Maybe: If cycles are regular, it is very possible that ovulation is occurring at CD 13. So have sex every other day! Some woman feel pain with ovulation, but most don't. Pain in the left abdomen could also be pain from intestines, nerves, muscles. When someone ovulates, it doesn't mean that the embryo will implant on the same side as the ovary. Best of luck.
