I'm 30 years old and have not had a menstrual cycle in 4 months. I'm definitely not pregnant. I am having pain in my ovary area (entire area/both sides) that is sometimes sharp but always noticeable. I was first treated for pelvic inflammatory as a precaution even though I did not have any other symptoms of the disease (discharge/std..) The antibiotics seemed to make the pain go away but as soon as I finished them it was back. I then requested a trans-vaginal ultrasound which turned up absolutely nothing. I feel bloated generally, but not tired or nauseous. The pain seems to get worse daily, and still no menstrual cycle. I have no insurance and am a full-time student so I'm not sure how to proceed. Has anyone had these symptoms? Is it likely cancer?
Not getting periods for 4 months does not directly mean cancer. Also your ultrasound has not showed anything abnormal. The first thing however is to induce a period if you are certain that there is no pregnancy. Progestins will get back normal menses. If not then it will be necessary to consult a gynaecologist for an examination.
