Before I start, I'm so thankful for this board! I've been looking around at everyone's postings for a while, but finally I've decided to try my first one.
A little background, I've had a lot of anxiety due to my health. At 23 years old, I've been through a fair amount of health scares. One which turned out to be an ovarian cyst, another with pelvic floor dysfunction, gastro issues related to antibiotics (from frequent sinus infections), back and forth BV and yeast infections (finally under control) and a cervical cancer scare which ended up being fine (thank god!!) but I had to have a cone biopsy.
Three months after my cone biopsy, I'm now having pelvic pain. It started last month when I had pain around ovulation time. It lasted about a week, then seemed to go away. Nothing too major or crippling, but it was noticeable. I went to the doctor right before getting my period and he said he didn't feel anything during an internal exam, but I also think he was going pretty quickly (he had an emergency with one of his pregnant patients right after).
Now this month, I've had pelvic pain for about 4 days now, but it seems to be fairly worse. It's on my lower right side, radiates to my hip, and I seem to have bloating/gas with it as well. I worked out this morning, and I don't know if that affected it, but the pain seems to be worse. I am also having constipation with it.
Have any women also had this problem? I'm a little afraid it's endometriosis, because I always think of infertility and chronic pain when hearing that! I'm afraid I'm going to now have chronic pain since there is no cure. I also don't know if it could be an ovarian cyst, since the cyst I had was about 10 years ago. I have relatively long periods (7 days) but they're always on time, pretty heavy but no terrible cramping. Then I thought maybe PID from infection from the cone biopsy is possible. Any similar stories or help would be appreciated!!
