I am now worried because I have been having strange symptoms for the last 4 months, it started with cystitis, heavy periods every 2 weeks, sometimes lasting 12 days or longer, an ache in my back and left side which has got worse over time, I wake in the early hours with it. I am also exhausted. My doctor sent me for a colonoscopy because I was having diareah or being constipated but that was fine. I then had ultrasound scan, my right ovary couldn't be seen and I had a fibroid which was small so the doctor isn't concerned. However this pain and my periods are getting me down, I have pain in my ovary area and when I have sex they hurt! My mum died of ovarian cancer, I told my doctor and she has finally referred me to a gynocologist ...... I'm feeling lonely and worried.
