    Anyone else get lots of low tummy pain after they have ovulated?

    It almost feels like a mix of womb pain, trapped wind, period pain and constipation!

    Even bd is painful!

    Tummy feels swollen, and as if someone has kicked me. I know it will be gone soon, but still.

    Come tell me about yours:flower:

    I get it every month after o day. Some days this pain is so bad, I feel like there is a small heavy iron ball near ovary.

    I also get bloating, pain and some days I cannot eat and some days I want to eat and eat and eat.

    Vit B6 helps. I am sure this is not same for you- you may have good kind of pain- pain before your BFP!

    Good luck.

    Hey MsLesley!

    I get that too! Weird twinges near ovary and the first month this happened I thought this is it! Without testing I was so sure that I was pregnant but nothing. After that it happens every month and now I know!

    I just looked at my past charts to see if my Ov pains came before or after Ov but it says that I get them before, during and after. Lucky me.

    mine is actually in my uterus...and i have read alot of ladies calling ovulation pains, cramping and actually meaning in the ovaries but i get both sometimes but mostly cramps that feel like menstrual cramps in my uterus...silly question but that normal? do you other ladies get menstrual type cramping in your uterus too before/during/after ovulation?

    I'm 9 dpo, and have been bloated since O. This is only my second cycle after BCP, so maybe I've just forgotten, but I swear I'm not normally this bloated! I've had to wear control undergarments (spanx) to work the last few days :( . I've had mild twinges and AF style cramps since the weekend as well.

    It's frustrating that I'm TTC, cause I don't know if it's just my body adjusting to not being on BCP, or if (fingers crossed) I may end up preggers . . .

    edit: If AF arrives next week I'm definitely going on a diet . . .

    Just a big FYI

    Ovulation cramps occur in your RIGHT side of your belly, around where your appendix is. That's why some women (like me) end up in the hospital with the doctors looking for appendicitis while they are ovulating.

    Weird huh? I never knew until I ended up in the ER! LOL!

    I believe you are correct, Fiore :)

    I think each month it alternates on which side you ovulate from.

    Nope, doesn't alternate all the time. The ovaries actually battle it out to produce a mature egg and then one of them wins. Then, the eggs themselves within the ovary that "won" battle it out amongst themselves. Cool right? So technically you can ovulate from the same ovary every time ( I do, or at least feels like I do)

    TRUE which is why I thought it was weird that you always get the same kind of pain on your right side.

    Even when i ov on my left side, i get light pain on my left BUT always that same very painful feeling on my right side.


    I also recently read an article that said that women who DO feel ovulation only get pain on their right side, around where the appendix is found.:thumbup:

    Hi ladies, i can feel which side i ov from and sometimes its alternative and sometimes not, the last 3 cycles have been from my left side, which is brilliant as i can only fall preg from the left side as i have a bicornuate uterus and the right side is dodgy and i m/c from the right, so according to my consultant some woman can feel their ov and there implantation pain.

    I'm forever getting little twinges where I (think) my overies are!! Come to think of it, it's usually in my right. Maybe I'll end up with triplets or something? lol xx

    Fairy dust to everyone!!!!!!

    I wonder why it is on the right?

    Pain has now been replaced with a heavy feeling on womb, like its an after soreness....maybe

    I O'd twice on Clomid... once from each side... I could easily tell you which side it was happening from and when... definitely had the pain switch sides. Weird about the right side thing... confusing too if "only the right" is normal! Goes to show that we can't just all work the same and make it easy!
