Brief Answer:
ovulation pain, called mittelschmertz

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query to hcm,
The mid cycle soreness of breast and often uterine cramping is usually associated with ovulation especially during ovulation time. This pain is also known as MITTELSCHMERTZ and can be accompanied with mild spotting per vaginum for 2-3 days. You may use hot fomentation for 15 min each twice a day to relieve with soreness of breast and lower abdominal pain or NSAIDS can be opted for. This is often a normal phenomenon in most women. So you need not worry.
