Severe low back pain that was rapid onset. I was just diagnosed with a Prolapsed cervix. I also have ovarian cysts that one time was hemorrhagic and nearly fatal. I had an ablation 3 years ago and have recently had some vaginal bleeding. Tender abs.

If you have post ablation spotting, especially if it is painful, this may also be contributing to back pain. So see your GYN, and then a back specialist as necessary ...Read more

I can't get medical attention from a specialist or gp or even hospital. Have ovarian cysts and enlarged ovary (lots of pain & bleeding constantly)?

I can't get medical attention from a specialist or gp or even hospital. Have ovarian cysts and enlarged ovary (lots of pain & bleeding constantly)?

Birth control pills: Because you are 27, the chances of cancer are very very low. You should get medical attention anyways. You probably are suffering from pcos polycystic ovarian syndrome. Oral contraceptives will control your mensis and decrease the cysts. Loosing 10% of your total body weight with a low carb diet should also help. Again my advice is to see a md, or at least research pco. ...Read more
