Is it too late to BD tonight if I felt my ovulation pain this afternoon?
Thanks! I wasn't aware of that. For some reason I was just assuming that the pain meant the egg was being released....but a quick google search brought up lots of women asking about O pains in relation to ovulation, and it is quite variable. I was worried this morning when my temp didn't rise because I was assuming that I O'd yesterday, but now I know some women don't ovulate until a few days after the pain, so that makes me feel better.
For me personally, I tend to feel O pain leading up to ovulation, a sharp pain which signals actual ovulation, then a decrease in pain. Makes it easy for me. It doesn't happen like that every month, though. There are a few months where I barely feel anything at all.
I think as long as you are close to your O pain, it could be successful. Timing for right before ovulation is the most successful, but right after can be, too. As long as it's not, like, 2 days after, there's always a chance.
Thanks. According to my chart, I ovulated 2 days after I initially felt the O pains (discomfort near my ovary, low ab and back crampiness, bloat) Pre-TTC I was going off of that pain to loosely keep track of my cycles and luteal phase, but now I know I was probably off on my LP by a couple days. Interesting stuff.
