I have been on the birth control pill for 2 weeks today. I am having pain in my ovaries. Is this normal? Could I be ovulating? On ortho tricyclen
Could be: If this is your first package of pills you could be ovulating.

I missed a low-dose birth control pill and noticed cramping on my left side. Could ovulation have occurred?
Does the birth control pill cause a woman not to ovulate? And if so, why does a woman still have periods while on the pill?
