Pain in the ovaries

Ali de Bold

Does anyone ever get this? Its been happening to me lately. Generally if I cough or move in a sudden way. I'm a little freaked out. Any thoughts on what this is? I'm doing to make an appointment to see the Doctor of course but would like to not worry in the mean time.

Hmmm, is it ovulation time? I really have no idea. But, I do know, that I tend to feel some discomfort in that area when I'm ovulating.

time of the month

It hurts more towards that time forsure, but I always have to be really careful about coughing or sneezing regardles of the totm. The pain is really sharp and sudden. Goes away just as quickly.

there is no way to know what the issue is but I have had that sharp pain around that time and it was ovulation, mind you in the last year I had sharp pains and the doc said it was nothing. It wasn't until I had an internal ultrasound that they saw it was something else (cyst). I would go to a doctor and get it checked out, if the pain is sharp enough (even though it is passing) demand an ultrasound.

Yes - me too

There is a term called Middleshmertz Syndrome ( not sure of spelling ), the medical lingo for . . . pain from the release of the egg during ovulation.

It could be absolutely just you being in tune with your body - BUT - I had a fibroid that had twisted on itself (cutting off it's blood supply) and began to "break down" causing pain. Not to scare you - but get it checked pronto !!!!

Any pain that causes you awareness during a cough, sneeze or bedroom/bathroom function needs to be checked into without delay. Especially all you young'uns on birth control . . .

Hopefully, you just pulled an ilio-psoas muscle during ah-hem . . . "recreation" ! Let us know if you don't find it too private ;-)

another idea

If gyno checks out fine . . . make an appointment with a chiropractor. It could be a pinched nerve. Sometimes my back will hurt and cause nausea until I pop it myself. So you never know . . .

Thanks for the tips you guys! I got a referral to get an ultra sound so hopefully it isn't anything major.

I am told that internal ultrasounds are common practice now as well although some labs will only do the external one. If you want the internal one as well, it is best to ask when sheduling an appt....
