Smile abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

Hi i'm looking for someone who has the same issues as I do. I am sure I still have a cyst or cysts not sure I have never been diagnosed with one ..

Here's my story. I am currently breastfeeding my 7.5 mo old daughter.. On may 2/12 i had an unusual spotting of typical ovulation bleeding (egg white with pin blood spotting in it)?.. Cramps started that night so intense it woke me from my sleep. I thought I may have been pregnant again bc I started to exhibit frequent urination ( this happened early in my last pregnancy although I know it's usually 2nd trimester) anyways nauseous.. Extreme fatigue.. Metallic taste in my mouth? Anywho that following weekend I thought I had a uti so I went to the hospital.. No uti.. Yeast or infection of any kind.. This was 5 days after the strange spotting..

The following week again spotting ( when I say spotting it only happens twice that day and very light pink when I wipe).. This happend 1 more time a week later with pain in my ovaries and low back ache ..

Last thurs almost a month later I woke up 5 am and ran to the washroom.. Extreme cramping urge to urinate and have a bowel movement tmi srry! The cramping was very painful almost like labour pains. I have had 2 blood tests and about 20 hpt so I know i'm not preggo.. I went to my doc the next day he did a pelvic exam.. He felt something but it wasn't painful but he kept pressing it and asking if it hurt?

Anyways I have an ultrasound next Tuesday ( in 4 days from now) which is i Since the pain on Thursday I am so bloated I get random sharp pains.. I have also felt 2 separate popping feelings one upper back left side and 1 lower left side abdomen...I have bad indigestion and cannot eat much because I feel so full.. I also get nauseous and very tired. I can feel a lump above my belly button that aches in my back when I press down.. I can also feel pain on might right ovary if I press on it..

My questions are:
1) does anyone else experience painful spotting? And has it been more than 4 times in a month with a cyst or fibroid??

2) does anyone with cysts get this popping feeling pain only once for maybe 2 mintues?

3) I cut down breastfeeding at 5 months and she is getting solids and not feeding through the night.. Is this normal for anyone who has breastfed to not get a period still by 8 months and ave painful spotting with cramps/ neasous/indigestion like 3rd trimester I literally feel like I have pregoo symptoms from a later pregnancy it's so weird??

4) anyone else get crazy indigestion with the bloating??
5) anyone experience painful spotting and extreme fatigue and urge to urine/have a bm with fibroids??
Thanks for all who read this post I am just a nervous wreck..going nuts waiting for my ultrasound...

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

Hi there,

I can comment on the cyst and the popping feeling. I have too experienced that before and it scared me so bad. I seriously thought my ovary had ruptured. I had a huge POP feeling happen on my left ovary and Sharp pains at the same time, with a feeling of lots of liquid running from ovary down into my thigh. It was the oddest thing I've ever yet experienced. The pain came and went during the whole day. I ended up going to the hospital to get myself checked out and the doctor told me that I just had an ovarian cyst rupture and to just take tylenol for the pain...
I hope you find out answers to your questions. It's not a fun thing to deal with!
hope my words help you some.

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

I am still waiting to meet with my doc sadly.. I was suppose to have an appointment after the results came back but the stupid receptionist never called... She did say my pelvic exam came back normal but I had 2 teat transvag and abdominal so I just said I'd wait to hear from the doc. My appt is this thursday... Are you getting bad backache also?? I still havent got my . And when I press my right side it hurts into my back...
Are you also breastfeeding? I have a feeling im going to be told nothing came up but looking back at my other problems I think I might have endometrrosis which is less likely to show on an ultrasound.

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

Ok here's my story

3 years ago randomly I started getting cramping one day that disnt go away, I had ultrasounds, blood tests, urine tests absolutely everything! I was on pain killers for a year, basically they said it was endometriosis because they couldn't find a thing but I kept having immense period like pain more do on my right side, so I had a laparoscopy to see if there was anything there, turns out I had about 2 cysts on my left ovary and 3 on my right ovary, large ones. The cysts were not harmful in any way but caused me alot of pain. So three years in pain free, I had my beautiful baby boy 5 months ago..... now depressingly enough it's all starting again! Immense cramping more on my right side, really bad back pain, I'm also breastfeeding. I freaked thinking it was my appendix but I've now been to the hospital twice had ultrasounds done 3 times blood tests, I thought it was a urine infection, but it's not feels as though I need to pee even though I've gone. Some days are good others are so painful! I can only have panadol because of breastfeeding but I'm about 90% sure it's my cysts back. I also haven't had a period, but it sounds as though u have cysts? Also their so painful when the burst but have hope that it can be fixed. Please keep me updated of how you are going? I'm going to organize another surgery/laparoscopy, I hate this!

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

Wow sounds exactly like my situation... I know im so frustrated because i have been getting the right sided pain off and on for 3 years but when i got preggo i felt amazing.. I just feel so hopeless ive gone through so many tests over the last 3 years and only thing i ever had was an elevated liver enzyme test... So doc thought gallstones which he thinks again but im pretty sure your right its cysts. About 5 years ago i actually hemmoraged and er doc though it was bladder infection?? So they just gave me antibiotics which now i look back im sure it was prolly a cysts because all the symptoms came at once..
I had the transvag ultrasound done and i felt a ton of discomfort like pressure through my abdomen... Which i get during sex:s all very frusturating glad to have someone to talk too bc i feel like everyone thinks im nuts!!

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

Actually was thinking about asking for laprascopy if nothing turns up.... The thing is symptoms seem to subside then come back w vengence.. So i hate when ppl say oh how are u feeling and then to say oh todays a good day makes its sound like im a hypochondriac.. Ppl think that if the symptoms aren't constant then its fine no biggie.. I would trade places just to see what it feels like to feel energetic and pain free its been depressing not sure if its my hormones but i just feel so scatter brained and i just want to enjoy every minute w my lill beauty and not google every second about something new that i feel symptom wise....... Had to vent srry!

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

SO I went to the doc today and the ultrasound said normal pelvic exa
... Although left scarring on my kidney? I wonder if I could jave adhesions that have caused this? Doc has referred me to get a cystoscope and also think my symptoms point to endo. I have to wait for an appointment w the specialist to get a laprascopy so again I wait. Apparently I'm not ovulating I have no follicles to even produce cysts so all these period like symptoms are strange given the circumstance of not ovulating and my bouts of painful spotting... Wt heck is going on doc thinks im nuts he actually asked if I ever had an mri of the brain bc im now getting burning feet at night and numbness in my legs... I guess I just have to wait and be positive so that I can stop focusing on all my problems...

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

Sorry to hear this..Whar are you symptoms that caused this diagnosis?? I havent even got an appointment yet... In canada referrals take 4-6 weeks ugh. I have been reading about IC and have a feeling this is what I will hear also. IC sounds like the "urinary tracts" version of IBS... Almost like a diagnosis used when nothing else can explain the symptoms... Is this why you feel devistated? I have read up on IC but maybe theres more to it? My doc has referred me to a urologist for cystoscopy bc a few years ago I randomly urinated blood as if I was hemmoraging and was not in any severe pain except like I had a UTI. I also have a referral to a new gyn for a lap test still havent been booked in....
Frustrating to deal w this ...

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

Hey how are you? Well I'm still the same but it's gradually getting worse I'm so depressed! Have you found an answer yet? My symptoms again are severe cramping, pain after urinating like cramps intensified, feels as though I haven't finished peeong, NO urgency to pee or burning when I go. Bloating pain in belly, hurts to push on my belly, IBS symptoms. And I can be fine one day and be awful the next?! I'm still breastfeeding and haven't had a period yet. I'm yet to see another specialist nextonday but I know he will just say IC again

Re: abnormal spotting with pain cysts or fibroids?

hi there.. Well i have an appt with obgyn sept 11... Yes sept friggen ridiculous.. So i seen a urologist in the interim.. I might as well just x that of my list bc he did testing and nothing not even IC. I am getting pustules in my urine with tons of frequency.. Cramping and got my period.. Which was just a bunch of clots.. Im at an herbalist right now bc im fed up w medical system its bs and im at low functioning. No one wants to hear it anymore... Herbalist said al my systems are out of whack namely my hormonal system ovaries kidney bladder and thyroid... She thinks endo is accurate avenue but discourages medicine.. I am going to try the herbal route since it worked before until my appointment...
