Ovulation Symptoms Pain

Ruth asks…

Ovulation pain or something else?

Hi. My question is regarding ovulation pain and whether what I’m experience sounds like or doesn’t sound like ovulation pain. First of all, I think I ovulated on Friday looking at FF, though not sure (this is my first month using it). My pain started on monday (all day and night) continued Tuesday (all day and night) and noticable today (though less cramping feeling today more sore though). I do not have this (menstral like) cramping on only one side, it is felt on my entire lower abdomin. I’ve also not been interested in food, though doing better today with it. Do these symptoms sound like ovulation pain or something else? Early Pregnancy??? I was under the assumption that ovulation pain didn’t last long. Any advice or help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You could be getting your period cus i had that kind of pain when i was going to start my period and i never felt that feeling before it lasted for 2 or 3 day……Or you could be getting the implantation pains i had those 2 days ago and i don’t start my period till next week…..Good luck!!!

ovulation symptoms or something else?

I had my lmp on April 28, lasted 3 days, as usual. I took an opk, yesterday and today, two positive lines, but my breasts (both sides, closer to arms which I have had the last two months it seems) have been extrmely sore for about 4 days as well as small cramps for the last two……is this ovulation pains? I am not trying to get pg, I am however 34, and it would be ok, but wondering why my breasts woul dbe sore 10 days after my period? Thoughts?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Hormone changes can cause breast pain. Or a new workout routine, pulling weeds, etc.

As for ovulation, it’s usually determined by mucous discharge being clear and stretchy. Sometimes I ovulate earlier than usual. Knowing your body is a great thing.


Lizzie asks…

Does ovulation pain occur before or during ovulation and for how long?

Does anyone know if ovulation pain occur before or during ovulation and for how long?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

About one in five women experience pain and discomfort during ovulation. The duration of the pain varies from one woman to the next, but ranges from a few minutes to 48 hours. In most cases, ovulation pain doesn’t mean that anything is wrong. However, severe pain may sometimes be symptomatic of gynaecological conditions including endometriosis. See your doctor if your ovulation pain lasts longer than three days or is associated with other unusual menstrual symptoms, such as heavy bleeding. Ovulation pain is also known as mid-cycle pain and mittelschmerz (German for ‘middle pain’).

Sharon asks…

How many days does one ovulate?

I’ve been having ovulation pains or what feels like since the 31st of Jan today being the 11 of Feb its a little worse I’m wondering if pregnancy is possiable had sex during my cycle maybe it messed things up?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Ovulation generally occurs between 12 & 16 days *before* a period, it’s a one day affair. However your fertile for 3-4 days before ovulation & it’s possible to conceive then as sperm is then waiting for the egg to be released.

Ovulation symptoms only occur to the lucky few..! However there is absolutely no chance you’d experience it for 11 days.

If you had unprotected sex just prior to or during ovulation. Yes it’s possible your pregnant.
Very best of luck if you get to test.
