Irregular bleeding, lower back pain, pelvic area pain. Help?

I have went to my gyn twice now for irregular bleeding, lower back pain an pelvic pain . Both times she has said she felt a mass during my exam and it hurt when she pressed in that area. Both times she has ordered a transvaginal ultrasound and the first time she said everything was fine, this time ovaries were fine but she said that there was a 4 cm. spot that was probably stool . should i get a second opinion?

Firstly, irregular bleeding is not caused by stool. You should get a hormonal profile as well in addition to the sonogram to know the cause. The origin of the mass should be deciphered. You may take a second opinion and also consult a surgeon should the mass be unrelated to the uterus, tubes and ovaries. Most often, a tubo-ovarian mass may be misconceived as something else. Please get further advice from your doctor. Good luck.
