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

Took clomopheine 50mgs days 5 to 9 im on day 15 started havin cramps early 2day then during sex got sharp pain around right ovary, am I ovulating?

Probably: When you take clomid, (clomiphene) the object is to ovulate. From what you are describing that sounds about right. Check with your provider. They may want you to get a Progesterone level in a week to make sure. A pregnancy test will not be positive for about two weeks from that episode. Good luck! ...Read more
