HELP bloating for over a month now!

Ive had lower abdominal swelling / bloating along with the pelvic region for weeks. Its so swollen it is uncomfortable. I have gone to the doctors weeks ago for this and bad a CT scan of abdomen and pelvis. They did see ovarian cysts and something that suggested a ruptured cyst. Since then it has gotten worse. I have regular periods. No chance of pregnancy. Negative urine sample for infection. Normal CBC. I am also experiencing pain/cramping and pressure in the swollen area. Increased urination. And sometime I have to apply pressure to empty bladder. Any thoughts or guidance would be helpful.

I'm a 22 year old female, I have had ulcerative colitis and pancreatitis in the past. Both of which are under control.

hi, has your GP refered you to see a urologist? it might be an idea to have a scope of the bladder, its not painful but enables a good look inside the bladder to see if any probs. it could be your bladder is going into spasm, hence needing to apply pressure. the bladder is a muscle and can be predisposed to cramps like calf muscle. the other problem that this sounds like is adhesions, whether its from UC in past or from ovarian cysts causing inflammation. i hope this is of some help, please let me know how you get on x
