Ovary.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am getting an ultrasound tomorrow. Does anyone else have a lot of abdominal pains and feeling uncomfortable? My left seems to be more achey and feels tender sometimes when i press it in then other days when i press it in theres no pain. Sometimes it feels like when you stretch a ligament in my left. I have had a good feel and i can't feel anything myself. I am worried because the GP didnt feel my abdomen and just put it down to perimenopause because my FSH  and LH were raised. I have gained weight all over but particularly around my lower abdomen. Google is my worst enemy.

    First, don't Google! As you found out. Next, it might not be your ovary at all. I had the same pains. Turns out, it was colon related. I've had ibs for as long as I can remember and the most current symptom was sharp abdominal pain mostly from stress. I have diverticulitis too. The doctor said lower left pain was inflammation in my colon and the place where pain is felt in this circumstance. The doctor was glad I had the ultrasound to rule out my overt but when I got my colon issues straightened out, and the stress, all was fine. If you are over 50, you shoyld have a colonoscopy anyway.

    Are you still getting periods? If so it could be ovulation pain. I get that sometimes and sometimes right before my period I get pain there. I just had my annual pap and an ultrasound and that ovary is fine. I think it is definitely a peri thing because I didn't start getting aches in that area until peri hit and it is only when I'm either ovulating or about to come on. Like today, for example, I felt it and I'm due in three days. Hopefully your scan will reveal all is well. It could also mean that your ovary has shrunk. Mine has in a years time. My uterus has too. I think that is also a sign of menopause.

      You can still get ovulation pain if you miss your periods. The body will behave the same way without a period. I still get mine regularly but I have heard from some of the other women here that even though they miss their periods, they still get the symptoms associated with it. Ovulation pain is actually a known medical term called "mittelschermz."

    Just an update, had my ultrasound yesterday and an internal scan and everything looked ok, no cysts or anything so must be the perimenopause.

      Great news! If it gets better now, you can safely say it was probably stress related. Worrying about it can cause GI problems. As soon as I was checked out and found out I was fine, I got a lot better. If you still feel some tenderness issues there, I suggest you check with a gastroenterologist. There are things that can help.
