Is it odd to get ovulation symptoms a few days before ovulating?

Is it odd to get ovulation symptoms a few days before ovulating?

Depends: Days prior to ovulation one can find clear thin cervical mucus, bloating, and cramping. Usually the act of ovulation may not produce any type of discomfort at all. Some may feel slight cramping with ovulation due to the release of follicular fluid
or a small amount of blood from the surface of the ovary. ...Read more

I haven't been ovulating for 3months all of a sudden I feel ovulation symptoms, what could have possibly changed in my body?

Ovulation: It is not uncommon for a patient who does not ovulate regularly and may frequently skip several periods to spontaneously ovulate on her own without medication. Some patients with ovulation dysfunction have periods every 5 to 6 weeks, and some have periods only once or twice a year or even less frequently. The frequency of ovulation in a particular patient can also vary with weight gain or loss. ...Read more

I took an ovulation test because it felt like ovulation symptoms but the test came out negative. Any ideas?

I have been on cryselle for almost a year. For the last two months I have had ovulation symptoms. Should I be concerned?

Not likely ovulating: With the pill, it's unlikely you are ovulating. If, by chance, you are, the pill does other things to reduce fertility, like thicken cervical mucus and thin the endometrial lining to prevent implantation. If you are concerned, however, you need to talk to your GYN. Maybe a different pill would work better. ...Read more

14 days before: Ovulation occurs 14 days before your next menstrual cycle. If you had a menstrual cycle every 21 days then yes you would be ovulating on day 7.

I charted my ovulation and I've had ovulation symptoms these past few days. Now I have a sharp pain on my right side. Do cysts form after ovulation?

I charted my ovulation and I've had ovulation symptoms these past few days. Now I have a sharp pain on my right side. Do cysts form after ovulation?

Yes: Ovarian cyst form in women of childbearing age as a result of ovulation. Most are normal and disappear after a few weeks. However some persists and even grow. Some can rupture. There is a condition called "mittelschmerz" that occurs around ovulation as a result of growth and release of the egg. It can cause abdominal cramping than might last a couple of hours. One in five women experience this. ...Read more

Can you still experience ovulation discharge while on the pill or any of the ovulation symptoms while on the pill?

Not usually: The hormones in the pill usually prevent the ovulating cervical mucus but they don't always block ovulation and the symptoms associated with a functional cyst and it's rupture at the time of ovulation can still occur. This is most likely with the triphasic pills and least likely with the ones with more active pills in the pack (24 vs. 21). Hope this helps. ...Read more

I took an ovulation test which came back negative but I am having ovulation symptoms-headache, vaginal discharge. Could I in fact be ovulating?

Tests are accurate: When in doubt, get hormone levels and thyroid function checked by your GYN. Please repeat the test. Headache and vaginal discharge are suggestive, not diagnostic of ovulation and may be coincidental. ...Read more

Can you ovulate with hCG still in your system? I had a d&c 2 weeks ago and now have ovulation symptoms. Can I conceive?

Yes: If you had a D&C for termination of a pregnancy, your HCG would be zero or close to it 2 weeks later. I imagine that if you were pregnant before, it was because you were not using adequate contraception. It is not true that following a pregnancy there is little or no chance of another pregnancy. You can conceive. Use condoms or other effective barrier protection, but get some birth control soon. ...Read more

I had surgery 2 weeks ago, I had 1ovary removed, endometriosis, a lot of scarred tissues, can't concieve without vitro is it poss to have ovulate symptoms?

Endo and Ovulation: Endometriosis does not stop ovulation. Most of your fertility is because of the scar tissue. Removing an ovary also means that you lost 50% of the eggs. That means your fertility potential is lower and probably earlier menopause. Get amh & FSH levels and see an ivf specialist soon to understand your options better. Delay could mean lower ivf success. Good luck. ...Read more

Never had ovulation symptoms before, normal period ~7-10of the month, end of the month spotting, implantation?

Never had ovulation symptoms before, normal period ~7-10of the month, end of the month spotting, implantation?

A person can't tell: Wait. A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more

How long does ovulation symptoms last? Missed my period by 5 days and negative at home preg test I've been cramping for 5 days could I be ovulatin late

If you continue to have irregular periods you should consider seeing a Gynecologist to discuss options for cycle regulation ...Read more
