Thanks for posting your query.
A very sharp pain in the area of left ovary could be due to one of the following conditions:-

1. Endometriosis, ovulatory pain, Ectopic pregnancy.
2. Ovarian cyst with or without rupture or torsion, pelvic inflammatory disease.
3. Any pelvic infection related to the intestines or colon (Enteritis Or Colitis).

You might benefit by visiting the Emergency Room so that you can be evaluated with a panel of blood tests and a ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis OR a CT scan to diagnose the underlying condition and initiate necessary interventions for proper treatment.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Thanks for writing again.
The pain you have can be due to any of the above mentioned causes. It is best to attend an ER and get yourself properly evaluated.
If it is mild in nature then you may try an over the counter antispasmodic for relief.
Hope my answer is helpful.
