I'm 9 weeks pregnant and have a deep pain in my lower left abdomen. Is this normal?

No: Such pain could be the result of rupture of the corpus luteum of pregnancy which can cause some bleeding and pain.

Sometimes an ovary may twist and block the arterial supply to the ovary (Torsion). So, get seen soon! ...Read more

PELVIC PAIN: Multiple causes come to mind, but as an ER physician, my "worst case scenario" thought process makes me think of ovarian torsion, which is a twisting of the ovary, where the blood flow gets cut off. This is a gynecologic emergency and time is critical. If that is not the cause, there are other non-emergent conditions such as UTI, bladder infection, ovarian cyst. Go to the ER now for your answer. ...Read more

Lately when me and my fiancé have sex my lower left abdomen starts to hurt and he has a large penis. Sharp stabbing pain.?

Could be a problem?: An ovary may be getting bumped with the intercourse, the uterus may be pushed or a tube may be pushed with intercourse especially if the male is of significant size. You may have a cyst on the ovary. One could postulate an infection as the cause. I would get checked out if this is a continuous problem. Perhaps changing positions may be better. Try and see. Perhaps, control depth of penetration. ...Read more
