Ovulation pain - what is it like?

We are TTC#2 at the moment and I am on CD12 . I haven't really tracked my cycles before. DS was conceived first month of trying and I have been back on the pill since then. Since yesterday I have had quite a strong pain in my right groin that tracks down my leg. It can make me feel quite sick at times. Would this be a sign of ovulation? We are quite relaxed about conceiving so don't really want to start temp checking and using opks until a bit further down the line.

Thanks for the help!

Could be, although I don't ever get a pain going down my leg.
I had it last night. A stabbing pain in my right ovary and felt bloated and uncomfortable. It only lasts a few hours but was enough to keep me awake.

The best way I can describe my ovulation pain is that it feels like I've been hit between the legs with a cricket bat! It's horrible, but some months are worse than others. I have felt sick with it before, but not always. The thing I will never know though is whether this pain heralds the beginning of ovulation, or whether it happens afterwards hmm

Hi. I've suffered with it most of my adult life. It's very very sharp and intense and will radiate through to my back. I also suffer with pain in my groin and leg too. Some months I can sail through it but others im bed ridden with hot water bottles. It can last hours or days and leaves me feeling bruised in that area. I too will bloat up like we can do with PMT and feel very sick. Funnily enough I hardly suffer with PMT ovulation is my worst time of the month. My mom suffers and my sister too.

The joys ay?

Thanks for the replies! Oh so I am still unsure as to whether it was ovulation pain or not! Its eased off now anyway so only time will tell!

I often get a sharp pain on one side and then ridiculous bloating. This month it was quite late in my cycle so not sure if it was ovulation but I'm kind of hoping not as it would mean my Luteal phase is too short.

Mine feels like when you get a stitch running! Just on one side and lasts for about a day.

All sounds similar to my ovulation pain

I get a sharp pain in either my left or right side under my hip, accompanied by a shooting pain that can feel like it's going down my leg - a stitch is a good way to describe it. Lasts about two days for me, it is not always constant. Some months are worse than others and I too can need a hotwater bottle or be doubled over in pain.

Also get very bloated and feel a bit green around the edges.

Currently going through it at the moment which is why I'm wide awake at nearly 1am.

I get a pain a bit like a stitch but lower - sort of to one side of my groin and it always goes down my leg. It's not agonising it's just sort of niggly. A bit like the stretching pains I had in early pregnancy.
