In brief: Scar tissue/hernia
If the area of your body where the ovary is located hurts when you cough it may mean that you have internal scar tissue.
This is especially true if you have had previous surgery in the pelvis including a cesarean section. It may also suggest a heavier ovarian cyst on the affected side. A hernia of the bowel may also be the culprit. Get it checked out!
