I asked you what you are asking about your pain?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My question is what could be causing this sudden intense pain in my pelvic area. It seems to be mainly on my left side near my ovary and towards my uterus.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
It is most likely the fibroids.
Pain in that area can also be from an ovarian cyst.
A colon problem such as diverticulosis.
Exam is required to narrow this down, and perhaps a scan.
Sudden intense pain, if becoming more frequent, can indicate a more impending emergency.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
