Ok so as of late I have been very very sick with the Flu, I haven't been eating much and pooing is a little sparse and requires a bit of effort.
The pain in my abdomen starts from the bell button and goes all the way down, it is also very hard in some places, namely where I suspect my ovaries are. However I just finished my period 5 days ago, so It couldn't be cramping.
I did have sex the day after I finished my period, both times it was protected, but the second condom appearred to have caused some allergic reaction- the hole of my vagina was red and rather itchy.
It wasn't thrush, and i know this because I have had thrush over 4 times in the past 6 months.
I visited the doctor yesterday because I had been experiencing some strange discharge from my vagina and she gave me several 'smears' and is having those tested.
She said that currently that area appears to be healthy. But we'll just have to wait and see what the results say.
In anycase I suspect there may be something wrong either with my digestive tract or an infection in my womb.
Also take into account that I had severe iron deficient anemia at the beginning of the year, so that may have been what has caused such a collapse in my immune system.
Is there anything else that you think it might be, and if so how do you think I can help get rid of it?
