This cycle has been really weird...
CD19: +OPK but no temp rise so I didnt O then
CD27 and 28: +OPK and waiting for definite temp shift now
CD30 (yesterday): I had sharp pain on the right side at 2 different times.  The pain didnt last very long and wasnt cramping, more like a stabbing pain.  Could this be O pain or is it too long after the +OPK?

So my questions are:
What does your O pain feel like?
Does it happen before, during or after O?

A link to my chart is below.
Usually I have long cycles (35-45 days).  I normally O the day after a +OPK and my temp rises the day after O and stays up till AF.  I have never had 2 +OPKs a week apart in one cycle and havent noticed O pain before.

My pain is similar to what you described... more of a stabbing pain than a cramp but I do get slight cramps on and off also but nothing like AF cramps...

I will usually get them during Ovulation

I asked some similar questions to yours, I was told no one here will know. Apparently it can be at any time before during or after. Sorry not much help sad.gif

My o pain is similar to af but more painful and heaven. Major cramps sometime, which I have needed strong pain medication for. Only happened a few times.
Generally I get o pains around the day of o and for anywhere from 1-4 days alters. The most painful is right at o, it kind of drops to a better level of pain lol.

I do get a stabbing pain, on bad cycles it can last a few hrs on and off. Mostly it just lasts a few mins.

Since everyone is different you just need to get to know your cycle and it will then become hard to ignore the signs lol.
I took a break from temping this month and there was no way I could ignore the o cramps, stopped me in my tracks whilst shopping at masters   sad.gif
