abdominal pain after stopping the pill


I have been on Melodene for the past 6 years after having an ovary removed due to a benign tumour. I have now stopped taking the pill in the hope of falling pregnant. I stopped menstruating on Fri 20 May. Since Thurs 26 May I have had lower abdominal aches. Please tell me what could be causing this? Is it ovulation? How long after your period has stopped do you start ovulating?
thanks for the great service

I dont know what's causing it, but i have the same problems. I have been to my gynea 2x and he can find nothing wrong. The pains are quite sharp or s'times just a low ache that moves down my legs. I also thought it might be ovulation but i experience these pains throughout the month. Depending on the length of your cycle it could be tho.
