Pain In The Left Lower Abdomen During Menstruation In PCOS Sufferers?
Good night, I have a PCOS cyst, I think, it’s been around 6 years on the left. And the last 1 year my period almost every month and rarely feel great pain. and on 10-13 this month, my period did not feel pain, but from yesterday to today I felt very painful in my left lower abdomen. Why do you think? And what should I do?
Thank you for the question.
PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) can indeed cause sufferers to experience pain in the left lower abdomen as you experience. Not only that, if not handled properly, PCOS can also cause menstrual patterns and fertility is also disrupted. However, it should be understood, that pain in the lower left abdomen actually can not only arise because of PCOS. Various other factors, including muscle pain, intestinal inflammation, ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis, pelvic inflammation, pre menstrual syndrome, intestinal obstruction, hernias, malabsorption or food allergies, poisoning, digestive infections, digestive infections, urinary tract infections, fibromyalgia, psychological disorders, inflammation joints, nerve nerves, and so on can also cause pain in the left lower abdomen.
Making a diagnosis of exactly what causes pain in the lower abdomen as you experience it is sometimes enough to do with interviews and physical examination. However, if the pain that arises is very severe, then the doctor will probably also direct you to undergo additional examinations, such as x-rays, ultrasound, urine tests, and so on.
The question now, besides pain, are there any other complaints that you are experiencing?
If the pain that arises can still be arrested, and also no other complaints appear more severe, then the following handling steps you can take to improve your complaints:
Compress warm stomach aches, do not carelessly massage and massage
Don't overdo heavy lifting and do other excessive physical activity
Wear clothes and comfortable footwear during your activities
Eat small portions but often, prioritize foods that are easily digested and do not irritate the intestine, drink more warm water

However, if the steps above have not been able to resolve your complaint, we recommend that you go directly to your doctor or an internist in order to provide the best solution according to the cause, yes. referred to an obstetrician.
I hope this helps.
