Pregnancy test: I'm not exactly sure the question your asking. But you had unprotected sex during the most fertile time of your cycle and are now having symptoms of pregnancy. In your case a pregnancy test is order first. I'm pretty sure you realize that, but needed to hear it. In your case I'm not sure if you are actually asking about the pain many women have at ovulation, but can be answered after preg test

Suspected dermoid cyst on left ovary. Having burning type pain post ovulation. Only trace fluid cul du sac. Could I have peritonitis from it leaking?

Yes: This is a possibility. Severe pains require going to emergency room. If not severe consult obstetrician gynecologist for diagnosis and treatment or family practice

I'm not due to ovulate tell aug 24th but im haveing pain in my left ovary could I be ovulating early? And I have a 31 day cycle

I'm not due to ovulate tell aug 24th but im haveing pain in my left ovary could I be ovulating early? And I have a 31 day cycle

No, get to a doctor!: The first question an emergency physician would ask him/herself is "does jackie22 have an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy? " and the first test they would perform is a pregnancy test. Ectopic refers to a pregnancy that is outside of the uterus and is a true emergency. If you are not pregnant then we can sift through the other possibilities for your pain: infection, ovarian cyst, normal pregnancy, etc.

Hi Dr., Following are my ovulation study results: Day 12 & 14 : 12 mm follicle in Left ovary Day 16 : 14 mm follicle in Left ovary Day 18: 12 mm follicle in Left ovary Can this be possible? Why would the follicle size decrease?

Discuss with doctor: It is important to know if you are currently being treated for ovulation problems. Follicular monitoring can be done to assess one’s response to treatment. It is unclear from these isolated measurements if ovulation occurred.

Hi I got pain in my left ovary and am 3 days past my ovulation. What could it be?

Hi I got pain in my left ovary and am 3 days past my ovulation. What could it be?

Pelvic pain: Pelvic pain is complex as there are several organs in the pelvis. The ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, bladder, appendix, intestines, colon and rectum can all be the source. Pelvic pain requires and examination to help organize the evaluation.

Today I had 1 cm follicle in left ovary, when will it become dominant and when will I ovulate if I have 35 day cycle?

Today I had 1 cm follicle in left ovary, when will it become dominant and when will I ovulate if I have 35 day cycle?

Can't predict: The 1 cm follicle you see now may not necessarily become the dominant follicle. There's probably a higher than average chance for it to; but it's not a given. The timing is usually a retrospective marker (e.g. tracked backwards) in the absence of biochemical confirmation. So, predictably, ovulation occurs about 14 days before onset of menses. So, in your case, that would be about Day #21.

Day 12 ultrasound, appeared to have collapsed fol. On left ovary but 2 on right appeared mature. Is it possible I didn't ovulate already?

Day 12 ultrasound, appeared to have collapsed fol. On left ovary but 2 on right appeared mature. Is it possible I didn't ovulate already?

Ovulated early.: You may have ovulated the 1st follicle. If the others are between 18mm and 22mm, you may take HCG ingection to try to get the others to release or even try and iui. Hopefully you have been trying over the past few days. Best of luck!

Every month I feel twinges of what seems to be ovulation of my left ovary. I only have a right tube though. Could my right actually be ovulating?

Ovarian tissue left?: Hi Leah, If you do not have a right ovary, then there is no ovulation on the right. However, if the R ovary were removed and a small piece left then you could have ovulation on that side even though the remnant was small.

In my follicular report its 2 dominant follicles in left ovary. One got released on day 14 and other on 18th. Which day will b considered as ovulation?

Atypical: It is not clear exactly what is going on or how the doctor concluded what occurred on day 14 and day 18. It is clear that you are currently receiving care though from a doctor. I would schedule follow up with that doctor doing these tests and ask for clarification on the current treatment and plan.

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?

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.

Pain in left ovary. Had right ovary removed. Could this be a cyst or could be ovulation pain?

Pain in left ovary. Had right ovary removed. Could this be a cyst or could be ovulation pain?

Could be either: Hard to say without doing a pelvic exam and taking a more detailed history, including why you had your right ovary removed. I would suggest seeing your doctor for evaluation if the pain continues. Pelvic ultrasound may be a good idea to see if there is an obvious answer to your pain. Also need to consider whether you are around the time of ovulation (around day 14 of your cycle). Good luck!

Hi, on the 10th oct I had an ultrasound and was told I had only one follicle measuring 10.2mm in my left ovary. When should I expect to ovulate?

Hi, on the 10th oct I had an ultrasound and was told I had only one follicle measuring 10.2mm in my left ovary. When should I expect to ovulate?

Hmmmm....: I would go with what your doc told you. That 1cm left ovarian follicle can double in size before it ejects an ovum into the fimbria. Best estimate is 10-14 days after the first day of your last period. Hope that is helpful. Check this out. It might come in handy: http://www. Babymed. Com/pregnancy-wheel

I m 3o years, dominant follicle is noted in right ovary measuring 14* 10 mm and in left ovary 7.9* 7.8mm, is it normal? When do I ovulate?

Repeat Ultrasound: Please repeat ultrasound in 3 days. One needs to see that the follicles are growing. I need more info a swell. Are you using any hormones to induce ovulation? What is the concern? Good Luck!

Can a 2-3 CM ovarian cyst on your left ovary stop ovulation?

Can a 2-3 CM ovarian cyst on your left ovary stop ovulation?

Dominant follicle?: That cyst might be your dominant follicle, in other words that cyst may well be your next ovulation.
