Pain From Ovarian Cyst On Opposite Side

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Ovarian Cysts and Nonconventional nonsurgical treatment?
    I was diagnosed with somewhat large cysts on both ovaries this summer. One cyst is complex (which means it could be an endometrioma or a dermoid cyst) and the other looks like a large fluid or blood filled cyst but they don't know for sure. The doctors are recommending surgery but I don't want to try surgery as of yet. I am currently on birth control pills to help with cysts and I also am going to try some natural therapies from a licensed Naturopath. I have a question for you guys. Should I continue taking the birth control pills along with the herbal and Chinese medicines or should I stop the birth control pills and just take the natural remedies? I began the pill in late August and if actually feels as if one of my cyst has grown larger since then. I also have some breast tenderness. A lot of people say that birth control pills are "toxic" and if I'm going to do natural medicine, then I should just do that. What do you all think? Any advice would be much appreciated.
    I don't have any children.

      Homeopathic Medicines & Treatment for Ovarian Cysts, Ovary Pain Neuralgia, Ovaritis

      #Apis mellifica. [Apis]
      Few remedies cause as many ovarian symptoms as Apis. It has an active congestion of the right ovary going on to ovaritis, with soreness in the inguinal region, burning, stinging and tumefaction. Ovarian cysts in their incipiency have been arrested by this remedy; here one of the indicating features is numbness down the thigh. It has also proved useful in affections of the left ovary. Tightness of the chest may also be present, with the occurrence of a reflex cough and urging to urinate. Mercurius corrosivus. Hughes prefers this remedy in ovarian neuralgia. Peritoneal complications also indicate it. Bovista has also cured ovarian tumors.

      #Belladonna. [Bell]
      As this remedy is one particularly adapted to glandular growths it is especially useful in acute ovaritis, and more so if the peritoneum be involved. The pains are clutching and throbbing, worse on the right side, the slightest jar is painful, and the patient is extremely sensitive. The symptoms appear suddenly; flushed face and other Belladonna symptoms are present. Platinum. Ovaries sensitive, burning pains in them, bearing down, chronic ovarian irritation with sexual excitement. Much ovarian induration is present. Palladium. Swelling and induration of right ovary. It lacks the mental symptoms of Platinum, such as mental egotism and excitement. Aurum. Ovarian induration. Lilium. Ovarian neuralgias. Burning pains from ovary up into abdomen and down into thighs, shooting pains from left ovary across the pubes, or up to the mammary gland. Staphisagria. Very useful in ovarian irritation in nervous, irritable women. Hypochondriacal moods.

      #Lachesis. [Lach]
      Pain in left ovary relieved by a discharge from the uterus; can bear nothing heavy on region. Hughes and Guernsey seem to think that Lachesis acts even more prominently on the right ovary; others believe the opposite, the tendency of affections being, however, to move from the left toward the right side. Suppuration and chronic enlargements of ovary may call for Lachesis. Zincum. Boring in the left ovary relieved by the flow, somewhat better from pressure; fidgety feet. Graphites. Swelling and induration of the left ovary; also pains in the right ovarian region with delayed scanty menses. Argentum metallicum. Bruised pain in left ovary and sensation as if ovary were growing large. Naja. Violent crampy pain in left ovary. Dr. Hughes valued it in obscure ovarian pains not inflammatory in nature.

      #Arsenicum. [Ars]
      Burning tensive pains in the ovaries, especially in the right. Ovaritis relieved by hot applications. Patient thirsty, irritable and restless. Colocynth. Ovarian colic; griping pains, relieved by bending double; stitching pains deep in right ovarian region. It is also a useful remedy,according to Southwick, in ovaritis of left ovary with colicky pains. A dropsical condition may be present. Hamamelis. Ovaritis and ovarian neuralgia. Ludlam praises this remedy in the sub-acute form of gonorrhoeal ovaritis; it allays the pain and averts the menstrual derangement. Ovaritis after a blow. There is agonizing soreness all over the abdomen. An external application of hot extract of Hamamelis acts marvelously in subduing the distress and pain consequent to ovaritis. Iodine. Congestion or dropsy of the right ovary. Dwindling of the mammae; dull, pressing, wedge-like pain, extending from right ovary to uterus like a plug, worse during menstruation. Thuja. Left-sided ovaritis, with suspicion of veneral taint, calls for Thuja. Grumbling pains in the ovaries all the time, with mental irritability, call for Thuja. Podophyllum has a pain in the right ovary, running down the thigh of that side. Numbness may be an attending symptom.

  2. QUESTION:
    Natural Remedies for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome ?
    Please help - I have seen a number of doctors, naturopaths, you name it and they have not helped at all. Doctors only pump you with pills and naturopaths charge an absurd amount of money for visits and supplements which has left me broke.
    I've seen a few Herbalists as well and they were not experienced enough to help.
    I've been dealing with this for years and if anyone has any advice or can direct me to someone who has alot of experience with PCOS I would truly appreciate it !

  4. QUESTION:
    What does an ovarian cyst feel like?
    I had my iud removed on oct 1st. On the 22ed I believe I ovulated (from the LEFT side). The day after I started having a sore feeling in my lower stomach, near my RIGHT hip and also in my lower back. I know cyst can happen from ovulation but its on the opposite side. The pain is not crampy or sharp. It feels more sore, almost like something pulled. It hurts more during certain movements or bending down.
    My question is, what does a ovarian cyst actually feel like? Another question would be could I be pregnant seeing as my husband and I did have unprotected sex 3 and 2 days before ovulation... If so, It would only be 8 days past conception.
    Any serious advise would be appreciated

  7. QUESTION:
    How do you know if you have ovarian cysts?
    I get a slight pain on the right side of my lady parts where I think an ovary would be, then on the opposite left side. Sometimes it hurts really bad when I get/sit up. Could I have ovarian cysts? What are the symptoms?

    • ANSWER:
      Most often, cysts are ignored because they cause no symtoms...usually. When it hurts like that it's usually because a cyst has burst (broken open). It is extremely painful. The only way to know for sure is to have a sonogram done. To check for the cysts they usually have to do an internal and external sonogram. Yes, they do the sono from inside. It's not painful. Slightly annoying like a pap smear, but nothing extrordinary. Go see your doctor. It's the only way to know for sure.

  8. QUESTION:
    Functional Cyst vs Complex Cyst?
    In late August I had severe abdominal pain on my right side. I ended up going to the emergency room, only to get a male doctor who did all the blood work for an appendix and other severe abdominal issues, but told me to call my "woman" doctor and be seen within 72 hours. I went to my gynecologist who is on a military base, and she said she felt a cyst and thought she had ruptured it. She ordered a blood pregnancy test and an ultrasound. The ultrasound took place two weeks later on a Wednesday. I was told I would get the results back around Monday which I thought was a long time. I was still in pain and contacted my doctor informing her that I thought it was a long time to wait, she agreed and sent me off post to someone that would have quicker appointments for ultrasounds etc. I was called by the off care doctor's nurse with the results of my ultrasound performed on base and told it was a functional cyst and to come back for another ultrasound when my cycle started. I did, but the ultrasoundist at provider off base told me it was a complex cyst. She then reviewed the report from the radiologist on base and told me that he too had said it was complex. I told her I was told it was functional and she said it certainly was not. It is 1.5 cm, the same as noted on base solid mass. She told me the doctor would be calling me to schedule an appointment and discuss surgery. I didn't hear from the doctor so I called and spoke with the same nurse that had given me the first results. She told me AGAIN it was a functional cyst. I told her I was confused and told her two radiologist felt it was complex, and she told me that the doctor felt differently and she's the one who makes the final call. I spoke with my doctor on base who looked up the report and told me once again she agreed it was complex. She won't see me however since she sent me off base. I was able to FINALLY get an appointment with the provider off base who wants to give me birth control to shrink the cyst, even thought with a complex cyst it won't do anything for it. My appointment is this week and I'm very worried on how to approach her and ask her why she is saying it's the opposite than two radiologist have said it was. Also, the second radiologist thought it was a dermoid cyst. Is there anything I should ask them to perform like a CA- 125 blood test? A pap smear? It has now been three months, I'm still in pain and shouldn't have to be stressed on if my doctor is misdiagnosing me! Help!

    • ANSWER:
      I really feel for you, I also suffer from ovarian cysts and the pain can be unbearable. I was taken to hospital with one around 8 years ago and I was sent home after being told it was a kidney infection! I ended up in so much pain that my doctor organized an appointment with a gynecologist later that day and I was in surgery the next morning. As far as I am aware, a proper diagnosis cannot be given unless they perform exploratory surgery. It sounds as though you are not being taken seriously and my advice would be to get a second, or even a third opinion and keep going until you are happy with the outcome. After all, you are the one in pain and its your body so you have to stand up for yourself and get to the bottom of it.

  9. QUESTION:
    can you feel an ovarian cyst ?
    I'm a 17 year old female and I notice about a week before every period I get, I can feel a hard lump about the size of a marble on the back of my vaginal wall (opposite side of the g spot) there's no pain when touching it, it's just odd. I get these before EVERY period and then they go away. I'm on birth control to stop the cysts because I was diagnosed with a hemoragic one 3 months ago. is this an ovarian cyst or something else? isn't your colon behind your vagina, could it be a tumor? I'm scared.

    • ANSWER:
      No, it's an ovarian cyst

      Pain during bowel movements or pressure on your bowels
      Nausea, vomiting or breast tenderness similar to that experienced during pregnancy
      Fullness or heaviness in your abdomen
      Pressure on your rectum or bladder that causes a need to urinate more frequently or difficulty emptying your bladder completely."

      I can only descibe a "pinching" sensation during ovulation, so I have an idea what your talking about when you say "pulled".

      Sex just prior to and during ovulation gives a 20-25% chance of pregnancy per cycle. If your 8 days post ovulation you must be due a period around the 4-7th of November. Very best of luck if you get to test.

  11. QUESTION:
    Constant pain from endometriosis anyone?
    I've been going to the doctor and I've had a ct with contrast done trying to find what is causing my pain in my lower left pelvic area. The ct scan showed nothing. There is slight pain almost constantly, but around my period the pain gets so bad I can't sit still and my lower back feels like it is going to break. The severe pain is ONLY on the left side and in my back.. not in the middle or on the right. My mom and my sister both have endometriosis. My mom actually had it so severe that they did a complete hysterectomy on her when she was just 22 years old. I asked my doctor if she thought it could be endometriosis and she said no that I would only hurt during my period. I am getting a second opinion, but they can't get me in until November 20th. I do have to go back to my original OB in November as well for a re-colposcopy. I have CIN 1. I was just wondering if anyone else has endometriosis like this. I would just expect it to cause pain everywhere, but then again it could just in my left pelvic area, right? Just need some info from someone with experience. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you can definitely have constant pain with endometriosis. I had it for many years just at the time of my period, and then it got suddenly worse both during my period and with some pain all the time. The pain was principally on one side of my pelvis, and all my lower back. Bizarrely when they did a scan it showed the ovarian cyst and scars were actually on the opposite side, but apparently this happens sometimes.

      There's a family link, so I suggest you find a a different doc. They might be able to see cysts on an internal ultrasound scan, but earlier stages of endometriosis don't have cysts, so to see the scar tissue and lesions you would need a laporoscopy (operation sending in a camera, they often can do an op to remove the tissues at the same time).

      Hysterectomy is not the usual treatment this stage - first they will probably try putting you on the contraceptive pill constantly, then there are other options such as other hormone treatments, and an operation. If a doctor these days suggests a hysterectomy, go and get a second opinion, as this is quite an old fashioned view.

      In the meantime pain management: Your GP might be able to prescribe something like mefenamic acid, or voltarol, which can help especially if you start taking them a few days before you expect your period. The GP should also be able to prescribe some stronger narcotic painkillers. Avoid caffeine as it seems to make it much much worse (remember some painkillers contain caffeine). A TENS machine and hot water bottle also help.

  13. QUESTION:
    potential ovarian cancer?
    23 F here. For the past year I have had lower abdominal pelvic pain on my right side that sometimes radiated toward my right leg. In the past month the pain has gotten more frequent, occuring almost everyday, now on both sides and mainly in both legs. The feeling is a dull achey feeling and is getting more intense. I have also been burping quite a lot lately. They are the type of burps where I just feel full and make myself burp. I have recently read that these are all symptoms of ovarian cancer? I will be going to the doctor soon, so please dont give me any grief for not going. I had my reasons. I am really concerned this is cancer and have been a total mess!

    • ANSWER:
      Firstly - don't beat yourself up or worry - everything your body is capable of doing to itself, it is also capable of undoing.

      You symptoms could just as easily be a benign ovarian cyst, but you are right to have it checked out.

      With regard to cancer in general there are a few simple rules that can help both prevent it and beat it.

      Cancer is a healing process that has not stopped (usually because the body has run out of the necessary enzymes and can't make more as it is under-nourished). It always grows in an oxygen-deprived, acidic environment (which is why it changes the environment of the cells around it as it grows) and cannot survive in opposite conditions.

      Key steps to preventing it are to oxygenate your body through regular exercise and to regulate any acid/base imbalance by eating mostly foods that leave an alkaline residue in the body (rather than an acidic one). Alkaline tissues are automatically more oxygenated than acidic ones.

      One you oxygenate and alkalyse your tissues, cancer will have a hard time surviving and many research organizations are currently investigating these principles as a means of developing future treatments.

      Luckily you can help yourself just by eating correctly (try searching for "alkaline foods" on the net), drinking lots of fresh clean water and supplementing with highly bioavailable liquid vitamins and minerals plus pancreatic enzymes and vitamin B17 (laetrile or amygdalin).

      B17 has its critics but, contrary to the scare merchants (and the FDA, who can't make their normal fees from it) can do you no harm - the very fact that it is a vitamin means that it is a VITal AMINe - something your body can't make and has to have in the diet - good sources are apple sees and apricot kernels. If you don't like the taste, try grinding them up and adding to juice, smoothies etc.

      Stay positive and try reading the excellent book "cancer, why we're still dying to know the truth" by Phillip Day (www.credence.org)

  14. QUESTION:
    Experiencing a lot of pain during menstruation?
    I'm a 19 year old woman, I'm a virgin, and I masturbate semi-frequently.
    I used to have very normal PMS symptoms: fatigue, water retention, mood changes, some tenderness in my breasts and mild cramps.

    When I was 17 I experienced something new. On the first day of bleeding I also had a fever, unbearable cramps, nausea, back pain. But things went back to normal for a while. Now these occurrences are becoming both more frequent and more severe. During my last period my cramps were so severe that I was laying on my bed shaking, not even able to reach for my phone to text my mom for ibuprofen. I become so drained of energy and the fever and cramps get so bad that I also experience vomiting and diarrhea. This part of my period lasts only about six hours, but it is horrible, and I feel it's also really abnormal. I don't know if something is wrong with me.

    Some additional information...it's been two weeks since my last period and I'm still experiencing back pain and I'm also having a strange pain on the lower left side of my stomach, almost near my hip but more to the side. its the exact opposite of my appendix and strangely enough it's extactly opposite where i'm experiencing the pain in my back as well. This just started on the first day of my last period and I don't know why.

    I'm sorry this was so long but I'd really appreciate any information or advice that you could give me so that I know if what I'm experiencing is normal, what might be causing this, ways to make this less severe, etc. Thank you so much in advance (:

    Also, I'm planning on visiting a doctor, I would just like some input beforehand so I can be informed. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      The pain during menstruation could be due to ovarian cysts.

  15. QUESTION:
    pelvic pain, in ovary area..could this be ovarian cyst?
    -I got a severe stabbing pain in my lower LEFT pelvic area (maybe ovary?) that started during my period. The pain decreased as my period ended, and then there was no pain when it ended. This was not a normal menstrual cramp! It was also a lighter period that was a bright red color.

    -During ovulation I had a weird pain

    -My next period I first had a pain in my RIGHT lower pelvic area followed by crippling menstrual cramps. (opposite side than last time) The menstrual cramps were in my entire pelvic region just more intense than ever. I thought I was going to pass out or throw up. But after one day of my period, the cramps went away.

    -Every now and again I have a dull pain in my Right ovary area. I noticed a sharp pain there yesterday when I was on the elliptical and it went away when I stopped. I had to stop my workout early because I was afraid something bad would've happened if I continued.

    -I just feel more aware of my ovaries or something recently too.. it's very strange. I could have a std but I think that it is unlikely. So what do you think? possible std? cysts? something else??

    Any responses would be much appreciated.. thank you!

  16. QUESTION:
    Just found out i have hemm. ovarian cyst, im freaking out?
    So thursday night i was rushed to the ER in horrid pain and vomiting. And 7 later told i have a bleeding ovarian cyst (hemmerge cyst or something) and i need to be on bed rest and go back in 2 weeks to see if it's going away on its own or what. So today i was doing some internet searching and it all scares the hell out of me, the surgery if needed my make it hard to have babies im only 20 and that is so depressing. also, that certain birth controls can make you at risk for getting cyst. So, im thinking after i go back im going to get my IUD takein out so hopefully it doesnt make it worse or more you know? Im serioulsy scared and my mom and just keep telling me im fine blah blah but no advice really, and my husband just tell sme not to panic, but i am , any advice *PLEASE*

    • ANSWER:
      Your husband is correct don't freak take a deep breath and breath. Sometimes the treatment is birth control pills for ovarian cysts. Sometimes the heal on there own . Yes you do have a higher risk of problems with baby making than someone with no history of anything in the reproductive system but don't dis-pear. Talk to your follow up doctor about your concerns. If your just have to look up everything that could go bad, be productive and make a list ask your doctor. As for now remember that your hormones are friezing which is going to mess With your emotions (like that time of the month).
      As for the pain, secret I learned long ago is if you lay on the opposite side of the pain it helps. (it helps unloop the falopian tube from the weight of the cyst ) and ahhh pain releif.

    • ANSWER:
      Round Ligament Pain during Pregnancy

      Many women will experience a type of pain referred to as round ligament pain during their pregnancy. This is associated with abdominal pain or discomfort. Since any type of abdominal pain during pregnancy can be disconcerting, it is important to talk about round ligament pain to relieve any anxiety or fears you may have regarding the symptoms you are feeling. Round ligament pain is due to normal changes that take place in the body during pregnancy. It is caused by stretching of the round ligaments attached to the uterus. More commonly it occurs on the right side of the pelvis.

      Round Ligament: An Overview
      Typically in the non-pregnant state the uterus is about the size of an apple or pear. There are thick ligaments which hold the uterus in place in the abdomen, referred to as round ligaments.

      During pregnancy, your uterus will expand in size and weight, and the ligaments supporting it will have to stretch, becoming longer and thinner. As these ligaments pull and tug they may irritate nearby nerve fibers, which causes pain. The severity of the pain in some cases can seem extreme.

      Some common symptoms of round ligament pain include:

      Ligament spasms or contractions/cramps that trigger a sharp pain typically on the right side of the abdomen.

      Pain upon waking or suddenly rolling over in your sleep.

      Pain in the abdomen that is sharp brought on by exercise or other vigorous activity.

      Similar Problems
      Round ligament pain is often mistaken for other medical conditions because the symptoms are similar. Acute abdominal pain during pregnancy may also be a sign of other conditions including:

      Appendicitis - when the appendix become inflamed you may have appendicitis. This condition is most often characterized by nausea, vomiting, fever and worsening pain. You may also have little appetite. Typically this pain is felt higher in the abdomen then the pain associated with the round ligament.

      Ovarian Cysts - The ovaries sometimes contain cysts that may be painful. At other times an ovary may twist, causing severe abdominal pain.

      Abdominal cramps - Some abdominal pain is simply caused by change in bowel habits associated with pregnancy.
      You should always seek out medical care if your pain is accompanied by fever, chills, pain upon urination or if you have difficulty walking. Further exams and tests will be conducted to ensure that you do not have a more serious condition. It is not uncommon for women with lower abdominal pain to have a urinary tract infection, thus you may also be asked for a urine sample.

      Treatment
      If all other conditions are ruled out you can treat your round ligament pain relatively easily. You may be advised to take some acetaminophen (Tylenol) to reduce the severity of any persistent pain and asked to reduce your activity level. You can apply a heating pad to the area of pain or take a warm bath. Lying on the opposite side of the pain may help as well.

      Most women will find relief from round ligament pain simply by altering their daily routines slightly. The good news is round ligament pain will disappear completely once you have given birth to your child!

      What is round ligament pain?
      Round ligament pain generally refers to a brief, sharp, stabbing pain or a longer-lasting dull ache that pregnant women commonly feel in the lower abdomen or groin, starting in the second trimester.

      You may feel round ligament pain as a short jabbing sensation if you suddenly change position, such as when you're getting out of bed or out of a chair or when you cough, roll over in bed, or get out of the bathtub. You may feel it as a dull ache after a particularly active day when you've been walking a lot or doing some other physical activity.

      The round ligaments surround your uterus in your pelvis. As your uterus grows during pregnancy, the ligaments stretch and thicken to accommodate and support it. These changes can occasionally cause pain on one or both sides of your abdomen.

      You may feel the pain starting from deep inside your groin, moving upward and outward on either side to the top of your hips. The pain is internal, but if you were to trace it on your skin, it would follow the bikini line on a very high-cut bathing suit.

      When should I call my doctor or midwife?
      The sharp, jabbing type of round ligament pain shouldn't last longer than the few seconds in which you're changing position or getting up. Don't hesitate to call your caregiver any time abdominal aches or pains continue after a short rest or are accompanied by:

      Severe pain or cramping, or more than four contractions in an hour (even if they don't hurt)

      Low back pain, especially if you didn't previously have back pain, or an increase in pressure in the pelvic area (a feeling that your baby is pushing down)

      Bleeding, spotting, or a change in the type or amount of vaginal discharge

      Fever, chills, faintness, or na

    Ovarian cyst the first signs?
    Ovarian cyst the first signs?
    last year i had an ovarian cyst rupture i had no idea it was there and all of a sudden it hurt sooo bad. right now i dont know if that is what i am experianceing again. i am having this throbbing sharp pain in the left side of my pelvic area. i dont belive it is a bladder infection because it does not hurt to urinate. what are the begining signs of an ovarian cyst rupturing?
    it was so bad last year i could not move my husband( then boyfriend) had to pick me up and take me into the hospital where the dr thought i was in enough pain to give me morphine!!! they gave me no antibiotics though

    • ANSWER:
      That is exactly what happened to me! And a few weeks later I had a sharp pain in the opposite side right next to the area of where my ovarian cyst ruptured. Although, I didnt go to the doctors. I delt with the pain for a week and it went away. I say go to the doctors and get it checked out, the doctor will probably give you pennisilin for it.

  19. QUESTION:
    Ladies with ovarian cysts-What were your symptoms, and do mine sound normal?
    I have-some bloating, a dull ache in the lower left side of my back (dr. thinks cyst is on my left side) I have some pain when I urinate. I sometimes have a dull ache in my abdomen. I have pain on my lower left side, but it's not constant. More than anything, my stomach is upset. I go from being nauseaus to having gas pains-of course, that may be from my nerves!!
    I've seen my regular doctor, had blood tests to rule out other things. She is fairly confident that it is a cyst. I'm having an US on Wednesday.

    • ANSWER:
      Could be. Nothing will tell you for sure except an ultrasound. So this is nothing but speculation.

      For me, I had a very large cyst on my left side. It actually started as pain on the RIGHT. This was due to the cyst tugging at my reproductive organs, causing strain on the opposite side.

      Eventually, my left ovary began to twist and I had pain on both sides.

      The pain started as only before my period (which was unusual for me, as I never used to get cramps), and then gradually started happening more and more until it was constant.

      I also has very bad stomach cramps and nausea, exhaustion, and generally felt "not with it."

      Your symptoms sound like they're worth investigating. So, get them investigated.

  20. QUESTION:
    Ovarian cyst doubled in size in less than a month?
    I was having pain mid-cycle for a couple months and had an appt. where the doctor found a cyst. She referred me to get a transvaginal ultrasound, which I did. They found what appeared to be a complex cyst about 2 cm. Less than a month later, I had to get a CT scan for something totally separate from this issue. They called with the results and found the cyst, only it has now doubled in size. These doctors say it appears to be a simple cyst. My question is...do I need to worry since it has doubled in size in a month? I Have heard the ones that grow quickly tend to be benign, but I can't help but to worry. Also, one radiologist finds it is a complex cyst, while the other says its simple. I had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy where my left fallopian tube is partly taken out and this cyst is on my opposite side. If I get the cyst removed, will it hurt my chances of getting pregnant? Thank you for any help.
    The doctor wants me to get a follow-up ultrasound in 6 weeks. I am a bit worried as it has grown 2 cm in less than a month.

    • ANSWER:
      I hate to be the bringer of a bad story.

      I had an ovarian cyst that was found when I went in for a fertility exam. We had been trying for 4 years with no success. They found my left ovary had a cyst about the size of a walnut on it. I chose to have it removed. I went in for surgery 6 days later, and they removed the cyst. It was inside of my ovary and it had grown to the size of a football! They had to remove the entire ovary. After they removed the ovary, the fallopian tube kept collapsing, so they removed it also. I ended up getting pregnant 2 years later with my son. After my son was born, we tried for baby #2. I ended up with another cyst on the other ovary, and decided to tie my tube, and not try anymore. I also have endometriosis and a lot of polyps. I will hope and pray for the best for you, but you will definitely want to talk to your OBGYN for those questions to be answered.

      Good luck!

  21. QUESTION:
    Stomach pain and vomiting bile?
    Since midday I've been having a bit of a stomach ache, mostly around my mid-stomach area, and I've been terribly nauseous. I managed to eat a slice of pizza today, but other than that, I haven't had an appetite. At around 7pm I did vomit bile, and ever since then the pain in my stomach has been getting worse little by little.
    I've had ovarian cysts before and I have a sensitive bladder, but this pain isn't like what I've felt before because it almost feels like it's moving downwards to my right side.
    It's now midnight and I'm afraid to call the doctor on call because I don't want them to scare me into going into the ER if I really don't have to because I have class in the morning and I'd rather just stick it out if it's nothing bad.
    Could I be getting the flu or a virus of some sort?

    • ANSWER:
      Intestinal Blockage
      When a person is vomiting bile, it is pointing towards the fact that the intestine is blocked. There is some kind of obstruction in the intestine that is not allowing the food to enter through it. So the food, instead of moving from the stomach to the intestine, travels in the opposite direction and is finally vomited, along with the bile. The obstruction may be the result of twisting of the intestine. In other words, the structure of the intestine is distorted with too many turns and bends. This irregularity in the structure of the intestine could also be a birth defect. As a result, babies and children may frequently vomit bile due to inborn structural deformity of the intestine.

      Intestinal Obstruction Symptoms: Intestinal obstruction is typically marked by severe abdominal pain. Unlike, other inflammatory bowel diseases, where the pain is tolerable, in this case the discomfort is torturing that may subside, but is likely to come back. Abdominal pain is typically accompanied by frequent bouts of green vomiting. Most importantly, the person feels constipated and there is absence of bowel movement. Read more on vomiting after eating.

      Vomiting bile is a serious issue and requires urgent appointment with a doctor.

  22. QUESTION:
    What's the difference between Mittelschmerz and an Ovarian Cyst?

    • ANSWER:
      Ovarian cysts are small fluid-filled sacs that develop in a woman's ovaries. Most cysts are harmless, but some may cause problems such as rupturing, bleeding, or pain; and surgery may be required to remove the cyst(s). Ovarian cysts can be categorized as noncancerous or cancerous growths. While cysts may be found in ovarian cancer, ovarian cysts typically represent a harmless (benign) condition.

      Mittelschmerz is one-sided, lower abdominal pain that occurs in women at or around the time of an egg is released from the ovaries (ovulation). It is not caused by cysts, and no treatment is usually necessary. About 20% of women experience mittelschmerz, or pain associated with ovulation. (I'm one of them, lucky me... haha.) The pain may occur just before, during, or after ovulation. There are several explanations for the cause of this pain. Just prior to ovulation, follicle growth may stretch the surface of the ovary, causing pain. At the time of ovulation, fluid or blood is released from the ruptured egg follicle and may cause irritation of the abdominal lining. Mittelschmerz may be felt on one side one month, then switch to the opposite side the next month, or it may be felt on the same side for several months in succession.

      I hope that helped clear things up for you.

      If you think you might have one of these conditions, but you're still not sure which one you have, see your gynecologist so you can get checked out. If it turns out that you do have a cyst, it's best to get it looked at as soon as possible in order to determine whether or not you'll have to get it removed.

      Hope that helped! :)

  23. QUESTION:
    Lower left abdominal pain? its like a really dull aching or shooting pain.?
    It lasts for no longer than a minute at the most at times, and i only seem to get this pain when im sitting down or laying. Never standing up. I never get it at school, even when sitting? I've tried googling my symptoms but nothing quite fits. Its not a huge pain, just in comfortable, but i do tend to worry more than im supposed to. Im 14, and a girl.
    Also when i lay down, i noticed ages ago, but if i push on my lower left, from about my hip bone, and bit in, if i trace it upwards i can feel this long lump going right up to my side. I think its my intestines? but are they suppose to be felt like this? Is it normal to feel it when laying? I only ever get the pain in one place, and on occasion in my back, opposite the front pain, but again not a bad pain. I have no other symptoms, and im worrying so much about this. Im not sure wether to go to the doctors, or if im just over reacting? has anyone else felt this, or similar? Only left abdomen, and dull pain, nothing else. Is it something i should get seen? Please answer your opinions. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      I have this a lot and its very normal to have that pain, but if anything gets worse go to the doctors as it could be ovarian cyst which is not harmful as they go on their own, but should be removed if the pain is reallly bad. X

      Go to your gynecologist and they can do an ultrasound to tell how big the cyst is. Usually they go away on their own but if they are bothersome , they can be aspirated. Sometimes the doctor can prescribe birth control for the cysts to keep them from forming.

  26. QUESTION:
    Stomach pain, anyone have an idea?
    Ok, first of all I have seen doctors about this, and they are baffled, so I decided to ask and see if anyone had anything similar. This is kinda long too.

    It started about a year ago, I was getting really sharp pains in my stomach, its always in the same spot, about 4 inches to the right of my belly button. Sometimes the pain is so bad my back hurts in a spot directly opposite the pain in my stomach.

    I went to the ER last July and had many tests run, they checked for Ovarian Cysts, Gallbladder stones, Hernia, Appendix and even ulcers. Everything came back negative and I was discharged with undiagnosed abdominal pain. I saw a doctor and was told it was most likely an ulcer that didn't show up on the CT scan(peptic is what she said). So I took various medications over the next many months and had a very bland diet.

    The pain would still come and go though it wasn't to unbearable. After a year of taking the exprensive medication and not seeing a change I talked to my doctor and we decided to quit them. I was fine for 2 months. In the last two weeks the pain has come back, and its bad. Instead of only hurting when I exerted myself its every single day now. Without fail, in the early to late evening every day it starts to hurt, it gets progresivly worse until I go to bed, where lying down helps a bit but not much. The pain is gone by morning only to come back later that day. Sometimes it hurts after I eat, sometimes not. There seems to be little to no pattern and its driving me mad. A recent idea from the doc is an excess of stomach acid, though i would think if this was the case the pain would be more generalized rather that in one spot every time.

    I am just confused, lost and in pain and I want it to stop. I don't know what else it could be or what else to do. My husband is scared and I am going to see if my insurance will cover a gastroenteroligist. But I am seeing my regular doc later this week, and was hoping for some new ideas as to what this is.

    Oh and the only thing I can think of that could have possibly triggered this renewed bout of pain is that the weather has gotten much cooler in the last 2 weeks. No lifestyle changes or anything else. Oh and hot showers seems to make the pain flare up.

    Thanks if you actually read all this and can maybe shed a little light on all this.

    • ANSWER:
      I had chronic dull to moderate pain in my lower right side for over a year. They checked my appendix. It looked fine. It came back. They checked my appendix 4 more times and finally took it out. They said they it looked 'normal' but when I read the surgical notes it didn't exactly SOUND normal the way they described it...

      Guess what honey..I have no more pain.

      IBS can also cause pain there...I have that as well but I'm on Donatal and it helps!

  27. QUESTION:
    Ovary pain......help!?
    Hi,
    Ok so over a year ago now I had terrible pain in my lower right side for about 2 days. Eventually my mom took me to the ER and it turned out to be a burst ovarian cyst. The ER people told me to go home and like 2 months later it would be like it never even happened. Ever since then like once a week or once every two weeks I have a pretty horribly pain either in the same spot or on the opposite side. It gets so bad that I can't even laugh or sometimes walk. I am continually going to my OBGYN about it, he gave me birth control pills saying that they normally fix these kind of problems. I have now been on it for 10 months and it hasn't helped at all. They did a urine test and it is fine so they said all they could do was go in my belly button with a scope to look at my ovary's. I don't want to have that done though so I just said no. Over the summer they told me I could tag on my birth control so I wouldn't get my period for like 2 months, I did so and it went great. Then after 2 rounds like that I was going to just let it come but 22 days before I was supposed to get my period I got it. I have now had it for 18 days. At first it was very light, then really heavy, now light again. The thing that worries me is that today I had that Ovary pain 2 times.
    I don't know what is going on so if anyone has any idea please let me know.
    Thanks

So I used to take chaste berry(vitex) which made wonder to all of my pcos symptoms(except nausea It got me a lil nausea for awhile) but the problem is it never gave me my period.

Hughes and Guernsey seem to think that Lachesis acts even more prominently on the right ovary; others believe the opposite, the tendency of affections being, however, to move from the left toward the right side. Suppuration and chronic enlargements of ovary may call for Lachesis. Zincum. Boring in the left ovary relieved by the flow, somewhat better from pressure; fidgety feet. Graphites. Swelling and induration of the left ovary; also pains in the right ovarian region with delayed scanty menses. Argentum metallicum. Bruised pain in left ovary and sensation as if ovary were growing large. Naja. Violent crampy pain in left ovary. Dr. Hughes valued it in obscure ovarian pains not inflammatory in nature.

  29. QUESTION:
    Round ligament pain... 18 weeks pregnant?
    I have been having severe lower right abdominal pain today. I called my OB and talked to the nurse. She said that it was most likely round ligament pain and I should just rest on the opposite side of the pain and take it easy. She said most likely the baby is laying on a tender spot. He definitely is because i felt him kicking it earlier.

    Early on I was suffering from an ovarian cyst, but I don't think that is what this is this time. Even if it was, they can do anything about those either. The nurse told me to call back if it got worse and my doctor would be on call this weekend. I have an appointment on Tuesday to see him for an ultrasound, so I guess I will just try to wait it out. I just can't believe it is so painful. I can barely sit or walk, and using the bathroom is very painful because of pressure. It's just ridiculous. Anyone ever had it this severe?

    • ANSWER:
      I've been getting round ligament pain since the beginning and its pretty severe, but normally mine is brought on by walking, or some sort of exertion. Even just going to the grocery store can become excruciating, however normally sitting down will help it ease up. I don't know what to tell you if relaxing isn't helping.

  30. QUESTION:
    My side hurts around where your appendix is but on the opposite side...?
    So it has lasted all day but I don't know what it is. It is a consistent pain... What do you think it may be and what should I do? I did nothing to hurt myself
    The pain is very sharp and unbearable. I can put my finger on it

    • ANSWER:
      You should not ever ignore an unexplained pain in your stomach. If you are female, it could be ovarian cysts. That could make you feel very sick and have a lot of pain, especially if one ruptures. A urinary tract infection can also cause abdominal pain. A kidney stone or a kidney infection is another possibility. If you have already had this pain constantly for more than a day you need to get it checked.

  31. QUESTION:
    Sharp pain in pelvic/ovary area?
    It's on my right side near where my ovary is. It's sharp and can last up to 10 minutes(usually around 5). Sometimes it comes after or during sex, sometimes I'll be trying to go to the bathroom, or sometimes it happens when I'm not doing anything. I'm on the depo shot which causes me to have my period only once a year(which has already passed). The pain often causes me to need to curl up REALLY close or just the opposite to stretch out REALLY far to try and get rid of it. What could it be? What else should I be looking for in order to be sure if it's a serious issue?

    • ANSWER:
      I would always get pains like that when I'm ovulating. But if you're on the depo shot, then you shouldn't be ovulating, am I right? I'm assuming that's how it is, anyways.

      But it COULD just be from the hormones. How long have you been on the shot? If your body isn't used to it yet, then it could be from that.

      Or it could be something more serious like an ovarian cyst or something like that. My advice would be to go talk to your doctor about that, just in case something more serious is wrong.

  33. QUESTION:
    Did my ovarian cyst rupture?
    I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst in my right ovary a week ago. The doctor told me if it ruptured, I would have a sudden stabbing pain. But the pain I'm feeling now is on the left side, the opposite side of my cyst as well, and the pain is gradually getting worse. It's not a stabbing pain, but it's a dull pain. Could my cyst still have ruptured?

  35. QUESTION:
    Annoyed at my doctor... Ovarian cyst - 10 points?
    I'm 17, I've been getting pain/discomfort in my lower right abdomen, back pain on my period which is unusual for me, and upper right leg cramp. My doctor examined my abdomen, pressed on it a few times, then said she was completely baffled as I was feeling no pain. I just tried the same excersizes at home, where she pushed the opposite side to see if it hurt, and I pushed a little lower, and it did - my right side started hurting. She then made me do a urine sample, which came back negative. She then proceeded to tell me to come back in 2 - 3 weeks to ARRANGE an ultrasound scan. What? Hasn't 2 months of pain and discomfort been long enough? My parents say I'm overreacting and won't listen to me... My mum says "It'll just be growing pains" , but like, I wasn't born yesterday. I know my body, and something feels wrong. I'm just so annoyed how my doctor was "completely baffled" yet my symptoms are some of the most obvious of a cyst. What shall I do?

    • ANSWER:
      Talk to your dad and mother - together if it's possible - and let them put themselves "in your shoes" so to speak.

      Tell your mom what would she say if she had a 'lump' in her left breast and the doctor would tell her "Come in almost a month to make an ultrasound or a Mammography and your dad how would he feel if he can't take a piss comfortable and the doctor - after introducing his finger up his rectum - tells him he has a little "lump" inside "there" and he wants him to be back in a month, so to speak.

      Then ask to see another Doctor.

  36. QUESTION:
    Can someone please tell me what a cyst is?
    Thanks in advance

    • ANSWER:
      It depends upon what sort of cyst it is. They can be normal or abnormal. For instance when you ovulate you produce a cyst on your ovary that holds the egg until it matures. These are called follicles. With normal ovulation you usually produce 1 or 2 eggs. When you take fertility drugs you should produce more. Depending upon the strength of the meds and how your body responds. When the egg is mature the cyst/follicle is supposed t rupture. There are times that it doesn't for some reason and the cyst can grow and cause problems. You can get other types of ovarian cysts that can cause pain. Most of those will go away on their own after awhile. But some can cause other problems. You can also have cysts other places in your body. A cyst is not solid. It is filled with some sort of fluid, Cysts are often found in breasts. If they are filled with only fluid they are considered benign. If they are cloudy and contain other matter they might need to be biopsied. But there are certain patterns they look for to decide. I would imagine that it would be the same thing for others types of cysts. I has cysts in my kidneys and the doctor told me it was nothing to worry about. They were discovered while looking for the cause of pain on the opposite side. It would really help to know the context of the cysts. I hope this helps.

  37. QUESTION:
    What should I do..Kidney infection or nothing?
    Hello...for about a week i've had groin pain. I was at the obgyn for an ovarian cyst (on the opposite side) and she said i had some unexplained blood in my urine. My back hurts and I have pain going into my shoulder and back..none of this is all the time. I'm drinking a lot of water (I'm always thirsty) and I'm not peeing very much and it is starting to burn a little (could be water retention). I just don't feel that great. I'm not sure I want to go the ER today. My back does hurt time to time because I had a disc replacement 2 years ago and it can get painful from working out. The pain comes and goes and advil isn't helping much. I'm just not sure what the heck this groin pain is...because the cyst I had was on the right side..my pain is on the left side..The groin pain is worse laying down still or just trying to sit? Maybe a pinched nerve..I don't know..anyone ever felt like this? It's icky and I don't feel like eating..it's just not fun.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't want to sound alarming but I want this as informative as it could be..Basing on the signs and symptoms that you mentioned I'm afraid that the pain is due to presence of renal calculi(kidney stones) in your kidney. It could have obstructed the ureters which caused severe pain. I have drawn out such idea basing on how you described the pain. Yes, pain associated with kidney stones is radiating and would usually include the back and typically spread later to the groin. And in addition, when you mentioned presence of blood in the urine(hematuria) it is also one of the classic signs of a kidney problem.

      However, I'm no doctor but I'm saying all these because I want to stress out that you should not delay any checkup. Have your doctor check on you and have him run some tests just to be certain on whatever is going on with your body right now. Persistent pain itself is a good signal that you should seek medical advice immediately. I hope you'd do measures as soon as possible so you could get yourself treated and hopefully be well without feeling such excruciating pain..Hope I've been informative as I could be. Good luck and may you get well soon..

      Homeopathic Medicines & Treatment for Ovarian Cysts, Ovary Pain Neuralgia, Ovaritis

      #Apis mellifica. [Apis]
      Few remedies cause as many ovarian symptoms as Apis. It has an active congestion of the right ovary going on to ovaritis, with soreness in the inguinal region, burning, stinging and tumefaction. Ovarian cysts in their incipiency have been arrested by this remedy; here one of the indicating features is numbness down the thigh. It has also proved useful in affections of the left ovary. Tightness of the chest may also be present, with the occurrence of a reflex cough and urging to urinate. Mercurius corrosivus. Hughes prefers this remedy in ovarian neuralgia. Peritoneal complications also indicate it. Bovista has also cured ovarian tumors.

      #Belladonna. [Bell]
      As this remedy is one particularly adapted to glandular growths it is especially useful in acute ovaritis, and more so if the peritoneum be involved. The pains are clutching and throbbing, worse on the right side, the slightest jar is painful, and the patient is extremely sensitive. The symptoms appear suddenly; flushed face and other Belladonna symptoms are present. Platinum. Ovaries sensitive, burning pains in them, bearing down, chronic ovarian irritation with sexual excitement. Much ovarian induration is present. Palladium. Swelling and induration of right ovary. It lacks the mental symptoms of Platinum, such as mental egotism and excitement. Aurum. Ovarian induration. Lilium. Ovarian neuralgias.

      #Lachesis. [Lach]
      Pain in left ovary relieved by a discharge from the uterus; can bear nothing heavy on region. Hughes and Guernsey seem to think that Lachesis acts even more prominently on the right ovary; others believe the opposite, the tendency of affections being, however, to move from the left toward the right side. Suppuration and chronic enlargements of ovary may call for Lachesis. Zincum. Boring in the left ovary relieved by the flow, somewhat better from pressure; fidgety feet. Graphites. Swelling and induration of the left ovary; also pains in the right ovarian region with delayed scanty menses. Argentum metallicum. Bruised pain in left ovary and sensation as if ovary were growing large. Naja. Violent crampy pain in left ovary. Dr. Hughes valued it in obscure ovarian pains not inflammatory in nature.

  45. QUESTION:
    Could it be Appendicitis?
    Okay here's what's going on.

    Earlier this week I had strange abdominal pains, I've experienced the same pains during my period but I'm too early to get mine. Basically, when I went to bed my stomach hurt a little and it kept me up almost all night. Finally in the morning I (sorry for the TMI, but I feel it might be important) had diarrhea and I felt like I was going to throw up, I also had like a hot flash or something, my body just got really hot and that was mostly what made me nauseous. Like I said, I had these symptoms before, but usually at the beginning of a period and again too early for that.

    Well, after my...episode, I felt much better after a few ours. But, beginning yesterday, I been having a different kind of pain on the lower, left side of my abdomen like parallel to my bellybutton and about three inches in diameter. When I feel it, it's like a sharp, burning pain that varies in severity. I know the appendix is on the opposite side, which is why i'm so confused! I'm not even sure if it is appendicitis but I obviously want to figure it out ASAP.

    Also, the past couple days I have been breathing kind of rapidly, like since friday or so, and I will be laying in bed at night and I almost can't sleep because of it. That and a cough, though the weather is sub-zero here and these things could have something to do with that. I just thought I'd mention them anyway.

    Thanks in advance for any helpful answers, and to anyone who gives me a stupid answer... take up crossword puzzles or something because you are not helping anyone.

    • ANSWER:
      No, appendicitis pain starts at the bellybutton & moves diagonally down to the right.
      Dehydration
      Ovarian cyst or endometriosis
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome has pain in left side.
      Hernia
      Flu

      Sounds like you ought to get checked by a MD, it might be serious.

      Google: mayo clinic>>diseases

      Good luck

  46. QUESTION:
    What are the symptoms to an infected appendix?
    I've had a lots of aches and pains lately, once that has been bugging me the most is a sharp pain on my left side a little infront of my hip. What do you think this could mean? i've also had a lot of other pains such as headaches, sore muscles, sore neck, cramps (i can guess what that's from ^^), it hurts to breathe (it feels like there's a lot of pressure on my chest), and im really tired. i also just got a hepititas A vaccination and i've felt worse since i got that. In all, i don't feel feverish (my bodys not over heating or anything) and i don't feel any nausea. Can anyone diagnose me with something?

    • ANSWER:
      Your appendix is on your right. Unless you have complete situs inversus, which is a rare condition in which all of your organs are on the opposite sides.

      Left pelvic pain is frequently caused by ovarian cysts. If you're about 5 weeks pregnant, it could also be an ectopic pregnancy.

      The rest of your symptoms aren't relevant to these two conditions, and I'm not sure how they could be related.

      Appendicitis symptoms include right lower abdomen pain, fever and rebound tenderness. Press on the area that hurts, and push in as much as you can. Then release the pressure quickly. If you feel a new strong, sharp pain in the area when you let go, you have rebound tenderness, which is a suspicious for appendicitis.

  47. QUESTION:

  49. QUESTION:
    How do u tell if you have appendicitis and not just a bad stomach ache?

    • ANSWER:
      Appendicitis is an inflammation of the appendix, most frequently caused by some type of hard material getting lodged at its tip.

      The appendix is a small pouch located at the juncture of the small and large intestines. Although it may have had a function at some point in evolutionary development, the appendix serves no purpose now.

      Causes

      Despite its uselessness, the appendix can cause problems when it becomes inflamed. Inflammation occurs when the hollow, tubular structure becomes clogged with masses of waste matter, intestinal worms, or other material that can prevent normal drainage. The blockage provides a fertile environment for bacteria to grow and multiply, causing infection and inflammation.

      Symptoms

      In the beginning, appendicitis may produce a dull or sharp pain in the navel area of the abdomen. Any movement, such as coughing or sneezing, can intensify the pain. In early stages, patients may also feel nauseated and may be unable to eat. Constipation can accompany appendicitis; however, about 10 percent of patients have diarrhea instead. Adults may run a mild fever (up to 101 degrees Fahrenheit), but children generally experience higher fevers. Occasionally, the pulse rate accelerates to about 100 beats per minute.

      Within hours, the pain moves to the lower right side of the abdomen over the appendix and becomes continuous. Because the location of the appendix may vary from one individual to another, pain may emanate from the back, side, or pelvis -- or even from the opposite side of the abdomen. Soon the entire area around the appendix becomes extremely tender as the abdominal muscles begin to tighten.

      As the fever rises and the pain grows more intense, chances of rupture also become greater. Rupture results when the appendix becomes so swollen and filled with pus that it bursts, spreading infection to surrounding organs. One serious complication that may result from rupture is peritonitis (inflammation of the lining of the abdominal cavity).

      Any fever with nausea and abdominal pain should be reported to a physician. More severe pain is an immediate medical emergency that must be evaluated and treated to prevent potential complications. Appendicitis can affect anyone, but the disease is more prevalent among people between 10 and 30 years of age.

      Diagnosis

      When confirming appendicitis, the doctor checks for tenderness over the appendix. A blood test determines whether there is an elevated white blood cell count (in response to infection, the body produces extra white blood cells to help fight the disease). The doctor may perform additional tests to rule out disorders sometimes mistaken for appendicitis, such as inflammation of the gallbladder, kidney stones, or a kidney infection.

      In women, a twisted ovarian cyst (the formation on an ovary of a sac filled with fluid or semisolid material) or a ruptured ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that develops outside the uterus) may produce symptoms that are similar in appearance to those of appendicitis.

      Treatment

      Although appendicitis cannot be prevented, prompt diagnosis can lead to effective treatment. Patients who suspect appendicitis should not eat, drink, or take drugs to relieve pain until a doctor has been consulted. Eating or drinking any substance, especially taking a laxative, will stimulate activity in the intestine, which may cause the appendix to rupture.

      The most common treatment for acute appendicitis is surgery to remove the inflamed organ. To ensure against further infection, antibiotics may also be prescribed after surgery.
