Yes, it’s normal. Cramping after ovulation is usually due to irritation from the fluid that was released when the follice bursts during ovulation.

I sometimes still have have cramping 2-3 days post ovulation. My Dr. says it is nothing to be alarmed by. I have an electric water bottle that I take to bed with me and I usually pop 2 advil during ovulation b/c my initial ovulation cramps are so killer they wake me up out of a sound sleep, so I have to track and be prepared for them!! They are useful in the sense that I know when I’m fertile, but the pain is more acute then pms cramps. Feel better!

GreaterisHE:  It varies. I wouldn’t worry about it.

GreaterisHE:  It is going to vary person to person. If it becomes really bothersome to you, I would see a gyn and get checked out. Cramping can be felt for other reasons too, like from an ovarian cyst. I also had a cyst that broke and the breaking resulted in radiating cramps for days. It was not a serious or life threatening matter and eventually subsided. Cysts are genetic and some are prone to getting them. The cyst was seen on an ultrasound, that is how they verify it is there for sure, but sometimes they can feel them with a physical exam if they are large enough. If you are in a lot of pain, I would see a Dr., they can prescribe pain meds that are stronger than Advil if you need it. It is never not worth mentioning when your health is involved!
