Vaginal Pain During Ovulation
I haven't had the money or time to make it to my MW for a pap. Does anyone know where I can get more info about this. It lasts hours, (kinda like my labors!) I know some people said it was fairly short for them so I wonder if it is something to be worried about. I do have to say that it is nice to know when O is here though.
I'm a bit different because I don't have my period any longer since I've had a hysterectomy but I do still have my ovaries (I know I still ovulate). It's an all over vaginal pain that has been so bad I dropped to my knees a couple times! I did bring it up to my ob/gyn and she said that she wasn't sure but asked me to come in while I'm having the pain so that she can try and figure it out. Problem is that it doesn't happen on a set scheduale and normally only lasts for a day (although this time it lasted 2 days) I do remember having it a few times when I was having a cycle but it was always followed by a large clot(sorry if that's a bit gross) Now it's at least once or even twice a month If anyone knows for sure what this is, please let me know so that I can suggest it to my doctor! I would greatly appreciate it!
I know this thread is very old, but just wondering if anyone found out any information on this?
I have been aware of mittelschmerz (pain in lower abdomen on one side when ovulating) for many years now, but it has only been the last 6 months or so that I have had this additional pain during ovulation, similar to some of those described above. For me it is an all over aching in the vagina - heavy pressure - and honestly feels (but doesn't look) like a prolapse! I have also had a hysterectomy like one of the previous posters, but I still have my cervix, ovaries and a small amount of uterine tissue that allows me to have minor bleeding each month in addition to ovulation....wondering if it is somehow related to the hyst? Anyway, for me it lasts about a day and it is far more uncomfortable when standing up. Last night, however, I needed to get up from sleeping to take some advil.
Anyway, if anyone has an update or info it would be lovely to hear from you. I will mention at my next appointment, but that likely won't be for several months.
