Ovulation pain?

Can someone explain to me the length, duration, intesity of ovualtion pain? Over the past few days, off and on I have a tinge on either side where my ovaries are. It's not excruciating but it's enough to get my attention.

Is it possible for the ovulation pain to alternate from one side to the other? Is it specifically sequestered to only one side?

I ovulated yesterday and I'm curious if this is what I've been waiting for. Any help would be awesome.

  • Yes the pain can swift to one ovary over to the next. I would say that ovulation sorta feels like your period. the time varies but it could be about a week. the intesity shouldn't be anything more then slight cramping. some other signs you your ovulating is egg white mixture from gential region. good luck!

  • it should only be a few days. Ovulation pain didn't start until a few monthes ago for me. (i'm 27) When i talked to my gyno about it, becuase i was kinda scared about the pain, she said it's just ovulation pain, and that it will go away in a few days. And yes, it switches sides. That's why we have two ovaries, to give the other a break once in a while.
