I am 29 with no children. I have had severe pain (mainly on my right side) for about eight months now.It's always been during ovulation and radiates down into my thighs. The pain is severe. When i visited a gyn a month ago, I was told that I had a cyst the size of a baseball.The cyst burst before my cat scan and ultrasound, so the images just showed a lot of fluid in my abdomen.I felt better temporarliy but then the pain came back stronger than before. It now occurs every day instead of during ovulation, and is in my back, and sometimes on my right side. It affects both thigh as well. The doctor gave me hydrocodone and birth control but no answers as to why im still in pain. They dont seem to know. Im wondering what the pain could be from and if I have any hope of having relief from it. It's interfearing with my job.I am worried about my ability to have children and wheather or not i'll be free from this pain. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the right sided pain and pain in thighs that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation (repeat CT scan, ultrasound scan, etc) to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Based on the examination findings and investigation results, your future fertility can be predicted. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
