Oh. My. Glob.
I think I finally have one, the C of PCOS. For the last week I’ve noticed a steady increase in ovarian pain when I use the bathroom. This is normal for me around ovulation, but I’m way past that this month. It’s cycle day 36 and the last two days have been filled with me not having proper bowel movements because it just hurts too much to push (I’m so, so, sorry for that mental image I just filled you with).
My sister had to have both of her ovaries removed because of massive softball sized cysts on them-I’m so terrified of that happening to me. I’m hoping this is just a one time occurence-that happens right? My mom says she had them on and off a lot of her life. This is just misery, and I know the only way to prevent them is to stop ovulating, which means BC pills and OF COURSE I don’t want to do that again. Right now I’m on naproxen, which isn’t doing a damn thing, so my momma said to add tylenol in with it so I just took two of those, but really, all I want to do is use the bathroom without pain 😦 How long do these terrible things last? Tell me at what point I should see my OBGYN?
I know it’s Friday, which is when the internet goes vacant, but HELP ME PLEASE.
