I'm twenty and have had a fairly constant pain in my lower right abdomen for the past two years. Sometimes it goes away for a while, but it always comes back, and can happen at any point in my cycle - it's right around where my right ovary is, so that's why I'm assuming that's the cause.
I've had three ultrasounds done, the first found nothing, the second found a small cyst on that ovary, and the third (to see if it had grown), again, found nothing. My gynecologist suggested that I might be prone to cysts and that I try hormonal birth control, so I've been on Junel-Fe for a few months now, and while it's seemed to lessen the pain, it's still not completely gone.
Anyone have any idea what this could be and what else I can bring up to my doctor? She doesn't seemed too concerned about it, but it does worry me.
The pain usually isn't too bad, sometimes can get worse with periods, and has always been located in that one spot. My periods are regular, and though they're usually somewhat painful, long, and on the heavy side, they've always been like that and I haven't seen much of a change (until I started the BC, of course).
