Does your body feel weird when ovulating?

A twinge of pain
It’s possible to feel yourself ovulate, but many women don’t notice it. You might notice a slight pain in your side about halfway through your menstrual cycle. But if you’re trying to get pregnant, don’t wait for the twinge. That means your fertile window is soon closing.
Can ovulation make you feel moody?

What happens to a woman’s body during ovulation?
Ovulation usually happens between days 11 and 21 of your cycle. A hormone called luteinizing hormone (LH) surges, triggering the release of the egg that’s most ripe. At the same time, your cervical mucus becomes more slippery to help sperm make their way to the egg.
