Ever since having dd3, I have been getting terrible pain at ovulation. Since having dd4, its at a point now I am in excruciating pain and pretty much bed ridden for most of the day. Pain killers and hot showers take the edge off but it still has me in tears. I can't take anything stronger (panadine fort etc) because it knocks me out. Honestly, i would rather painful contractions over this pain!! My af is not painful at all, a little uncomfortable occasionally but not painful (oddly enough, it used to be what left me bed ridden and I had no pain around ovulation).
Is it worth seeing my gp? Is there anything they can do other than tell me to take pain killers?
ETA- I put this here as we aren't ttc so didnt feel it belonged in that section.

For me it's deep gnawing 'metallic ' pain on the side of which ovary is ovulating but I find it more severe on my right side , and I get a migraine normally to that announces itself with vision problems

I used to get this but don't anymore. I went to a naturopath and took heaps of vitamins and it went away after 2-3 cycles. Not sure if it was a coincidence. I was told that when the follicle bursts to release the egg, it has fluid in it which can irritate the abdomen so changing the alkalinity of your body can effect how that fluid feels against your insides. I'm not sure I believe it but it did seem to fix my problem. I used to have to go home from work it was so bad 😫

Op I am the same. Periods not painful but ovulation kills! I also bloat and sitting up can hurt. I just got diagnosed with endo stage 1 so I wonder if that has something to do with it.. Sorry I cant answer for sure but do go to your doc just incase there is an issue

I take the pill, it's the only thing that has worked for me.

I am too useless to take the pill, plus I HATE being on contraception, it messes with me too much. Sigh. I might have a chat with my dr and see what he says.
