Tired of hearing about my pelvis? Join the club.

I've been having pain in my lower left side for about two weeks now — I'm pretty sure it's my ovary, since my intestines are behaving impeccably as usual and I don't recall storing any other organs in the vicinity. It hurts when I bear down or bend; sometimes the jolt of my footsteps as I walk can set it off, too.

My ectopic was on the opposite side, so we can rule out lingering irritation from that, I think. My doctor optimistically suggests that it's just ovulation starting up again. I'd like to believe that, though it seems strange that the pain would have lasted so long. My fear is that the endometrioma on that ovary is planning a bloody coup. I have radioed for help from neighboring countries and will hole up in my bunker until reinforcements arrive.
