Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community for help.

A number of conditions ranging from cysts to tumor can cause ovarian pain.

Pain in the ovaries can either be acute or chronic. Acute ovarian pain comes on quickly,over a few minutes or days, and goes away in a short period of time. Chronic ovarian pain usually starts more gradually. Then it last for several months.

Ovarian pain may be continuous. Or it may come and go. It may get worse with certain activities, such as exercise or urination.

Pelvic pain may arise from your digestive, reproductive or urinary system. Recently, doctors have recognized that some pelvic pain, particularly chronic pelvic pain, may also arise from muscles and connective tissue (ligaments) in the structures of the pelvic floor. Occasionally, pelvic pain may be caused by irritation of nerves in the pelvis.

Anonymous, it would be wise to schedule an appointment with your physician. A physical exam, answering questions about the pain, and any necessary tests will help your doctor diagnose the cause of your pain.
