Hello Debra,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank you for seeking our help with your question.

When you ask if painblocks can be taken to relief pain associated with ovulation, do you mean nerve blocks or analgesics?

A nerve block is an anesthetic or anti-inflammatory injection targeted toward a certain nerve or group of nerves to treat pain. The purpose of the injection is to "turn off" a pain signal coming from a specific location in the body or to decrease inflammation in that area.

An analgesic or pain killer is a medication used to relieve pain. The most common over the counter analgesic is acetaminophen.

Depending on the severity of your ovulation pain and any allergies, an over the counter analgesic can be effective in pain relief.
