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.

Hello. My husband, son and I all ate fish from a fast food restaurant on Thursday. On Friday, I had diarrhea over the course of the day with some abdominal pain, weakness and fatigue. I felt better by that evening. My son was a little nauseous on Friday night, but felt better with Pepto Bismol and tums. My husband became feverish with chills, severe weakness, and severe diarrhea on Friday evening. He has continued to feel weak since then with diarrhea and some nausea. He has no appetite. I have been offering crackers, soup, ginger ale, and popsicles. He is very tired and has been sleeping most of 2 + days. He does not think he needs to see the Dr. ..... He is diabetic (oral meds) and is being treated with hormones for prostate cancer. Thank you for your help.
