When I ovulate i am very gassy and crampy. I have mid cycle pain also known as Middleschmerts (sp). I have to limit my activity at my time of ovulation or I will have severe pain . I have been told by the doctor that blood from the follicle can seep into the abdominal cavity and cause painful bruising. I had sex this morning and I am ovulating or about to ovulate. I have to pass gas or my stomach will become very painful and bloated. I push the semen out with the gas and when I keep trying to have a BM I continue to push out the semen. This gas passing and straining happens many times. I have IBS and when I ovulate it aggravates it. I guess there is nothing I can really do but wait and see what happens. Does anyone have anything to say about this? Does the sperm get inside the uterus right away? I am I losing all the sperm because the fluids are coming back out?
