In May 2006 I saw my Primary Care Doctor for extreme Left Lower Quadrant pain. I was first diagnosed as having a blader infection. - the pain was so bad I was doubled over.
When I experienced the same pain the next month with the arrival of my period she stated is was uterine contractions. I explained my flow was extremely heavy and the clots so large it felt like I was having kittens. She again stated it was uterine contractions.
On 1/5/06 a different Dr. (we had to change due to insurance) order a transabdominal ultrasound due to dysmenorhea that studt revealed my uterus was 8.7 x 4.5 x 5.2cm and the endometrial stripe measured 4mm. The right ovary measured 2.1 x 1.3 x 2.8cm and the left measured 2.0 x 1.8 x 2.1cm. there was no free fluid. Impression negative pelvic sonogram.
On 7/10/08 I underwent a transvaginal sonogram it demonstrated that my uterus was 10 x 6 x 6cm and the endometrial stripe was 11mm. A 1.6cm Anterior uterine fibroid was suggested. The right ovary was 2.4x 1.2x 2.3cm and the left ovary was 3.8 x 3.4 x 2.8 cm. Myometrium diffusely is mildly inhomogenis. No focal lesion other than small fibroid. Impression: a 1.6-cm anteroir uterine fibroid, Endometrial thickening, upper limits of normal, slightly great at 11 mm. Normal ovaries.
My Dr. Stated it looks like your going to have your period for a long time.
