Left Ovary pain

Hi, I've been experiencing left ovarian pain for 2 days now. Yesterday I woke up with lower back pain and what seemed like menstrual cramps. I thought I was just getting my period because I was due for it yesterday. However, I didn't start my period and the menstrual cramps seemed to get better but then I started experiencing the left ovarian pain instead. My husband and I have been TTC for 15 months now.. I did a pregnancy test yesterday and it came back negative. My temperatures have been low for 4 days now, and no period yet. Could this be an ovarian cyst or maybe an ectopic pregnancy?? Please help!

Since your pain has come on suddenly, I think it is a good idea to call your doctor and get it checked out.  Yes...both an ovarian cyst or an ectopic pregnancy could cause pain.  Sometimes, though, it ends up being nothing serious and can never be explained.  But, you can't take a chance on letting something go that could be fixed by finding it early (like an ectopic pregnancy).   Sometimes pregnancy tests don't register as early as expected even though you are in fact pregnant.   That would be a nice surprise! :)  I hope you feel better soon!

I suppose it could be either, but I would definitely see a gyno soon. Cysts can act up anytime, but usually they are 'fed' by period hormones and act up worse around that time. Sorry if that's not much of an answer but that's not something that seems to be clearing up.
