I am 42 years old. I have always had painless periods my entire life until the last 4 months. On day 2 of my period, I have bad pain in my lower left side. It hurts to move and is painful if you press on my side. Day 3 and 4 and so on the pain slowly subsides and disappears until my next period. I had a vaginal ultrasound done at the end of my period last month that showed nothing other than a very small fibriod. My Dr said he didn't believe that was the cause of my pain. But I left with no answers. Blood work is normal and he also tested my thyroid functions and those were also normal. I can live with this pain but just concerned because it's new and would like to find the cause.

My wife has had these sharp pains in her vagina and uterus

My wife has had these sharp pains in her vagina and uterus area and it has been going on, at complete random, for about 2 years now. They make her unable to move from the fetal position and last about an hour. Doctors have told her it could be anywhere from ovulation cramps to cysts popping in her uterus and that there's nothing they can do about it. I find this very had to believe considering the medicine advancements out there. What could be the real issue?

I am 53 i have 3 fibroids last few years, i had no

I am 53 i have 3 fibroids for the last few years, i had no problems but on march 23 i started my period and it was basically normal then after 2 days i started bleeding heavily, with clots and not hemorrhaging but real heavy.. i consulted my ob i had a new ultrasound done which showed i still had 3 fibroids and they were small as in the previous u/s 1 year prior. I was going on vacation and i asked my ob to prescribe provera to stop the bleeding. I bled for 15 days and it stopped on its own a few days before went on vacation. I held off on taking the proverb and a few days later i saw a tint of blood so i took the meds fro 5 days. I came back after 12 days of nation on april 30 and on may 2 I started my period as usual and again on day 2 i started to bleed heavy and the last 2 days is really much less like is going to stop. I need an opinion because my ob wants to do laparoscopic surgery and I am not sure this is necessary. FYI i did not have my period for 2 years straight but once it returned i have had normal periods for 6 years until last month.

My periods are irregular... But not too irregular. They usually begin around the 23rd or after of each month... My husband and I had sex April 13th (unprotected) & I started bleeding April 15th... I'm also cramping & have slight breast tenderness... I've also been in & out of the hospital due to pelvic pain since the end of last year & had a laparoscopy back in January... Found out I have severe bladder/uterus adhesion (due to c-section after our first child) & multiple fibrods... We are wondering if there is a possibility of me being pregnant? I haven't taken a test yet because it's only 3 days after sex, but my menstruation is a week early? I'm scared, we want another baby, but my docs have been saying it may be difficult to become pregnant... Please help us! Thank you.

I am 37 years old, and I have had an ectopic last year,

Hi, I am 37 years old, and I have had an ectopic last year, in June. I got an hycosy done last month and the results looked fine. Another doctor now suggests that since my one blood test seemed high, (not sure which one it was), he thinks my tube is useless. And that I should have done a laproscopy. Can I possibly have a conversation with you?Thanks!!

I've been diagnosed with an 9cm cyst on my right ovary. I haven't really had any symptoms and wasn't even aware it was there until a pelvic exam was performed.I'm really worried about this affecting the functions of the ovary and leading to infertility. My periods and ovulations had been very regular until a month prior to the diagnosis.Also, what are the changes that this ovary has gone gangrene and I'm just not exhibiting any symptoms?

I am a 48 year old post menopausal woman. It's been a

Hello I am a 48 year old post menopausal woman. It's been a little over a year since I've had a period. My naturopath did some hormone testing and said I have adrenal fatigue. She put me on a natural supplement that contained porcine adrenal gland complex. About 2 weeks after I started I had a light period and became alarmed. She said it was likely the supplement and not to worry. I then had a trans vaginal ultrasound which found a 3 cm cyst on my ovary. The report said it was likely a complex cyst with a main differential between a hemorrhagic cyst a demoid cyst or an endometrioma. The cul de sac normal no free pelvic fluid. Since this was not seen on the ultrasound I had done a year prior it stated I need to have another one in 10 weeks. I'm worried sick. The radiologist seems to have no clue what this is. Any thoughts to ease my mind?

There, we've been trying to conceive past 4 months.

Hi there, we've been trying to conceive for the past 4 months. I've been using both a Clearblue Fertility monitor and temping for the past 12 months or so (even before trying to conceive). So far, I've gotten Peak readings and my temps look normal.The past 2 months after officially trying, I noticed my monitor no longer had Peak readings. My temps last month also did not look normal. For these reasons, I went to my OBGYN to get checked and they found an 8cm cyst on my right ovary through ultrasound. I aslo did a blood test with no results yet. According to the doctor, the cyst is full of fluid. I'm scheduled for another u/s next week to check blood flow to the uterus. I was told to be careful to avoid rupture and twisting. I have no symptoms other random, very, very faint cramps/twinges - but very faint, not enough to make me stop what I'm doing.I'm really nervous. What are the chances that there no longer is blood flow to the ovary without exhibiting any symptoms (no real pain, discomfort, or whatsoever)? I'm worried that the ovary has “long been dead” and I just didn't know it? Because the doctor kept asking if I was in pain so maybe it already has been twisted?I'm also concerned about ovarian cancer?
