Yesterday I had SUPER bad cramps but my period isn't due until Dec.3rd. I typically have these cramps around this same time every month. Could this be me ovulating? Do woman typically cramp when ovulating?

  • Sounds like you are having cramps with ovulation. That's very common. I can always tell when I ovulate, and from which side. I get crampy for sure.

  • I get pains when I ovulate, not cramps, but I usually ovulate with both sides.

  • YES YES It's very common when most women ovulate they can cramp and even have some pain in the side for an example when you were a kid you would run and play most of the day right? well sometimes you would have to stop and rest because your side was hurting well alot of women have those same symptoms when ovulating I myself do and it can last anywhere from a couple hours or even all day it depends on your body every woman is differant.
