The ovulation pain you experience can be dull, sudden, or sharp. It usually depends on which ovary is releasing the egg i.e, right-hand side or left-hand side. It sometimes remains just for 2-5 minutes or continues for the entire day. The ovulation bleeding flow is very light as compared to menstrual bleeding.
