It's my first cycle off the pill, and I have a history of being very irregular after coming off the pill, so I really didn't know what was going to happen with my cycle. About 3 weeks in (several days ago), I started having abdominal pain, and over several hours it became very sharp and localized in my lower right pelvis--near my pelvic bone. The pain was so bad, I was doubled over. At one point, my daughter was climbing onto my lap, and she kneed me right in that spot, and the pain made me shout and crumple to the floor. At that point, my husband suggested I go to the doctor.
So, after one very embarrassing visit to the urgent care doctor and one urinalysis that showed no sign of infection, my doctor said it was likely ovulatory pain. He said the first ovulation off the pill can sometimes be very easy to sense and quite painful. I was sort of mortified to have made the visit to the doctor, but at least I can be pretty sure when I ovulated!
Anyone else have a very painful ovulation when they first went off the pill? I hope it doesn't mean I'm in for a horrid AF next week!
