I'm having a sort of grinding feeling during my period in my left ovary. Is it related to perimenopause or a symptom of something else?

Grinding feeling: Definitely not a sign of menopause. Possibly it is a cramp from the tube on that side as periods are associated with cramping pain. If the feeling resolves on its own and no other symptoms present and the discomfort is not that bad, i'd just watch it. ...Read more

I have 12cm simple left ovarian cyst.I have brownish discharge coming out before my period, sharp pain, burning sensation in left ovary, did it rapture?

I have 12cm simple left ovarian cyst.I have brownish discharge coming out before my period, sharp pain, burning sensation in left ovary, did it rapture?

Possibly: Sometimes ovarian cysts rupture and women know it, sometimes it's painless. I don't think the discharge is affected by or is affecting the cyst. At 12 cm i would also keep torsion or twisting of the cyst in back of my mind. Watch out for roller coasters or going upside down. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Swimming in the sea, later left ovary pain in 2 days possitive preg.test. Dr said do U/S to exclude ectopic, but pain is gone feel fine.Shall i do it?

Yes: It does not hurt to do a transvaginal ultrasound. You may also get a first glimpse of the embryo depending on when conception took place. In the meantime I see that you are on doxycycline. It is a class D drug for pregnancy which means increased fetal risk. Discuss this with your primary doctor. ...Read more

I have this green gooey discharge. It doesn't have an awful smell. My papsmear says normal but my ultrasound says I have a small cyst in my left ovary?

I have this green gooey discharge. It doesn't have an awful smell. My papsmear says normal but my ultrasound says I have a small cyst in my left ovary?

Evaluate the dischar: Although a greenish color is not typically associated with a vaginal infection, chances are that is what you are experiencing. In the absence of pregnancy, a significant abnormality of the cervix or the uterus ( consider an ultrasound and a colposcopy - closer viewing of your cervix), it is most likely an infection that needs treatment. Hopefully you are seeing your gyn. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a hemorrhagic cyst on my left ovary. It has not ruptured. I have a thick white discharge that has tested negative for yeast. Normal with cyst?

I have a hemorrhagic cyst on my left ovary. It has not ruptured. I have a thick white discharge that has tested negative for yeast. Normal with cyst?

Unrelated: Discharge isn't really related to cysts. If you have a hemoraghic cyst you are probably in the luteal phase of your menstrual cycle (the second half of the monthly cycle), and cervical mucous can be thicker at that point in the cycle. If there is itching or burning or bad smell, its not related at all and you should see your doc to better figure it out. ...Read more

I have abnormal mucus-like discharge, bloated in my lower stomach, have swelling on lower left ovary area, tired, feel bloated all over, what could it be?

See a doctor: This would require a doctor to check out. Some problems, such as bacterial vaginosis can cause cramping of the uterus, vaginal discharge with a fishy odor and possibly bloating. It is easily treated by a doctor. Irritable bowel syndrome can cause bloating and abdominal cramps. In either case, this constellation of symptoms could have several causes and is worthy of a doctors visit. ...Read more
