Hi, I'm 18 years old and I've been experiencing this problem for a little while now but recently it has become more of an annoyance. Lately i am getting dull pains all over my lower abdominal area, in my sides, what seems to be ovaries, my lower back, etc. My periods have always been regular and slightly on the heavy side at times but being on birth control has helped to lighten it a lot. Sometimes when I have sex with my boyfriend i will feel a dull ache at some part of my abdominal area when he penetrates deep. I am nervous that I could have cysts or endometreosis; however, my digestive system is not very healthy and I eat a lot of cheese, and I get constpated alot. I have been told that being constipated can cause these symptoms as well but i have taken laxatives recently. I am making a doctor's appt but I have a feeling she will simply tell me that there is nothing wrong and send me on my way without taking any tests, like usual. Another odd thing is that I am sometimes experiencing dull pains in both sides of my chest. I also have extremely terrible anxiety. Help?
