Other way around: Ovulation can cause thick uterine lining and the other symptoms. It's not the thick lining that causes the ovulation. We used to think that women with pof never ovulated again. But more recent research shows that they will have random spontaneous ovulations more often that we thought possible. ...Read more

The approach for these are hormonal and antibiotics, respectively. Both are a little tricky to diagnose as well. Make sure you're not pregnant or dehydrated, first. Doctor may recommend a biopsy to diagnose. ...Read more

Is your uterus supposed to feel sore while you on your ovulation cycle?

It always comes from the ovary (right or left) and is therefore one sided. (the uterus is a midline structure).
