Hi,

The possible causes of your pain are:
- In case if you are having multiple cysts in right ovary with enlarged size there is possibility of pain due to that.
- Adhesions due to previous surgeries can also lead to pain. Usually minimal amount of pain can be treated with antispasmodic drugs.

In case of small sized cysts low dose hormonal pills can help in decreasing the size, if you are not having medical complications like diabetes, hypertension, tendency for coagulation abnormalities, etc. If pain still persists, you can go for diagnostic laparoscopy to find out the possible cause of the problem, in case of adhesions, that can be relieved in the same sitting.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sree Gouri S. R., OBGYN
