How many days post ovulation should you get cramping? I o'd Friday or Saturday, not 100% sure, but I am still getting cramps. Feels like period cramps. It's not all day either, just in the evenings. Tonight, they actually hurt.?opionions? experience?

I was just wondering this today! I'm either 2 or 3dpo (I think 2 but FF says 3). Anyway, I've been getting cramping for the past couple of days. It's so weird, I don't know why I'm getting cramps. I don't remember getting this in previous cycles. I should look at past charts.

I read somewhere it could be from the uterine lining thickening or from the ovaries being sore. But I don't really know. Maybe someone else will have an explanation.

I sure hope someone can answer for both of us! Last cycle, I had some mild cramping until I o'd, then it stopped. I spotted that time, but not this time. This was my first cycle on clomid, so maybe that why? I don't know, but it hurts:(

i had it over the weekend, my cycle is screwy this time though, i got my pos opk on fri, and cramping sat sun...(still positive during cramping) . then 2 negative tests (mon and tues), now another positive test today. 5 dpo, usually once i get my first pos opk thats it I O within 24 hrs of that. no cramps though today. usually you get cramping right after you ovulate, i guess it could last a few days. yay for semi cycle buddies!

This cycle has been strange. I had o pains and I never get them AND I oed from my left ovarie I think bc that's where it was hurting. Now I'm 8dpo and tonight I've been having cramps like af but its too early!!! No other symptoms really. Just sore boobs. I've been trying to read why we cramp before af and the only thing I see is the progesterone preparing to she'd the lining. Ugh!!! Gl!
