I'm very worried because I've never had this problem before. I haven't had my period for over 3 months and finally last week, I got it again. I noticed that since getting it, I had a loss of appetite, getting full very quickly, and very dark stool. I thought it was black until I look closely. It's only dark, not tarry or has a weird smell.

My period is now over but I still have the dark stool problem. I'm currently not on pills.

I'm freaking out because this is one of the symptoms of abdominal cancer. Does anyone else had the same problem?

  • I don't want to scare you, but while the things you describe may be perfectly harmless, yes, these can also be signs of ovarian cancer. Don't wait. Get checked out. It will relieve your mind if nothing's indeed wrong, and it may save your life if things aren't ok. Take care of yourself.
