Have a sharp pain in my left ovary area (if i poke that area it can hurt in response have had pain before) period is 8 days late could it be a cyst?

Yes it could be.: If the egg didn't release on time, there could be a "functional" cyst. But be sure that the late period isn't related to a pregnancy. If there is a possible pregnancy, run a home urine test. The pain may be related to a tubal pregnancy or a corpus luteum cyst which is normal during an early pregnancy. ...Read more

Why do my ovaries hurt i had unprotected sex 10 days before my period and he finished 2 days in a row inside me ?

Why do my ovaries hurt i had unprotected sex 10 days before my period and he finished 2 days in a row inside me ?

Anxiety?: The way you ask the question, it's pretty obvious you're worried about an unplanned pregnancy. Anxiety can cause physical symptoms. That's called somatization. First thing you need is a pregnancy test. My bet is that if it's negative your 'ovary pain' is going to go away. It's also time to have a talk with yourself about your sexual decisions. ...Read more

I have a sharp pain in both the ovaries during the 1st week I have my period and sometimes, the week before. It hurts to do anything that involves moving. Why is this?

Pelvic pain: It's hard for someone to localize where the pain originates... Ovary, tube, uterus, bowel, bladder, etc... Ovarian pain from ovulation is usually earlier (2 wks before period starts) depending on the length of your cycle. Yours sounds more like premenstrual symptoms. If u have no medical issues and can take ibuprofen, u can try taking it prophylactically before the pain begins. ...Read more

Sex and Ovaries: The most common cause of pain in the ovaries is mittleschmerz. This is a condition that occurs around 14 days before the beginning of your next period. The word is german for middle pain (pain between periods). Are you between periods? This pain is not related to pregancy. Always if you are concerned about pregnancy though, do a test. ...Read more

Why does one ovary hurt more during a period?

Ovulation: You would only ovulate from one ovary each cycle. That ovary would have a cyst as a normal part of the cycle. That cyst could cause the ovary to be painful. That is all normal. ...Read more
