I am a 40 year old female. I have no major health issues. I do have cysts in my ovaries and have seen a doctor for that problem. I have been having pain on my left side, near my left ovary and around my back for about a month now, I had ignored the pain because, I assumed it was my ovarie. About 5 days ago, I started cramping very bad and was a bit constipated. I took a couple of laxatives to avoid straining myself and they did not work on me. I took a couple more on the following day and the pills finally worked. Without any strain, I started bleeding very heavily every time I passed bowels. The blood is very dark and heavy with blood clots and this has been going on for 3 days now. I do plan to go visit a doctor but could you please tell me if this is normal or not.... I have researched information for this and have all the symptoms for colon cancer..except for weight loss. I have had rectal bleeding before but never like this.
