I had an ectopic pregnancy and my right Fallopian tube was removed, since then I have ovary pain?
Hi I’m a female and I’m almost 37 years old 13 months ago I had an eptopic pregnancy and my right Fallopian tube was removed and since then I have experienced bilateral ovary pain I went to the OBGYN today and express my concern about having the pain I’m also experiencing bleeding every 14 to 17 days last like a period typically would and the OB told me that it was PMS and prescribed birth control and schedule me for a follow-up ultrasound in a month. Additionally during the laparoscopic procedure for the eptopic pregnancy, they cut a window in an ovarian cyst that was the size of a lemon on my left ovary. the doctor that I saw today seemed disinterested in helping me identify why was in pain and very quick to say that it was PMS I’m just not OK with that reply, nor am I OK with being put on birth control. I have a history of migraine and estrogen aggravates them. When I asked about it he said I would be fine. I’m not intending for this to be a gripe session against the doctor I’m really truly looking for someone to provide some form of guidance as they’ve been in pain now for 13 months and I am really at my Wit’s End and I really need some help any suggestions will be welcomed and I’m very thankful for your time also I had to talk into a microphone because my texting on my phone is horrible so I apologize in advance for the lack of punctuation and possible duplicate word speak
i have gone through your medical history and understand your concern.
I am sure,this is not just PMS.There is something more to it.
You should get a ultrasound (abdominal and trans vaginal) right away.
ovarian cysts/PCOS may be the possibilities.
i suggest you to get a second opinion from another gynecologist.
In my opinion you have endometriosis (almost 100% sure) which was the original cause of ectopic pregnancy, since your pain is in both sides I will rule out the ruptured cyst being the cause
If it is PMS then drugs of choice should be SSRIs
It could not be PMS ..you are right..
Possibilities are new polycystic ovarian syndrome or endometriosis..
The ultrasonography can confirm either of them..both gives this severe pain and disturbed menstruation period ..
Have you gained weight recently ?
Heavy bleeding in periods?
Hair growth abnormally?
Pain with intercourse?
To all three of the Dr.s I would like to extend my most sincere gratitude for the opinions you provided.
I was able to get in for ultrasound with a new Dr. and discovered I had cysts on ovary and a uterine fibroid which explains the pain in addition to the abnormal mensuration.
I received a full blood work up, hormone panel, pregnancy test in addition to excellent service. I’m being treated with progesterone in hopes there is a reduction in size. Will follow up with my new Dr. next week. Hoping they respond to treatment as the next recommendation/ option is surgery.
I’m feeling much better pain wise after taking the progesterone. Perhaps it’s just peace of mind, perhaps it’s that I was able to find a fantastic Dr. Whatever the case may be, I’m very appreciative to receive treatment.
It’s important to be able to communicate with the Dr and have symptoms evaluated and addressed and not just dismissed as PMS.
