See your doctor if your ovulation pain lasts longer than three days or is associated with other unusual menstrual symptoms, such as heavy bleeding. Ovulation pain is also known as mid-cycle pain and mittelschmerz (German for ‘middle pain’).

It happens about 14 days before your period, when an ovary releases an egg as part of the menstrual cycle. It’s also known as mittelschmerz (German for “middle pain” or “pain in the middle of the month”). Ovulation pain is often normal and just another side effect linked with periods.
Why is my ovulation pain so bad?
During ovulation, the ovary releases the egg and fluid, along with some blood. Mittelschmerz may happen because of the egg enlarging in the ovary just before ovulation. The pain may also be due to a ruptured follicle. The egg bursts from the follicle when it’s ready.
