Mid cycle ovary pain. is this a thing? or should I worry?
Really nasty griping pain yesterday - subsided and left with a dull ache thereafter. Still tender today. I'm pretty sure it's connected to ovulation but Sr Google naturally diagnoses ovarian cancer. I think this is extremely unlikely, btw! Anyone else get this?
I get this too, exactly in the middle of my cycle. It's on and off for a few days then disappears til same time next month. If you're worried see a GP but if no other symptons then its just mid cycle ovary pain or "mittelschmerz" (middle pains).
Yep, my ovulation pain has become as bad as, if not worse than, period pain. I get a rock hard, bloated belly, constipation, nausea and a head ache. It's been gradually getting worse since I had children but it's a lot worse in the last 18 months. It's definitely effective for family planning I'd fucking kill dh if he even looks at me side ways.
Watching with interest. I started getting similar recently. The pain is bad for me- enough to to pass out and it is only at ovulation time. GP said to take Ibuprofen, which prevented me from passing out at least this cycle. I've had an ultrasound but it wasn't a cyst, am having blood tests, but so far no answers. It is always on the RHS, so a puzzle that it doesn't swap about like kelper says. Hope you get some answers.
Oh,didn't mean to be generically negative about the family planning benefits - just that my mom hopes (in the face of all evidence) that I will use the ovulation pain to TTC another grandchild for her. In fact, Hell will freeze over before I will TTC again. But nonetheless, can definitely see that ovulation pain is useful for these purposes.
Gosh Buntingsmum, that sounds awful. I have it both sides, but one (every other month) is definitely worse than the other. Bizarrely, I have also noticed that I've started to feel really good for the three days or so around my ovulation time (ignoring the 12 hours or so of pain). A real feeling of heightened (positive) emotions. Was on hormonal contraception, or pregnant, for most of my adult life prior to this, so perhaps this is just how life feels?
