extemely bad cramps after ovulation?

Hey everyone,

So I had my last period on Oct 3rd-6th and ovulation was anywhere between Oct 16-21st. I did T T C with my hubby during possible ovulation time. about a day or two after ( Since Fri the 17th peaking yesterday the 20) I have had really bad cramps, nausea and I've been dizzy. Last night while at work my cramps were so bad I could feel them in my lower back and it hurt to walk and even to laugh.

Has anyone experienced this around or just after possible ovulation?

I have had this bad cramping in my last two pregnancies as well.

Thanks Ladies! :)

  • I'm not 100% but couldn't it also be implantation cramping?

  • I had them like that this month and it lasted a little longer than 12 hours. I thought mine was during ovulation, but I don't know. The pain hasn't been back since. It happened on the 14th.

  • for a update:

    I noticed last night some pink/brown spotting when I change my clothes. I am certain to believe that it may be implantation bleeding. however since my period is not due until Nov 3ish i don't want to test this early.
