Ouch!

Ever since my last pregnancy and even after I've given birth, my ovaries hurt A LOT during ovulation.

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?

Ovarian pain is very common during ovulation. It is called mittelschmerz and about 20% of women experience it at some point. There are many processes related to ovulation that can cause pain, including the egg penetrating the ovarian wall, follicular swelling, and contraction of the fallopian tubes.

If you are concerned about the amount of pain or want to be checked out for ovarian cysts or other problems, see your doctor. Pain relievers can be given if necessary.

Yep, ovulation pain. I never had it much before my cycles returned after my last pregnancy, but now it's like clockwork.

Mine can get pretty painful and I've been told Vitex will help regulate everything more evenly and the pain would lessen.

I have always had pretty severe ovulation pain, bad enough to suspect appendicitis once and twice to suspect ectopic (that was before I started charting). If you know you ovulate and your cycle is a reasonable length then it is unlikely there is anything wrong. I have had u/s and seen a gyn oncologist. In my case it seems that I get pain because when the egg is released there is a some fluid released and the tissue around my ovary and ovary itself get inflamed and sore. I tend to have pain on and off until my period arrives. It is always more sore on the right.

After giving birth your hormone levels may have changes slightly and your body may be more sensitive to the hormones around ovulation.

If you are worried do check it out though, but don't panic as it is common.

While not a severe pain, I can always feel myself ovulate and there a a little pain with it.

I am so glad to hear I am not the only one experiencing this. The sensations I feel during ovulation really started after my 3rd birth. In between 2 & 3 I had a conization of my cervix for severe dysplasia. The conization came back with clear margins but there was in fact cancer in situ in what was removed so these new feelings during ovulation were beginning to worry me. I am ovulating now and when I woke up oh so early this AM I was trying to decide where to post this ??? Thanks for the input ladies.

I started feeling this after my 3rd too. I went to my gyn and had u/s done as well. Everything was fine. And that's how I got pg with my 4th.

No! Not just you at all. I've asked around even more and it seems to be more common than I thought.

I had hit and miss ovulation pain for years. Then I got an ovarian cyst and since then, if I was paying attention to the time during my cycle, I would identify ovaulation pain... but after having DS, it is VERY obvious when I am ovulating. It's not something that could go unnoticed. It's not the worst thing in the world, but I definitely feel it now more than ever.

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

I've experienced this since this birth of my first and also use it as birth control or as the frame to get pregnant in..... so far it's always worked for us. I wouldn't say I'm in extreme pain... just crampiness and a little achey.

I had the depo shot a few years ago and will never have it again. It lasts for 3 months and during those 3 months I only had maybe a week total with no period. Horrible
