what can cause a dull menstrual like cramp pain on right side of pelvic area?
For the past 3 to 4 days I have been having a menstrual cramp like pain but it is only on the right side. It is not a severe pain but enough of pain that after 4 days it has worn me down and made it hard to do anything. I have taken perscription Ibprofen I had left from my gallbladder surgery and it doesnt seem to help. If I put a heat pack on the area it helps but as soon as I get up and move around its right back to hurting again. Im absolutley miserable..what can cause this?
It sounds like an ovarian cyst. A gyn can run an ultrasound to confirm.
I got this shortly after I went off the pill. It happens around mid cycle. The pain increased for about 4 days, then tapered off over the next 4 days. It hurt most when I was walking, but also hurt when I was lying down. In most cases you do not need to do anything about it. They resolve on their own. They may reoccur with each cycle.
thank you for your answers. i know i had an ultra sound done last year and it showed a couple cysts but they said they were big enough to cause any problems so maybe thats what it is and a new one has shown up or an existing one has gotten worse maybe? yea ovulation could be a possibility too..i never thought about that but it would be hard to track my cycle to see because i have the mirena. sometimes i have a menstrual cycle and sometimes i go without one for months.
I know there are other people out there who suffer from extremely
painful menstrual like cramps while running (saw this on active.com but
they updated their site and the discussions was lost.) Anway, during
the second two weeks of the cyle I suffer from these cramps and have to
stop running after about 10 minutes. I also have the urge to run to the
bathroom. Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions to this
problem other than having to go on some sort of birth control? Oh yea,
taking advil before a run doesn't help either.
