Signs when ovulating

Usually I get really horny like want to sex all day every day. I get cramps in my stomach. Usually that how I know I'm pregnant because the horny thing doesn't go away it stay until I get the positive.

Nausea during ovulation

It seems to be very rare to get nausea with ovulation but I do every month. The first time it happened I thought I was pregnant. I had been very overweight and hadn't had a normal period in years so the first time I ovulated my hormones went crazy. But here it is a year and a half later and I still get the same symptoms just about every month. I've tried to figure out if nausea is normal during ovulation but it doesn't seem to happen to very many women.

I had sharp pain on my ovaries with lots of discharge. My pain was awful. Doc told me I might have ovarian cyst. Getting ultra sound done.

Ovulation with PCOS

I have PCOS and found it difficult to predict ovulation. Predictor kits did not work for me. However fertile CM (clear egg white discharge) did. I only experienced this for 2 days and was sure I was ovulating. It worked for me:)

I know I ovulated this last time because I was focused on it. Its all about discharge. I finally had sort of a gush of clear sticky stringy fluid and had sex the next day. It worked! :) I am 37 and can't believe it is still that easy to conceive. Before I never paid attention but since my husband is works far away now, I have to focus.

Ovulation for a split uterus

Since my uterus is abnormal, I have abnormal ovulation. When I ovulate, I get a fever, mild cramps, and sore nipples.

ovulation kit or ovary pain

I did a ovulation kit and 4 2 days it was positive, I never saw my man then but 9 days later I had an pain on my right ovary that I get every month. So what I'm saying is I'm not sure if the kit was right or wrong but myself and my boyfriend had sex 3 days when I had the pain, so am not sure. I get the pain every month so when I do I always say I'm ovulating. Which is right the kit or my side pain, I'm very very confused.


I'm hungry when i ovulate and I also have that sticky white discharge. I get horny, my boobs become big and the nipples are tender. I also pee a lot when I ovulate.

Not Every Day

To those who are trying to get pregnant, I may have been misinformed, but I was told that if you have sex EVERYDAY it may lower your man's sperm count. I'm not sure how much time you should leave in between, but I thought this might be something for you all to ask your doctors about. Good luck to you!

Ovulation Signs

I'm not sure if I'm ovulating but around that time I always have a pain on my side, extra discharge and a huge increase in my sex drive. I don't know if this means I am ovulating, about to ovulate, or have already ovulated.
