I just wanted to let you know, that this is usually normal.
The follicle on the ovary that you ovulated from remains, and is called the corpus luteum. This is what supports the pregnancy in the early weeks until your placenta is mature enough to kick in. It's very busy producing progesterone, and will do until about 10 weeks. As a result you can experience niggling sharp pains on your ovary.
Of course if you are at all worried, or are in very bad pain, then absolutely get checked out.
I just wanted to let you know that I had this in all of my pregnancies, and I'm still getting niggly pains now. I have endometriosis on my right ovary too, so it's a little over sensitive to start with.
My suggestion would be to set up an appointment as soon as they can get you in. It's possible you have a cyst on your ovary (especially if you've had them in the past) and they might need to keep an eye on it.
Also, sharp pains are nothing to mess around with. Pay attention to your body.
As someone who had a 10 cm cyst and found out at 7 weeks pregnant, I recommend seeing about it. My pain was so severe that I thought I'd had an ectopic pregnancy though... Best to be safe rather than sorry, but Krissieg is right about some niggles being normal!
when I went for my scan the doctor who done it said I bet your getting pain in your left overy I said yeah and he said yes this is the side where the egg has come from so it's normal. if you are worried or it's really bad I would go er but it's probably normal. why don't you ring your doctor and her advice at least it will put your mind at rest x
