Belly pain: Endometriosis will cause pain on whatever side the actual deposits are and should radiate based on ur Neuro/Embrio anatomy. Ovarian cyst will most of the time hurt only to the side of its location. However, there are other reasons to have pain in the belly in a young woman, like u. If pain is persistent, please have your doctor examine u ASAP to determine he need for further workup. Hpe u feel btr
