What Does It Mean When Your Ovaries Hurt
Possible UTI: This sounds more like a urinary tract infection (UTI) than an actual problem with your ovaries. You ought to be checked.
Mild pain or pressure in pelvis (lower abdomen) is a symptom that can be due to a variety of causes, including issues with the gut, bladder, and for females, organs such as ...Read more
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.
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
Not sure: You could have a cyst on the right ovary. Or if you've ever had abdominal surgery, there's a chance you have adhesions, or scar tissue, on that side and that can cause pain. But more likely, the pain is from something else on the right, like a muscle that's strained. A gyn doctor might be able to sort that out!
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.
Go see your doctor: I'm not sure why/how you know it's your ovaries that are hurting when you cough (as opposed to just saying that your lower abdomen bothers you). Therefore, it's best to go see your family doc for an evaluation.
Not likely: Not likely. However if you are having pain near your ovary and there is the chance you are pregnant, then you need to take a pregnancy test. If you are pregnant then you need to be seen immediately, as this could be a tubal pregnancy.
Pain specific to: The general area of the ovaries is not a pregnancy indicator. Possible early pregnancy sxs: no period, breast swelling ; tenderness w darkened areolas, thin, white ; milky vaginal discharge, fatigue, ^ urination frequency, constipation, bloating, heartburn, backache, cramping, headache, food cravings or aversions, ^ sense of smell, enlarged waist, feeling faint/dizzy, mood swings, ^ gas, insomnia.
Ovarian pain: The most common reason for pain coming from your ovaries is an enlarging cyst. The ovaries are predisposed to cyst formation since that is a part of normal ovulation. Certain sexually transmitted diseases will cause pain in your fallopian tubes right next to the ovaries. You would not be able to tell the difference between tubal pain or ovarian pain. It needs to be checked out.
Ovarian pain: Radiates to both sides of the lower abdomen - shares nerve supply with this area but there are a variety of other possibilites -some potentially serious eg urine or pelvic infection, pregnancy related problem if sexually aticve, or less serious such as muscle/spine. If not already assessed please see a doctor to sor t this out, urgently if severe painSee 2 more doctor answers
