Pain in lower abdomen a week before period due.
« on: June 03, 2014, 12:18:03 PM »
So over the last 24 hours I've began to get a sharp stabbing pain on the right side of my lower abdomen. It's not all the time but it just suddenly starts and is there for a while then goes away. My period is due around next week so could it just be that or someone more serious? Starting to worry me now :(

I'd put it down to periods
Because I have health anxiety I always think my pains are worse than last time, but I think it's a fact of life that sometimes we get unexplainable pains

You may be ovulating late. Do you know when in your cycle you ovulate? Sometimes women ovulate right after their period, sometimes in the middle (average) and sometimes late, just before their period. You may just be ovulating late. If you had appendicitis you would KNOW! You'd have severe pain, a high fever, and vomitting. Don't worry about appendicitis. You're either ovulating late, or you could just be experiencing different symptoms of PMS. Are you bloated? Sometimes PMS brings about pains in and of itself. Not to worry. Try a heating pad, a warm bath, ect.

Also, is there any possibility of pregnancy? If you "could" be pregnant - you may want to take a test. Sometimes in early pregnancy women experience round ligament pain that can extend up to the ovaries. This is normal. If, however, you have a positive pregnancy test and experience any bleeding or spotting along with this type of pain, you might want to call your doctor or head to the emergency room. While this can be normal, sometimes it's indicative of an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, where a fertilized egg implants into the fallopian tube rather than the uterus. That is always an emergency - but if there is no possibility of pregnancy, or if you don't have a positive pregnancy test, you have nothing to worry about.

Yes I might try a hot water bottle or something hot!! I'm not in severe pain it's just maybe every little while I get this sharp pain but it's only there for about 2 seconds then goes,so it's probably nothing but I'm hoping it will be away by tomorrow!! X

You don't have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you.

I have had this problem and I am prone to ovarian cysts. They are harmless and pretty much go away on their own. I can usually tell when I have one because I get sharp pains in my interior women bits during ovulation. When I first got one I ended up in the ER with all the docs convinced I had appendicitis. They did a CT and realized cysts were the issue. Sent me home with some pain meds and the stupid thing was resolved a week later. They can be pretty painful though. Hang in there!!
