Ovarian pain - Definition

February 2017


Definition


Ovarian pain is clinically manifested by lower abdominal pain in a woman called pelvic pain. In the case of pelvic pain in women of childbearing age, an ectopic pregnancy should be investigated through a blood test and an ultrasound. Other pelvic pain may originate from any genital or urinary organ and it is impossible to say without a diagnosis which organ is causing the symptoms. An ultrasound is necessary to identify the cause. Ovarian pain itself may come from a torsion occurring at an ovarian cyst or cystic bleeding producing a sharp pain on one side of the belly.
