Yes, possible: It is possible to ovulate on one side and have the opposite tube pick up that egg and for you to conceive. Location of pain however is not an accurate way to be certain of which side you ovulated from. Pain can be from other things like cyst formation, endometriosis, etc. Also, pain in early pregnancy can be a sign of an abnormal location (ectopic pregnancy). Check a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Ovulated friday, today is tues. From monday experiencing dull pain on right abdomen and the back side on right. Post-ovulation pain? No discharge etc.

Not sure but: Honestly I don't know, but, if you did in fact ovulate there will be a small amount of blood that is released. This can cause some peritoneal irritation inside your abdomen and sometimes this can cause referred pain in the back. If it gets worse, see a doctor. ...Read more

Is ovulation pain on the pill possible? Getting discomfort (not exactly pain) around the pelvic area on my left side in the middle of my cycle.

Yes: Occasionally with the very low dose hormonal birth control pills these days a breakthrough ovulation can potentially occur. Usually thr endometrial lining isn't supportive for a conception though. Make sure you take the birth control pill almost at the same time each day and some antibiotics may decrease the efficacy of the oral contraceptive pill. ...Read more

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
