I have been experiencing a weird feeling - kind of painful…

Customer Question
Hi! i have been...

Hi! i have been experiencing a weird feeling - kind of painful but not really in my lower left side abdomen. It is a bit swollen and I had a sharp pain in that spot during intercourse about a week ago. I think it is a cyst - but have been reading that it will go away on its own. My regular gyn is not answering the phone and I am not sure when I would be able to get in for an appointment. Just want to make sure it's not serious.

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No recent injuries - swelling for probably a week - but I did have my period during some of that. Even still - I could tell it was more swollen on the left side.

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Tenderness, yes - no discharge or bowel/bladder issues.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 5 months ago

Your symptoms can be due to;

1) Salpingo-oophoritis (inflammation of ovaries and fallopian tubes).

2) Ovarian cyst

3) Meckel's' diverticulitis.

You need an ultrasound and may be a course of antibiotic.

Following may help you meanwhile;

Motrin

Warm compresses.

I can assure you, this is not likely to be serious.
