My husband and I have been trying to concieve for over 2 years now.
I had surgery 2 weeks ago to remove a 5cm cyst on my left ovary and a palup in my uterus. I bled until saturday. My husband and I used a comdom to prevent infection but it broke. I am now experiencing alot of pressure in between my hips and my nipples are very sore. I am not saying that I think I might be pregnant because I really don't think that a person could know this early. My concern is that maybe I might have an infection. I am due to see my OB/GYN in January, to start Clomid. I have contacted his office and am unable to see him until then.

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum

You are unlikely to be pregnant as you had your periods on the ninth of this month. Pressure between the hips and sore breasts could be the sign of infection or it could be due to the after affect of surgery. It could also be due to pelvic inflammatory disease which can be diagnosed to a certain extent by an ultrasound scan too.

If you cannot meet your specialist until January, try and consult another gynecologist or your PCP until then. Hope this helps. Take care!
