My Left Ovary Hurts When I Cough
Scar tissue/hernia: If the area of your body where the ovary is located hurts when you cough it may mean that you have internal scar tissue. This is especially true if you have had previous surgery in the pelvis including a cesarean section. It may also suggest a heavier ovarian cyst on the affected side. A hernia of the bowel may also be the culprit. Get it checked out! ...Read more

I seem to have thrush but i also have lower tummy pain, blood stained discharge and my left ovary is hurting especially when I cough?
Go for major dx: A UTI can cause lower and discomfort and may be part of the picture. The discharge may be incidental but there is a chance you have an infection of the uterus.

Also, do an upt. ...Read more
Neuritis: Pain in the lower abdomen that is exacerbated by coughing or lifting is commonly an abdominal wall neuritis and not usually the ovary (unless it is quite enlarged).

Neuritis pain will resume after heat pad removed ...Read more

I have bad pain in my lower left side. Occasional nausea and bad headaches. Pain in side worsens when I cough. Been told have a 3cm cyst on left ovary?
Pelvic Pain: It may not be the ovary that is hurting. The belly does not always tell the body directly where the pain is coming from. Thus, left pain can have its source somewhere else. It can seem like your ovary is the source but it may be something else. Common other things can be GI pain, back pain, other pelvic organs, etc. An evaluation with a doctor may help determine the source. ...Read more

Pelvic pain: I really need more information to give you a meaningful answer. How old are you? Are your periods regular? Do you have pain with intercourse? Etc.

Unrelated to PAP: The pap test (cervical cytology) does not assess ovary tissue or ovarian function. So, a normal pap does not have anything to do with the ovary. You may have endometriosis, a benign ovarian cyst, pain with ovulation, or a number of other things. I would get an ultrasound and see your ob/gyn. ...Read more
