Is It Normal At The Age Of 27 When The Day Of Ovulation Feels Cramped And Slightly Painful Stomach?
Hello doctor, I want to ask, I am 27 years old, is it normal when Ovulation / Ovulation feels cramps in the stomach and a little pain?
Hello Rumi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Abdominal pain during ovulation is a very normal condition. This ovulation pain is also called mittelschmerz. Pain that is felt is usually mild pain on one side of the lower abdomen, can also be accompanied by the emergence of mild bleeding or spots from the vagina. Sometimes the pain can also be quite severe and disturbing. Mittelschmerz is not experienced by all women and does not have to occur every ovulation cycle.
The cause of mittelschmerz is not known with certainty, but it is thought that this pain is caused by enlarged follicles (egg sacs in the ovaries) that press against the ovary wall causing pain, and blood and fluid that comes out when the follicle ruptures causing mild inflammation in the inner lining of your stomach.
If your ovulation pain does interfere with your activity, you can take pain medications such as paracetamol. If the pain does not go away after the time of ovulation, you have a fever, nausea, vomiting, or other disturbing symptoms, you should consult a doctor so you can rule out other causes of lower abdominal pain such as appendicitis.
