Hello ladies so in 20 years old and in April I was rushed to the hospital because I had pain in the left side of my abdomen. I had a scan done and it showed that my left ovary was swollen and the sonographer suggested that it was PID , pelvic inflammatory disease. I went to see my gynecologist and she suspected that it was due to an untreated STI and she took a swab test which came back negative but my vaginal flora was imbalanced and she asked me to take azithromax but unfortunately I did not take it. I went back again for the scan and the ovary wasn't swollen. Last week I started feeling the pain again and I was so sure that it was swollen again, went to see the gynecologist and she said I have to go for laparoscopy because she thinks it could be endometriosis since I also have very heavy and painful periods so painful that I can't go to school for those 7 days and the gynecologist also mentioned that the ovary is probably swelling only when I'm off my period. I started googling my symptoms now I'm seeing possibilities of ectopic pregnancies I don't think it's that but now I'm very worried
