During sex this morning, I suddenly felt a sharp pain creeping into my abdominal area, and five seconds later I was curled up in the fetal position unable to move. It hurt really, really bad — unlike anything I've ever felt. Three hours later, I finally am getting out of bed, and though it still hurts, it's now been reduced to normal menstrual cramp type pain.
My first thought was that I had an ovarian cyst that I didn't know about it, and that it just ruptured. It was DEFINITELY in the area of my uterus, and so I don't think it's kidney-related. I google-searched a lot this morning to try to pinpoint what this could be an whether or not I should call my doctor, but I couldn't find anything conclusive. I'm not having fever, nausea, dizziness, or anything like that.
I don't think it was just your average pain-during-sex occurrence because of the severity. I just have also never had a cyst or anything else that would cause this, so I don't really have a reference point. So, I suppose my questions are these:
- Does that sound like a cyst rupture?
- Does it sound like something else?
- Should I call my doctor even though my pain is dwindling and I have no other symptoms?
