DULL ACHE ON LEFT SIDE

Hi, this is the first time I have ever posted on anything like this, although I have often read for hours all the information available!  I have been experiencing what can only be described as an ache very low down and to the left. Its can in no way be described as painfull but i am very aware its there. Its not there all the time, and sometimes its stronger than others. I also have a history of what I call UTI's although these have never been confirmed. I usually take antibiotics for this problem. Also, whenever I have had a urine sample tested, it often (but not always) has blood present. ~Also, whilst pregnant with my son (now 5) i was hospitalised with severe kidney pain and it turned out i had a large stone. This caused probs throughout my preg but it seemed to have dissolved (or somthing) as it was not present when they did an ultrasound straight after delivery.  I also sometimes feel a dull ache in my lower back area (same sort of area as the pain i had in my kidneys although only vaguely there). I am going for a endoscopy next month which is routine as i have family history of bowel cancer. I dont know if these two things are linked. I have been trying to fall preg the last three months to no avail. I feel there is something wrong. Lastly, sometimes during orgasm (embarressing but I want to tell you everthing!) i have an unusual feeling of pain very low down (again, not a painful pain, but a pain nonetheless, it only lasts for the same length of time as the orgasm).  I realise these symptons are a strange mix but any advice would be most welcome. I am due to have a smear test tomoro as I feel its necessary in light of my probs (It has been a while since my last one).

Obviously, the usual cancer worries are very there in my head and i am desperate to discover what is wrong.

thanks in advance.

Hi there.  I'm so sorry you are having these problems.  It is possible you might have an ovarian cyst but you need to get a transvaginal ultrasound to confirm.  Please talk to your doctor about this.  Since this is the Ovarian Cancer forum I would encourage you to update us on the Ovarian Cyst forum where you will get lots of good advice.  Good luck!

Since you took the time to share the information, it might be easier to copy and paste it over on the cyst forum instead of trying to write it all out again.

Hi,

I have just come across this site. I am desperate to find out what is wrong with me.
I have a what I guess is a dull ache very love on my left side perhaps slighly above my groin area. It's not what I would describe as painful but I know it's there. Most of the time I am not aware of it. I usually experience it when I have an orgasm. I have been to see my doctor who refered me for an ultra sound of my ovaries. Nothing apart from som fibroids were found. These I was told are nothing to worry about and should just leave.
I'm concerned as know this feeling is very much there. Like I said it's not actually what I would describe as painful but it does take the pleasure out of having an orgasm. My main concern is what is it?

I would appreciate any advice you can give me on the matter.

Kind regards,
