Lower abdominal pain, sticky menstrual blood. Cervicitis suspected. Should i be concerned?

i've been having lower abdominal pain for over a week. I went to planned parenthood and the ER a few days ago and they said that I have cervicitis but haven't had any positive results for any STD's. The pain hasn't subsided but I also started my menstrual today yet I'm slightly paranoid that it isn't my menstrual only because I've been feeling immense amount of pain and the blood has been what I can only describe as "gooey". Should I be worried or just ride it out until my cycle is over?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
YOu should not ,many women experience this periodicaly and it can be just more intensive menstrual pain. Some disorders which may be considered are endoetriosis and ovarian cysts. YOu should do vaginal and pelvic ultrasound and hormonal levels to verify that. Also check your red count levels to rule out anaemia. Irregular bleeding is common and usually is caused by horminal imbalance,but as I sadi I suggest to wait and see will pain porgress. If yes, then do tests i ve mentioned. Wish you good health.
