My husband and I are trying to conceive. I've been having pulling or cramping pain in my lower, left abdominal area. As low as my uterus. Is this normal? I think I usually experience this sort of pain when I'm ovulating but it's been going in for 5-6 days straight and on.

Welcome to e health forum.

Women have about five days during each cycle when they are fertile, the days before and up to ovulation. There are some common physical symptoms of ovulation including - increased body temperature, increased cervical mucus, change of position and firmness of cervix, abdominal cramps, increased libido and tenderness of breasts.

Hence your symptoms mentioned could most probably be due to ovulation, and there is no reason to be worried.

In case they appear to be immense and severe, taking adequate rest, application of heat bags or use of tylenol should be very helpful.

I hope this helps.
