Strange pain in my right side?

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
My period was due yesterday but, as yet, no sign. We have been TTC since a miscarriage last November so it's beginning to get a bit upsetting. I had a terrible stitch like pain on my right side on Sunday afternoon which I thought could be an odd period pain but nothing since. I usually have a very regular 28 day cycle so I'm wondering whether anyone knows what the stitch could have been??

I know I'm clutching at straws but I'm so hoping to be pregnant! I don't want to do a test yet as I feel it's too soon to waste another expensive pregnancy test!

Any opinions would be greatly received.

I get that now and again, and had it in my second pregnancy. Apparently I can get cysts, due to a lot of fluid around my ovaries, when I ovulate and it causes pain. They go away and come back. While I was pregnant instead of it going away, it got bigger because of all the growth hormones going on.

I'm not sure whether it's the same thing, but go to your dr and he/she may be able to tell you exactly what it is Smile

Well you don't need to worry for that pain because I've read somewhere that some other women can also feel this pain during their period or before that, it 's normal just try not to bend over much or not to carry heavy weight or just take healthy diet. You've mentioned that your cycle is good so you are on board just don't worry and don't stop TTC. Just try when you're ovulating that is a good way to go.

I think that is common, no? I'm saying because I used to have it when I was pregnant with my first child. However, you are right about the costs involved. The whole procedure is so expensive these days. It's better that instead of taking a test you discuss this with a physician. I have seen in most of the cases they are able to tell whassup. Anyway, this is not a recommended method. People should go to experts. It's the fee they charge that stops us, right?

Hello Lolly. I feel sorry for your miscarriage. What was the reason for miscarriage? Have you consulted the doctor regarding pain? I think you should consult a doctor. It might be something dangerous. I hope it is not anything harmful. However, you still need to cautious.

Hi LollyW. I hope to find you in the best of your health. I am sorry for your miscarriage. It is indeed a huge loss. The loss of a baby cannot be compensated. I don’t understand why a mother has to lose her child this way. It is quite depressing. Anyways, are you still feeling the pain? It could be a pre-period pain. However, if it is still there, you need to consult a doctor. As you have mentioned about your cycle, I don’t think there is anything wrong with you. Just don’t stop TTC. Increase TTC during ovulation days. It is not necessary that AF will come exactly on a date. They may take a day or two. I am not discouraging you but I do not want to give a false hope.

Hi there. Firstly, let me offer my condolences for your miscarriage. I'm sorry to hear that you haven't managed to conceive in nearly a year. I'm assuming you must be consulting a doctor too. Maybe the first MC caused scarring or problems. If yes, I hope they are easy to fix. Now, coming back to your question. The pain could simply be PMS. Or simply pre-period pain. Even the most regular cycles can fluctuate sometimes. I had a very regular cycle. AF always showed up on the 29th day. However, once it simply didn't come until the 33rd day. Later I realized that it was because I had travelled in the previous month. So, the change in food might have caused it.
