new to this site, found it when researching bulky ovaries as went to see gynae. today to be told I may have erosion & bulky ovaries. Have been getting mid-cycle pain, severe bloating, abdom., back & leg pain and difficulty urinating - feels it trickles as my pelvis is so inflammed & bloated it feels as though something is pressing/pulling on my bowel & bladder - also very painful after urinating & after intercourse. very heavy discharge - clear/white(no odour or colour) but in pain for majority of the month. have also had bloating further up abdomen to just beneath ribs with frequently feeling full & occasional heartburn. have had this for over 12 years & had laproscopy 10 yrs ago & told it was IBS but no medication seems to make any difference. have to sit down carefully as it feels as though something is been pushed up inside if I sit suddenly. when I lie down my abdomen still looks swollen & gets very hot & inflammed. no painkillers seem to really help as still left with feeling of fullness. any advice would be helpful. gynae suggested mini-pill as she thinks it's just mid-cycle pain that will disappear if i take progesterone only pill. I also have poorly controlled high Bp as well as mitral valve prolapse so am not comfortable taking hormones due to strong family history of strokes. am 44 yrs old.
