Is your ovulation pain you are referring to caused by cramps? I've heard/read a variety of woman's BC having helped reduce their cramps. I'm on Yasmin and my cramps are practically non-existant, especially not to the extent that I used to experience them. Now I have very mild discomfort that last for a couple seconds before it fades away. I get that one, maybe two days before/during my period, and very minimally throughout the day.
If your pain is caused by something other than cramps, then I suggest talking to your doctor. But generally most BC pills are suppose to reduce cramping.
