7 days past ovulation, why do I feel pressure on my left ovary and tender nipples is it too early to be pregnant? When should I take a pregnancy test

Hormones are high: A week after you ovulate, your Progesterone is peaking and your estrogen is also quite high. These can cause breast tenderness. The corpus luteum, the gland that is made where ovulation occurs, can be large and can cause ovarian pain. It's too early to detect pregnancy, and it's too early for your symptoms to be from pregnancy. Do a pregnancy test when you would normally start your period. ...Read more

Ovary tenderness, lasting over ovulation time. What could this be? 28years old worrying about tumours

Ovary tenderness, lasting over ovulation time. What could this be? 28years old worrying about tumours

Don't worry!: Ovary tenderness can be caused by many things-- like benign cysts, endometriosis, or ovulation. And ovarian cancer is usually painless. If the pain has lasted for more than a week, or if it's severe, or you have a fever, it's time for a visit to the doctor. Keep track of your symptoms and when they occur in relation to your periods. At your age, ovarian cancer is very unlikely! I hope that helps! ...Read more

Ovulation: Ovulation occurs consistently about 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. Using symptoms to predict can be very unreliable. ...Read more

HELP PLEASE! got my period this month, lasted 2 days and a week later i still have sore breasts and pain in my left ovary. ovulating? can't be pregs .

Sore Breasts: Sore breasts can have many causes other than pregnancy. Excessive caffeine and salt can both contribute to tenderness. Tenderness is also commonly experienced in the second half of the cycle due to progesterone. Pain in an ovary can be associated with ovulation or with a corpus luteum cyst that forms after ovulation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Normally when i ovulate one of my ovaries gets sore but this month i never felt the soreness from either of my ovaries does that mean i didn t ovulate?

Ovulation: Pain during ovulation is a subjective feeling. Normally, women don't have any symptoms when they ovulate. If you wanted to know whether you ovulated this month or not, you should have done an ovulation test. Now, you won't really know. Sometimes women who don't ovulate skip their period and go without one until the next month or when the lining grows too thick and just sheds in bleeding. ...Read more
