  • Could be a million things. Make an appt. to see your doc. My co-worker had similar pains, at least the way she described them was similar to yours and she had cervical cancer. Could be fibroids. Could be a million things. Good luck.

  • Sounds like ovulation pain-they call it "mittelschmertz". This is normal. One of your ovaries released an egg, when this happens, it can sometimes hurt. If your period is due on the 25th, this would be the end of your ovulation time -its normal to have this. Also, once you have ovulated, your egg starts to produce a lot of progesterone. This is responsible for thickening your uterus-either for a baby, or simply a period. This cramping can feel like its coming from ovaries sometimes. If it is an unbearable pain-go to doc. You could have a cyst.
