Hey everyone! I am new to this board as I just found it tonight. I have been reading through a lot of your posts and it's helping me relax while I wait for an ultrasound this week.
I am on a birth control that makes me have 1 period everyone 3 months because ever since I hit puberty I always had very painful periods. I am 24 now turning 25 this upcoming April.
My last two menstrual cycles have been extremely painful. One day before my period and the 1st day of my period, I get this sharp stabbing cramp/pain on my left side where my ovary is.
My last period which was 3 weeks ago was the worst period I think I've ever had. It was light/medium like it always is but the pain had me in tears. I almost passed out and I couldn't hold anything down, so I couldn't eat or drink anything other than water.
I went to my doctor yesterday because ever since my last period I have had some discomfort and light cramps there. I also have this full filling there as well.
I don't have a lot of pain but it does hurt from time to time and she said it definitely sounds like a cyst and I have an ultrasound scheduled for this upcoming Friday.
I'm pretty nervous and it sounds like when ovarian cysts give women trouble that it's likely they may need surgery.
I have the worst anxiety towards not knowing right now and then the emotional aspect to it is also killing me. I just keep thinking worse case scenario and it doesn't help that I do suffer from anxiety and things like this just make me worry 24/7.
I tend to find the only thing that helps the pain is my heating pad and taking really hot baths. It's to the point where I always have to take my heating pad to work with me.
I would love to know if any of you have felt this type of pain/discomfort or any words of wisdom!
