I’ve noticed that a few hours after BDing I get pains around my right ovary. I’m not 100% sure but I think it’s always the right.
Looking it up it is possible that it could be a cyst – I have PCOS, but if this is the case then why does it happen so many hours post BD?
It’s not too painful, like mild ovulation dull ache.
Does anyone get this or know what it could be?

@Indianinerniner: Does it happen every single time you BD? And you don’t have to answer if it’s Too Much Information, but what’s your BD frequency? How long has it been happening?

We BD every other day or 3 times per week on average. I don’t think it’s every time but enough now for me to notice a distinct correlation.
I’m not sure how long it’s been going on for, I’ve only noticed it the past few months but I have become much more aware of everything since charting.
In the past I noticed that I would get random ‘period cramps’ at various points in my cycle and always put it down to my PCOS but never made the connection between that and intercourse.
I has an ultrasound last year to check my ovaries and uterus and nothing was flagged up other than the usual’string of pearls’ appearance due to PCOS. I also had a normal pap test.

I had this a few times and it sucked. An US came back negative, no cysts. We stopped using latex condoms and it hasn’t happened again. The Dr was clueless and couldn’t help me, I found out on my own that I’m mildly allergic to latex. Try switching up lube, condoms, positions, etc and see if anything makes it go away.

@michiru4ever: Wow, never thought about a latex allergy! I’m glad you figured it out.
@Indianinerniner: I’m not 100% familiar with PCOS since I don’t have it but I have had many cysts over the last 20 years. Mine get fairly big and there is only 1 at a time. As I get older I’ve become very in tune w/my body and know when I have one.
I think the hormones feed them…and mine grow within a few months. If you had an U/S last year, there’s a good chance you could have gotten a cyst since then. I’m a pro at this and usually just call my doc, schedule an appt. for an U/S b/c of a possible cyst, go in and sure enough they find one. I’ve been unfortunate to have them “burst” on me a couple of times and it usually results in an ER visit.
Since you posted this on the TTC board, I’m assuming you are…I’d def. make an appt if you can b/c if it’s a large enough cyst or a cleverly placed one, it might interfere w/the TTC.
