For the past two years, I have had issues with ovulation pain. It is really becoming annoying. It never felt like this before fertility treatment. I did bring it up at my last wellness visit, but my doctor felt that it was within normal limits. However, it starts between CDs 9 and 10. It is always on my left side (although I obviously do not ovualate only from my left). It starts with mild cramping and a dull ache. It ramps up by CDs 11 to 13 with a sharp pain. Sometimes, I have cramping off and on. I am thankful that it doesn't hurt worse, but it makes standing or exercising for long periods difficult. Does anyone know if ibuprofen would help? I haven't tried it because I figured it was not muscle pain or inflammation really. I just wish it would stop.
