What Does Ovulating Feel Like?

Can you feel when you are ovulating?

It’s possible to feel yourself ovulate, but many women don’t notice it. You might notice a slight pain in your side about halfway through your menstrual cycle. But if you’re trying to get pregnant, don’t wait for the twinge.

What are the symptoms when a woman is ovulating?

Mittelschmerz Pain (Ovulation Pain)

Some women get ovulation pain every month. Research has found that mid-cycle pain (also known as mittelschmerz, German for “middle pain”) occurs just before you ovulate, which would be when you’re most fertile. For most, ovulation pain is a temporary sharp pain in the lower abdomen.

How do you confirm ovulation?

There are several ways to detect ovulation, including urine test kits to measure LH levels, transvaginal ultrasound, endometrial biopsy, blood tests to measure hormone levels, and the basal body temperature (BBT) chart.
