Abdominal pain

For the last 2 weeks I have had pain where I would imagine my ovaries are (in the middle of my abdomen on each side). It happened the day after I had sex with my husband and it is continuing. We have had sex since its been hurting, but it will hurt during the day outside of sex. I can be sitting at my desk and start to get the pain. It doesn't last all the time, but every once in a while (quite a few times/day) its there. Also, during this time period my breasts have been very sore/tender.

I have also had weird digestive things happening. I had nausea for a couple of days and now my BM are not normal. Could all this be caused by stress/poor diet? I'm currently on birth control (the pill), and I have been for 9 years. It is a low estrogen pill. Last month my period was really short, it only lasted a day but I did bleed.

I'm just trying to figure out what all of this could be so that I can try to fix it. I really don't think I'm pregnant. Do you think any of this is worth a trip to my doctor? or do you think they'll just go away?

Thanks, Erin

Dear Erin,

I'm not sure what is going on. If you are faithfully taking the Pill, it is unlikely to be pregnancy or ovarian cysts. It is possible that you have an infection, but many infections are accompanies by fever. If it persists, you should definitely talk it over with your doctor. He or she may want to examine you.
