Finally got an answer to my cramping and it's due to cysts. I'm not pleased about it but at least it's an answer. The nurse practitioner said my cycle had started when she did the exam and I tried to explain to her that the "spotting" I'm experiencing is slight in comparison to my normal cycle. Nevertheless, she insisted to count yesterday as day 1. Today...still very little flow. Unlike me.
I had ovarian cysts from high school through college, it then worsened to cervical cancer. I am concerned, even though my pap came back clear for cancer, that the cysts may be starting all over again and the cancer may come back.
The nurse said that the cysts won't keep me from getting pregnant. (I had cysts over 10 years ago and they stayed for a long time). She seemed very upbeat but unwilling to listen to what's gone on with me. I don't know if that's because they were eager to get the next woman in the room.
Words of wisdom?
