Please can someone give me some advice im so scared

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi there im 28 and have 4 children. My periods were regular 25-27 days monthly. I was due my period on the 19th of october and it didnt turn up i did a pregnancy test 2 days after it was due and it was negative. I then started the period on the 26th of october usually it last for 4-5 days with 3 days of heaviness then tapers down to brown /light for the last days. Im still bleeding and its 17 days since i started now its not once been as heavy it ususlly is and ive had no blood clots which i always do every period. I rang my dr. And he gave me antibiotics incase i had an infection . They didnt do nothing atall. So i then rang again monday the dr then prescribed me norethisterone to stop the bleeding . And said if it didnt stop i would need a scan . Well its day 3 of the norethisterone and im still bleeding. The bleeding has stayed the same the whole 17 days it goes from red one day to brown the next. I have had pain in my lower right back and over my ovary on a good few occasions and pain in my upper right thigh. The bleeding itself is not heavy and i do not fill even 1 pad a day there is a small amount (more when wiping) . Im totally and utterly terrorfied to be honest . I suffer severe health anxiety as it is so u can imagine my mind is now in overdrive with ovarian cancer or womb cancer . I had a clear smear test in march this year and to be called back in 3 years. All i have done for the past few days is cry my heart out im terrorfied its some kind of cancer and that im going to leave my beautiful children even typing that has brought tears to my eyea. Im so scared of having an ultrasound scan as im certain they will tell me its cancer . My partner is not atall supportive towards me and think im mad due to me thinking ive had all different types of deadly illnesses. My health anxiety started when my dad died suddenly and unexpectedly on december 1st last year. Im a very anxious person and this is making me so much worser i cant concentrate , im very bad tempered , keep bursing into tears . Im just wondering if anyone has had this?? If so what caused it ?? Do i need to be worried or am i being a total imbecile? Im so sorry about this post . I just cannot relax and just want to know what i could be dealing with . I will add i had a spell in my teenage years when i had to have 3 lots of ovarian cysts drained twice when i was 14 and another lot drained when i was 15 . At my ultrasound when i had my last baby i was told i had a fibroid and cyst on my ovary but that is coming up 2 years now .Thank u advance

    To start off I am not a medical professional of any kind and am only speaking from my own experience and that is all.

    Ovarian cysts can cause irregular bleeding and pain without being incredibly urgently serious. So no need to panic!

    That said it you really should see a specialist, sounds like your GP won't be much help. And get an ultrasound! The most likely outcome is that you have cyst that will go away on it's own or can be easy removed by a simple surgery. If it turns out to be more serious then you can deal with that, but the earlier the better for whatever it is. Your concern is completely justified.

    I lost an ovary because I refused to acknowledge the signs. Just get the tests and see, then you know your options.

    Im trying to think positive but the bleeding is making me think otherwise i had a mental breakdown when i had to have my smear test as i had symptoms of that but it came back perfectly normal . Im going to do another pregnancy test because im pretty sure i ovulated a week later than i should have so if i had of been pregnant when i took the test it wouldnt have shown up as i would have only been 3 weeks if that comes back negative then i will see how the bleeding goes and if it doesnt stop anymore then i will go back and see my dr hes in no rush atall to be honest

      If your Dr is in no rush that's probably a good sign. .tGPs aren't dummy's ( they just don't always know all the details)

      But if you're not pregnant and still having issues, get ultrasound. They suck and are not fun, I cried for hours the night before mine, because you feel like a piece of meat. But they're not painful and really are the best way to find out if you do have a cyst or growth or anything.

      I hope everything works out for you, I'm sure it will. Just don't shy away from the tests because you're afraid, that won't help anyone.

      Like I said before though I'm no medical professional, just offering my thoughts and support from personal experience.
