Ovulation cramps...so when did I ovulate?

I get these some times and I wonder dose that mean I just ovulated or dose it mean I am about too? I don't use the OPK so I just wondered what your experience is

  • Well I have used a kit and read about it bla bla bla.. For me when I am cramping I am ovulating or basically should do the deed then because I will within the day.. I get really thick at that time, so I would say do it up if you want a baby!

  • Ovulation pains can happen anywhere from a few days before ovulation to a few days after. It varies from woman to woman, though if you get them consistently, I think they usually happen at the same time relative to ovulation. The only way to know for yourself is to chart and find the pattern.

  • My start about 3 days before ovulation and intensify the day of ovulation. I chart so I know exactly when I ovulate.

    Charting is the only way to know for sure when you ovulate.

  • You are usually ovulating at least 2 weeks after your cycle. If you're trying to get pregnant, your most fertile day is exactly 2 weeks to the day your cycle ended.

  • Every single woman's cycle is different and you DO NOT always ovulate 2 weeks after your day one. You need to track your cycle for a couple months and/or use an OPK to know gor sure when you ovulate if you have unpredictable cycles.
