Painful ovulation
Hello doc,
I used to have quite a lot of pain when ovulating. Was admitted to hospital once for observation - they were'nt sure wether it was that or my appendix. None the less, I have been on the pill now for almost 4 years and I still experience pain when ovulating. (But I just read that one does not ovulate when on the pill.) Why then the pain?

It is true that you do not ovulate on the Pill. Your pain would therefore not be related to this and you will have to look for another cause for the pain.
