A few years ago I was an egg donor (actually a few times), but after one of the retrievals I felt a discomfort around where my right ovary would be, the doctor than said it was normal and would go away with time.
That was at about 5 years ago, that tenderness came up throughout the years but never really stayed too long. Now, more and more recently I feel a burning pain on the right side around the same area and the last few days on the left as well but not nearly as often or as intensely, when I lay on my back I can feel by touch a harder longish "something" too on the right side, which also seem to come and go. I couldn't tie this symptoms to anything, the last 2 months I also have an irregular bleeding, despite that I am on the pill and I am good at taking it regularly. The bleeding usually takes no more than 4 days at any part between my actual periods, it is pretty light, mostly dark brown in color and rather thick almost "skin like", but not much in volume. For years I have a constant lower back-ace at the very bottom of my spine, and I experienced a shooting and numbing sensation into my right leg occasionally.
I don't have health insurance, and I am really scared what might be wrong with me, does anybody have any advice where to turn to in Chicago, which won't cost an arm and a leg for a diagnoses. I am also wondering if I should expect a surgery, so on and so forth.
I turned 35 this year, I haven't been pregnant yet, and I really wanted to start to have kids no later than 35, can this pain effect fertility?
In many ways my husband and I are not ready for kids, but I certainly don't want to risk of waiting too long.
I really appreciate any advice I can get.
