Hi everyone I been ttc about a year Now have anyone had mittelschmerz before during or after ovulation mines happens during ovulation and its a sharp pain on the left side of the ovary and sometimes the right it does this every month. I want to know should I have intercourse before ovulation or during please help me. God bless all of you
Just before. If you wait until you feel the mittelschmerz, it is usually a little too late. It's the pain caused by the fluid filling the follicle after the egg leaves, I think, and not by the egg erupting out of the ovary.
It's a useful signal. Keep a chart of when the first day of your period is, and then when you feel it, and whether it is right side or left. After several cycles of this, you should have a good sense of roughly when you ovulate and how regular you are.
If you don't want to have to bother with any of that, just begin having sex the day your period ends and go every third day after that until the beginning of the next period. That will keep you covered with lots of sperm. Every day is too often.
