Ovulation cramps: One cannot feel implantation. Middle cycle pain around ovulation very common. We call it Mittelschmerz (German for mid cycle pain). If any chance at pregnancy, always best to do pregnancy test on first morning urine. Can be accurate 7-10 days after fertilization. Hope this helps. Good luck
