I've been wondering lately if I have some kind of problem with my female organs... I mean, I had an ultrasound done not too long ago, and I do have an ovarian cyst that's just slightly bigger than normal. The OBGYN tried to do a pelvic exam on me, but it hurt too much so he quit... And he talked about doing a laparscopy on me. (Need to make another appointment)

Anyway... I've just been wondering if maybe there is something wrong because not too long after my period ended on May 15th... I had some spotting... and passed a couple of clots (at least, I think they were clots... I hope they were just clots)... and I just started my period again... yesterday or the day before... I can't remember.... Had this really long string of blood (kind of just stayed there, like it was stuck to me) come out of me on the first day... and I've been passing a lot of clots since then... Big ones, too. At least about the size of my index finger.

I know clotting is normal... but... I dunno... :(...

Maybe I'm just worrying too much...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

It's ok to worry when our bodies do things we aren't used to!!! That's for sure.  I don't know a great deal about other peoples periods, but it does sound like the extra clots and bleeding might be a good reason to see a doctor.  When are you having the lap done?

I hope you're not too freaked out about this, but do see someone if it continues okay?

Oh I know where you are coming from!!! Ever since I had my IUD removed ive had some crazy stuff happening. My doc says its normal, just sometimes our bodies tend to get out of wack. I dunno sometimes I want a more clear answer than that but I have to go with it for the moment.
I really do hope you get to feeling better and things clear up for you.
Stuff like that can really make the mind wonder and scare you.

Good luck and hugs!

There's a huge history of benign cysts in my family (although I seem to have been spared any apparent symptoms). My one sister has some rather irregular aspects to her cycle, especially when she's not on the pill. I think that worst symptoms any of us have had are pain and tenderness like you describe.

There are many non-serious things that could be causing your problems, and the doctor will be able to sort it all out for you, I'll bet.

Could they be uterine fibroids? I had an ultrasound done for some 'tumors' I found on my right breast---and they were liquid---so, they are fibroids! I also get pains 'down there'---but, will be discussing this with my OB when I see him in July----no bleeding for me---but, my periods are so irregular now---and I get severly nauseous a few days before my period gets here---and I am experiencing things with my period I never have before----I don't know if I am entering "peri-menopause"---probably----but, I want it all checked out-----

Hang in there---but, don't wait too long!
