What causes bloating during ovulation?

What causes bloating during ovulation?

Progesterone: During ovulation a small cyst ruptures and releases the egg. There is usually fluid and blood released too. This may cause bloating and pain. Progesterone levels rise and stay high for 2 weeks. This leads to some of the pms symptoms like bloating, fluid retention, constipation, and others. If the symptoms pass it is likely related to ovulation. If not you should see you provider.

Pelvic pain and bloating during ovulation, help?

Hormonal Suppression: If these symptoms are always happening during ovulation (mid-cycle), it may be worth considering hormonal control and the prevention of ovulation using oral contraceptive/birth control pills continuously (skipping periods and only using active pills). Bloating tends to occur from the release of Progesterone that occurs when you ovulate.

Hormones: You have a hormonal surge when you ovulate, and apparently you have an untoward side effect from it as described by your symptoms. Check with your gyn dr. And they may be able to help.

Yes: Whenever you have unprotected intercourse, you are at risk for pregnancy. Usually a urine test will not show you are pregnant until time for your next period. If symptoms continue, see your doctor and get checked, a blood pregnancy test can be positive within a week or so of conception.

Constipation during fever with bloating for past 3 days and mouth dryness from yesterday What should I do about it? Fever has decreased and less tired

Fever, constipation: Fever can cause fluid loss thru sweating that can lead to dehydration if fluid intake is poor. Bloating can come from gas-forming foods, air swallowing when eating, or infection (food poisoning, "stomach flu"). Replacing fluids is essential to prevent severe dehydration (& continued constipation). If problem persists, see FP to determine cause of fever especially if fever was over 101ยบ

Get evaluated.: You could have IBS, but you could have other causes of your symptoms such as inflammatory Bowel Disease, celiac disease, or Crohn's disease. You should get in to your physician or gastroenterologist and have a complete evaluation. Keep a diary of your symptoms and a food log as well - this may help in your evaluation.

Light pink discharge during ovulation then brownish for a couple of days. Now it is watery clear discharge with bloating, fatigue and cramps. Pregnant?

Possibly: A home pregnancy test will confirm your symptoms in a matter of minutes. The tests are accurate and fast. If not pregnant, consider repeating in a couple of days if you've missed your period. Otherwise, some Ibuprofen can help with cramping. Clear discharge from vagina is normal.

Pelvic pain during sex (Same partner for 2.5 yrs), chronic constipation, lower right ab pain with sudden movements/bm's. Severe Gas and bloating, too.

Go see ur Family Doc: You appear to have several more complicated issues than can be addressed in 400 characters. Chronic constipation is often aggravated by inadequate fiber, fluids & exercise. It can also lead to gas & bloating as well as abdominal pain. Dyspareunia or painful sex needs to be addressed by Family Doc or Gyn. Perhaps complication of surgery, sexually transmitted infection, endometriosis or adhesions.

During ovulation, breasts very sore and swolen, bloating...Menstruation extremely sore and can't walk straight because of pain. What can I do about it?

During ovulation, breasts very sore and swolen, bloating...Menstruation extremely sore and can't walk straight because of pain. What can I do about it?

Many options pill #1: Remember, ovulation is around the middle of the cycle, around day #14 if the cycle. Then, compounded by severe menstrual pain, first line treatment is the birth control pill. A workup may reveal an enlarged uterus making pain more significant. There are surgical options if having a baby is complete. Do you sleep well at night, have headaches, back pain and/ or panic attacks?

Are digestive enzyme supplements helpful during pregnancy in alleviating symptoms such as heartburn and or constipation and or gas/bloating?

Are digestive enzyme supplements helpful during pregnancy in alleviating symptoms such as heartburn and or constipation and or gas/bloating?

Probably not...: Taking additional digestive enzymes is not likely to help with symptoms such as heartburn, constipation, or gas bloating unless a person has an underlying deficiency of digestive enzymes. Changes in the types of foods, the size of meals, the body position during/after meals, etc..., can help symptoms somewhat. An ob-gyn or G.I. Doctor may evaluate to see if symptoms are typical for a pregnancy.

I have very painful ovulation. Sharp pain in pelvic area on one side/constipation/pain with trying for bowel movement/bloating. Should I be worried?

I have very painful ovulation. Sharp pain in pelvic area on one side/constipation/pain with trying for bowel movement/bloating. Should I be worried?

Painful: ovulation (called "Mittleschmerz") is fairly common but what you are describing sounds more like Irritable Bowel -C (C=constipation). A trial of PROBIOTICS may be useful (eg: ACTIVA") but a visit to your PCP or Family Physician is most likely your next step! Hope this is helpful Dr Z

Are slight nausea and bloating some of the signs of ovulation?

Are slight nausea and bloating some of the signs of ovulation?

Yes: These are very common symptoms of ovulation. The key in attributing these symptoms to this is tracking the regularity of the discomfort and the time it lasts. Ovulation pain and these other symptoms will rarely last more than 24-36 hours and tends to be very predictable at midcycle.
