    Gynecological cancer symptoms?

    Ovarian cancer runs in my family, I'm 27. I've had ovarian cysts that have gone away in their own, but recently I've been having unusual symptoms. Heavy bleeding after sex. My periods are always on time and are always very light, I could wear a tampon for 8 hours and not have it even half full but I have been bleeding so heavy I'm soaking through tampons every two hours. I'm always bloated not just before or after menstruation but all month long. I eat healthy and exercise regularly but my mother is urging me to go to my doctor. Is this something to worry about?

    Go to the doctor and get thoroughly checked. You know it makes sense.

    Any number of things could be causing your cycle changes and bloating. A doctor's visit would be a good idea. If you want to know if you have inherited the ovarian cancer risk, you could see a genetic counselor for BRCA1 and BRCA2 testing.
