Ovulation Pain VS. Implantation Pain?

Hi ladies! 2 questions:

1.) Can anyone describe for me the difference between an ovulation pain and an implantation pain? Or is there pain at implantation? I had a horrible, but brief pain on the 16th that doubled me over. It felt like a pinch or "catch", it was awful, but just for a second or two. I have had this feeling before,  but never thought to document anything until after my M/C on 10-31-06.

2.) can anyone tell me if it is possible to have implantation with no bleeding?

TTC.....and TTL (trying to learn) thanks so much all of you!

Hi! I have never been pregnant myself but i have read and heard from my gynac that implantation without bleeding is possible.Infact only a very small percentage of ladies bleed or spot during implantation.The majority do not have any bleeding.
   As for the pains,I am not too sure.I myself get sharp pains during ovulation but they are not that horrible....quite tolerable in my case.Even i am ttc and ttl.Good luck to you.

On the 17th of this month I had something similar. I was fine one minute walking down the road with a friend and the next minute I was lying in the fetal position on the sidewalk because the cramping hurt so bad, it only lasted a few minutes. I still don't know what it was so I have made an appointment with my doctor.

I always had pain during the moment of Ovulation. It was a brief, sharp pain on either my right or left side (depending on what ovary the egg popped out of! :-)
It lasted about 5 minutes in most cases, and was not unbearable...just unpleasant.

I had no implantation bleeding (as the poster above said...it's actually quite rare to have spotting...the majority of women DON'T, but there are the exceptions)

As for pain during implantation...I wouldn't know the difference between that and regular "pregnancy" pains. Most women feel crampy during the first few weeks of pegnancy anyway, so it would probably be hard to tell if any pain was due directly from implantation. But...that's just my opinion!

Good luck!

I actually had implantation pain before. It was so bad I just held my side and went to sleep on the couch. I woke up about 3 hours later. A few days later i got all the signs of being pregnant. My son is now 8mos!

well i have 2 children but every pregnancy is different i had a miscarrage (miscarriage) in february and my husband and i are trying again. i think i may be pregnant now because we had sex on the days that i was ovulating i suppose to have a period on the 6th of august but i don't think that i'll have one because at this moment that i'm typing this i have some pains in the abdomen area and but for the past 2 nights i been unable to lay on my stomach like i normally do because it feel like something is there. Also i have thrown up like last weekend 1 time and again this morning.I think i may be pregnant but not sure i have no breast tenderness, or none of that just feel sleepy all the time here lately. If you have anymore info that will be helpful in helping me then let me know. Also i took a pregnancy test today it was negative but i know i have been reading and it's been like wait until after your missed period is the best time to take it so i'll give it until the 7th and if i don't get my period on the 6th then i'll already know what it really is I'M PREGNANT. Thanks Yall Good Luck On The Ones Trying To Get Pregnant

January 13th 2000 I started my period, did a home pregnancy test Feb. 9th and found out i was pregnant. The signs i had in those 2 weeks before the test:
1.  a few seconds of sharp stabbing pain in the right lower side below where the ovary might be, in the pelic wall about 4 days after ovulation.  
2.  feeling pucky especially when hot
3.  flu like symptoms one day
4.  pressure, twinges and digging-in pain off and on that continued daily at the site of implantation.

(Other times i've had similar twinges and slight digging pains that weren't as strong but continued until i had a regular period. I heard only about 1 in 10 pregnancies result in a baby.)
I remember feeling pucky when riding in the car over speed bumps.
I had so many symptoms right away that it was quite obvious i was pregnant. I just didn't pay that much attention because of the other times i thought i was pregnant and had a period.

I am 28 years old and my husband and I have decided to have a baby.  I went off the pill and the first day of my last period was the 10th July 2010, meaning that I should have ovulated around the 23rd July or so.  It is my first month off the pill, so perhaps what I am feeling is my body re-adjusting, but about 6 days after ovulation I woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible pain in my lower abdomin (abdomen).  It only lasted a few minutes, but was horrible.  Could this be implantation pain or just ovulation pain?  I did spot a little before that??  My breasts, inparticular my nipples, are sensitive, which I have never had before, on or off the pill.  Could I be pregnant already??

I had the same thing happen to me last year. I had my period August 23, 2009 and stopped taking the pill once I got off it and I conceived around the beginning of September. So just wait until you get close to your next period and take a test. Good luck to you!!

Hey guys,

I was just reading this because i've been having the same symptoms!!

I came off my pill a month ago and worked out that i was ovulating around 15 days ago but me and my partner having been ttc since i came off the pill last month, having sex every night or 2.

For the past week my nipples have been so painful and unable to touch, also i've been experiencing alot of abdomonal pains for the past 4/5 days.
Other symptoms are feeling sick and gagging at the thought of minor things and also the smell of some things, mild back pains and head ache, general fatigue and just not being arsed to doing anything.

I'm one of the impatient ones and took loads of tests when we we first ttc- all negative like i expected.

My period is due in 2 days but i just can't wait!!!!!

What does everyone think??

I too am having the same symptoms. I keep feeling these sharp pains off and on all day today. I was wondering if it was implantation pains. It feels a lot like ovulating, but this is more like the middle, not on the side. I'm glad to see others having the same feelings. I've been another one of the impatient ones. I've already taken a few tests. None have been positive, but I'm not due for a period for 2 more days. I miscalculated the date my period was due at first so I didn't think I was so far ahead of myself taking tests. I'm waiting to see if I get my period Monday then taking another test Tuesday first thing if not. I wouldn't say I've had implantation spotting, but I did have one tiny spot earlier. I've had other pregnancy symptoms, I've had what could be the pregnancy congestion or allergies for a week. I've had some queasiness. I've had an increased appetite. I've also had some strange cravings. I wanted Ramen noodles. I usually only eat those if I absolutely have to & have to force myself to eat them. So I'm thinking these pains are from implantation.

Hi I'm soph ,
I had a dull period type pain for half hour on my ovulating day at 4pm saturday on my right side, then 7 days after sex at 4pm I had one sharp blast of pain on my right side as I stood up off the setee. This is my first month of trying for a baby , I have felt a lump in my throat sicky feeling like I want to swallow the sick feeling away , and also a dull ayke feeling like I'm about to start my period .
I have  25 day cycle and am ment to ovulate cyle day 14 but I actually ovulate cycle day 8 so dont always think your fitted into the average date  on these web calculaters.
I will take a preg test next wednesday which I think is 23rd May 2012.

Me and my fiancé are trying for a baby, and I am not sure whether or not I am. My ovulation day was the 26, and I have had nothing but dull aches and pains throughout the day. I know it is early to tell, but we have had intercourse both days before the O and the day of. Is there a possiblilty I could be pregnant?
