Lower Abodominal 8-10 days before menstration

Hi There

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 6 months now with no luck. The thing that bugs me is that I get a really bad pain im my lower abdoment (middle part) usually 8-10 days before I get my period. I think 8 days is too short if I was ovulating. Now, usually my period cycle is upto 28 days. So this means that I will ovulate around about the 14th day. I'm not sure if the pain is due to me ovulating or it just the lining trying to shed. The pain is really bad but my doctor told me to just take panadol. Has anyone else have this problem.

Could someone reply please if they are able to help me...

in addition to the above..my pain lasts for 30 mins to an hour. the pain usually is in the middle of the night..and id wake up with really bad pain...then as soon as i wee the pain usually subside...i dont know what it is..

I have similar situation. But mine is not sharp pain, is dull kind, but is constantly there from 5dpo-7dpo almost every month. Now what I am thinking is, would that because progestron peak 5dpo-9dpo cause more blood flow to uterus and the lining also peakly thickened during that time. But that just my guess after giving a lot of thingking. I have an appointment with infertility doctor next month, I will ask him then.

I was having those pains and my doctor told me that I needed to take half of the dose that I am currently taking because when it hurts really bad like that the ovaries are over stimulating which can cause no ovulation

We have been trying off and on for about the same amount of time. I usually get the same pain you get about 14 days before my period. I usually take a warm bath and that dulls the pain.
