Ovary tenderness, lasting over ovulation time. What could this be? 28years old worrying about tumours

Ovary tenderness, lasting over ovulation time. What could this be? 28years old worrying about tumours

Don't worry!: Ovary tenderness can be caused by many things-- like benign cysts, endometriosis, or ovulation. And ovarian cancer is usually painless. If the pain has lasted for more than a week, or if it's severe, or you have a fever, it's time for a visit to the doctor. Keep track of your symptoms and when they occur in relation to your periods. At your age, ovarian cancer is very unlikely! I hope that helps! ...Read more

Normally when I ovulate one of my ovaries gets sore but this month I never felt the soreness from either of my ovaries does that mean I didn t ovulate?

Normally when I ovulate one of my ovaries gets sore but this month I never felt the soreness from either of my ovaries does that mean I didn t ovulate?

Ovulation: Pain during ovulation is a subjective feeling. Normally, women don't have any symptoms when they ovulate. If you wanted to know whether you ovulated this month or not, you should have done an ovulation test. Now, you won't really know. Sometimes women who don't ovulate skip their period and go without one until the next month or when the lining grows too thick and just sheds in bleeding. ...Read more

I'm having right ovary pain. It's tender to touch. Hurts when rolling over, sitting, and standing up. Pain comes after urination and persists.

I'm having right ovary pain. It's tender to touch. Hurts when rolling over, sitting, and standing up. Pain comes after urination and persists.

See a doctor: Pain after urination could mean you have a urinary track infection (UTI). I would suggest you visit a doctor to determine if you have a UTI or something else (possible STD). The doctor will likely need to test your urine as well as do a pelvic examination to determine if you don't have an infection involving the vagina, cervix or uterus. ...Read more

My ovaries were tender to the touch, days before my period. What could be the cause of this? I also noticed that I am having 34 day period cycles now.

My ovaries were tender to the touch, days before my period. What could be the cause of this? I also noticed that I am having 34 day period cycles now.

Many things: Unless your ovaries are on the outside of your body, it is hard to say for certain that they were tender. Other organs in that area are the uterus, bladder, ureters, small bowel, and colon. 34 day cycles could be normal especially depending on your age (you did not provide), but it could be you're actually having anovulatory cycles. See your gyn if you're concerned. ...Read more

Pains in my lower right abdomen very sore when I touch it around the area of my ovaries, could this be my apendix or my ovaries?

Either or none: The lower right side of the abdomen, just inside the hip bone is where your appendix sits. If this area is very tender, see a doctor.
If you produce an egg and/or a small cyst ruptures, this may also cause right or left sided pain, but a little lower, usually.
But there are also other organs, like your colon on either side, or the kidney tubes, or the bladder.
An exam or ultrasound may be helpful. ...Read more

I have a yeast infection and my ovaries feel sore can that be due to the yeast infection?

Pelvic infection?: Not sure what you mean by "ovaries feel sore". If you have low abdominal pain, see a doctor. Yeast doesn't do this, but other infections can (ncluding STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia if at risk). Was yeast professionally diagnosed? Yeast is not the most common cause of vaginal discharge. If any doubt at all, have the doctor visit ASAP. (If pain is severe or you have fever, do it immediately.) ...Read more

If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test.

8 months PP, attempted lower ab exercise for 1st time since delivery. Uterus and ovaries felt like they were going to explode and are sore. Normal?

Okay: If you are 8 months post delivery there really isn't much harm that you can do by exercising lower abdominal muscles. It's unlikely that there is something wrong with your uterus and ovaries. If you had a Cesarean delivery there could be some scar tissue or adhesions that formed following surgery. While there is no imaging study that can determine if you have adhesions, an exam by ob/gyn will help ...Read more
