Re: Painful ovulation and fertility.....
Sometimes I get horribly debilitating cramps when I'm ovulating. They can stop me in my tracks and take my breath away. It feels like someone is stabbing me with a knife. They are called Mittelschmerz and aren't uncommon. Just take pain killers, it's all you can do.
If it's on one side, that's the side where the egg is being released, so you are ovulating.
