Question: I recently had a D&C I am having pain on my lower left side sharp and my back left is that normal?

Thank you for the query.

The most probable reason of such symptoms is urinary tract stones, left ovarian infection and uterine infection.
It is advisable for you to have full blood work, urine analysis and abdominal ultrasound. Transvaginal ultrasound may be also required.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

PELVIC ULTRASOUND: I had a biopsy last Thursday how long do you have to edit before you resume intercourse? What does of this means? HISTORY48 years female : Postmenopausal bleeding Comparison: 4-28-14 pelvic ultrasound Transabdominal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals a retroflexed uterus measuring 11.0 x 5.2 x 4.6 cm. Transvaginal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals several nabothian cysts in the cervix. The endometrial stripe is heterogeneous and exhibits a maximum thickness of 11 mm which is abnormally thickened for a postmenopausal female not on hormone replacement therapy. The uterine myometrium is diffusely heterogeneous, raising the possibility of adenomyosis. Multiple subcentimeter cystic spaces are noted in the endometrium. Neoplasia cannot be excluded. A small amount of free fluid is visible in the pelvis. A posterior, intramural fibroid measures 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm. The right ovary measures 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.4 cm. A hypoechoic lesion in the right adnexa, measuring 2.2 x 2.0 x 1.0 cm is most suggestive of a paraovarian cyst. The left ovary measures 4.4 x 2.1 x 1.9 cm and contains a 0.8 x 0.7 x 0.7 hypoechoic lesion with an echogenic rim; this lesion is not significantly changed from the prior exam. IMPRESSION: 1. Thickened endometrial stripe containing numerous subcentimeter cystic spaces; neoplasia cannot be excluded. Further evaluation with endometrial biopsy or sonohysterography should be considered. 2. Hypoechoic lesion previously noted in the right ovary is not evident on the current exam. 2. Subcentimeter, hypoechoic lesion in the left ovary which exhibits an echogenic rim is not significantly changed from 4-28-14. A similar lesion was noted on a 10-30-13 pelvic ultrasound,

Hi I'm 27 year old female. For years I have had a dull ache in my lower right abdomen. I have also had a green/discharge on and off during this time aswell. Sometimes it's a normal colour sometimes clear/White, sometimes I would pass large amounts of mucous. I have had a transvaginal ultrasound, doc says nothing wrong with me. My smears are normal. Ive had no historical medical problems. I mentioned to the doc that my husband and I are trying to conceive, he said he sees no difficulty but to me this isn't normal, please help.

Hi, I did not get my period last June which is unusual to me because it's on a regular basis. I took two pregnancy test, both got two lines though the second line is a faint one. I went to an OB and she confirmed I was positively pregnant. I was scheduled for Transvaginal Ultrasound but it showed an empty uterus, only thickened endometrium. If this would be of any help as a basis on your answer, my last sexual encounter (unprotected) was June 14 and I am not really very aware of when I ovulate. My LMP was from May 23 - 26 or 27. Thank you in advance.
