experiencing pelvic pain where I can hardly walk

User Profile
Hey was hoping someone could help me. I stopped my period a week and a half ago, but been experiencing pelvic pain where I can hardly walk and today back pain, a bit like period pain. I had light bleeding but yesterday I woke up and was bleeding a lot, had nothing since but discharge. I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow but I'm worried sick so was just wondering if someone could help me out with what this could be?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The midcycle time bleeding/spotting that you describe could indicate ovulation bleeding, hormonal changes, breakthrough bleeding, bleeding from endometrial polyp, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Go ahead with your scheduled appointment or wait and watch for your next periods and observe the spotting/discharge that you describe. If the spotting/discharge remains persistent, or if it is getting worse, or not resolving, then you should consider getting thorough examination and further evaluation done by your doctor/gynecologist to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you control the spotting/bleeding and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
