I never thought that I got OV pains, until recently. I usually get very mild AF type pains for a day or so, followed by a very sharp pain on one side which last only a few mins - occasionally I have actually yelped in shock!
"Do you think that if a person gets very painful pains and feelings that require a painkiller in order to continue normal life, there is something very wrong? Every single month. cant sit down some days. Always mid cycle, always same feelings".
Mid cycle pains if cyclical and as painful as you describe could well be attributed to endometriosis so you should seek medical advice asap from a gynae. It is the second most common gynae problem seen in women after fibroids yet it is very much underdiagnosed. Problem with endo as well is that it is usually only diagnosed through a keyhole surgery op called a laparoscopy.
Are your periods very painful as well?. If they are this is yet another reason to seek medical advice sooner rather than later.
I had pains last month for the first time ever. It was very strange, like Braxton Hicks, but on one side (my left) low down. It felt like very earl movements, like 12 weeks bubbles.
It was noticeable enough to stop me doing stuff and was very distracting. I donk think its endometriosis(sp) as I see my gynae 6 monthly for another issue and it would probably have been discovered. I have very light periods and am super fertile.
