Ovary pain?? Is this part of it?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone suffer from ovarian pain because of herpes? I’m starting to worry I have something else going on. I keep getting aches on both sides of my lower abdomen & I feel full. If I squeeze my thighs together it’s uncomfortable & feels like I’m squeezing my ovaries together but I have no sores or signs of an outbreak. I was diagnosed with BV at the same time as H, could that have something to do with it? I wasn’t treated for BV- they just gave me anti-vitals. I really don’t have the resources to go to the gynecologist  for a full exam to know exactly what is going on so I figured I would see if anyone had a similar experience. Thanks!

I was also diagnosed with BV as well as the Herpes (HSV1). They only gave me antivirals. I am currently dealing with an itch, no odor, watery discharge. I thought I was having another outbreak but I took Valtrex again, but 2 days later and I still have this itch. I believe that this may be the BV that never was treated cause it has been over a month since I was diagnosed with both BV and the Herpes.  I am no doctor unfortunately, so I am going to be making an appointment to go back to the gyno.  I did call and they told me to take monistat but I absolutely refuse because the last time I took that it felt like a fire down there. Plus, I do not want to take monistat if I do not know what it is exactly. As you may know BV and yeast infections are treated with completely different medications.  I will follow up with you after my visit, unfortunately if it is BV you will need a doctor to give you a prescription for antibiotics. It does however sound like BV cause of the pain in your abdomen. Maybe also try a probiotic, I just started taking one just to help myself out down there.

@Emd44Thank you! You are smart-Why would they say get monstat if BV is cause by completely different bacteria & needs different medication. I am going to pick up some probiotics today...I think now that I have left it untreated for so long it has turned into pelvic inflammatory disease after researching  😕 please update me after your doctors appointment. I will now need to search for one.

Oh gosh what kind of doctor are you guys going to??? Monistat doesn't treat BV. Most of the time I think BV just runs its course. I didn't have the money for antibiotics one time and it eventually went away, but I think that's kind of a dice roll because it can also get worse. I've never had ovarian pain from either BV or herpes but I have had issues with cysts. They are usually harmless (we all have cysts on our ovaries that come and go but sometimes I can feel them). I take a high estrogen birth control that controls that. If it's persistent and causing you a LOT of pain you really need to get an ultrasound.
