A 21-year-old female asked:

I have menstrual cramps, but only on my left side. i am experiencing tender breasts as well, which i usually get during pms. could the one sided menstrual cramps and pressure be because of my ovarian cysts? is it likely cause for concern?

Menstrual cramps along with tender breasts at "premenstrual times" can occur normally, and may be due to more ovarian cysts on one side, but this sort of discomfort can be alleviated by using low dose oral bcp's. Ask your gyn provider about this.
