Many other causes: First of all there are many other possible causes of pain in that pain. Do not assume it is an ovary. Have it evaluated.

What does it mean when the ovary on the right side of a woman hurts?

When?: Ovaries produce cysts each month so this normal and not usually source of pain. If its just one spot on left or right that she points to with one finger then maybe, if its an area any larger then likely bladder, intestine, endometriosis or uterine. If the pain is a small spot and only 1-2 days a week or so after her cycle, then its ovulation pain.

Could be related : Pain in your ovary when you sneeze can be due to normal ovulation, inflammation, a cyst; if other symptoms such as fever, pain, also could be an infection. If it persists or symptoms worsen, see your obgyn.

How do you konw: It's your ovary? It may be a muscle in your abdominal wall, if having other symptoms or really concerned, check it out with your doctor, meanwhile OTC nsaids/acetaminophen, unless contraindicated, may help , good luck
