Painful ovaries, especially when lifting 1 leg up (NOT pregnant) Watch

    Hi,
    I got a coil fitted back in December and was fine on it (except during periods) but recently I noticed quite strong pelvic pain at random occasions that is stronger than period cramps. I think it's in my ovaries area and it gets worse if I lift my leg, apply pressure or tense my belly.
    Any idea what that may be? I'm kinda worried I have some cyst or cancer (mum has tumours in her uterus and grandma had her uterus and oviaries removed due to cancer).
    I'm going to the GP next week, but I'm quite anxious about all that and would like some ideas earlier

    Thank you

    I'm not bleeding but sometimes it is painful. Not in my vagina but certain positions cause me pain in the same pelvic region.

    It is most likely just a benign cyst on your ovary causing the pain as that is what I had and when I went to get an ultrasound there was a cyst on my ovary, however it was completely harmless. You should definitely get it checked out as soon as possible.

    You might also have acute pelvic inflammatory disease which is caused by bacterial infection which spreads up the vagina, you'll just get given antibiotics to treat it.

    Have you had your appendix taken out? If not, It could be that.

    Hopefully it's nothing too serious when you see your GP about it.

    Harmless or not, its painful and stops me from going swimming :/ (I went once, the pain got so bad I was scared I'll drown cause I couldnt move my legs).
    Yeah, coil increases your risk of pelvic inflammation, however I thought it would take longer to develop seeing as I only have it for about 1.5 months.
    And no, I still have my appendix, but the pain is on the other side. Its also rebound pain though

    If the pain is really that bad, the doctor will definitely remove the cyst for you through a simple surgery. Just relax, and I hope it's nothing too serious.
