Why Does My Left Ovary Hurt During My Period
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg.

With the average age of menopause being 52, it is likely that a patient at this age will skip periods regardless of the presence of the cyst. So please keep all of your follow-up appointments and scans. ...Read more
I'm having a strange pain in my left ovary and not sure why. Already ovulated, period comes in a week, and I'm TTC. Any ideas on what it could be?
Judge by pain nature: Due to the fact that intra-abdominal pain is not precisely localized, it's hard to advise in your case. Your symptoms could be caused by ovarian cyst (i.e., corpus luteum cyst), chronic adnexal condition if any, urinary stones, intestinal problem to name a few. If the pain is mild and self-limited, most likely it's not serious. If it's prominent and persistent, then Gyn evaluation is required. ...Read more

Don't worry: Some women do have left or right sided pain with periods, although this is more common mid-cycle when one ovulates.
