It is usual for a woman to spend a few days with slight discomfort during ovulation, but she does not need treatment. However, if the pain is severe enough, the woman may be given a painkiller.
On other occasions, women opt for home remedies. Avoiding caffeine, placing hot water bottles on the painful area, or drinking herbal teas can help women cope better with painful ovulations.
Sometimes the doctor decides to prescribe some birth control pills to block ovulation, thus reducing the pain associated with ovulation.
