Possibly an Ovarian Cyst

Patient

Q: I have been having sharp pains in my lower left side on and off for the past month and a half. Sometimes it also moves the right side, but that is rather unusual. I am thinking that it is an ovarian cyst but I am not positive. I have been having acne worse than normal lately. I am on birth control, but right before I began having these issues (about two months ago) I switched times of birth control so it may just be my body still adjusting to that. The week after I switched birth control times I was fooling around with a boy and he came on me and I felt myself to check if I was bleeding down below after that so I got nervous I somehow got pregnant (I know I am a worry-wort). I have never had full on sexual intercourse though. I took a couple pregnancy tests because I was nervous about why my body was freaking out so much and they all came back negative. I went to the doctor and did not voice my concerns about being pregnant since I had already taken about four pregnancy tests, but she felt around and said she did not feel anything abnormal but to go get an ultrasound during my winter break. Please help!
