I'm a 20 year old female, no kids, no health problems that I know of, no allergies and I don't take any medications (took BC from age 13-17). Alright guys, let me sum this up for you, since June of this year, I have had extremely painful periods,to the point where my last one made me feel as though my appendix burst or I was in labour. I felt nauseous and like I had to make a bowl movement, the feeling of pushing down gave some slight relief, I was pale and clammy and almost fainted. This has been an on-going issue but I thought it was just painful menstruation. This past week I had pain which started where my right ovary is. The pain got amplified when I was have sexual intercourse, it was so bad I had to stop, and tell my fiance I was sorry but the pain was excruciating. Since then being (Saturday the 7th 2013) I have had a constant pain in my right ovary. I finally went to the ER on day five. And I was given a PAP test, blood work, pelvic exam and ultrasound. My PAP test results are either clean, or not back yet, the blood work was clean and normal, temperature was normal etc. My pelvic exam made me sick, the doctor rubbed my cervix and I cringed with pain, and he pushed on the right side of vagina, and towards the ovary and it hurt so bad I was crying. He then told me I could have endometriosis, or cysts. So the next day, being day 6, I went in for an ultrasound like he had suggested, and my ultrasound came back clean and inconclusive. So then the doctor accused me of faking it. I demanded a new doctor to figure out what was going on, so the new doctor took more blood and everything was normal and sent me for a CT scan and a CT contrast dye scan. When I got the results back, I was told everything was still clear, but there was fluid in my abdomen which appeared to be from a cyst. He wrote me a prescription for pain meds and that was all. I am still concerned, because I'm a medical student and abdominal fluid can mean cancer and other things, and pain for no reason is not a good thing. I am going to see my family doctor about getting tested for Ovarian cancer, as well as a test for endometriosis. And I may get referred to a Gyno to get a second opinion on my results from the ER. Has anyone else dealt with this before? And if so what was it and what happened? Thank you guys! Sorry for any typos, I'm typing on my Iphone.
