Hi Ive just found out im pregnant and have had really sore right ovary. It hurts when i stand up, sit down, bend over, pee, poo, fart,sneeze, lift things ect. The pain is always there and gets worse when i move things. I have a doctors appt thur and im definately going to mention this but im worried its not normal and that its etopic pregnancy or ive done major nerve damage to my groin or its a cyst on my ovary.

any advice would be good
thanks

Hi, I had this with my first pregnancy. Dr described it as "round ligament pain" It was SO painful. Not if I was sitting down or anything, but like you described, if I stood up after sitting, sneezing, coughing, would all make my left side, sometimes right, hurt so bad! It was so severe I was convinced I was having a miscarriage. Your post was a few years ago, but hoping this might help someone else!

This is very helpful and insightful. Thank you so much for sharing. There are some points that I just did not know.

To everyone who has had an ectopic, is it still possible to have an ectopic pregnancy if I have high hcg levels?

What do you mean by high?
By the time my hcg was 2k we knew it was ectopic. It had also ruptured.

Years ago, (1987 to be exact) I had an ectopic pregnancy that ruptured at 21 weeks. This was in the days before routine ultrasound scans, and there was no reason to think it was anything other than a normal pregnancy, complete with morning sickness.
The day it ruptured, I had mild pressure pain in my lower abdomen for most of the day (like wind that wouldn't pass), which got worse all of a sudden to the point I fainted.

Up until that point, there was no indication that there was anything wrong with the pregnancy, I'd even heard the heartbeat the week before. I already had two children, then went on to have two more afterwards.

Hope you don't mind me asking you but this wasn't an ectopic in your tube was it ?
Must have been terrible for you :(

Yes to both (tubal, and terrible). At the time (and I didn't know this until weeks later) it was so incredibly rare that the surgeon photographed it and wrote an article for a medical journal.
It's a long and gory story, and I almost died but didn't, and despite being told I probably wouldn't have any more children, I did.

I just discovered mine was an ectopic at 9weeks & had my right tube removed 3 days ago. My journey from early bleeding to seeing sac on ultrasound, to HCG drop & empty uterus on ultrasound, to HCG increase & ectopic found 2 weeks after confirmed miscarriage..... is on this post http://www.essential...nancy-bleeding/

Hi ladies, I had an eptopic in 2016 on my right ovary - very unusual positioning. It wasn’t a planned pregnancy and we were using other means of contraception at the time, but I absolutely  knew that it was an eptopic - so strange!
My symptoms: - I had terrible pelvic and back pain where I couldn’t walk....as soon as I arrived at work, I turned around and took myself to the local hospital where they did a pregnancy test and confirmed my suspicion... The pain was unbearable and I was taken in for emergency surgery soon after and stayed for 9 days....All very lucky as I lost 1/3 of my blood through internal bleeding - no vagina blending at all or any of the standard eptopic symptoms. Pregnant again now from that very same ovary.

I am about 7 weeks post surgery for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy and salpingectomy. I didn't have any pregnancy symptoms, I even had a period a week before I started rupturing. I didn't notice any pregnancy symptoms but did have quite severe lower back and abdominal pain and then bloating from the internal bleeding. Now I'd advise anyone with any PV bleeding to go to a Dr straight away, even if you don't think you're pregnant as I was 7 weeks gestation and completely oblivious.

I have a dull ache in my back right on the inside of my hipbone on my right. I had an ectopic last year. I’ve had some bleeding bright red turns brown. No other symptoms except a little dull ache now and then left side front near pelvic bone. I have no idea if that’s ectopic or not! I can get to a dr till Friday.
My first ectopic was just instant massive cramps with no forwarding no bleeding nothing
