Rojo Posted January 19, 2013 Share Posted January 19, 2013 I thought I'd share this, just in case there are any ladies out there who suffer from this particular problem I have had since the birth of my second child in 2007. I have always known when I ovulate. They symptoms in my body were very clear. After I had my youngest though, the pain became severe. I went to the doctor two or three times for exams, and also had a pelvic ultrasound last year, just to make sure it was just my ovulation causing the pain. And sure enough my insides were clear of pathology, so mittelschmerz it was. I know this may be TMI, but today I am ovulating and it does not hurt! Yeah, there's a little puffiness and a little bit of dull pressure, but I am devoid of the stabbing pain that ensues. Usually it is hard to sit down on my bum, the tissues inside are so swollen, painful, and tender. The discomfort, after the stabbing pain, usually lasts anywhere from 24 hours to two days. It is bothersome. I started my Whole30 on the first day of my menstrual cycle to observe any cycle differences this time around. I am well versed in the symptoms and times they occur. I am really thankful for this positive side effect. Link to comment
