Diagnosis needed

For the last few months, I've had right-sided pain around when I think I should be ovulating. It goes on for days and days, and it's only been happening for a few months. It's clearly not normal. The first month it happened happen to coincide with my visit to Dr. HooHoo, and after practically causing me to come out of the stirrups while feeling my ovary while pressing down from outside AND inside, she concluded I'd probably O'd from that side. Except, the pain has gotten worse, and is happening for a week plus during the cycle.

Yes, I know I should see the doctor. No, I don't have time right now. Any thoughts on what it is, though? Because I can't fit in a doctor's visit for at least 2-3 more weeks, and it really kinda hurts.

My guess would be a cyst. In July I had fairly constant cramping, some times worse than others. When I went for CD1 us/bw they found a 6cm cyst on my left ovary: 3 months later it's still there and fluctuates a bit in size. That's my guess.

I have a friend who has had a history of little cysts like this that either have to be surgically removed or pass naturally. Get it checked out friend! We don't want you permanently damaged!

I don't know, but I hope you feel better soon.

I'm thinking cyst or endometriosis. Cysts they can see from an ultrasound, but endo they won't know for sure unless they did laproscopic surgery.

I hope your pain has gotten better? I don't know what that could be, I'm sorry. XOXOX

Sounds like a cyst that could be growing. Do you have an ERgent care you could go to? Around here we have them open till 8 or 10pm and it is only a co-pay, like a reg Dr visit. See someone soon- if it is hurting you badly...you don't want a rupture.

Sounds like a cyst. I have one that reoccurs on a regular basis and is worse right before, during and right after ovulation.

It does sound like a cyst. Maybe you could get in for an u/s?

Although my last three cycles ovulation was quite painful and I have never had a cyst. It would go away eventually but it would take up to three days.
