Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

As you have recurrent infection,there must be some source of infection.
You need proper clinical examination and investigations.
Investigations include routine hemogram,Random blood sugar,Liver function test,Renal function test,Urine RE/ME,Ultrasound of abdomen.
Further investigations like CT can of abdomen can be done if needed.

Ultrasound of abdomen is very important in screening.It will screen any ovarian or abdominal pathology.

For bloating,i suggest may patients to take tablet pantoprazole 40 mg half hour before food for six weeks.

Proper treatment depend upon findings.

Get well soon.
Hope I have answered your question.
Further queries are most welcome.

hi i got ovarian pain. i've had ivf 2years ago and i overstimulated to the drugs (ended up having moderate OHSS) and a large cyst on my right ovary. the IVF was a success and I had twins, while I was pregnant the ovaries went down to their original size (they were enlarged after the drugs) and the cyst went down. I didnt have a scan since but at times I could feel pain in the ovaries and it got worse in the last week or so. Not sure if its related. I'm still BFeeding (twins are now 15mnths) but not much and I also got my period back in Nov last year. Should I be concerned about this pain? im thinking its probably a cyst (or cysts) many thanks
