BabyMed states that most women feel the pain around 10 days post ovulation, but some women can experience cramps as soon as five days post ovulation. Some light bleeding may accompany the cramps, BabyZone notes, and this is nothing to worry about as long as the bleeding remains light and the blood is pinkish or light brown in color.
