    Default do you get ovulation pain with your endo?

    Hi there,

    I am 31 yrs old and was first diagnosed with endo 8 years ago. For the last 2 yrs we have been ttc and as time goes by the pain during my cycle is wearing me down. I only had few spots of endo and past adhesions to my bowel which were all removed. However, I still have sharp pains and cramps on my right side from about the expected time of ovulation till i get my period.

    Some months it leaves when i actually get my period (i thought this was strange) and other times i just get the pain all the way through till end of period where i get just over a week of relief before in starts all over again.



    I just wanted to know if anyone else experiences something similar in pattern and what you have found through medical investigations. Could it mean my right ovary is having some other issue? My gynae didnt say anything about it.

    Alot of women get ovalution pain - doesn't necessarily have anything to do with having endo so I wouldn't be too concerned with the ovalution pain. The fact that it is lasting so long and getting worse is more of a concern. It could mean a number of things or it could be scarring from the endo.

    Scars from endo and/or operations can cause you to be more sensitive and can make it feel like something worse is going on that actually is. (Certain "positions" can also aggrivate it too, if you catch my drift!)

    Personally if your pain is getting worse - I would go back to the doctor, telling them what's going on (even make a journal to track each month) and get an ultrasound. They can pick a few things with internal ultrasound quite easily and get an idea.

    Also acunptunure is very good at helping with pain for this kind of thing!

    thanks Lucia. I will definately be asking the fs about it. My last gynae pretty much ignored my concerns and just attributed it to endo in pouch of douglas, which she just left in there.

    I have been considering acupuncture. Im guessing you use it and have had a good experience?

    Hi Jules ,

    I was seeing my fertility specialist and I express my concerns with pain during ovulation. I always had them but when we had our first assisted fertility cycle with Clomid the pain was so bad I had to ease myself into seats!!!!!!!. He said this is usually just due to a little scaring that may be in the tubes. But this will be an issue if they then seal. I would chat with you specialist again and see what they say.

    My gynae checked tubes with dye and she said left side was blocked with right side having a delayed reponse to dye flow. My pain is on the right side only, there is absolutely no pain on my other side. It is always on the right, so maybe it does have something to do with with tubes.

    Im just hoping that it doesnt have anything to do with my ovaries/egg quality etc. I dont want to have any other fertility issues in addition to the tubes problem. Fingers crossed! I have my first fs appointment week after next.

    It might be time for a new doctor if you feel that the one you have now is not listening to your concerns!

    Ovalution pain is the cysts that form during normal ovaultion and the eggs being released - I am no doctor but from what I understand - it doesn't affect the quality of your eggs. That is determined by your health and hormones.

    Yes I go to acupunture, my FS actually told me years ago to give it a try and it works well. There are plenty out there who specialize in female issues!!

    hi there,
    i have to wait another few months till i know for sure i have endo, but i have been getting pretty bad ovulatiuon pain since coming off the pill early this year. I notice it's more on my left side and the first time i had it i was lying on the floor at work, crippled over. The pain started slightly at night then got worse in the morning before dissapearing by lunch time to nothing. then i haven't had so much as a slight cramping feeling till this week when i had the crippling stomach pain again for a day and it slowly took 2 days to go. it made me wonder if i only ovulated those two times this year, cause i don't know why it would be painful one time and nothing the next.
    Anyway i have heard accupunture can be quiet relieving, but from experience if your doctor is not listening to your concerns, get a new one.

    i wont be going back to that gynae thats for sure! I went back to my referring GP yesterday and she was very appalled that the gynae noted that i had spots of endo however she did not treat them. My GP is an overseas trained Gyno/Obstetrician so she has performed the surgeries before. She wont be referring anyone else to see this gynae.
