Any advice would be appreciated:

In May 2018 i had a large cyst removed along with my left ovary (oophorectomy). My tubes remained.
Since then my periods are more stable and on time and shorter. which is good.

But im having sever ovulation pain (mittelschmerz).
I never had this pain before. It started after the surgery.

The question is: im getting the pain on the left side!
But there is No ovary there! They removed it.

So why am i getting ovulation pain on the side where theres no ovary?

I know pain can travel ..but every month for the past year??
Some ppl are saying its memory pain but that can be true because I never had this pain my entire life before surgery. So there is nothing the nerves would remember .

i read its a good indication of ovulation

any thoughts?
the pain lasts 1-2 days.

any advice would be appreciated.

I thought I could feel myself ovulate too but when I stimmed for IVF I was feeling all kinds of things in there that I would have interpreted as ovulation pain in a normal cycle, but am 100% sure were not ovulation because we retrieved 13 eggs, plus I was on clomiphene. It's much harder for your brain to interpret visceral than somatic pain. Maybe it's tubal? Could it be endometriosis? I don't know.
