Lymph Node Sign of Impending Ovulation

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, December 21, 2015 | 0 comments

Image: Lymph Node SignThe Lymph Node Sign is helpful in about 75% of cases.

Around ovulation a lymph gland in the groin on the same side as the ovulating ovary enlarges to about the size of a pea and becomes tender when pressed.

Daily examination of this gland will reveal the increase in size and tenderness.

This is best done lying down with fingers straight, and pointing to the leg, so that the middle finger can feel the pulsating artery to the leg.

The index finger will then be over the lymph gland.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
