How can I relieve the ovulation pain?

by Fiona
(London, ON)

I suffer from ovulation pain. I feel a twinge or a sharp pain on my right side. Sometimes also on the left, but the right is more painful. It lasts for 1-2 days. I can feel it when I walk and I rather sit and not move. I like to apply pressure and also something warm. My doctor told me to take over the counter pain medication but I am trying to conceive and I do not want to take any necessary medication.

Is there a natural remedy that can help me ease the pain?




The first thing you should do is to take it easy and try to rest as much as possible. Make sure to be well hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids and at least 8 glasses of water a day. If the pain is severe and persistent or if you have bleeding accompanied with ovulation, you need to contact your doctor. A little spotting is OK, that is called ovulation bleeding.

There are some medical conditions that required immediate action and that are similar to ovulation pain. In these cases you may need emergency care:

Heavy bleeding
High Fever
High Heart Rate
Severe Pain
Diarrhea or constipation
Abdominal Pain
Shoulder Pain
Difficulty breathing

Homeopathic Remedies for Ovulation Pain

If your ovulation pain is mild you can consider learning more about homeopathic remedies.

Magnesia Phosphorica for pain that is sharp, better by pressure and warmth. This remedy works well when taken as a tissue salt 6X in warm water every 30 minutes to ease both menstrual and ovulation pain. For intense ovarian pain, it can be taken every hour in a 30CH or 200CH potency. It also helps to relieve severe menstrual cramps.

Colocynthis is for pain that makes you bend over double and is improved by hard pressure. The pain can be felt as a colic. The pain is very intense and felt more on the uterus as well.

Chamomilla for the woman that is irritable and hypersensitive to the pain. You almost want to cry out.

Belladonna for right side ovarian pain that makes face feel flushed but you hand and feet stay cold. The pain is sudden and intense, comes and goes quickly. This pain is often associated with right-sided ovarian cysts.

Apis for pain mostly on the right side that is stinging and burning. You also feel hot and prefer ice cold drinks and are not thirsty.

Arnica if you feel bruised and are better lying down and are worse from being touched and exertion.

For a more individualized prescription, consult with a qualified homeopath near you.

Self Fertility Massage For Ovulation Pain
by: Maria Gioia Atzori

Also doing self fertility massage may help decrease ovulation pain when done in conjunction with Castor oil therapy. This should only be performed after your period until ovulation if you are trying to conceive that month.

This type of massage increased blood flow to the ovaries and stimulates the break down of adhesions, scar tissue and toxins that cause pain.

I strongly recommend getting this self fertility massage DVD, that clearly illustrates what you need to do.
