This can be determined well by the temperature measurement, as the body temperature increases with ovulation and the following two weeks also remains elevated.

Temperature measurement before getting up

It is important that you measure your temperature regularly over several months, always in the morning before getting up. You do not have to do this every day, every second day is enough. To get reliable readings, always measure your temperature in the same place, preferably under the tongue. Alternatively, in the vagina or in the anus.

At the time of ovulation, your body temperature rises quite reliably by about 0.4-0.5 ° C, sometimes by almost 1 ° C. After that, it stays at this elevated level for two weeks before falling back to the lower baseline levels.

If you take these measurements regularly for several months, you can see if ovulation continues or not.
