OK Chinwe--stick with me for a while. So are you saying that you haven't had a scan before the one that's been booked? And has your doctor ever commented on any of this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
And your doctor hasn't commented on the pains or the irregular periods?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

no he jes booked for a scan nd dats very far nd its getting me more depressed.

OK Chinwe. We can continue after this if you'd like, but all I can do here is give you my thoughts. You may have something called polycystic ovarian disease or something like endometriosis which is uterine tissue that's outside the uterus and either in the pelvis or on the tubes on on the intestines. The scan will look for the ovarian cysts but for the endometriosis that may take a ct scan instead of an ultrasound. Neither condition would mean you couldn't get pregnant but either one would need treatment first. Your doctor really should have discussed all this with you before now so ask him about these two disorders
