Early Pregnancy: At 233 hcg level, it is impossible to see an intrauterine pregnancy. So check your hcg again in 48 hrs and if it doubles, it is a good sign. If not you may have an ectopic Pregnacy. Take Tylenol (acetaminophen) for the pain if the level is 5/10? or more. I recommend you go see an Obgyn soon as well ...Read more

Fibroids (Definition)

They are often asymptomatic but they can also cause significant symptoms. It is the most common cause of heavy menstrual bleeding. Pelvic pain and increased urinary frequency ...Read more

I may have a fibroid can this cause my back and leg to be in pain. Along with pelvic pain and having the need to urinate a lot. I am in a lot if pain.?

See your doctor!: Back and leg pain could result from compression of the sciatic nerve, but it would be unusual for a uterine fibroid to cause this. You need to see your gynecologist for evaluation of your pelvic pain and urination; the back and leg pain could be related or a separate problem. It's not possible to diagnose these issues without a physical exam and probably some other tests. Good luck! ...Read more

Could be: Depending on the size, location of your fibroids - yes. They can cause pelvic pain, position changes can exacerbate sometimes. Other causes of positional pains can be: hernias, groin pulls, ovarian cysts. But it could definitely be due to fibroids if they are large. Honestly - small fibroids, (2cm or less, often do not cause pain). ...Read more

Urinating at night every hour between 10pm and 7am. Do I have fibroids or cysts. I have very bad pelvic pain.

Urinating at night every hour between 10pm and 7am. Do I have fibroids or cysts. I have very bad pelvic pain.

Probably not...: At age 26, your symptoms are more likely to be caused by some type of infection. You could have a bladder infection or an infection of the uterus/tubes/ovaries. There are other possibilities as well such as endometriosis or pregnancy. A cyst doesn't often make you urinate like this and large fibroids are very uncommon at age 26. See an Ob/Gyn to get a diagnosis and treatment. Best wishes! ...Read more

I was just diagnosed with uterine fibroids today and I'm having horrible pelvic pain that radiates to my back down my leg. Should I be worried?

Need further eval!: Fibroids are very common benign masses of uterus. They may cause feeling of pelvic heaviness or pressure symptoms on adjacent structures such as urinary frequency, stress incontinence, retention, & constipation. Few cases of sciatica (back pain going down the leg) caused by direct compression of the lumbosacral trunk by fibroids have been reported. Given severity of your pain, please see a doctor! ...Read more

Cervical Stenosis Hematometra post menopausal pelvic pain Fibroids. Dr wants 2wait 6wks b4 D and C. No thickening or blood. Can this resolve by itself?

Cervical Stenosis Hematometra post menopausal pelvic pain Fibroids. Dr wants 2wait 6wks b4 D and C. No thickening or blood. Can this resolve by itself?

Possibly yes: If your cervix is stenotic, you can accumulate "fluid" in your endometrial cavity which may be mucus, not blood? Bleeding will usually not occur if your cervix is closed The fact that " no thickening" of your endometrium was noted on sonogram is reassuring and means you probably do not have " hematometra" and that the "fluid" may resolve spontaneously in weeks to months. Ask for an office Pipelle ...Read more

I have multiple intramural fibroids, largest one 2cm. I have sharp continuous pelvic pain & missed 2 periods. Can I expect less pelvic pain after menses?

Not if fibroids rot: If the fibroids are degenerating inside (rotting) then the pain will not go away after the menstrual period. If the pain persists, go see your GYN MD for further evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

Can multiple fibroids size 2 cm cause consistent sharp pelvic pain, if they're associated with PCOS? Uterine stripe 1.5 cm, and missing 2 periods.

They could: Multiple small fibroids could definitely be associated with pelvic pain, though considering other causes too would be worthwhile. PCOS has no relation at all to pelvic pain or to fibroids. Good wishes. ...Read more

Had constant heavy vaginal bleeding and clotting with right sided pelvic pain for over a year. Waiting for hysterscope and ablation. No fibroids?

Had constant heavy vaginal bleeding and clotting with right sided pelvic pain for over a year. Waiting for hysterscope and ablation. No fibroids?

Good choice: An ablation is a great option for people with heavy periods who are finished having children. I assume you have had a pelvic sonogram already. Fibroids are easy to see on a sonogram. Even if you did have fibroids an ablation is still a reasonable option. ...Read more

Pelvic pain on lower left side for 2 months. Used the bathroom&seen bright red blood, had a period 2 weeks ago I have Ovarian cyst&fibroids what's wrong?

Pelvic pain: May be period variation, or could be related to fibroids/ or cysts, or can be an associated vaginal/PID infection, like mycoplasma, ureoplasma (treat with doxycycline (do not take if pregnant) and add Flagyl if concern for PID). May consider sonongram. Check blood /urine HCG. ...Read more

Can a left lateral wall fibroid cause cramp-like pelvic pain after urination and/or bowel movement? Or just in general?

Fibroids: Symptoms will depend on the size and location of the fibroids. Many women have few or no symptoms. The pain you have described could be related. If the pain persists in this manner, I would recommend following up with your physician for an exam, including urinalysis, and an ultrasound. ...Read more

When are uterine fibroids a concern? I was told I have a "small fibroid" after an MRI of the midsection. But I continue to sometimes have bleeding / spotting after my cycle and I very frequently have sharp pelvic pain. I am 33 and am not sexually active.

When are uterine fibroids a concern? I was told I have a "small fibroid" after an MRI of the midsection. But I continue to sometimes have bleeding / spotting after my cycle and I very frequently have sharp pelvic pain. I am 33 and am not sexually active.

If you have symptoms: Uterine fibroids can cause heavy bleeding during your menstrual cycle. This can lead to low blood counts (or anemia). The fibroids can also get big and push on the bladder, colon or pelvic bones. The pressure or bulk can cause you to have to urinate frequently (urinary frequency/urgency) and to wake up to urinate (nocturia). The pressure can cause bloating/constipation or pelvic or back pain. ...Read more

Back pain, pelvic pain, bulge in my vagina above my cervix. Several hpts and three blood tests negative, could this be a fibroid or a cyst? On implanon

Pelvic pain: At age 21, large fibroids are uncommon, but possible, and ovarian cysts can also occur. If serum pregnancy tests are negative, see your healthcare provider and obtain a pelvic ultrasound. Pelvic pain can also occur with prolonged urinary tract infections (URI's) and remember, not all produce the usual symptoms. Herpes Vaginalis cystitis can also mimic your symptoms. ...Read more

Pudenal neuralgia, ddd, fibroids, l4-l6 damage, chronic pelvic pain, cervical stenosis, cyst on ovary, cervical radidiculitis to name a few. Opioids?

At part of a pain: Control program, perhaps. Opioids should virtually never be the sole response to chronic pain. Neuropathic pain may respond to other treatments like gabapentin, Gabitril (tiagabine) and tricyclic antidepressants in low doses. Hormonal treatment may improve pelvic pain, myomectomy stop fibroid related problems. Opioids produce physical dependency, may cause rebound pain (hyperalgesia) and addiction in some. ...Read more

Endometriosis?: Your ob/gyn will rule out dangerous causes of your pain such as kidney infection. Unfortunately some conditions like endometriosis can only be diagnosed by surgery. If the pain is not bad enough then surgery may not be in your best interest. If you still have symptoms, keep seeing your doctor until you are happy with the long term plan. ...Read more
