  • You may have ovarian cysts. I had the same pain and had to have an MRI, when they discovered this. The egg in the ovaries sometimes fill with fluid and grow large until they rupture. It's not dangerous, but it's so painful. Your OBGYN should be able to help you. Take Ibuprofen for the pain.

  • Yes...I have ovarian cysts. You should talk to the doctor and check into that. They can do an ultrasound to see if that's what's causing the pain :)
