Is premenstrual pain caused by ovulation?

Last Update: 09/21/2022

Pre-menstrual pain does not always occur as a consequence of ovulation but may occur due to the imminent arrival of vaginal bleeding.

Ovulation occurs in the middle of the cycle, considering that the cycle begins with the onset of menstruation. Therefore, if ovulation pain is felt, it occurs between one period and the next. For this reason, many women consider ovulation discomfort as premenstrual discomfort. However, as we have mentioned, they are not the same.
