Ovulation is in the middle of the menstrual cycle. Under the influence of the hormone FSH follicle begins to grow and change, then it breaks open and out comes the egg. She begins to move through the fallopian tube to the uterus, waiting for a meeting with sperm. If fertilization has not occurred, the reproductive cell dies. Most women do not feel the ovulation process, he passes quickly and painlessly and is expressed only in the change of basal temperature and consistency of vaginal secretions.
But some women can tell when they ovulate by the characteristic sensations. This is called the ovulatory syndrome, it is accompanied by one or more symptoms. It's a pain in the abdomen with one side or the other, depending on the ovary which matured the ovum. Pain can be of different nature: to be long or short, stabbing, or pulling.

If it is too strong and prolonged pain need to seek medical attention. In most cases, no pathology no pain during ovulation should not be alerted. It is because the uterus and fallopian tubes shrink when the liquid of the follicle flows out. But sometimes pain can occur because of gynecological diseases.
In addition, during ovulation some women experience some bleeding due to the fact that the vessels, the rupture of the follicle burst. The blood irritate the walls of the peritoneum, it can also be the cause of the pain.
