Extreme pain in ovary
I have been experiencing pain in my left ovary ever since my baby was born in Feb this year. At my 6 week check up dr said it is ok to have a bit of pain and discomfort after delivering as all the bits needs to go back to their places.

Problem is - its been 6 months and the pain is just gettin worse - and its only my left ovary. In the evening it seems like the pain peeks and its really it very bad, during the day its like a dull pain - almost like a stretched muscle kind of pain.

I doubt that its ovulation because I am on depoprovera (and its consistantly on the one side - ovulation change sides)

What should I do?

It may not be your ovary. It could be bowel or bladder. I would suggest that you see a doctor for a full history. A scan and some blood tests would also be useful.
