I'm 27 with 3 wonderful children. So I am thankful for that... but here is my question. I have had lower righ abdominal pain, right lower back pain, gained on weight, spotting in between menstrual cycles, I don't know if I have been running a fever or not, but I get really hot and wake up at night cold because I am drenched in sweat.... So I'm thinking I am running fevers, I am exhausted and very tired lately, and this is pretty embarassing but it hurts during intercourse. I typed in my complaints on google and it brought up ovarian cancer. I have had a history of HPV. I had my tubes tied 2 years ago this last april. I had surgery back in October to remove a cyst, that happen to not be there when they went to do the surgery... so it was pointless money spent for that. Should I ask my doctor (which I switched since my surgery in October) to check me for Ovarian Cancer? I had both grandmothers pass away due to cancer. One was breast and the other was (they think) Ovarian Cancer is where it started, BUT at the time of her diagnoses it was spread throughout her body. Is it true when the say it skips a generation? I am a bit concerned, but don't like to make a big deal out of something that isn't. Does that make any sense? I have gained on 25 pounds in a matter of 3 months. I have a lot of bloating too. One day my jeans might fit ok, but the next I can't get them on. I don't get it. Any other suggestions? Can it be stress causing all of this discomfort for me? Sometimes it almost feels like my lower abdomen is contracting.. That's the only way for me to discribe the feeling. I could use all the input possible. I see my doctor on tuesday for my 6 month check, since I have to go in every six months due to my history of HPV. I would appreciate suggestions. I'm just confused I think.
