Ovary Pain

Ovary Pain

Hello everyone.
I have been having ovary pain for the past 4 to 5 days. It is not ovulation because i had ovulation pain on 11/8. Honestly, I thought it was possibly pregnancy at first so waited to see if my period would come and it did not. I took a pregnancy test this morning which was negative. Also, I have a severe migraine and extremely nauseous. I have had an increase of headaches over the past week or 2. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this with a possible cyst.

While you wait try using heat to help the pain by using a rice bag or water bottle. That always helps me. Hope you feel better!

Husband Told Me - He’s Unattracted To Me

Husband Told Me - He’s Unattracted To Me

About 6 weeks ago, my husband told me that hes no longer attracted to me and he knows I was just diagnosed with pcos and have gained weight. I weigh 153 right now and am 4”11, 30 years old, have 2 kiddos.

We have been together 14 years and since he has told me this, I feel very upset, sad, confused, and lost. I asked him over and over when did he start feeling this way.

To add onto that , he wants to have sex and wants me to do sexual favors (sorry tmi : blowjobs) and I don’t want to. Not… read more

Does Anyone Else Get Really Paranoid When It's That Time Of The Month?

Does Anyone Else Get Really Paranoid When It's That Time Of The Month?

Every time my af appears, I refuse to go out as I can have really bad heavy periods which cause me to leak/flood everywhere
I don't mind (but I still feel really embarrassed when it does happen) if I flood and I'm at home as I know that I only have a short walk to the bathroom and my fiance will bring me a change of nightwear and knickers and then whilst I am sorting myself out he'll go and see if I have caught anything when I've stood up
I hate going out when I'm on my af as I get really… read more

Any Recommendations For Fertility Specialists In The Philadelphia Area?

Any Recommendations For Fertility Specialists In The Philadelphia Area?

My partner and I are currently TTC and started our first round of fertility treatment, but unfortunately, it was unsuccessful. I know patience is key, but going through something like this isn't easy. I'm looking for a provider and team who are compassionate, sensitive, and patient-centered.

Has Anyone Ever Had An Awful Smell Coming From Their Private Parts?

Has Anyone Ever Had An Awful Smell Coming From Their Private Parts?

I've had one that started a couple of days ago and I'm not sure if it's to do with my diabetes or if it's something more serious.
I'm too nervous to contact my doctors about it.

Experiences With Tranexamic Acid Or Norethisterone?

Experiences With Tranexamic Acid Or Norethisterone?

Hello all, I have recently been diagnosed with pcos and struggling with my period this month. I was wondering how others have felt on medicines to help with bleeding? My flown itself isn't too heavy but I struggle with large clots, does TXA help lessen these or make them worse?

This website has been great for information following a new diagnosis ❤️

The only thing that worked for me with the bleeding was an IUD.
