Have pain in right side and back. Had ovarian cysts removed. Another cyst possibility?

Hi , my husband and I are trying for our second baby. Currently no luck and due my period on the 23rd. I have been experiencing some very sharp pains in my right side and back since last month. I have experienced great pain in this area and unable to walk at times. i dont think i have all the symptoms of a kidney infection . I have a history of ovarian cysts and had one removed in 2009 (first child in 2010). Is it possible i may have another cyst? I am also very tired, experiencing migrains and have dull cramps and slight dark coloured discharge at the minute (8DPO) I m having such a mixture of symptoms I m left a little confused and anxious!

Hi, Thanks for your query, Ovarian cysts that can affect your fertility include:

Endometriomas. Endometriomas (en-doe-me-tree-OH-muhs) are cysts caused by endometriosis, a condition in which the tissue normally lining your uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus. These ovarian cysts may be associated with fertility problems.
Ovarian cysts resulting from polycystic ovary syndrome. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition marked by many small cysts in your ovaries, irregular periods and high levels of certain hormones. PCOS contributes to problems with fertility in some women.
Unless they become very large, these types of ovarian cysts don't affect fertility:

Functional cysts. Functional cysts — such as follicular cysts or corpus luteum cysts — are the most common type of ovarian cyst. Functional cysts form during a normal menstrual cycle and don't cause or contribute to infertility. In fact, functional cysts actually indicate that the necessary functions leading to fertility are taking place.
Cystadenomas. Cystadenomas (sis-tad-uh-NO-muhs) are growths in the ovary that arise from the surface of the ovaries. Although they need treatment, they don't affect fertility.
Dermoid cysts. These cysts contain tissue — such as skin, hair or even teeth — instead of fluid. Dermoid cysts aren't associated with infertility. REgards, Dr. Sharmila
