Does ovulation pain mean it is happening RIGHT NOW???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,
I have been having what I think is ovulatory pain this afternoon,lower back ache and quite sharp twinges just inside my hip bone, specifically on the right hand side, but also a dull ache on the left aswel as the odd twinge. Is this normal to feel it on both sides? I thought you were only meant to ovulate from one side?
Also does this mean I am actually ovulating RIGHT NOW??? Or that is has happened... or is about to happen? I will wait to see what my temp does tomorrow morning, I was just curious though and was interested to know your thoughts. Oh and I had EWCM too, so I think something is definatly going on down there, LOL!
TIA!

oooh, time to get it ON!!! lol. i think some women feel pain at the exact moment of ovulation but others just have some pain/crampiness in the area around O time. i've had O cramps for a day or two before my temp and CM showed ovulation. so maybe you are Oing right now or on the verge of it!

I get the pains 3-4 days before ovulation. What helped me figure that out was using an opk as well as temp charting. According to what I've read, it can happen before, during, or after ovulation, and it can be on one side or both sides. You just never know until you chart it! But in your case I would start bd-ing now, esp. if your temp hasn't come up yet!

for me o-pain always meant right now. I was charting at the time, o-pain would last an hour or 3 and the next day I'd have my rise.

Hiiiiii Nina ... I just got the start of my LH surge and will be ovulating tomo or day after. I also have EWCM and will start BDing from today , no cut offs for a girl this time, we will be BDing till I confirm the ovulation with temp spike. Are you doing any cut off for this month? I secretly hope you ovulate tomo or day after so that we can be cycle buddies this time too

Thenu!!!!!!
It made me smile when I saw that you had posted! Why am I excited that I am ovulating??? I need to get a life, lol!
I am so glad you and DH have decided to go for it, it's exciting! We did cut off this month....but I am not sure how many more cycles we will stick with it, not sure we have the patience!
I am expecting to ovulate tomorrow, so we will wait to see what the morning brings with my temp. I would love it if we were cycle buddies again!!!
And I stocked up on lots of tests... 20p each!!! They are just little strips of paper... hope they work ok! Hehe! (they should do, the supplier said they supply our National health Service!)
I am excited for our 2WW to start, though I am sure it will be killing me by the end!
Sending you lots and lots of baby dust your way!
