Hi Ladies,

I get Mittelschmerz every month, however on this cycle I got the pain on both sides. I knew it was ovulation pain as I have it all the time and know how it feels.

I am not on any medication that would cause me to ovulate on both sides. I guess my question is, has this happened to anyone here and if so did it end up with twins.

Thanks for any advice.

I get ovulation pain when I release 2 eggs & it's always been from the same side. original.gif

Very possible you've released 2 eggs. HTH.

My fried was having ultrasound tracking one cycle and ovulated from both ovaries, she also regularly gets pain in both ovaries. ie pops out 2 eggs quite a lot.

On at least one occasion this has resulted in a multiple pregnancy (but sadly she misscarried).

Me on the other hand I have only ever have mittelschmerz on my right ovary (each cycle) and assume from this that I ovulate only from the right ovary??? I would love to find out if I have a dodgy left ovary.  huh.gif

Hi. I'm a little different in that I had ovulation induction to fall pregnant. They give you ultrasounds every few days to track the growth of the follicles, and when there is one big enough, you inject a drug to release the egg.

Well, I only had the one follicle big enough to release an egg, which was in my left ovary. I know I ovulated on a Tuesday (because of the injection), but on the Friday of that week, I had excruciating pain in my right ovary. I had never experienced this before, so I told the nurse at the fertility clinic.

Yep, you guessed it. I had popped out another egg on my right side, which resulted in my beautiful twin daughters. wub.gif

So I guess it is a possibility that you may have ovulated twice. Best of luck with falling pregnant!

I always get ovulation pain, but only on the side that I'm ovulating from.  In the month I conceived twins I didn't have a pain that I could pinpoint to a particular ovary, but more all over pain, it hurt to sit and the pain in the evening got so bad I required a hot water bottle and it hurt to DTD.

At at the time we didn't know it was 2 eggs releasing, even though my cycle was being tracked I had a dodgy right ovary that would tuck up and couldn't be seen clearly on ultrasound.

Millipede im the exact opposite from you, my pain is constantly on the left and only usually for 8 hours. Infact this pregnancy I have now, was from my left but because I lost my left fallopian tube I was able to track it being dragged across to my right tube. Bloody crippling!!

Im pretty sure Im having a singleton pregnancy going by my other pregnancies and births. But I am 40 and do feel ovulation and felt this month it was on both sides, even during the stretching you feel in pregnancy I feel both ovaries do the ache they do in pregnancy, it will be interesting but I am only expecting one baby here. I will see what our scan shows.lol.

I haven't conceived twins, but do get ovulation pain on both sides on a regular basis. It can be quite debilitating, and I usually have to retreat to bed to lie curled in the foetal position with a heatpack.

I don't normally get ovulation pain, however did get it whilst on chlomid, during the month that I conceived twins, I had ovulation pain on both sides, about 2-3 days apart.  I was tracking too, after the first ovulation I had my blood test, and my doc said he didn't think i'd ovulated yet... then I got another one on the other side... didn't click at the time that i could end up with twins, but we soon worked it out!

I never got really bad o pain, more like a little niggle, but definitely one side or the other.

My most recent conception, I was not using OPKs and was trying to be relaxed about the whole thing.  However, the weekend I expected to ovulate, i did have cramping that was more all over than usual (I ended up assuming it was my IBS playing up!).

I found out at my first scan that I am expecting twins, and there was a CL on each ovary.  I too am missing one tube, so my R tube did double duty for this one!
