    When you get OV pains, does it mean that you are OVing right now, or when it ends? I have had OV pains since about 10am this morning and I still have them now but they are stronger at the mo.

    They can happen before, during and/or after. So unless you add it to other ways of detecting o, it can't tell you too much.

    Before: the pain is from the build up of the follicle and the fact that it is close to bursting
    During: the pain is from the actual bursting of the follicle
    After: the pain is from the reabsorbtion of fluid released when the follicle burst.

    I got o pain every month and could usually even tell what ovary the egg was from. However, it never came at the exact same time. I could get it anywhere from 2 days before to 2-3 days after the egg actually popped.

    So, it is best to combine o pain with something else, like opks or charts, to pinpoint o.

    I got a +ve OPK yesterday and the pain today. According to my chart I usually OV the day of my +ve OPK or the day after and I always have my OV apin the day after a +ve OPK so it's not the most helpful of things.

    before, during or after, which is incredibly unhelpful!!
