So here are 3 kinds of safe and natural contraceptives you can use to detect ovulation:
1. Cervical secretion and position monitoring
Your vagina has mucous that changes in consistency and amount at different days of your menstrual cycle. To know when your ovulation is near, which is the most fertile set of days, look out for mucous discharge in your cervix that is very wet, slippery, clear and thick. It will be so to catch the sperms easily. At most other times, it will be creamy and sticky. Immediately after ovulation, there tends to be no mucous. During ovulation, your cervix will also be softer and higher than usual.

3. Basal body temperature method
