How long have you had the pain?
It started shortly after my period.. its what I can describe as a twinge sensation at the bottom of the lower abdonen to the top of the genital area.. sometimes I get light pain around that area
But this time is worse? Does it happen around the same time during your menstrual cycle when it has in the past?
No iv never really had these twinges before.. just started 2 days after my period..the pain doesnt prevent me from anything its more like niggiling pain..im not on any form of birth control, but my periods have always been regular
to certain foods?
Are you sexually active?
i.e. any chance of pregnancy
This is probably the normal breaking open of a follicle in an ovary as an egg is release (like little explosions) Your body gets irritated by them and the body gets inflamed inside. It passes after time, but can be annoying (one of the main reasons women end up getting ultrasounds in the er of their pelvis).
Also, twisting of the ovary is painful and can be very dangerous but is only able to be checked with an ultrasound.
Whether you wish to do that is really up to you, but since I can't examine you I can't tell you that it isn't a possibility.
If you've been having the pain for 2 days it is probably not this twisting however, but that can't be said with certainty without an ultrasound.
Oh I see.. I just cant explain it is so difficult..its just like light pain sensations from the stomach area down, not very painful but annoying but iv had it for 3 days now
Otherwise, taking an antiinflammatory for a few days would take care of the pain cause by reaction to ovulation.
I just wanted some reassurance as I was thinking alsorts..
Appendicitis is another possibility, however doesn't fit with the lack of overt severity that you're having.
No its not severe I can cope with it but I just find it worrying
If you're not feeling like a visit for an ultrasound in the ER, taking an antiinflammatory (over the counter) would be what you can do at home
How are you feeling about that?
I would definitely like to see into an ultrasound..
That'd have to be at the er given the possibilities of torsion versus appendicitis.
Is there a possibility of this being quite serious
But that's the only way to evaluate for those possibilities, but frankly given that you've had this sensation for 3 days it makes those less likely
as they'd have become very seriously painful by now
I see... with it being immediately after my period I'd been connecting it all with that
Yes, it is most likely in reaction to menstruation or ovulation.
And with there being some twinges in the genital area
Sometimes there can be endometrial (menstruating tissue) scattered throughout the pelvis that gets triggered when the period starts causing a little bleeding in the pelvis which the body reacts to as well.
Okay.. well I will pursue an ultrasound anyway, I was just making sure incase it was something very serious.. I was thinking it was the start of something else see
The more serious problems would likely have become dibilitatingly painful by 3 days
Is it quite normal for this sort of pain to move around ?
Is it quite normal for this paun to move around? this area
many tthanks I suppose im just so scared you hear so many hortor stories of younger women getting ovarian/cervical cancer etc.. I just needed some reassurance
Im still having these light aches on day 4.. but it stoped for the majority of yesterday just today had light pain.. I will pursue an ultrasound but do you think only going off my symptoms that this will ease off in time?
Okay I see...iv had like a little pulling sensation in the stomach today and im getting occassional lower back pain can this all be related?
okay thank you for your help with these questions over the last few days I think I can leave a rating now, last thing though is I seem to be urinating frequently lately well a little more than normal, is this something I should be worried about? pain is still the same it has not increased... but on day 5 now so should this be carrying on?
