I had cramps on my left side at day 11 then on day 14 I had sharp pains on my right side which day would I have ovulated please?

Imposible to say: It's impossible to say just based on the pains you describe. Sometimes a woman has pain on the opposite side that she ovulates on.... It's not always a very precise indicator of where ovulation occurred. The only way to really tell is by ultrasound to see where the follicle was where the egg was released from. ...Read more

6 days after ovulating had cramps on left side with pink tinge when wiping after urinuating and fleshy colored lumps (about 4 small) in toilet. Why?

6 days after ovulating had cramps on left side with pink tinge when wiping after urinuating and fleshy colored lumps (about 4 small) in toilet. Why?

Old Blood: Likely when you say ovulation I think your mistaking your menstrual period with ovulation. Ovulation is the release of an egg not a period. 2 weeks after ovulation women then have a menstrual period, which is the shedding of the uterus. The fleshy colored lumps were likely dried blood clots that you were still passing. Your OK. ...Read more

Miscarried 12-11-13 7wks. Could I be ovulating again? I have some mild cramping on my left side. How much time do I have? Its only been a few hours.

Probably not: If you just miscarried on dec 11 (and today being dec 21) it would be too soon to ovulate again. Depending on how far along you were when you miscarried, it can take up to 6 weeks to begin cycling again. The farther along you were, the longer it can take. ...Read more

I think I had ovulation cramps on one side, but it was a day after my period ended. Is that normal or even possible?

I think I had ovulation cramps on one side, but it was a day after my period ended. Is that normal or even possible?

Maybe: Ovulation occurs 2 weeks prior to your period. So, if you have 21 days between the first days of your cycles, you could ovulate on day 7. If you bleed for 6 days, then ovulation would be a day after you finish your period. A way to double check is keep a calendar of your cycles and the ovulation pain and see if you get your period 14 days after the ovulation pain. ...Read more
