A couple of weeks ago I was not feeling well and had started to feel some pain and heaviness in the pelvic area, I went to a health centre they said it was a UTI (found substantial amount of blood in urine and high white blood cell count)and gave antibiotics. It is now two weeks later and still feel the same way, went to my own doctor they found that there was no infection but still same results. Went for a ultrasound and doctor called back saying no stones, but did find that I have a "Sickness in uterus"......... what does that mean?????
Doctor :   hI
Doctor :   Pls. give me few secs. to go through your query .
User :   I have had this before where they find blood in urine and I have already seen a urologist and they found nothing
User :   I have had bleeding and pain with intercourse
Doctor :   Ok.
User :   I am 37 years old
Doctor :   May I knwo if the Ultrasound report stated Sickness in Uterus ?
User :   thats what the doctors office said
Doctor :   Ok.
User :   that the report said sickness in uterus
Doctor :   Are you taking any other medocation for this problem or for anything else ?
User :   no
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   May I know if you have had any gynecological problems or anything like Uterus problems or infections earlier ?
Doctor :   And may I know what exactly the Ultrasound read out on the radiologist's report for the problem ?
User :   I have had polysistic ovaries, but have had no symptms since my 2nd child which was 12 years ago. All I know is that the doctors office asked me to come in because the ultrasound came back saying I have a sickness in the uterus. I'm just wondering what that could be
Doctor :   It could be something like just a 1. simple uterine infection 2.Cervicictis 3. Salpingitis 4.Or Rarely Any Fibroids .
User :   thats what a sick uterus is? Doe these also cause the bleeding?
User :   Where r u a doctor?
Doctor :   A fibroid can cause DUB.
Doctor :   And as you have been saying heaviness
User :   yes
Doctor :   It can be one possibility.
User :   would the ulrasound say sick uterous ifit is a fibroid
Doctor :   I have been mentioning to you that the Ultrasound never says " Sick Uterus", Could you give me the exact nomenclature or diagnossis ?
Doctor :   Or couldd you forward me a copy ?
User :   no i have not seen the report only what the doctors office said to me today. So saying a sick uterus is just an easy way for them to say there is something wrong.
Doctor :   Usually the report is on medical lines , saying for eg." Fluid accumulated in Pelvic floor,Slightly hypertrophied Uterine musculature , please correlate clinically."
Doctor :   Yes , that could be it , but they have to give you a proper diagnosis
Doctor :   without which it becomes very difficult to treat.
Doctor :   There are numerous other Uterine problems, Dysfunctional uterine bleeding, polyps, fibroids, Cysts, etc .
Doctor :   Sick Uterus is a very vague term that your doctor's office has used.
Doctor :   I shall enlist all the uterine possibilities , is that fine ?
Doctor :   1.Endo metriosis 2, Uterine fibroids 3.Adenomyosis 4. Polyps 5. DUB
Doctor :   6.Hormonal problems
Doctor :   Hope you have followed .
Doctor :   Thank you for ocnsulting me, Take care, Bye fo rnow
