AF and ovaries hurting?

Hey ladies - so I started my period on Thursday. It's been a rough cycle already. I cramped very bad this time around. (last month was my first on fertility treatment).

Usually after I start the menstrual cramps subside. But not this time. They've gotten slightly better however today my ovaries - especially my right one - are in a LOT of pain. So much so that I've been in bed all day.

In October I had my second surgery for endometriosis and I also had ruptured cysts. I'm wondering if I have another cysts or if it's just my period or the meds? I take estrodiol cycle days 7-12 to help me ovulate. Last month was my first to take them and they do make my ovaries hurt while I'm ovulating. Since I'm on my period I wouldnt think I'd be ovulating? I don't take the estrodiol for a few more days so I don't know what's up.

Has anyone experienced this?

ugh, that is frustrating. I'm sorry you are having so much trouble. I know endometriosis can give you pain in many places. I don't know if it's that or something else troubling you now. Hopefully this is your last AF for a while and you won't have to worry about it again. ;-)

Thank you:). The endometriosis causes back pain more than anything else. I've never had pain like this in my ovaries! Even when I had the cysts (which I didn't know about til I had surgery last).
