Why does one ovary hurt more during a period?

Ovulation

Ovary
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.

Why does my left ovary hurt when i have my period?

Cramping

Ovary
It may be caused by uterine contraction, meaning cramping pain and radiating to left side. If it always happens at same area each period and pain gets worse and worse, then endometriosis should be roles out. Need to see gynecologist.

Mittlesmerch

The symptom of pain during ovulation is called "mittlesmerch" and other that the discomfort, it is harmless.

Dr. Lydia Collins answered:

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.

Ovary
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.

Imma virgin , i have Constant pain around right ovary. Its dull when i lay down and hurts bad when i walk. Period due at the beginning of next month?

Hard to say

Ovary
Many things could be causing your pain, but it sounds like you should see your medical professional to determine the cause of the pain. It is not necessarily coming from your ovary.

Late period led to bad painful period. When lie down, seem to swell on right side of ovary. Doesn't hurt. Just swells and is quite firm. Any thoughts?

Not enough info

Ankle_sprain
It's hard to judge how long this has been going on, and what imaging has been done. It's best to go to our OB/GYN doctor and have this ultrasounded and measured, so you have an idea what is going on, or if it only happens around your period. You want this documented, so you know what your baseline is if this is a chronic situation. Need this to compare. Then, you'll have your answer.

Had sex around noon today and my right ovary hurts really bad and its 11 at night.My last period ended the 2 of October. i should be ovulating. Prego?

Too soon to tell

Nocturnal
It would be too soon to tell if you are pregnant or not- although the discomfort you are feeling is not likely due to that- since you just had sex today--what is more likely is that you are feeling the discomfort of ovulation. There are also possibilities like a twisted ovary- so if pain doesnt go away- then you should go see the doctor
