FutureMrsK2014:  Yes, actually I would, but not necessarily each month (or I wasn’t paying attention). I’m pregnant now, but especially the first 3 cycles off BCPs I had ovulation pain and super light spotting. I usually felt it on the left side, but had a few months where I felt it on the right. I don’t think mine was ever continuous. It was sharp and would go on and off for about an hour, but never a whole day.

FutureMrsK2014:  Yes, I think I get it every month. It’s never for a long time, usually on/off for an hour or two and it switches sides monthly. It’s kind of like a dull stabbing pain? It’s not very painful for me, but from what I’ve read there are all sorts of normal in terms of intensity & duration of pain and it all seems to be normal. I think it’s a blessing (although mine doesn’t last long and isn’t super painful), I really like that I can tell around when O is occuring, very useful.

FutureMrsK2014:  Before I got pregnant, I definitely noticed it. I could tell which side I ovulated on each time (confirmed through ultrasound as well).  I had pretty intense, sharp pains which would last for the whole day, and they were always very localized to either the right or left side (for me it was more left than right). There was no denying that it was ovulation pain (although some people say not to count on pain to confirm ovulation), but both my temping, OPK’s, and pregnancy all confirmed exactly which day I ovulated on.  I told my husband one time it felt like people were sitting in my ovary stabbing me with hot knives.

I kind of appreciated having the pain because it let me know that I infact ovulated (I have PCOS, so ovulating at any point was a win for me).

I had some ovulation pain, most months.  It didn’t last very long, maybe on and off for 30m to an hour.  Temping and OPKs confirmed ovulation

I always have gotten ovulation pain, and I can tell which side I’m ovulating based on the pain.  I would say it feels a little like a side-ache that you can get from running, but lower, obviously, and not quite as bad.  Mine used to always last about 2-6 hours, but after I had an ectopic pregnancy last fall, I now get ovulation pain on and off through most of my luteal phase.  I asked my OB about it, and she wasn’t worried, so hopefully it doesn’t mean anything bad!

I get ovulation pain that lasts 2-3 days. It feels like period cramps.

Yes I do, I can tell which side it is on too.. To me it feels like when I’m on my period because of the crampy feeling/aching in that spot.  It lasted strongly on O day, and when I took my OPK it was a definitely positive.  Also a few days before I break out too..  After the positive OPK the next day it is slightly crampy in the morning but goes away quickly.

berrybunny:  I get it too – I had a tiny/tiny bit yesterday, but I don’t ovulate until the 30th! I don’t OPK or do Fertile Friend, I just keep track of my periods and the day I ovulate and/or leading up to ovulation. I don’t have the time or the money to spend on OPK’s – I made that mistake before and spent wayyyyyyyyyyyy too much money on it to where I was overwhelming myself and getting stressed out! Who needs that in the process of baby making?

ADiamondInTheRough:  I get sharp pains too around the time I ovulate, it’s not a pleasant pain – but it’s a pain that excites me! 🙂 🙂

mamabricker2016:  I started using OPK’s for the first time this cycle, I’m glad I did it: I get ovary pains before I ovulate! I always thought it was the same day, but no, it was about 2-3 days before ovuation! I had no idea. I am really torn on continuing to use OPK’s or stop and not stress/worry about it. I agree, it can be too overwhelming and stressful and likely affect my ability to conceive! If anything, it was useful for the knowledge of pain vs actual ovulation time for me!

When I went off the pill, the first two cycles after I had horrible ovulation pain. It lasted for days. My third cycle, I had no pain. I thought each side had to “wake up” from me being on the pill so long and that’s why it hurt so bad. I will mention it to my doctor if it happens again, but I really think it was the pill.

Before I went on the pill, I use to get it now and then, but not every month. Usually taking ibuprofen killed the pain almost immediately.

This is our first time trying and I have been getting them. I never noticed it before because we werent ttc. I had a moment where I thought I may have ovulated early and it was implantation but there was no way based on my CD.
