Lower abd. pain: At age 34, ovulation may occur earlier than in your 20s, and not infrequently is accompanied by heavy clear mucus and lower back pain. Instead of on day 12-14, it may occur on day 9-11. This is caused by an increase in ovarian stimulation by the pituitary, resulting in larger follicle cysts with pain on the release of the egg. See your healthcare provider for advice.
