    Default What does ovulation feel like for you?

    Just wondering how it feels for you?

    See I can always tell roughly when I am going to O - cycles are regular, b00bs get big, skin goes soft, hormones increase and I get a kinda mild crampy feeling for about 24hrs-ish.

    But during that 24hr I have been trying to pay more attention - and I noticed today I got this definate/almost painful PINCH/STAB right down there to one side. It lasted around 3-5seconds I would say and then it has kinda gone back to the crampy but maybe I little more 'stronger'.

    I was wondering if this was the actual egg popping out?? and if how long does it take to get into your falopian tube?

    Just wondering?

    I have to go through assisted technologies in order to ovulate, so I now know exactly what it feels like at every stage!

    For me I get an aching feeling on the side that is releasing eggs a few days before it releases. Around the time of ovulation I get sharp pains that sound like what you described. At ovulation time I also get this weird bloated heavy feeling at the bottom of my abdomen, and it kind of hurts to sit down hard or walk heavily.

    I had a scan today and the follicle was ready to go, so I got the trigger injection and am going back tomorrow for IUI. I would guess from that they are allowing 24 hours between release and prime 'egg travelling down tube' moment.

    For me its like a cross between wind pain and period pain. Definitely on one side and I am the same as pp that said a kind of heaviness almost when you sit down. Hard to explain it really. I usually only feel it on my left side every second month, not sure why though.

    Same here, as well as period type pain that comes and goes. I can also tell by the discharge.

    It's pretty cool knowing when I'm ovulating (always have done) - I've had many discussions with friends about it and they find it weird as they have no idea when they're ovulating. Have told them what signs to look out for and that if they really can't tell, then to take their temps etc but they don't get it lol.

    I could have asked the same Q. I have not been paying attention to any of it until this month
