  • I've ovulated in my period and other times a week or two later. Sometimes cramps can happen I think. Maybe there's a TTC dedicated group in CM?

  • I had my LH surge on CD 12 so from then till the 14th I ovulated. I usually get a twinge in my side when I ovulate and its quite an annoying pain. This cycle I got my twinge on CD 12 which is what reminded me to use my OPK. Sure enough it was positive. GL

  • Everyone ovulates at different times. Some can tell and others can not. Before having kids I never knew when I was. But after having kids I can tell when I ovulate. I get aweful cramps for a day or two.

  • Most women ovulate 14 days after the first day of their period. Some women cramp with ovulation - I personally get such God-awful cramps I'm out of commission for half a day - it's worse than my period cramps most of the time. I know which side I'm ovulating on every month, the cramps are different from left to right for me. Some women don't feel a thing when they ovulate.
