Ovary twinge/mild pain


Hi ladies my left ovary seems to occasionally let me know its there. It started last summer and its not painful but perhaps the mildest pain you can experience. Sort of a pulse or a stabbing sensation.

I mentioned it to my dr when i was going about my iron levels last year and she barely acknowledged what i said. Im now 4 weeks pregnant and for 3 days on and off the sensation is there.

Should i be concerned and phone the dr tomorrow or is this just normal? If it was something sinister like a growth it surely would be consistent not just random days?

During the first trimester, it's actually very common, even if you didn't feel it before. The cyst on the corpus luteum that would have died off as your period started has to stay alive to support the embryo. Once you transition to the fetal stage, it may or may not disappear. I was getting those twinges daily for most of the first trimester, but it's been gone for a couple weeks now.

Thank you. I take it that it cant cause a mc? I feel abit more reassured now. Hopefully it will go soon.

I had these twinges during the first few weeks to was treated as a pregnancy of an unknown location but after a scan little bean was there with a HB flickering away . She's now 16 months old !

Like PP said and I've subsequently found out it can be completely normal just keep an eye on it and if it gets worse maybe get a early reassurance scan . Congratulations!

Yeah, this is soooo normal. The corpus luteum is not harmful. In fact, the corpus luteum is quite necessary, as it produces the progesterone needed to sustain the pregnancy until the placenta produces its own (at 9-12 weeks along). It just produces twinges and pains for some of us when we're pregnant. When we reach that 9-12 week along period when our placentas take over, the corpus luteum will usually reabsorb into your body, and we won't get any more pain from it. Sometimes, it will turn into a cyst after that point instead of reabsorbing (not harmful, but painful), but that's rare.

Thank you so much. I never knew this with my dd so its a little new. I reconise some of the other twinges etc. thanks for sharing with me. The first trimester is definitely the hard bit xx
