Positive OPK 1-21 and 1-22 ovulation pain 1-22 what day will I most likely have ovulated?

Trust the pain: I would err on trusting the pain. But, if you are trying to get pregnant the issue is not the specific day, but getting sperm into the vagina on the five days before ovulation. So, whether ovulation occurs on the 21st or 22nd, you should be getting exposed to sperm on the 16th through the 22nd. ...Read more

3 nearly positive OPKs the last three days. Ovulation pain also. Would this mean I'm ovulating or nearly ovulating?

3 nearly positive OPKs the last three days. Ovulation pain also. Would this mean I'm ovulating or nearly ovulating?

Yes and no: Ovulation occurs usually within 36 hours of the first test turning positive. So, it doesn't matter how many turn positive, the first one counts. Depending on the test, I'm not sure what "nearly positive' means, but the hormone that those tests check for does not gradually increase. It's a sudden spike. I'm guessing that you have already ovulated, and the first "nearly, " was positive. ...Read more

Experience pain during ovulation. Found out I have 3cm in diameter cyst. How is the ovulation pain and the cyst relate to one another.

Cysts are common: Some women consistently feel pain when they ovulate. Anytime you ovulate there is the possibility of forming a cyst. A 3cm cyst is really not concerning as long as it is "simple" meaning only fluid inside. They will just need to watch it over time to see if it gets bigger. A complex cyst (one that has structures inside), is more concerning and definitely needs to be followed by your doctor. ...Read more

I'm having ovulation pain. Could Clomid (clomiphene) be the cause?

I'm having ovulation pain. Could Clomid (clomiphene) be the cause?

Yes: Clomiphene is a stimulant to the ovaries. It raises the FSH levels and triggers development of follicles. The ovaries enlarge as the follicle develops. Some women produce a large number of folicles, adding to the stretching sensation. Most of the time these symptoms are minimal, but on occasion can be quite uncomfortable. Almost always the symptoms are short-lived. ...Read more
