| | newbie-anxious about bleeding and pain after sex.
Hi, Im 34yr old, married with 2 children.
My problem started December 2009, with lower back pain. I was diagnosed with cystitis, and a week later a Kidney infection, I doubted it was a kidney infection, but I took the antibiotics. The pain persisted, and after intercourse with my husband I bled heavily for a few days. I went back to my GP, over the next few weeks I had 3 pelvic examinations. I was told my pelvis was inflammed, and could be a cyst.
After an ultrasound scan, I was told I had polycystic ovaries, but was told this would not be responsible for my pain and bleeding, as I have probably always had PO but not known about it.
However its been 4 months now, and im still in constant pain/discomfort in my lower back, and out of 5 times I have had intercourse with my husband, I have bled heavily 4 times, this time I bled for almost a week, I sometimes have abdominal pains too, especially where my ovaries are, I seem to also be feeling tired and generally unwell. I have been referred to a gynacologist a month ago, but still not had an appointment. Im getting very anxious about this now, I know this is different but I do have a history of breast cancer in my family, and my mum had breast cancer at 39 but lost her fight at 41. Im so scared that this could happen to me, as I have been in like this for 4 months now. Im contemplating going private, but cannot really afford it.
I would love to hear from anyone with similar symptoms and had a diagnoses, or anyone elses opinion. Thankyou
