Weird ovulation stuff!

Since I went perimenopausal, I've been getting some really strange "symptoms" around week 2 of my cycle, and I was wondering if anyone else has similar?

I get stitch-like pains in my lower abdomen, just next to my hipbone, on one side only (not the same side each month). I guess this is the actual ovulation pain, but the rest doesn't seem to make much sense - for example, I get a sort of lesion on my gum that bleeds, and I also get what is charmingly called post nasal drip, i.e. lots of excess catarrh in the back of my throat, so I always feel like I want to cough.

Does anyone else get this, or any other odd monthly symptoms?

I get exactly the same time of stitch pain! Said to DH about it yesterday, funnily enough. I find it usually triggers a couple of bad days with my IBS too.

I was just going to ask Mumsnet about this. I have a cough around ovulation and notice that I get one every month. I thought I had some lung issue but I think it's the perimenopause.

My ovulation is getting really painful. Sharp, constant pains almost like a stitch.
I'm about to take maca to see of that will help with the symptoms. I'll let you know how it goes
