HPT: Will put you mind at ease. It always amazes me to hear that women say they feel a cyst forming because by all rights that should not be possible .Maybe you burst a follicular cyst when you ovulated , that causes lower abdominal pain usually on one side because it was the side you ovulated from and if bad enough some have had nausea and dizziness with that too.
