It Can: Ovulation can cause some crampy abdominal pain similar to menstrual cramps. It typically occurs in the second week of your menstrual cycle and lasts 2-4 days. Taking Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen can help alleviate the pain.

It is seen in about 20% of ovulating women, called mittleschmertz, a German term for “middle pain”. Trivia- time!

Ovulation ?'s: Ovulation by definition causes rupture of an ovarian cyst, which at age 34 can be larger than normal, since higher levels of FSH can stimulate ovarian follicle growth, with cyst rupture causing sharp pain on one side or another. See your gyn physician for an exam and possibly a trans-vaginal ultrasound to make sure of the diagnosis, as there are other causes for mid-cycle pain.

Duh!!!: You don't need to know because it will not help you care for yourself. Only if you are writing a research paper. For chronic pain begin a self-care with a wellness program of vits, magnesium glycinate, sleep hygiene, exercise, self massage, chiropractor, yoga, heat, epsom tub soaking, stretching all are needed. In my practice I use acupuncture and myofascial tissue release.

A 32-year-old female asked:

Why does the LH surge stimulating ovulation cause fatigue, headache and acheyness ? What can one do to eleviate those symtoms?

Dr. Annette Fineberg

Hormones: When you have your lh surge, your estrogen level is high and your ovary has a small cyst that is about to burst (ovulate.) moderate exercise such as a brisk walk or swim is probably helpful. Tylenol (acetaminophen) would also be a reasonable and safe.
