    Default Cramps right AFTER ovulation

    I'm 23 and was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 17 due to VERY irregular periods. I've been on and off bc for the last 2 years trying to track whether or not I can ovulate naturally without clomid or anything, about a year ago I did it with the First Response opk and NOTHING for 8 months (also let it be known that in all of my tracking I NEVER got a positive)! I went back on bc up until last month. I got my period April 15th while on bc and haven't taken it since. My husband I would like ttc soon so I also started taking Lydia Pinkham around that time and started tracking ovulation with first response again. I stopped the pinkham after the first week and got a positive lh surge tue. afternoon! (tue. morning was neg.) I had sex on both Monday, Tue and Wed. and on Tue. I had some slight cramping, nothing major at all. Now on friday apprx. 3 days after ovulation I am having a lot of cramping. I already ovulated so I know it isn't ovulation cramps and it is too soon to be implantation cramps so I'm a little worried. It hurts a lot when I squat or sit, the pain isn't unbearable but it is more than just ov cramps, more like af cramps. Also, my nipples are so sensitive, it hurts to even put my bra on!

    Has anyone ever experienced this? I'm not sure if my body is just in overdrive because I haven't ovulated is so long or if it an early sign of possible pregnancy or something I should be concerned about.

    If it was this tuesday its wayyyy to early for implantion. IMO I would say its from Oing. Cause when I o'd if I did I had horrible cramps the day of and some for a few days later and then after the cramps stopped I became very sore. So it may just be soreness IMO

    Hope that helped some

    In my experience I had no pain during ovulation which I believe happened on Thursday April 30th (I had IUI this day) . But by Monday, just 4 days past ovulation, I began having cramps. I just had a feeling it was implantion cramps (much like af cramps but way too soon for that) and low back pain. I knew 4 days seemed a little early but thats when it started. Turns out I am pregnant. So I think every person is different. In my case I feel like it was implantation. The only way to know is wait and take a pregnancy test. Ive never been pregnant and so I didnt know what that was supposed to feel like but I had a good hunch I might be the week before I ever tested. Good luck to you!!!

    I ovulated last month, the first that I had ever known about... and i had the same thing after O up until a couple days before AF. I was miserable for 2 weeks with horrible symptoms. If I hadn't known better I would have thought it was pregnancy but I knew that's not what it was.

    LJ-I usually get O cramps on and off from the day I ovulate until a couple days before my AF. I think everyone is different. But it could be a sign of pregnancy too-I hope it is for you. Baby Dust!

    i have the exact same symptoms as you have. FF indicates i O'd on Thursday CD18. 3 days later i'm having cramps and my nipples are so sensitive even now. I hope it's pg symptoms, but i don't want to get my hopes up...it can also be the Progesterone after ovulating...from what i heard from the other ladies on here. I'm still praying for a BFP though.

    They're probably nothing...I ALWAYS cramp from about 3DPO up until AF shows. Good luck.

    When I woke up yesterday (7dpo) the cramps were gone but around 6dpo I started to feel like I'm getting a cold or something. I'm getting a lot of hot flashes and at 7 dpo and today (8 dpo) I am so tired despite my 8 hours sleep at night AND 3 hour naps during the day, I think it is just a combination of early PMS and getting sick, well see!

    Are you on Clomid?

    My first month of ovulation I felt the exact same way. I really thought it was it because I was falling asleep on the couch at like 6pm and was getting major hot flashes all month. It really sucked. In my experience all Clomid and AF symptoms mimic pregnancy so I don't get my hopes up.

    With my last pregnancy I told the doctor that I thought I was just ovulating when I went in for a pap but I asked for a pg test anyways because it was quite a few weeks since I had my last period (which is normal for me). The nurse and doctor came in at the same time to tell me I was pregnant! Sadly the pregnancy ended in a m/c but I couldn't tell the difference between O'ing and pg. It kinda felt like a stitch in my side from what I remember. My fingers are crossed for you that this is your month.

    I'm not on clomid. I'm not on anything at all. I took Lydia Pinkham earlier in the month and it is my first month off of birth control but that is it. In the past where I came off bc I never ovulated so this is all very unusual for me!
