    PMS Symptoms While Ovulating?

    I know I am ovulating. But, with it I have cramping, and bloating.

    Am I just a weird one here or do others have this too? Or, is this a pcoser's ovulating experience?

    I do not have PCOS.

    I DO have cramping & bloating. According to TCYOF, cramping pre-o can be due to the follie swelling & getting ready to pop. During o, a sharp stabbing pain lasting a few minutes can be the egg releasing. Cramping post-o (my type) can be severe & is caused by irritation of surrounding tissues.. from the follicular fluid that is released with the egg. This is what causes bloating as well. Mine is sometimes worse than AF-pain & I have endo. I get horrible cramping both times. It doubles me over for a min. of 10 hours each o.

    I get Middleschmertz; which is pain during ovulation. I ALWAYS know when I ovulate and from which side, as the pain is very localized. It can actually be quite painful. I often have to take Aleve. It usually lasts around 12-24 hours. But I know that I am lucky, because most women do NOT know when they ovulate and I can always tell when that crampy feeling starts coming on.

    I also get very moody around ovulation. Not so moody with AF, but definitely with O. My patience is thinner, and I am definitely quick-tempered. I also tend to break out with O, but my skin clears up by the time AF rolls around. Definitely have it backwards here, LOL!

    ETA: Didn't answer your question fully. I do not have PCOS. Our dx is purely male factor.

    Interesting. I also get PMS symtoms when I ovulate. I THINK mine is after I ovulate. I don't get cramps but I get bloated, depressed, crave sugar, feel tired........lasts for a couple days. Goes away for a few days then back again for my 7+ days of PMS. STINKS!
