Hi, thanks for your query. I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Some women experience delay in periods in some of their cycles. The same is happening with you. This may be due Change in work pattern, excess exercise, changes in life style, stressful events in life etc. It is normal to have delayed periods occasionally. Hence, no need to worry about it.

2) Since you are already experiencing cramps you are likely to get period in about 2 days. 

3) Though it is early to get urine pregnancy test positive, I suggest you repeat pregnancy test after 4 days if you do not get periods. If you are still doubtful about pregnancy, you can get a test called serum beta hCG. This is confirmatory for pregnancy if you wish to be very sure.

4) You mentioned about a lump near cervix, I wish to know if it was diagnosed by a gynecologist after examination because, cervix cannot be visualized with bare eyes, it can only be seen by XXXXXXX examination.

I recommend you get it examined by gynecologist to decide type of cyst and if biopsy or excision of the lump is necessary to know nature of cyst. It is unlikely to be cancer as you are young and cancer is unlikely in your age group.

I hope I answered your query. Get back to me for any doubts.
Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol

hiya, i have had abdominal pain for the past two years. first they thought it was my bowel but as the pain got more worse and lower down they referred me to gynae. I had several appointments and they found i was tender in my cervix but didnt do anything about that. I had a laporoscopy and they didnt find anything wrong at all :/ but i am still getting the same pain as before sometimes worse! Im now being told its my bowel again. I would like a second opinion as its feels like im told the same thing over and over and nothing is being done about it.

I dont usually wear tampons but wore one yesterday. When I took it out last last I felt a dull pain when urinating. This morning I went to urinate and felt the same pain. There is no urge to urininate any more than normal or a feeling of not emptying my bladder. Could this be the beginning stages of a UTI or problems from the tampon. I dont find them to be very easy to come out once they're in. My cervix sits very far back.
