User :   I did an ultrasound and the report said that I have a bulky cervix.My doctor suggested that I do a pap smear which I did but I have to wait 2 weeks to get the results from that and I am so worried.Can you tell me what could cause a bulky cervix?Also,I am currently being treated for a UTI because I have frequent urination and I am experiencing pelvic cramps even know 4 days into my 7 day treatment for UTI.I thought i'd feel some relief by now.Since I am not feeling any relief where the pain is concerned does this mean I have something really serious?I also have gential herpes so can you tell me if that is somehow connected to the bulky cervix diagnosis?Will I be able to have kids still?Can I still try to have kids now and get the issue sorted out after?I am 30 yrs old and wanted to start trying for children soon.I am not having sex at this time due to the pain I am experiencing.Help please.Thanks
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
let me read
User :   hi,ok
Doctor :   bulky uterus denotes that the uterus is bigger in size and no more than that
Doctor :  
the causes of it may be
Doctor :  
as simple as
Doctor :   the proliferation phase of the menstrual period to
Doctor :   some serious conditions like infections fibroids
Doctor :  
with the symptoms you are suffering it is more likely you have an infection in the uterus
Doctor :   Pap smear will be able to clearly tell what it is
User :   yes,he did say he has to wait on the pap smear.So you're saying the bulky cervix diagnosis could be an infection in the uterus.
Doctor :   with the symptoms you have it is most likely to be the cause
User :   When my doc pressed against my bladder that did hurt so do you think its is safe to say that the pain that I am feeling is still as a result of the UTI?
User :   and not due to the infection of the cervix/uterus?
Doctor :   do you have white discharge?

User :   yes but I think its normal,it doesnt smell and I should ovulate in the next 2 days so I am assuming that the discharge i see now is normal.
Doctor :   do you have burning sensation while passing urine?
User :   I do
User :   and when I need to go i feel that cramping feeling
Doctor :   ok
User :   I am currently taking norilet
Doctor :  
with the symptoms of uti and the ultrasound showing bulky uterus there is all chances of you having infection in the cervix also
Doctor :  
and pap smear will be able to confirm it
User :   ok.
Doctor :   there is treatment for it
User :   ok good
Doctor :  
not to worry
User :   :-)
User :   thank u.Am I able to ask something else?
Doctor :  
after you complete the treatment and infection is cured
Doctor :  
you will be able to have kids
User :   ok good
Doctor :   yes proceed with the query
User :   I suffer from severe migraines and recently I realise that they come on very strong in the afternoons towards evenings.I usually 3 times per and snack in between and I also watch what I eat and avoid the things that trigger it but I am still concerned.Can you tell me anything about what may be causing this?I am not stressed at work or otherwise.
Doctor :  
the cause for the migraine is not known and also the factors which trigger in a person the migraine is also not known.
Doctor :  
we have only control measures
User :   Ok.So if I a CT scan and all is well I just have to try to control it then?
Doctor :   so follow the medications accordingly and the severity will be less
User :   ok
Doctor :   the investigation like CT is to know whether is there any other cause for the headache
User :   ok
Doctor :   good news is over a period of time the migraine will go off by itself
User :   ok,looking forward to than then :-)
Doctor :   during the episode medications are given to control the symptoms
User :   ok
