The opk may be wrong: The digital lh monitors are good but there can be false positives. On the other hand clear cervical mucus is a good but not perfect sign of high estradiol usually from ovulation but can be from an ovarian cyst. Consider working with a physician to check via ultrasound or blood to better know your cycle if this happens repetitively. Also when the next cycle comes or you have a +preg test will help

See a rei specialist: If your tubes really is dilated you may want to consider its removal. Talk to a specialist about a laparoscopy to look at it and consider its removal. Also ivf may be the best way to conceive if you have tubal disease.

Difficult to confirm: In the second half of the cycle...the corpus luteum (the post ovulation cyst that makes hormones ) may be tender, its demise may be tender and cause cramping and of course if one conceives the ovary may be tender. As the uterus grows and changes women may feel changes. Cramping may also be from the intestines. In summary cramping may Have many etiologies so it is hard to know.
