Have any of you ever experienced implantation pain? (I've been reading about it online and, so far, have gotten mixed reviews as to whether it is even possible to actually FEEL...I'm also trying not to get my hopes up!)
Anyway, I was just in bed reading (after taking a bath, if that matters) when all of a sudden I started experiencing this VERY sharp pain in my lower abdomen (right above my girl parts). It comes and goes...but has been happening for the past 2-3 minutes. It feels like a scalding knife is inside of me and right before I have a chance to physically react to the pain, it's gone. I experience ovulation pain pretty regularly, but it's nothing like this- that usually lasts about a second and it's not painful, just noticeable and feels a little bit higher up than this does. And it's nothing like my regular, dull achy menstrual cramps...
I'm assuming the pain is related to me coming off of birth control...or it could be nothing at all I suppose! Anyway, if my cycle stays the same as it was on birth control, I should be ovulating in about 5-6 days.
Thanks for all of the comments/advice! My doctor suggested that I may ovulate prior to my "reguarly scheduled" ovulation date after going off of birth control, so that was the only reason I even thought implantation pain MAY have occurred. We weren't really planning on using OPKs since we're already planning on having sex every day and perhaps sex twice per day during my "regularly scheduled" ovulation...so we/my doctor didn't really see the need? Also, since I have a suspected case of PCOS, I thought that I wouldn't be able to use OPKs since it would always show that I was in a constant state of ovulation? Anyway, thanks again guys!
