Customer Question
I am on day 12...
I am on day 12 of my cycle. I’ve been having pelvic pain for the past few days. It’s mostly a dull cramping pain but occasionally it becomes sharp. It seems to be getting worse. I’ve had ovarian cysts before but never with symptoms. It’s difficult to get in to my Gyn. I am on Ortho Cyclen so I shouldn’t be ovulating. Should I go to the ER if the pain continues?

Worsening pelvic pain could be a sign of an ovarian cyst (which can occur despite the use of the Ortho Cyclen) or something more serious such as torsion (where the ovary gets twisted around) or even appendicitis. I hear what you're saying about your gyn but can you call them so they can send you for an ultrasound? Also most offices typically keep spots open for "urgent" appointments, which this would be. I would call your gyn and see if they can work you in, just to spare you an ER trip (which can be costly and time consuming).

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
