    I have always wondered this since experts say there are changes physically and emotionally when a woman is ovulating at her peak

    Not really - which is why the rhythm method advised by the catholic church is the worlds least reliable type of birth control.

    Yes, i saw everything. I even looked at it when i was about to put it in my mouth. haha
    Im proud to say i didn't gag or anything. It was actually delicious.
    It's like eating the yellow part of the hard boiled egg.
    You should try it

    I can, but that's only because i know my cycle and i generally just feel happier, more confident and in a good mood around ovulation than around the time just before my period is due. It doesn't mean im fertile and ready to go, but i just generally happier around the first week of the cycle.

    TBH I'm pretty sure I know when I'm ovulating but I wouldn't rely on it by any means. I'm horny as **** for like one week- it'd be logical I'd be the most fertile then. Then for the rest of it I'm substantially less as aroused(like the same as I'm on my period where I'm quite clearly infertile).
    Though I don't think that all woman would have come to this conclusion for whatever reason.

    Well, if they have learnt about it yeah, otherwise no, girls don't know when they are most fertile, but they obviously do know when they want to have sex the most, so if they put 2 and 2 together they would probably realise :dontknow:

    First of all, emotional and physical changes aren't necessarily just during ovulation. Secondly, most girls don't have a good enough understanding of the menstrual cycle to be able to tell whether or not they're ovulating even if they do notice any physical changes. So the best way to know if you're ovulating is to monitor your basal body temperature. But semen can live for 3-7 days inside a woman's body so it's not exactly useful as contraception.

    Up to 20% of all women experience localised pain during ovulation, and of course those women can tell (if they know what it means). Some women can even tell which ovary provides the egg that particular month.

    There's usually a week in the month when I'm most horny, so I guess that's probably when I'm most fertile...

    I have no idea, and most girls probably don't either. I've never really had physical or emotional changes during my cycle (with the exception of horrible cramps when my period starts), so I've nothing to base it on. Even if someone did have such changes, it wouldn't really be at all conclusive; they could be feeling horny for other reasons, for instance. However, girls could still work it out obviously if they know when their last period was (again, I have no clue about this because I'm on contraception that stops my periods), how long their cycle is and how the menstrual cycle works, but it's far from an exact science.

    Also, after a quick google & reference to my own life experience, the bigger hips during ovulation thing seems like a complete myth.
