Hi , too much pain is not normal , as it is on one side it is less likely to be uterine pain.It can be due to intestinal , urinary or muscular causes.Get an ultrasound and urine examination done.If you are having constipation then drink lot of water and take fibre rich diet.Tablet isoxsuprine hydrochloride 10 mgm at bed time will help as it relaxes the uterus.

I am just at 32 weeks pregnant and I just started to have lower back pain followed by lower pelvic pain just on my left side. Just yesterday evening the lower pelvic pain sometimes caused it to hurt when I urinate. I can feel the baby sitting or pressing over there. It only hurts on the left side and it doesnt ache one bit on the right side (even when urinating). Your thoughts?

Hi I am a 22 year old male, with pain and swelling in my epididymis. I was diagnosed with epididymitis about a year and a half ago and went through multiple trials of antibiotics and anti inflammatory medicine. Some trials came with a little relief but pain and swelling would return after about a month. I also had an ultrasound which showed nothing abnormal. After about 6 months of dealing with epididymitis doctors diagnosed me with chronic prostatitis. After I was diagnosed, I decided to enroll myself in yoga and found myself a knowledgeable physical therapist to help with all my pelvic pain. After about 2 months of working with the PT my pelvic pain was alleviated. It's been about 3 or 4 months since I've been back and my pelvic pain is still minimal, however I still have great pain and swelling in both of my epididymis. I can feel that the coils are very swollen and the actual epididymis is swollen and hard. I have yet to find relief to the swelling and pain of the epidiymis although I've found relief in all my other forms of pelvic pain. Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,



7 weeks ago i had an ovarian cyst aspirated laparoscopically after 18 months of various symtoms including severe pelvic pain, abdominal cramping and bloating,vomitting, loss of appetite, night sweats etc. A week after surgery i had a pelvic ultrasound which showed a 2 1/2 cm cyst on same ovary, the ultrasound has also shown a cyst on my spleen and left kidney. Im very confused and worried and the consultant in my hospital is not seeing me again for another 6 months eventhough im still experiencing all symptoms.

Hello, less than two months ago I was admitted to the hospital for severe abdominal pain, lower back pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Thought it was IBS flaring up or worse, cancer. Then to my surprise, every test came back normal except a pelvic MRI. I had been diagnosed in the ER a week before with a bladder infection and treated with antibiotics. I did not have a bladder infection. I know what they feel like and that was not a bladder infection. My symptoms were not even female related. Fast forward to biopsy for adenomyosis. Soooooo painful, yet came back normal . At the time I had severe lower back pain and pelvic pain and bloating. I am waiting to get in to see another OB/GYN as the one I currently have suggested Mirena. Not going to happen. Now I once again have severe back pain, pelvice pain and am bleeding heavily and have blood clots. Do I need a hysterectomy??? I am 50 years old and have still been getting my period. Please help. Thank you. Tanya

I have been suffering with re-occuring diarrhoea and pelvic pains along with acid reflux and irregular periods for the last couple of months. My doctor has started me on some tablets for the reflux and I am booked in to have an endoscopy done to check there is nothing going on bowel wise. I am worried though as I read that pelvic pain, irregular periods and diarrohea can be a sign of ovarian cancer. I had a abdominal ultrasound done twelve weeks ago and they checked both ovaries and found a small cyst on one. does this rule out cancer?
