About this symptom

Ovary Pain

Women who are pregnant will often experience aches and pains they have never felt before. There are a lot of changes happening in the body, especially in the abdomen, as your body prepares to carry a baby for nine months! Sometimes what feels like ovary pain can be something else entirely. It can be easy to confuse pain in your reproductive organs with other pelvic or abdominal pains. Some other causes of this pain could be constipation, urinary tract infection, kidney stones or even appendicitis.

Any unusual or extreme pain in the lower abdomen, pelvic area, ovaries, or vaginal area should be reported to your physician immediately. If you know you are pregnant and experience ovary pain in the first trimester you should call your doctor, as this pain can be a sign of ectopic pregnancy.
