Hi. I was admitted on march 7 with severe lower abdominal pain and pain while urination. Initially it was diagnosed as uti. Next day they sent me in for a scan where they found a corpus luteum Cyst rupture on the right side. I have very regular periods. Every 29 days. My periods then was on Feb19. I got my next period on mar 19 with bleeding lasting few hours compared to my usual to my 3 day flow. So again my Gynec did a scan and it showed that there are no Cystic area and that i am perfectly normal. But today i started having the same pains. The same right sided and lower abdominal pain. And pain while urination. Is it another Cyst? I know Its a functional Cyst but i am afraid it will rupture. The pain is really horrible. Is it possible that i can get it every month? I never had any menstrual problems. Me and my husband plan to conceive. Will it hinder? Should i seek medical help more in context of conceiving. We have been married for 5 months now. Should we wait for some more time.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the symptoms occur during midcycle time, they could be due to ovulation, also known as Mittelschmerz. It is usually felt as one sided severe pain around ovulation time. It is believed to be caused by the ovarian capsule stretching by the growing egg follicle before rupture, or due to the fluid/blood released during rupture causing the irritation & inflammation of surrounding structures resulting in pain. The confirmation is usually done by ultrasound scan confirming cyst/follicle rupture. Pain relievers started (around ovulation time) helps to control the symptoms. It can be used as indication to monitor ovulation and time your intercourse (if planning for pregnancy). If you are not planning for pregnancy, use of hormonal contraceptives (to prevent ovulation) would be helpful in controlling symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification and assistance.
Another possibility includes deep endometriosis and their growth causing eth pain along with pain during urination and bowel movements (depending on the location of the endometriosis implants). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Discuss your pregnancy plans and proceed with further treatment options as suggested based on examination findings and investigations results. 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.
