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 7 months ago
Tenderness, yes - no discharge or bowel/bladder issues.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 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.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.Thanks for using Just Answer.
