What is ovulation pain telling you?

You may have been told or read that Ovulation pain or mittelschmerz (German for Middle Pain) is normal, maybe even that it is a good sign for fertility.  But actually it can be far from that.  It can in some case ne an indication of something that may actually be negatively affecting your fertility.

It could be a mild cramp, a dull ache, stabbing or even debilitating pain, which may last seconds, minutes or hours. 

If you are waiting for ovulation pain as a sign of ovulation , when trying to conceive, ttc, you may of course be leaving it too late.  The egg as we know lives for up to 24 hours and the sperm has to travel, so if waiting it could be too late.

But when we look at the pain itself, this may be due to factors other than ovulation alone, such as cysts, endometriosis, bacterial infection and more, or it may as I have seen with many of my clients show us that it may in fact also be an indicator of pelvic congestion, and/or inflammation.

When we work together one of our first progress indicators is the removal of ovulation pain and I talk about some such cases.
