Aches behind the hip? Ovulation pain or something else?
Am currently on CD 25. i have a usual cycle of 28 days, but have been experienceing lower tummy pains (as if they were behind my hip) since CD 19. I also had a slight pain in the same area around day 14, but they normally disappear completly until just before AF.
Have been taking my temp every morning, i had a dip and then a sharp rise in temp around day 12 and then again at day 17.
Since day 17 my temp has stayed pretty much constantly high. The lower pains are a constant niggle at the moment. Is it something that i should be worried about or simply ovulation pain?
We have been TTC for 9 months and am getting a little confused of what i am doing wrong. What all the aches mean? I really want a baby, its something that i feel ready for. But just feel that there is something wrong.
The pain or ache you feel could be from ovulation. Sometimes the aches start as the ovary swells as the egg is about to be released. Then even after the eggie is released the ovaries can still ache from a cyst. They say it's VERY common to have cysts on your ovaries and most of them disappear on their own.
As far as your temps, maybe you should start using the ovulation tracker on this website so that we can see what your actual temp pattern looks like. Or do you use the fertilityfriend chart? Are you seeing a fertility specialist, using OPK's, staying away from sperm-killing lubricants, having sex every other day??
