Quite often I get these painful twitches near the location of my ovaries. Now if I somewhat remember some months I had this on one or the other side just before my period. But what I am wondering because it comes and goes on either side if this may have to do with having my tubes tied. Or if this is a natural process of your body going back to normal after. I don't remember having pains in this area after my other births. Doesn't feel like after pains either.
