Ovualtion Pains

Ladies can I ask has anyone ever ovulated and had cramps and bad ovulation pains? As I have posted before I am taking vitex and **** quai  and I have never had ovulation pains this bad, i am sure I am ovulating my CM is stretchy and egg white looking so yes we have “got it on” …for a lack of better words. Is it okay to take Advil or something to relieve the pain, I feel full of gas also if that makes sense….

What is Vitex?
Other names: Vitex agnus castus, Agnus castus, chaste tree, monk's pepper

Vitex is a plant found in Asia and in Mediterranean countries. The part used medicinally is the dried fruit.

Why People Use Vitex
Vitex was used as a traditional folk remedy for a range of female conditions, such as post-partum hemorrhage and to help with the "passing of afterbirth". One of its alternate names, "chaste tree", comes from the historical belief that it can suppress libido.

Vitex does not actually contain hormones. It appears to increase progesterone by stimulating the release of a hormone called luteinizing hormone from the pituitary gland. Vitex is also thought to normalize excessive prolactin levels and promote fertility.

Female infertility

PMS, especially breast tenderness, cramping, and headaches

Acne, especially if it is related to the menstrual cycle

Fibrocystic breast disease

Heavy menstruation

Probably the safest thing to take is some Extra Strength Tylenol.  My dr doesn't want me taking Aleve at all, and I'm not sure about Advil, but I'm going to ask her tomorrow, since Tylenol does absolutely nothing for me.

I usually get pains about a week before I ovulate...or so.......they usually last a few hours...I would also try only tylenol.
