I am a 27 year old (nearly 28 year old) virgin who is Autistic and has severe anxiety. My doctor said that I probably have irritable bowel syndrome, or endometriosis. He said that I don't have ovarian cancer, or any reproductive cancers. I had a transabdominal ultrasound, where they found a very small questionable fibroid, but that was all. I have a severe phobia when it comes to having the transvaginal ultrasound, and so they couldn't do that even though it's supposed to be a better test than the transabdominal.
I experience terrifying symptoms. Pelvic pain, anal/rectal pain and pressure, vulvar pain, tenesmus, a lot of gas, sometimes nausea. There are days where I have a lot of stool, and it feels like I'm never finished with my bowel movements. I often get constipation and sometimes diarrhea. A lot of times I have solid stools that are frequent. I have solid stools multiple times a day sometimes. The feeling of needing to have a bowel movement goes away briefly after I pass a BM, but I still have gas and pain and the small relief doesn't last long.
My pelvic area feels like there's a lot of pain and pressure. It's mostly always my pelvic area that gives me the most trouble, and then if I lie in a certain position with my legs up to my pelvic area, it seems as though the pressure breaks up and then my stomach has obvious gas that moves and is able to be passed.
The feeling in my anal or rectal area is also like a pressure that causes me to clench and strain sometimes. It feels like something is stuck there, or that there's some sort of tension. My vulvar area gets a pressure-like pain sometimes that aches or burns or is difficult to describe.
Lately I've been having vaginal spotting, but only for a day or 2. It usually happens about 2 weeks before my period. For the last few times, it's been brown discharge, though this time it's pinkish-red. It's very alarming for me. I don't know if this is ovulation spotting, or something more serious.
I am overweight, about 190-200 lbs. I have hirsutism (chin hair growth) which I started getting in my early 20s. I have acne as well. I'm worried that I might have PCOS, and that maybe I have endometrial cancerbecause of it. I'm also worried about ovarian cancer or other reproductive cancers that virgins are capable of getting.
As for the hirsutism, the hair itself doesn't bother me the way it would for a lot of people, so I never regarded it as anything medically concerning until I started getting other symptoms.
When I was younger, during my preteen years, my periods used to be extremely heavy and sometimes would last up to 2 weeks. I remember there were times when I wasn't on my period when I would get pelvic pain that was severe and I would lie on the floor in agony. I'm not sure if this is related to anything that I have going on now. I still get heavy periods often where I have to use the thickest pads, and I have some blood clots usually, though the duration of my periods are about 5-7 days, generally.
Are there any professionals or anyone with expertise or experience who can tell me what might be wrong with me? I'm so afraid. I live with my Mom and she takes me to the doctor, but I don't know what else to do. I'm so terrified that I'm going to die from this. Please help me in any way that you can. Thank you so much.
