Do you feel it on alternating sides? I didn't start to notice it either until after I had my kiddos. It is a great way to be aware of that dangerous time of the month.
I do have to add though that when I started feeling it more intensely on my left side every month, and for more days than usual, I went to see my ob-gyn. I have a very small cyst, and he was suprised that I even "felt" it. He's been keeping an eye on it for a year, and it hasn't grown, but I definitely feel it on my left side every month (and more intensely some months, I'm guessing on those cycles when I'm ovulating on that side). Yours is probably just the normal mittelshmertz, but you can always have a check-up with your ob-gyn to make sure

In fact, it's always one of the best ways I know I'm ovulating and it's been good birth control.
"Honey, I'm in pain again. Condoms today."
It feels like STRONG pins and needles, achiness and general cramping.
Could it be an ovarian cyst?
Could it be overian cancer?
Why do I only feel it when I'm ovulating?
