Yes: ovulation pain can sometimes last 3-4 days but usual is 24-48 hours.
if periods shorter than usual do pregnancy test.
cycle can be sometimes affected by emotional stress and occasionally women can have anovulatory cycles also

I don't think having: ovulation symptoms for four days is terribly unusual. Most women experience only a day or two, but the effects of hormones and egg release could certainly persist a little longer. With irregular periods, you can not be certain when you ovulate, and I would not rely on the presence of symptoms to indicate when it is...either for purposes of conception OR contraception. Stay well:)

Options : Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.

I had a radiofrequency turbinate reduction 2 days ago and last night smoked a few cigarettes. Will this ruin the results of the procedure?

Depends: Creatinine is scientific, GFR not so much. What kicked you into kidney failure? Labs do make mistakes though rarely. Ibuprofen and other painkillers can do this. So can getting dried out on a hot day. Your personal physician is in the best position to say.
