I'm pretty sure Holly is right. Ovulation pain is usually the egg popping out of the ovary and the fluid irritates the surrounding tissue. At least that's how it was basically explained to me in the ER one night after suffering from Mittleschmerz all day and thinking I was dying. An egg "lives" for about 24 hours and sperm a few days longer. So I suppose it's possible if viable sperm was there waiting for the egg. And it's also possible if you DTD withing 24 hours of ovulation. That's why when you're TTC'ing they say to DTD for 3 days before and 1 day after ovulating.
