I was diagnosed with a left ovarian cyst in december. I have had left ovarian pain since october, now the pain is almost constant and pulling. Is it possible the cyst is still there a fairly large?
Cyst Followup: Depending on how large the cyst was when identified in december, it may warrant follow up with an ultrasound. If >5-8cm then you'd be at risk of a condition called ovarian torsion where your ovary can twist and get stuck because of the weight of a cyst. This can be a surgical emergency if the pain is persistently sharp and severe. May consider hormonal contraception for control of cyst formation. ...Read more

I had a partial hysterectomy 8yrs. Ago (29yrs. Old). For the last 8mo. I have been experiencing sharp ovarian pain for 3-4 days after intercourse.?
Sometimes scarring bands (adhesions) form after having surgery. These are often asymptomatic, but occasionally they manifest as pain later on. They can be difficult to confirm, but recurrent symptoms would prompt further investigation.
I would begin with an exam and a sonogram to evaluate for other causes such as an ovarian cyst. If nothing is identified, and the pain persists a DX laparoscopy. ...Read more

The night after IVF ET, fresh transfer, I had strong cramps and ovarian pain for one hour. It is possible to have expelled the two embryos?
Unlikely: What a stressful time and source of worry! I would probably have called my fertility specialist if I were you, but expelling the embryos is unlikely. Many factors are working together to try to get them to implant, and these factors are stronger than you would think. I wouldn't worry about the cramps, etc. Just try to keep calm, breathe deeply, follow your doctor's instructions, and believe! ...Read more
