Abdominal Pain Answer A5551


Current medical status: i started my period on the 14, since the 13 i have been exsperanceing pain where my left ovarie sits, thinking that it was period related i ignored it... how ever i finished on the 16th and the pain not ony stuck around but has gotten worse so i went to the branch hospital to see a pmc (military) who did a u/a that came back clear and a pelvic exam and she said my left ovarie was enlarged and requested a get an ultrasound and sent me home with naproxin 500s (not helping at all!!!)... this was the 23rd. the next day severty got to the point of tears and buckeling down so i went in to the er... they orderd the ultrasound same day tech and dr. saw nothing but huge left ovarie so they did a transvaginal sonogarm and still nothing... dr told me it was normal...


According to the symptoms you reported, you might be experiencing pelvic inflammatory disease, including inflammation of the left ovary. The inflammation might be caused by an ascending infection that originates from the cervix. You might want to check for any cervical and vaginal infections (gonorrhea, Chlamydia and other sexually transmitted disease) with your gynecologist. If infection is the reason for this condition, then an antibiotic with a broad specter might be administered.
