It seems like every month I have mild, dull pain in my lower pelvic area right around the time of ovulation. Anyone else have this? I've been noticing it ever since I've been off the pill, which has been a few years now. It took me a while to realize that it was always happening around the middle of my cycle. Just wondering if this sounds normal and if so, would that pain be a reliable sign of ovulation?

I get ovulation pain/cramps for DAYS before 'o'. But usually they seize once 'o' has occurred.

So yes - I would says its reliable indication that your ovaries are trying to release an egg.

Yes, that's normal. I remember reading about it as a teen, and that it was called mittelschmerz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mittelschmerz), but I never felt it, or so I thought. I did, I just never made the connection.

MITTELSCHMERZ??!!!!! That's funny! ::

I had no idea there was a name for this!!

Seriously, Viola, thanks for this info and the link. This is really informative! Wish I'd asked about this a long time ago - don't know why I didn't, it was kind of worrying me there for a while.
