Pelvic Pain, heavy bleeding for a month, nothing shows up on ultrasound!
I have always had very painful periods. Not particularly heavy but just really painful. My flow usually lasts 3-4 days, sometimes more, but never less. They have never lasted more than 7 days, and that was mainly during the first few years I had a cycle. I have had a few ovarian cysts, and I thought that's what this might be. My PCP (Haven't been to GYN yet, go on Friday) did an ultrasound of my pelvis, and it was unremarkable. I can't believe this, because I have been bleeding for close to a month. (Started on May 26th.) There are quite a few more clots in it than I typically see....and they can be quite large.
The ultrasound tech thought she saw something, and measured it, (said the word cyst) but it said nothing about that in the report my PCP got. My GYN is also getting a copy of the report, but I am wondering if I should obtain the actual ultrasound images and take them with me on Friday?
Has anyone ever had this happen that nothing shows on an ultrasound? I had a transvaginal and a pelvic ultrasound. Something is going on that is out of the norm for me and I WILL find out what it is. I also had an epidural steroid injection in my back a few weeks before the bleeding started. Is this something that I should mention to the gynecologist? I ask because I know that steroids can mess up menstruation from time to time. Any help anyone can give is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
