Hello, I am a 23 year old female currently experiencing chronic pelvic pain. A little background, I checked into the ER for bloating and stomach pain in 2013, to find out I needed an emergency appendectomy, after this procedure I feel as though I've never really gotten well. Fast forward to 2014, and I underwent an hip arthroscopy because I believed the pain I was having was contributed to my hip and that region, another failed surgery because the pain is still there but I now believe the pain I was mistaking as hip pain is actually more in my pelvic region. In 2015, I had my first annual exam and the test came back positive for chlamyida (I have no idea how long it was there) but I got it treated and have been retested a few times since and all negative. My concern now is PID, I have been back and forth to the gyno and doctor multiple times for frequent urination and severe pelvic pain, I also have lower back pain that I thought was more contributed to my scoliosis but after doing my own research on PID, I do not believe that is the case. The pelvic pain is sharp and sudden, it gets so bad that I am unable to walk or stand. It sometimes shoots down my right leg. I was on the DEPO shot for a few years and came off about a year and a half ago, my periods were once normal again, but now theyre quite irregular. Either coming late, or some months not at all. Intercourse is also very uncomfortable for me, it's a deep pain. I urinate up to 30-40 times a day sometimes, some days are worse than others. I've had a cystoscopy, found nothing. I have also ended up in the ER on several occasions for pelvic pain and have been told I had ovarian cysts and that they may have ruptured. Last time, there was fluid in my pelvic area but they sent me on my way. Also forgot to include that I was diagnosed with a yeast infection and BV about three months ago, was given meds and once rechecked, it was gone.. but I still notice an odor and change in vaginal discharge, have been tested and cleared of all other STD's.. Does this still sound like it could be PID? I also noticed a trend of a low grade fever almost everytime I go to the doctor. I should also note that my partner and I have been having unprotected sex and were quite discouraged that I have not gotten pregnant. All along I was thinking maybe it was because of how long I was on the DEPO, but now I'm not so sure. I am very concerned, as I would love to be able to have children. This is quite depressing and is really putting a hold on my life. I miss a lot of work and was even discouraged enough to withdraw from my college courses due to the pain and frequent urination. I just had another really bad bought of sharp, stabbing pain in my pelvic area and am thinking about going to the ER or making an appointment with my doctor. any insight would be greatly appreciated!
