This answer was rated:

It's been 3 weeks since my d&c and I have had unprotected sex although he did not ejeculate in me. I feel pain and hotness in my lower right side of my stomach... Do I have an infection? Also, I had bronchitis and fevers after my d&c I'm not sure why I got sick but I am worried.

Customer: Ok
Dr. P Jyoti :

hello

Dr. P Jyoti :

do you have any fever?

Customer: Not right now
Dr. P Jyoti :

this doesnt sound like an infection yet

Customer: I'm scared I had a d&c because of an abnormal pregnancy I don't want to be pregnant I know I wasn't being responsible a week ago and had unprotected sex
Dr. P Jyoti :

but there can be some collection etc

Dr. P Jyoti :

thats right, you shouldnt have had unprotected sex

Dr. P Jyoti :

but pregnancy is unlikely so soon

Dr. P Jyoti :

symptoms are not of pregnancy

Dr. P Jyoti :

best to get this checked up by your doctor

Dr. P Jyoti :

there may be some collection

Dr. P Jyoti :

this may also be something unconnected like appendicitis

Customer: I live on Kauai doctor appointment take a long time tongrt
Customer: *to get
Dr. P Jyoti :

considering your age and pain on the right lower side appendicitis is a possibility

Dr. P Jyoti :

in that case you can consider going to the ER

Dr. P Jyoti :

specially if symptoms become more severe

Customer: It's really low pain
Dr. P Jyoti :

for now take a lot of fluids

Dr. P Jyoti :

also take high fiber diet - lots of vegetables and fruits

Dr. P Jyoti :

take small and frequent meals

Customer: can an infection damage my uterus?
Dr. P Jyoti :

as likely as not this is just a colitis and this will get it done

Dr. P Jyoti :

no, it wont, dont worry

Customer: i do feel hot but not fever yet
Dr. P Jyoti :

it is more likely to be from the intestines

Dr. P Jyoti :

for now try with this change of diet

Dr. P Jyoti :

this is likely to do it

Dr. P Jyoti :

however if symptoms persist or get more severe go to the ER since doctor's appointment is difficult

Customer: Ok thank you my biggest fear was pregnancy or infection
Customer: also I a lot of cyst
Dr. P Jyoti :

well, neither of them seems likely at this stage

Dr. P Jyoti :

more likely something to do with GIT

ovarian cyst can also cause this pain sometimes

remember to go to the ER immediately for any severe symptoms

Dr. P Jyoti :

any further questions?

Customer: could I get one so quick after a d&c? They said the d&c would make the cyst go away also
Dr. P Jyoti :

not always

Dr. P Jyoti :

some types of cyst will go away but not all

Dr. P Jyoti :

i guess you had a follicular cyst

Customer: My cyst was on my left pain is on my right
Dr. P Jyoti :

follicular cysts will usually go away with d&c

Dr. P Jyoti :

in that case the cyst is not connected to the pain

Customer: Yes actually two on my left ovary
Dr. P Jyoti :

it sounds like a intestinal pain to me

Dr. P Jyoti :

thats why my opinion is that a good fiber diet and fluids should make it go away

Dr. P Jyoti :

try it for now

Dr. P Jyoti :

but if it persists or gets severe go to the ER
