Smidge of history- had hysterectomy two 1/2 years ago due to heavy/painful periods and cysts on ovaries. I kept one ovary and my cervix. I have three kids, 37 YO
Few months after the hysterectomy I began noticing a bit of blood after sex and pain during it. It happened several times. I called GYN she said that it’s normal because of hormones or something. I said ok!
so I’ve been brushing it off- as well as other symptoms- I wasn’t even aware had to do with each other - such as the days of pain that seemed like period cramps. I was so confused because I didn’t have a uterus - how could I have “period cramps”. Then the cramping and back pain came together. Then I would randomly spot new and old blood. Tissue... etc.
i avoided sex. It hurt then. It hurt after. It hurt to wear pants for days afterwards. My husband naturally was frustrated. I didn’t want another surgery. I assumed it was adhesions or endometriosis, or something stupid and I was just going to spend money on nothing.
I had NO idea these were symptoms. I began sleeping with an electric blanket on my back- getting left side leg pain that just felt like a dull ache (like when you have the flu) and now bleeding during BM.
I didn’t even tell my GP about this- my sister works in my GP’s office and told her a few of my issues- they referred me to my GYN (for insurance coverage) 2 days ago . The GYN called yesterday and had ordered a transvaginal for today.
I was reading a little bit online because I was confused why I’m having one. I don’t see anyone else being sent for one?
Please tell me there are other causes of this stuff!! I just assumed she’d do a pap first and see if there was any reason to worry. I’m freaking out just a little.
