Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I have a complex cyst in my left ovary I haven't had a period for 2 months should I be concerned?

Complex Cysts..: In a 52 year-old should be followed closely and surgical removal should be considered if it changes or becomes more painful. Typically these cysts and menopausal hormone changes are not related. With the average age of menopause being 52, it is likely that a patient at this age will skip periods regardless of the presence of the cyst. So please keep all of your follow-up appointments and scans. ...Read more

If there is a pattern of this pain every other month and then it goes away, I would not worry. Women can have unusual pain with periods.

If this isn't the case, then one has to consider the possibility of endometriosis. You mention that your ovary hurts but it could also be something else on the left side. ...Read more
