I'm really worried right now. I went to see my ob/gyn last month due to a missed period and pelvic pain. I practice abstinence, have been for 3 years now, so I'm not pregnant. He ordered a bunch of blood work and a transabdominal & abdominal ultrasound. I haven't gotten the results back from either yet, but have new issues. I finally got my period again (4 weeks late), but it's not a normal one. It's heavy, with a reddish/pink color, passing a several blood clots and the pelvic pain has become very severe to the point I can't get out of bed cause it seems to be shooting through my lower back when I stand, yet the pelvic pain itself seems worse laying down. I won't get my results till my doc appoint, which is a week away. What could be causing this?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on your symptoms without examining you. The pain could be suggestive of possibility of endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, severe pelvic congestion, ovarian cysts etc. You should consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for follow-up evaluation (on an urgent basis) to look for the underlying cause (you can also consider calling up and reporting your current symptoms and scheduling an urgent appointment). Wait for your investigation results to come. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated.
