    Default What does ovulation feel like?

    Hi there,

    Maybe a dumb question.... but im gonna ask it anyway.

    Ive been on the pill for a long time and i just wanted to know what ovulation feels like for you. Because my cycle was regulated by the pill, i truly have no idea when i ovulate.

    I have no idea when i ovulate and im on a 28 -30 day cycle generally.

    We are TTC and we are in our first month so im off the pill and im due (i think) to ovulate on Tuesday the 28th.

    I was just sitting here and i got a sharp pain in my right side, where i assume my ovary would be. It lasted for about a minute and that was it.

    So im wondering what ovulation feels like for you?

    Am i ovulating early?

    Thanks

    We used the billings method as contraception for years before ttc - and reversed it when trying to have a baby.

    I also "feel" ovualtion - and as I get into peri-menopause it really hurts!

    You should do some research on the Billings method - you need to look for changes in vaginal mucous (hope this isnt tmi). Basically after your period there is no mucous and then it starts and it is clear (like egg white) - and then one day it is cloudy - which means the day before you ovulated. This may sound criptic but if you take notice of the mucous over a couple of months it is quite easy to pick the change.

    good luck

    ok this might be tmi but im asking- is the mucous there when you wipe after weeing? I dont actually "see" any of that but this might have changed now im off the pill.

    It will usually be seen on toilet paper-though some people do not get alot and check internally with clean fingers.I think sometimes there is more after a bowel movement-though i'm not sure why.

    its vaginal discharge - guess thats the same area. if you poke about you will find it!

    here is the very first reference I found on google but there are heaps.

    I had a very regular period so it was easish for us - but it certainly worked as birth control for over 10 years.

    When we tried for DD it took over a year of trying. My GP told me "It will happen quickly, once you go off the pill!" Ha!

    Anyway fast forward 4 yrs later. I got smart and used an ovulation test from the supermarket or chemist. Basically works the same as a preg test. I did this for 2 months and I basically worked out what days I ovulated on. We conceived DS on the first try. I am not on a 28 day cycle, I am on 34days.

    Thanks guys.

    Charmer, was it a particular brand? I did a supermarket one yesterday and it was neg. So going to do it for next five days as i "think" im due to ovulate tomorrow- charting on a website says should be tomorrow with my cycle.

    Thanks!
