Hello,
This could be an ovarian cyst - and I would recommend that you get a pelvic exam a and a pelvic ultrasound. Other reasons - this could be pelvic scar tissue - what we call adhesions from possible PID - Pelvic inflammatory disease, or even endometriosis.

I don't have insurance and can't afford to do that right now. Is there medicine I can try to treat it with?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 4 years ago.
Hello,
You can try over the counter medications such as Motrin (Ibuprofen) 600 mg every 6 hours (maximum dosage is 2400 mg every 24 hours), or Naprosyn (Aleeve) and the dosage is 400 to 500 mg every 12 hours , maximum dosage is 800 to 1000 mg every 24 hours.
Also, if you have birth control pills - birth control pills help this pain by decreasing periods and also stopping ovulation.
I hope this helps, if satisfied, please click on ACCEPT as this would be appreciated, thank you.

It feels like a fire is burning from the middle to the lower right of my lower pelvic. Do you think Doxycycl HYC 100mg Cap would get rid of whatever it is?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 4 years ago.
Hello,
If you feel like this - this could be herpes, this could be a tubo ovarian abscess - and honestly this should be evaluated - the doxycycline is for a chlamydia or PID infection - so it might or might not help.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I have a IUD so I don't use birth control to control periods. It only hurts after my period. Which with having a IUD I dont have a full period or heavy one at that. Could this have anything to do with it? Would that still be a sign of herpes if it only comes when my period ends? I appologize for all the questions. I am just worried.
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 4 years ago.
If only after your periods - then the motrin or naprosyn might help if you START the medications about 2 to 3 days PRIOR to your periods - this could help tremendously.
Also, since you have an IUD - you might want to see if you have an infection - but women with IUDs with possible infections, I would give a course of doxycyline 100 mg twice a day for 10 days.
Herpes - painful, raw, and small pimples likes cyts with clear fluid, but unlikely HSV given your scenario.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Great thank you. My mom can get me some RX for the DOX. I will try that. I don't have any kind of sores or discharge of anykind anywhere. It is all on the inside like ovarie area to underneath my belly buttom around where I had my C-Section done from child birth. It almost feels like I am cut right there. The pain is kind of odd to explain. From a fire feeling to a bleeding feeling to a being cut open feeling. It last about 4 days after my period then goes away but those days are the worst days ever!
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 4 years ago.
This could be dysmenorrhea - a painful period - and this is just unexplained pain - so motrin/naprosyn would help.
Take care and please click on ACCEPT as this would be appreciated, thank you.
