Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Just before the periods begin there is usually water retention seen in our body which is normal and we feel that our stomach is bulging out. It does not mean that you have a cyst or something serious. This will disappear once your periods are over.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
Regards

HI. I just have a couple of questions. I have a lot of stomach pain and I have been told that I have golf ball cysts on my left and right ovaries. Along with this I experience painful sex and bloating often. Normally before all of this I had really light and short periods. Then a few months ago I started having really long and heavy periods. Now I have not had a period in 3 months. I am almost positive that I am not pregnant. Do you know what could be going on with me? It is worrying me to death. Not having a period without being pregnant has never happen to me before. Please help.

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.

I have had 3 c sections and since my last one 2 years ago I have had general discomfort in my lower mostly left abdomen. Lately I have had frequent urgent uncomfortable urination, with negative urine culture. Had renal ultrasound today that looked fairly normal I think. Wonder about scar tissue? Also I have ulcerative colitis but haven't had a serious flair in about 2 years.
