What does it mean when the ovary on the right side of a woman hurts?

When?: Ovaries produce cysts each month so this normal and not usually source of pain. If its just one spot on left or right that she points to with one finger then maybe, if its an area any larger then likely bladder, intestine, endometriosis or uterine. If the pain is a small spot and only 1-2 days a week or so after her cycle, then its ovulation pain.

What does it mean when your right side or ovary hurts?

What does it mean when your right side or ovary hurts?

Several things.: Ovaries might be naturally large, or they might be enlarged because of like ovarian cysts, or conditions like polycystic ovaries. Cancer should be ruled out, especially in older patients with pain, bloating, and weight gain. It can also be appendicitis if right sided, lower abdominal pain, with fever and high white count. If this is the case, a visit to your doctor, or hospital is imperative.

What exactly does it mean if a woman has large ovaries?

Depends: If there is not a specific cyst or lesion on the ovaries, and they are just 'larger' than normal- it can be due to polycystic ovaries (which tend to be larger than 'normal'). But it doesn't necessarily suggest anything dangerous, like ovarian cancer.

If a woman has streaked ovaries does that mean they have to be removed? Why?

Streak ovaries: The term "streak ovary" refers to an ovary that is undeveloped and usually not functional, typically because of a genetic disorder. Some do need to be removed, but it depends on the underlying genetic issues.

How could a woman concieve with one ovary and one uterine tube which are on opposite sides?

Poor chance: The odds are not likely but it is possible and it does occur. The fallopian tubes attract the egg to it. So an egg from one side can pass behind the uterus and get picked up by the opposite tube. This is true if the tubes are anatomically low in the pelvis. Imagine passing a ball from your right hand to the left behind your back.

How does a woman concieve with one ovary and one uterine tube than are on opposite sides?

It can happen: Apparently, the fallopian tube is able to pick up an egg from the ovary located on the opposite side. It is probably not as efficient process as it may be when the ovary is on the same side and the tube must be of sufficient length to be in the physical proximity to the ovary.

Pelvic pain=get seen: First I am sorry you are hurting. Lower abdomen pain can be due to several sources including kidney stones, appendicitis (is your pelvic pain on the right?) or ovary cyst rupture. All are very painful. Usually with a confirmed ruptured cyst, time will heal and you can take pain meds (otc tylenol/aleve) or get a prescription. A long term solution could be surgery (i don't recommend @ this time).

What does it mean when your ovary hurts for over a week?

What does it mean when your ovary hurts for over a week?

Hard to determine.: Please consider a consultation and providing more information about your current condition. Has this ever happened before? Do you have regular periods? Do you have any family history of cancer or any personal history of sexually transmitted infections? Without an exam, it might even be unclear whether or not this is from the ovary vs. Your intestines/bladder.

What does it mean if my ovary measure over 40mls? It seems to be a little on the large side? It used to measure 14.1mls. All very confusing.

What does it mean if my ovary measure over 40mls? It seems to be a little on the large side? It used to measure 14.1mls. All very confusing.

Depends: That is a little enlarged for an ovary. Their are many potential causes for an enlarged ovary. Typically the cause will be an ovarian cyst or mass. Their can be multiple smaller cysts. Your doctor should be able to help clarify the cause and significance of the enlarged ovary and determine what should be done next. Hope this helps.

My right ovary hurts. Could this mean I'm pregnant?

Take the test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

I think I have accidentally ingested a bit of mold now my sides killing ne and ovaries hurt but not on period!?

Not related: I doubt your ingestion of a bit of mold would have caused abdominal and ovarian pain. You may want to discuss your pain with your doctor to see if perhaps OCP might help your ovarian pain.

What does it mean when your left ovary hurts?

What does it mean when your left ovary hurts?

Probable ovary cyst.: If we assume the pain on your left lower abdomen is from your ovary, it's usually caused by an enlarged ovarian cyst, usually more prominent during mid cycle of your ovulation. Sometimes few advils (ibuprofen) help, but if it persists you should see your doctor to evaluate. It may not be related to your ovary

My left lower side near my ovaries hurts alot?

OVARY PAIN: I recommend scheduling an appointment with your gynocologist asap. Write the frequency of the pain, duration, what activities you are engaging in when experiencing the pain, and any other pertinent information. The pain may be associated with a tumor, cancer, or other surrounding reproductive organs malfunctionings.

My left side by my ovary hurts when I cough, what could be wrong?

My left side by my ovary hurts when I cough, what could be wrong?

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). Try a heating pad and if the pain improves even a little while the heat is on this means it is fairly superficial pain and not deep down in the area of your bowels or ovary. Neuritis pain will resume after heat pad removed
