Sign You’re Ovulating: Sex Fantasies!

PUBLISHED ON 03/28/2012

If you’re trying to conceive, you might be doing a number of things to track your fertility, like counting the days of your menstrual cycle and taking your basal body temperature. And now there’s one more detail that might help you know when you’re most fertile: The number of sex fantasies you’re having. According to LiveScience, a new study from the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada women may have more sex fantasies when they’re ovulating.

Researchers got 27 heterosexual women (most of them were college-aged) to keep track of their daily sexual fantasies in an online diary for a month. The women weren’t on birth control and took drugstore ovulation tests during each of the 10 days they would most likely ovulate. The average number of sexual fantasies for each woman was 0.77 a day, but around the time the women ovulated, those fantasies increased an average of 1.3 a day.

Very convenient, since if it’s the right time of the month for babymaking, you’re going to want to have an increased sex drive.

Do your sexual fantasies increase when you’re ovulating? What do you think of this study?
