Ever since my kid in January 2013 I have felt sick. After ER trips the side pain was from ovarian cyst. Why do they hurt before my period sooo much?!!

Ovarian cyst: Explanation may need longer space, but, you have several ovarian follicules that mature to release an ovum during your mestrual cycle. Some of those follicules becomes cystic at times and the inflamation and distension in the area creates the pain. Avoiding maturation of follicules can help with the pain, typically using contraceptive pill to avoid ovulation. Talk to your Obstetrician. ...Read more

Symptoms can include: lack of period, nausea, vomiting, frequent urination, feeling moody, fatigue, swelling or pain of breasts, mild cramping, headache, insomnia, etc. You didn't mention if you used any form of birthcontrol. Having sex should not be a cause for a late period in a female who is not pregnant. ...Read more

Pregnancy worries?: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period.
