  • Hello, Those could be symptons of anything, u really dont know unless u go the your ob/gyn and get checked out, and know that u are 18 it is really important to get paps every year. I doubt u have cancer. i just got an email from one of my girlfriends telling me the symptoms of ovarian cancer, i have most of them, the unexplained wait gain (10 pounds in one month), the bloating, fatigue, and so on maybe im just being paranoid, but i came across this website, and it said all the symptoms and how hard it is to detect, im 18 years old is that too young? i dont know help!!:confused: :(

  • I'm 17 going on 18. I think I might know what you're going through. I've been putting on nearly a kilo a week, face severe bloating, tiredness, etc. When I asked the doctor he just said "hormones". But I'm hardly eating anything, and have relatively "good" activity levels. This isn't an answer so much as a "you're not alone" post. It's scary.... xxx

  • If you started taking birth control pills this can cause quick weight gain, bloating and lots of other symptoms. Some women just don't tolerate this form of birth control! If you are having any lower abdominal pain could be cysts or fibroids. Bottom line - go to a good gyno and get checked out. If you can find one who is also interested in alternative med that would be best.Best wishes.DOM
