I was just wondering if was normal to have cramps during ovulation!

I have a pretty short cycle ( I get my period about every 24 days and it lasts for 9 days usually!) But about 11-14 days before my expected period I have some mild cramping. I was just wondering if this is normal and why it happens!

Thanks so much [Smile]

Hi Yellow3121,

Some folks do report having a slight pain in their abdomen around the time they ovulate, so that may be what's happening here. Have you been reliably charting your cycle and seeing that these pangs match up with ovulation?

Not reliably no haha I have just noticed that it always seems to be about right in the middle of my two periods!

Then odds are you're experiencing what those other folks reported (especially if it seems to come at regular intervals). Of course, if the cramps last more than a day or two or get worse, it's always a good plan to check in with a doctor.

Sounds good! Do you know of any reasons why this may be happening?

The people who report it usually refer to it as the egg being released from the ovary. However, it's generally accepted that these pains are still not a reliable signal that the egg has been released.
