Query from: Katrena, Maryland, USA, 07/24/07
Topic: HEALTH      Submitted on: Ammas.com
Subject: What is the lower abdominal pain 2-3 days after ovulation?

I am having lower abdominal pain on my right side 3 days after I ovulated. Wondering if it's implantation (?), but CM is not as much as 3 days ago. Slight lower back pains also. What could this be?

This could be completely normal, and if you are trying to conceive, you may only be extra sensitive to it. Ovulation pain is very common, and the pain could be due to an emerging or ruptured follicle, both of which are normal and don't indicate pregnancy.

Implantation pain generally happens around 5-7 days after fertilisation. The pain is caused by the fertilised egg burrowing into the linning of the uterus. When this happens, chemical signals cause blood vessels to burst, so that the egg can dig into the layers and attach. It can cause some pain.

Normal ovulation pain includes:

Pain in the lower abdomen, just inside the hip bone.

The pain typically occurs about two weeks before the menstrual period is due.

The pain is felt on the right or left side, depending on which ovary is releasing an egg.

The pain may switch from one side to the other from one cycle to the next, or remain on one side for a few cycles.

The pain sensation varies between individuals - for example, it could feel like uncomfortable pressure, twinges, sharp pains or cramps.

The duration of pain ranges anywhere from minutes to 2-3 days.

Call your doctor if any of these symptoms appear.

The pain is different from what you may have experienced in the past.

You develop high fever with the pain.

The pain lasts longer than 3 days.

Nausea or vomiting occurs and the pain is on the right side. You may suspect appendicitis.

You start bleeding from the vagina.

You suspect you may be pregnant and any of these symptoms occur.

Ectopic pregnancy can mimic the pain of ovulation. An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that develops in the fallopian tube instead of the uterus. It could be a possibility if your last menstrual period was irregular or if you think you might be pregnant. If the pain persists longer than 3 days, please visit your doctor or the emergency room to get this checked out.

Since you seem to be trying to conceive, I'm hoping this is implantation pain!

Theories on possible causes The exact cause of ovulation pain is not clear, but theories include: Emerging follicle - hormones prompt the ovaries to produce around 20 follicles. Each follicle contains an immature egg (ovum) but only one follicle usually survives to maturity. It is supposed that ovulation pain is caused by the expanding follicle stretching the membrane of the ovary. Ruptured follicle - when the egg is mature, it bursts from the follicle. This may cause slight bleeding. The peritoneum (abdominal lining) could be irritated by the blood or fluids from the ruptured follicle, and this may trigger the pain. Underlying medical problems In most cases, ovulation pain is harmless. However, severe and prolonged ovulation pain, or other pains felt in the lower abdomen, can be symptomatic of various medical conditions including: Salpingitis - inflammation of the fallopian tubes following an infection. Chronic pelvic inflammatory disease - inflammation following an infection. Endometriosis - the lining of the womb (endometrium) grows in other locations, such as the bowel. Other symptoms include painful periods and painful sex. Ovarian cyst - an abnormal pocket of fluid that develops on the ovary. Ectopic pregnancy - a pregnancy that develops outside of the womb, most commonly in one of the fallopian tubes. Symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding. Seek urgent medical help. Appendicitis - inflammation of the appendix can sometimes be confused with ovulation pain. Seek urgent medical help if the pain is on the right side of your abdomen and you are experiencing nausea and vomiting. Other gastrointestinal problems - lower abdominal pain can be symptomatic of a range of gastrointestinal problems, including perforated ulcer, gastroenteritis and inflammatory bowel disease.

If conception occurred, implantation (when the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine wall) typically happens seven to ten days after ovulation, but it can happen a few days earlier or later as well. light spotting that happens for just a brief period of time around seven to ten days past ovulation. A second thermal shift that occurs around seven to ten days past ovulation. A dip in temperature that lasts just a single day, around seven to ten days past ovulation. While these signs may offer clues as to whether or not you have an increased probability of pregnancy, they are really not a reliable way to gauge whether or not you may be pregnant. You can experience any of these signs and be pregnant, or not pregnant, just as you can experience none of these signs and be pregnant or not pregnant. Keep this in mind when you are scrutinizing your chart while you wait to take a pregnancy test. While you can be cautiously optimistic if you do see these signs (if you have well-timed intercourse during your fertile time) there is no way to really know if you are pregnant before you can reliably test for pregnancy. Likewise, if you do not see these signs (and you have well-timed intercourse within your fertile time) you need not give up hope before the end of your cycle. Many women do not experience implantation signs or very early pregnancy signs at all After the fertilized egg begins to burrow into the lining of your uterus (which on average is about six days after being fertilized) you might notice a small amount of red spotting or pink or reddish brown staining. Home pregnancy tests are a common and easy way to determine whether you are, in fact, pregnant. These tests check for a certain hormone in your urine. This hormone is only present if you are pregnant, and so it is a good test. However, you should be aware that there are some limitations. It takes some time before the test can accurately detect a pregnancy. If you test yourself too early, then you could get negative ("Not Pregnant") result even though you really are. In general, kits will recommend testing the first day of your missed period.

Ovulatory pain at midcycle (day 14 or 15 after start of menses in a 28 day cycle) usually does not last longer than a day or two in most cases. It is thought to be due to some bleeding that takes place at the time that the egg is ovulated from the ovary. The bleeding is usually into the abdominal/pelvic cavity internally and irritates the lining to produce pain. Bleeding could be into the substance of the ovary at that time and cause pain however.

The cramps and heavy flow can represent endometriosis. There are two types. One affects the lining of the abdominal/pelvic cavity around the uterus and ovaries. This usually can be seen at laparoscopy, however sometimes it is missed if it is not the classic bluish/black appearing lesions. There are also red and clear looking lesions that really need to be biopsied to diagnose endometriosis. The second type of endometriosis is an internal type in which the endometrium grows down into the muscle of the uterus. It is called adenomyosis or endometriosis interna and it cannot be seen laparoscopically. It is usually diagnosed only at time of hysterectomy when the pathologist looks at the uterus microscopically.

Hello, Lower abdominal pain may not be due to implantation alone. It may be a part of ovulation itself. To if you have conceived or not, you need to wait till your due date of menstruation and check with a home preegnnacy kit. This way you can confirm it. All you need to do is to wait a few days more and have a check.

If it is not due to pregnancy, do consult with your doctor. More details at: http://www.wdxcyber.com/ppain.htm#p…

Best wishes.

It is normal for some. It may be implantation too. If your expecting pregnancy then wait for 10 more days after ovulation and take a pregnancy test. If it turns positive means you have conceived or else go to doctor.
