| | slight abdominal pain on right side.
about a month ago, i began to get a slight pain in my right side. it is barely noticeable, and is actually more a sensation of heaviness or fullness. but, it is constant. when i press on my stomach/pelvis, there is no tenderness or sore spots. i have also started to get lower back pain in the right side, still nothing severe. if my calculations are correct, the ab pain started about 10 days before i began my last period, and never left.
my periods are very regular, and i have no bleeding outside of my period. i have no abnormal vaginal secretions, no burning, itching, tenderness or anything.
i don't have any gastrointestinal problems either--no nausea, vomitting, diarheaa, weight loss or constipation. no fever either, for what it's worth.
i am 22 years old, sexually active, but in a monagomous relationship and have never, ever had sex without using a condom. i have never been on bc pills, either.
does anyone have any advice as to what this might be? i don't have health insurance and no disposable income at the moment for a doctor's visit. the pain is practically negliable; i was waiting around for it to "do something, already" before i went to the doctor's. i am still waiting, but was just wondering if anyone had similiar experiences or suggestions?
i have read up on ovarian cysts, and it sounds like a possibility.... i just don't think that it could be an std, or infection. ugh.
