Ovarian cyst or something else? Watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    So I'm a bit worried that I might have an ovarian cyst or something else wrong with me. I'm 19 & was diagnosed with PCOS about 2 years ago but nothing was done I was just told to loose weight which I have & my periods have become regular (but started the pill last month anyway).

    Anyway, I have abdominal & pelvic pains sometimes..they were really bad about 2 months ago, I thought it was just the PCOS. Also, about 4 months ago I had sex & it hurt afterwards which I've never had before...then I realized that my cervix was really low & has been since then (about an inch in). 2 months ago I went for an STI check & the nurse confirmed that my cervix was quite low but looked normal & the pains could be mittelschmerz . She said if it continued I should go to my gp for a check because it's unusual for someone my age & for peace of mind. (I have sex regularly now & it can be a bit uncomfortable sometimes but doesn't hurt, I presume because of the low cervix). Also, recently I've noticed that I feel full all the time (although I know when my body is hungry because I get the shakes when I am) & the bottom of my stomach sticks out a bit like I'm bloated. I've taken the morning after pill three times in the last 9 months but don't know if that's relevant (trying to give as much info as I can!).

    I've been planning to go to my GP but just haven't had time & they only do on the day bookings & it's half an hour away from me. I will go soon though. I just want some answers in the meantime. Could it be an ovarian cyst or something else?

    I'm not sure of the symptoms of a cyst other than pain, but I think that a simple ultrasound scan can usually pick one up. If you go to your GP they will most probably refer you to get an ultrasound, so you can find out for sure. Don't put it off!
