Understanding New and Severe Abdominal Pain

Ovulation (the release of an egg from your ovary) is a normal event that can cause pain on either side of the lower abdomen. If your menstrual cycles are timed to occur every 28 days, as is the case with most women, ovulation should occur about 14 days after the first day of bleeding from each period.

Is your pain occurring roughly two weeks from the date that your last period began?

Yes, this describes my situation.

No, this does not describe my symptoms.
