i'm ovulating and over near my hip hurts a lot - sorta crampy i guess is how i'd describe it. i feel fine until i move about.<br><br>
i know its a factor of ovulating and i'm not worried but i am curious as to what exactly is going on<br><br>
is this the ovary itself that hurts? earlier it was on both hips, now seems settled on one<br><br>
i know its normal but have never really learned exactly what the cause is

I love the technical name for ovulation pain: Mittelschmerz<br>
I get it too - sometimes it's really painful. I looked it up for myself and here's a great site that explains it:<br><br><a href="http://www.umm.edu/ency/article/001503.htm" target="_blank">http://www.umm.edu/ency/article/001503.htm</a>
