late period from cyst?

I've had a dull ache in my lower left abdomen for the past 5 days or so. I've had the same ache a couple of months ago, also on my left side. My period was due yesterday, but I haven't gotten it yet. Could I have a cyst, and could this be delaying my period??

Well a couple of things could be happening. Your ovulation could have been delayed which through of your cycle causing mis confusion to your ovaries and some pain. During your ovulation time you could have a cyst which is on the side which your ovary produces you to have your period on that side. Now either you can wait and see what happens hopefully if it is a cyst it will go away or may pop which you will feel a lot of pain then or go see you obgyn and get an ultrasound done which will show whatever is going on and get it taken care of. If it is nothing the obgyn may wait a couple of weeks and if you do not get your period the may have to start it for you. You can use a heating blanket on the side that you are in pain if you are. But go see ur obgyn a.s.a.p

Re: ovary pain/late period/neg test

I just realized that my left abdomen, near the ovary (at least I think where the ovary is) is tender when I press it. I am a vegan and I've read that it is much less likely for vegans to get ovarian cysts.. but I can't think of what else this could be. If it doesn't resolve itself I will go see a doctor.
