temperature.

The fact that you do not notice any signs of ovulation is nothing to worry about. If you have a regular cycle of around 28 days, it is likely that you are ovulating.
