Hi I recently had a internal sonogram as I was pregenant and had a termination. However, when the doctor entered the probe I found it very painful and he told me that under nocircumstances should this be painful. Anyway she was able to insert it whilst I winced, and she said that no wonder it was painful as I had a cyst measuring 5cm on my right ovary. This doesn't surprise me as before I fell pregnant I was being invetigated for either Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, Ovarian Cyst or OVarian Cancer. My consultations with my doctor had only got to the point where we were doing swabs and these had yet to happen.

Let me give you some PMH. In December 2007 I had a termination and a coil was inserted at the same time. However I then went on to get a very bad infection, which wasn't picked up until 6 months later and which my doctor says was the worst she had seenin her career. The coil was removed and I was treated with antibiotics. However the infections persisted and became recurrent. They would disappear once treated with antibiotics oly to come back two months later. They would leave me in agony, very fatigued and generally quite sick. About three/four months ago I went to the doctor as I had perment pains in my lower abdo, sometimes in my left side and then in my right intermittent. She did say that she could feel that my ovaries were enlarged and that she wanted swabs to be done. That is all we got to before I became pregnant.

For the past year or o I have been feeling increasingly tired and weak. I find that the slightest exersion can put me in bed for days. Especially in the past week I have severe and persistant pains in my lower abdo - especially my right side, I have lost my appetite and I feel very fatigued and weak. I have slept all weekend but feel no better.

I had a surgical termination on Thursday just gone so not sure if the fatigue can be caused by that or this cyst. The sonographer did say she suspects that it could be leaking, would this make me feel this tired?

My question is should I wait and go down the GP route of being referred to a gyaenacologist or should I go to the Emergancy Room (A&E) if I continue to feel like this? Also would the cyst be to blame for the recurrent pelvic infections?
