Ovulation pain is really hard to go by considering it can happen at the beginning of the egg release, the middle of the egg release or even right after. Are you using opk’s? A positive opk shows that your body is preparing to ovulate within the next 24-72 hours. Using a calendar app may give you an idea of when you will but unless you have a 28 day textbook cycle it may not work for you.

If the pain you’re feeling is the egg dropping, you’re kind of in the middle.  Sperm can live inside you for up to 48 huors and your egg can be fertilized for 24.  So, saying you had sex yesterday and you ovulate today, you’d be good to go.  Does that make sense?

Ovulation pain is confusing because we don’t really know WHY it happens. It is thought to be irritation from the fluid from the egg being released – which we don’t know if that irritation occurs before, during or after the egg is released, so no one really knows how it is related. I made a thread about it a little while ago, I will link it in a sec.

If your temp spiked today, it is likely that you ovulated yesterday so your fertile days ended yesterday. Good luck!

@Birdee106:  I was able to feel my egg dropping on the day that I was supposed to ovulate.  This was when I was on meds to force me to ovulate, so I’m about 99% sure that’s what it was.  Some women feel it, others don’t.  It’s all very weird!

The spike in temp occurs the day following ovulation. Once you have three high temps you can confirm ov. Temping is great for confirming ov, but you may want to look into opk’s to know when your body is preparing to ov (and is most fertile). Check out sperm meets egg plan for one way to go about ttc. Good luck!

missrain is right – the temp spike occurs AFTER you’ve ovulated.  So if your temp is elevated today, there’s a good chance you ovulated yesterday but you won’t be sure until you’ve had at least three days of higher temps.

@Birdee106:  Lol, the temperature spike signifies ovulation has occured, not that it is going to occur. It is not used to predict ovulation, it is used to confirm it. I thought the same thing when I first started temping! You should see a continuous rise in temps over the next 2 weeks if you did in fact ovulate yesterday.

@Birdee106:  That’s actually really good timing, fingers crossed for you! You should really consider using OPK’s, they tell you when you should have sex 😉
