    Question What on earth is going on with my left ovary?

    For over a week now, my left ovary has felt like it's swelling.



    Like, really swelling.

    I'm on the pill (the mini pill I think - because I'm still BF a tiny bit) so I shouldn't be ovulating.

    So ... wtf?

    Is it painful? Maybe a cyst?

    Not painful, just feels swelly. No evident lump.

    It feels like your tummy feels when there's a baby rolling around, ITMS. Like it's stretching.

    You can still ovulate on mini-pill. Apparently it only stops ovulation in about 40 per cent of women.

    POPs may prevent pregnancy in several ways. They thicken the cervical mucus (the substance at the opening of the uterus), making it harder for sperm to reach and fertilize the egg. Like combined pills, they can prevent a woman's body from releasing an egg during her monthly menstrual cycle. However, ovulation may not be consistently suppressed on POPs. Five percent of women using POPs will have an unintended pregnancy within the first year of typical use. Perfect use rate is 0.5%. The chance of becoming pregnant increases with missed pills. While the overall risk of ectopic (tubal) pregnancy is lowered by this method, any pregnancy that does occur is more likely to be ectopic. Finally, POPs will not prevent functional ovarian cysts as well as the combination oral contraceptive.

    Ah. Thanks.

    So maybe it's just ovulation having a herdy-gerdy, on it's first shot back in town, as DS2 has almost finished weaning.
