Question Increased pain with ovarian cyst

I am 29 years old and a mother to 3 children. Since my second child was born I am occasionally afflicted with ovarian cysts. Normally I just ignore the pain and get on with life. This time however, I cannot. I am terribly bloated on my left side from my pelvis up to my ribs and have lots of pain on my left side and mild/moderate pain on my right side. This has been going on now for 10 days. I had an u/s last week and was told I have multiple ovarian cysts on my left side, one of which appears to have burst and one on the right. I wasn't told anything about size, or shape. But that they were typical follicular cyst that should go away on their own within a few cycles. Since this has generally been the case for me I didn't think much of it. Plus my pain and bloating was starting to subside yesterday.

Today however I am in a considerable amount of pain on the left with lots of cramping, pinching and burning. I had the novasure ablation done 9/06 and have had no bleeding since so I have no idea if this would be the normal time for my period or not. Should I be concerned that the pain is increasing or just keep waiting it out? My doctor is out of town for the next few days and I don't agree with the practices of the other doctors in the office so I hesitate to call and ask.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Increased pain with ovarian cyst

I don't know if your pain is making you unable to live your life, or the effect that over the counter pain meds has on it, but if it is really bad then you need to call the doctor's office. At a minimum, they might be able to see you and prescribe a pain med to help you get through until you can get in to see your doctor. If you think you can wait (and just take OTC meds), then call the office and get on the book for an appointment as soon as you can upon your doctor's return.

I hope that helps a bit.
