Do you experience ovulation pain every month?

Mine is so severe, I feel like I have to go see a doctor. I can't move, and all I want to do is lay down and cry. I also have been dealing with brownish discharge for the week following my period. Has any one had similar experiences? Please HELP!

  • once in awhile I cramp for about an hour, but the only noticable sign of it that I have is clear discharge for a day

  • YES! I have the worst cramping ever that lasts for a couple hours. I do get a lot of clear discharge as well but only time I've had brownish discharge was after miscarriages or having babies.

  • Only when I ovulate on the right side. And it feels like a hard pinch and lasts for several minutes.

    If you are not trying to get pregnant, maybe you could go on a hormonal birth control that suppresses ovulation, to avoid the pain altogether.

    Good luck!

  • marine_wife0520.. how long after a m/c do you have the brown discharge? I had a m/c last September, & have had it since.

  • Ovulation pain, yes. But not every month.

  • Every other month, the great Mittelschmerz hits me when it is my left ovary.
