  • constant ovarian pain

    So I have had a an issue with extreme pain in my ovaries since I was about 18, and I am 27 now. If I am not on birth control I experience stabbing pain in my ovaries on a daily basis that is so severe it makes life very difficult for me. I have been to doctors, had MRI's, ultrasounds and bloodwork. After about 3 years it was finally pointed out that I had some cysts, but not enough to be considered an issue. Quite honestly I'm super frustrated that doctors either can't figure out what's going on, or won't even look and constantly tell me that it's just in my head. Luckily while I am on birth control, and therefore not ovulating, it is mostly under control.

    I'm starting to look at the future, and honestly I would love to have my ovaries removed completely, however doctors still think I'm too young to make that decision. I do not want children, and never have, so that is not an issue for me. I would just love to have a more permanent solution for whatever problem I have. Does anyone have any advice or ideas for me?

  • Hi Maegan,
    Doctor's are correct...not just because you are young to decide about kids...but also because removing ovaries can trigger your hormonal problems.. If ovaries are removed in young age it causes hormonal imbalance and further effects the health. Your post is 2 months old..if you still have this problem I can suggest you a doctor whom you can consult on phone and presently his first online consultation is free..so if you feel that you can continue consultation you can..your choice ... as per this forum rules I can't post the doctor's website but if you want you can mail me at pwatson11*yahoo.com....I will surely reply you back

    • My wife has had issues with this over the years although it doesn't sound as severe as yours. She tells me that fried foods, more junky foods, and heavier weight make it worse. When she's eating healthier, slimmer, and exercising it's better. She eats a semi-vegetarian diet, partly because I'm a vegetarian and partly because her research and her feelings lead her to believe vegetarianism is better for her ovaries, but she likes meat. One of the things she specifically tries to stay away from is tofu. She likes it, but will only eat it once in a while.

      I haven't done the research so I can't really direct you anywhere to know where she's getting this stuff, but these are the things she's shared with me over the years. She's been offered surgical treatments, but, unlike you doesn't want them. She also doesn't like medication, so she doesn't use any, including birth control. They did a recent scope on her and said they didn't see any indication of the cysts, although they can apparently come and go. We're 37.

      Hope this helps.

      • Sounds like it could be endometriosis

        Comment


        • I want to know what's wrong with me. I have all the symptoms of endometriosis but nothing has shown up on tests. Before my period and after my period I have had pain in my lower right side in my pelvic area. During my periods I have horrendous cramps that basically leave me debilitated. I will have diarrhea but the pain feels like intense constipation. I will get shooting pains up my anus and vagina when sit down on the toilet and try to "go". I bleed heavily during my whole period and have to wear a tampon and maxi pad to bed. I went to the hospital with what I thought was an appendicitis but nothing showed up on tests and not even the morphine could help my pain (this was a week before my period) they sent me home with some Norco and that didnt help at all. I went to a follow up appointment with my primary physician and she said I needed to see my gyno because it could be endometriosis or PID. I'm almost positive it isn't PID because I don't discharge at all and no other symptoms of an STD so I'm left with endometriosis. My gyno did all the tests and found nothing then had me take my bc pills continuously so I wont get my period but I have done this before on my nuvaring and bled for 2 months and cramped the whole time. It has now been over a week since my gyno visit and I still have a horrible cramping pain in my lower right pelvic area and it was subtle for a few days at first and now today it is intense. I feel like my gyno isnt really listening to me. I may be being over dramatic but I AM WORRIED!!! Ps i dont really know how to work this site

          • Doctors are correct—not only because you are too young to make decisions about having children, but also because removing your ovaries could make your hormonal issues worse. Ovaries removed at a young age lead to hormonal imbalance, which further compromises health. Our doctors provide online fertility consultation with proper care and prepare a personalized preliminary treatment plan for patients, feel free to talk to our fertility specialist.
