Dr. K. :

Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

A heavy feeling on the left side is a very vague symptom

Dr. K. :

Its more likely related to your bowels or function than your ovaries at all.

Dr. K. :

Symptoms of polycystic ovaries include irregular or infrequent menstrual cycles, obesity, and abnormal hair growth.

Dr. K. :

Unfortunately your biggest barrier is your age since fertility declines after age 35. Most women who are 35 though do get pregnant.

Dr. K. :

I am copying and pasting the beginning of my answer since the system says there may be an error

I get a burning sensation like as if a hot water bottle is in there at times and it can appear sore. I've had all the pregnancy symptoms as me and my bf are trying. Plus bloated.

JACUSTOMER-u1nkqsua- :

Im eating veg every day, shouldn't this help the heavy feeing I have on my left lower abdomen

Dr. K. :

Yes eating well should help You shouldnt pay attention to what you feel are pregnancy symptoms. If you feel you may be pregnant, do a home test
