Is it possible for ovulation to mimick apendicitis?

Last night I was in so much pain that I was crying on the phone to my dad about wheither or not to go to the ER. My whole abdomenn was cramped up for about two hours, then it turned to just my right side, then just the bottom of my right side, but now it feels more like it is my uterus this morning. Also last night when I woke up to go to the bathroom it was more like the muscles at the opening of my vagina where cramped up.

Is that a normal thing?

Re: Is it possible for ovulation to mimick apendicitis?

Although I'm not in the medical profession, I have experienced your symptoms MANY times in the past. I am now 44 years old and have been on the pill for several years. However, when I was not taking the pill, I always had painful ovulation...since my teen years. Sometimes, it hurt so bad I couldn't sit down on those felt like something was stabbing my insides. Unfortunately, I do think this is "normal". When you ovulate, your ovary actually forms a small, temporary cyst-type bump where the egg is released. Once the egg is released, the cyst goes away. For some women, this cyst is larger and more painful. You might want to check with your Ob to make sure you don't have an ovarian cyst...I did actually have one of those when I was 20, but having it removed did nothing to stop the pain with ovulation. I now have a 15 year old daugher and she also have this type of pain, though not as bad as yours sounds. I hope this helps...and it's always a good idea to double-check with your doctor...good luck
