Swelling and hardness in the lower pelvic region. Taking birth control pills. Have polycystic ovary disease

HI, I have polycystic ovary condition, and have been taking birth control for it since 2 years. I am noticing a swelling and hardness in lower pelvic region. There is no pain but an occasional sensation, like something moving as before a period. I am not pregnant (took the test last week). Is it normal, should I just ignore it.

you must not ignore the symptoms. I think it should not be something of very big magnitude. However, it is advisable to know exactly what is going on. A pelvic ultrasound or abdomino pelvic ultrasound shall be an ideal tests to illustrate the anatomic integrity of the structures in your pelvic region.
Other diseases like uterine fibroids when of a particular size could mimic such symptoms. Visit your physician for an ultrasound to rule out any of these possibilities,
Thanks and fast recovery,
