Hello everyone, I am a 23 y/o, sexually active female. I'm not on the pill, although I was for about 2 years. In 2007 I had a d&c. About two weeks ago, I started to feel some discomfort in my left pelvic area. When I lie on my back and press down, I can feel as if something is swollen .. Not a lump, but more like a tube.. The feeling isn't debilitating or anything, but it is annoying and obviously worrisome. I went to my gyno at the beginning of the year for a check up and a pap smear. I told her about the pain as I've beein having it off and on for sometime.. She did a transvaginal ultrasound and said that everything was fine and perhaps the feeling is due to constipation.. But I'm not sure if that's true as I don't think I am.. My periods are normal and it doesn't hurt me anymore during sex or anything.. I'm wondering if I should go by another gyno for a second opinion.. Thoughts??
