    Hello the pain in the lower abdomen may be due to any of the structures there, this may be the appendix which may imply appendicitis or an infection of other structures. The pain in the leg may or may not be related. You have to see a doctor for proper review and if necessary a scan.

    ok Sir. I'm a little confused coz I was made to believe appendix occurs on the left hand side. And could this be a possible sign of pregnancy? Because I have been trying to convince although I took a home test which showed negative today.

    Hello, the appendix is on the right not the left. Like I said it may be an infection. I will advice you do a scan, this will answer the questions. If there's a pregnancy there will be signs in the scan though pregnancy is unlikely.

    Thank you sir. I'm sorry I miss guided u earlier. the pain is on my left not right side.

    No problem. That rules out the appendix but you still need to do a scan you know the fallopian tubes are in both the left and right side so one still needs to rule out an infection.

    Hello, you have to know when you ovulate and have frequent unprotected sex with your husband during this period. It is after one year of trying one can begin investigations and tests.

    Good day sir. I have gone for the scan as u recommended. The result read Right follicular cyst.

    Hello, the cyst should not be a problem. Women of reproductive age have it. However the scan shows possibility of an infection (pelvic inflammatory disease). Are you having vaginal discharge?

    OK Doc. Yes I do have discharge. Although it's not a regular thing. So what's my best treatment option? This is what the doctor prescribed and I'm not very satisfied.

    Yes but HVS result will be ready in 3days. it is advisable to begin with this drugs or I should await the hvs result. Can I get the same drugs for my husband too? just in case he's infected too?

    Hello, you can start as prescribed by the doctor. Your husband may need treatment too but that will be under prescription (he needs to see the doctor with you).

    OK sir. please what causes the cyst, what's the implication and how I prevent a future re-occurrence? Thank you.

    Hello, the cyst occurs when the egg is not released from the follicle ( the follicle releases the egg), it occurs commonly and should resolve in a few weeks without any untoward effect.
