24 year old female, pelvic pain

I am a 24 year old female, I have been having pelvic/lower abdomen pain since April of this year. I am also trying to conceive, quit taking birth control February 2017. My periods are irregular, every other month or so. They are normal, last about four days. I've been to three Drs. The first told me I had PID and gave me ampicillin. I took it all, it didn't help, I went back all he said was to take Ibuprofen. Went to a primary care Dr in june, he did a urine test, I went back and it was negative for STDs, he gave me diclofenac sodium and ondanseteon for the nausea. I went back in july, he ordered a blood test, ultrasound, and transvaginal Ultrasound. Everything came back normal. He gave me doxycycline and metronidazole and a shot of antibiotic in my butt. I took all of the meds. I am still hurting. Neither I nor my fiance have an std. I didn't have sex during the time I took my medication. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. WIth all the work up up negative, there is nothing to worry about SOme times previous PIDs lead to some scarring that could lead to such discomfort in future. Also altered menstrual cycle on its own is associated with PCOS and bowel discomforts. Supportive care with antispasmodics and pain killers is advised.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
