pelvic ache, wierd periods, any ideas?
40 years old) my periods have changed about 2 years ago,  They got heavy for a few days & then stayed extremely light for weeks. (just there when I'd wipe) one time it lasted an entire month. This past month I've had a dull ache on my left side between my belly button & hip.  when I'm busy I don't notice it but if I'm not It's there. At one point in all this I lost the ability to pee & had to be catheterized for a week & then I learned to cath myself.  My last period I past 2 large clots, one was like an index finger & the other was look like raw liver about the size of a silver dollar.  

Doctor gave me propox.  Doctors don't know if pelvic ache & heavy periods are related--tons of tests ordered.  Blood work, endo biopsy, ultrasound, transvaginal ultrasound, x-ray of spine, pap test & last week a abdominal ct scan with contrast to rule out a hernia & it did--no hernia.  I did get a copy of the ct test & it mentioned a fatty liver intrusion & the person who did the test seen a bicornuate/septated uterus.  no diverticulitis.

I had so much done, should I quit searching,  no horrible reports,  Would any of those tests showed a ovarian cysts? or bladder infection? or cancer? one doctor suggested a gastro doctor.  Should I, try that yet,   The pills propox make me sleep & those quite times is when I don't feel so good.  doctors are always asking about my bowel habits  should I start laxatives, enemas or something?

I have an appointment with the obgyn to talk about getting a hysterectomy.  I know that will cure my period issues.  

any thoughts-- I have so much going on & 5 doctors have checked me.  
I can't believe this is all in my head. but they think the inability to urinate is a mental problem.

Thanks

the vaginal ultrasound will tell you if anything is going on with the ovaries and uterous. I had a hysterectomy this past July and I gotta tell you I have never felt better. I would wait for all the test results before you start taking anything. If the obgyn suggest you jump in with both feet and get it done, you will not be sorry. Noone should be in that much pain. Good luck

Menopause== doctors say no, but after reading many posts it sure seems like its the start of perimenopause.  I had a transvaginal ultra sound 8/7/07 and the report doesn't say anything is wrong.

I'm 40 & I asked about a hysterectomy & he won't do one.
I don't know why.

thanks for your reply
