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 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

What does it mean when your right ovary hurts more so when u stand up?

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!

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.

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.

Can your ovaries hurt?

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.
