Painful when ovulating?
I stopped using the pill almost 2 monts ago and trying to get pregnant. Nothing as yet but very painful around day 10 for a few days. Used to have the same problem as a teeager and the doctor said it was Mittelschmerz. Is it normal and why is ovulation painful?

It sounds normal. The egg is released with some fluid which can irritate the lining of the abdomen, hence the pain.
