    Default Painful uterus around O time

    Just wondering if anyone can answer this for me. I've not had much luck with OPK's, but I know that around ovulation time my uterus gets really painful and tender for about 3 days. Does anyone know if O would occur before the pain starts or would the pain be starting before O occurs? We are still trying every second day around this time anyway but I'm just interested to know. I'm assuming the pain is contractions helping the cervix to open or something along those lines? I've tried researching it online but all I can find is information about the ovary pain associated with ovulation and nothing at all about painful uterus.

    Anyone have much experience with this?

    The pain is worse than when I have my af!

    I usually get my pain the day before and the day of my Clear Blue Fertility Monitor changing to "peak" fertility. So I would say I O the day the pain is the worst and it survives for the day after. That's just a guess, though!

    I do OPKS and got a VERY positive on day 17 which means I ovulate within 12-48 hours. Yesterday (CD18) I started getting awful cramps, and stabbing pains on my right side. Today (CD19) I still had the stabbing pains and decided to take myself to the hospital and I had a temp and was feeling yuck just wanted to rule out appendicitis. They ended up doing a scan and tahdah there is a corpus luteum in my right ovary. So my doctor believes I ovulated yesterday as my endometrium lining was thicker than before you ovulate. So I.e OPK = 12 hours pre ovulation, Cramping = at Ovulation and stabbing pain = after ovulation
    That's just me but yay!

    That's awesome that you got to confirm ovulation :-) I only usually get a quick stabbing pain in my ovary, but uterus pain is quite severe. Thanks for your response :-)

    To be honest, the first month off the pill I got loads of ewcm and a massive amount of pain in my right ovary, pretty positive signs of Pauline, but since then I haven't had enough ewcm to really be noticeable. I still maintain I was much more fertile as soon as I came off the pill, Unfortunately we weren't TTC then though. I have noticed my last 2 cycles since I've actually tried feeling my cervix position that it does open up right around the time I get the uterus cramping. I've been a bit worried about it (the pain I mean) and wasn't sure if it was worth a trip to the doctor's or not.
