Painful Ovulation Medications
If a woman with midcycle pain is not already taking an anti-inflammatory medicine, the health care professional may advise her to take one of the over-the-counter pain relievers or prescribe an anti-inflammatory drug.
If mittelschmerz is severe and occurs every month, some forms of birth control may help. Birth control such as oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) that prevent ovulation from taking place can stop the pain from occurring. These are prescription medications and are prescribed by a doctor.
