I ovulated 4 days ago and now I have cramp like pain on the left side of my abdomen I am TTC could this be implantation pain??

Unlikely: implantation may cause some spotting, but it is unlikely for it to cause noticeable pain. The pain that you're having is more likely to be pain related to fluid from the ruptured follicle when it released an egg. That fluid can be irritating to your pelvis. the pain, as long as it is moderate, should go away on its own but if it worsens or persists longer than 48 hours, see a doctor. ...Read more

Trying to conceive.. I ovulated about a week ago, now i'm having bad cramping on the right side. Could this be implantation cramps?

Possible: Implantation generally occurs 6 1/2 to 7 days after ovulation and fertilization. Some women will increase implantation bleeding and/or some mild cramping; but if you do not have it, it does not mean you are not pregnant. Hope this helps. Good luck. ...Read more

No: A woman bleeding "thick clots" from her vagina doesn't have to consider "implantation" as a cause. However, she can check a urine pregnancy test if she could be pregnant, and of course, contact her doctor if her bleeding of thick clots persists or worries her a lot. Home urine pregnancy tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex, or 1 week after missing a period or having a "weird" period. ...Read more

After ovulation, when implatation, or fetilization occurs, does it make you feel cramps and make you feel like af is comming ?

No: Some women will feel when they ovulate, release an egg from the ovary. There can be no sensation at the time the sperm merges with the egg, fertilization, or when the early embryo implants in the uterus. What do you mean by af? I imagine not atrial fibrillation! ...Read more

Neither: That is likely a results of your hormones being low. And that may be related to your infertility. At some point soon if not already you will likely want a fertility evaluation to see why things have taken so long. ...Read more

Can I have implantation on the day i ovulate? Had active sex ovulated this morning n have cramping im no longer ovulating

Probably not: Implantation generally occurs 6 1/2 to 7 days after you ovulate and the egg is fertilized. Cramping, on the other hand, is common in many women at the time of ovulation. Sperm, however, live for about 3-4 days in the reproductive tract and sometimes up to 10 days. Hope this helps. ...Read more
