painful ovulation
I suffer from very painful ovulation. It lasts about 2 or 3 days and feels worse than a period pain. Why is this? I am 42yrs old and need to know if this will go on for some years....

This is not typical for ovulation pain. If you have not had a recent gynae check-up, that might be a good idea. Sometimes if you have had infections, adhesions can form around the ovaries, and these can exacerbate the pain of ovulation.
