I had my last period at the beginning of June. I use a menstrual cup and I noticed something unusual while I was inserting it. It feels like a squishy knot. Almost like I was touching my cervix, but it was way too far down. I worried a little about it, but then decided it was probably a normal change from being on my period or maybe a little swelling or irritation from the cup. I finished my period and more or less forgot about it. I've had some pain off and on inside my vagina along with back aches and hard cramps that last for a day or two and then go away. I haven't had a period in almost three months. I have my tubes tied, but I have taken two pregnancy tests and they were both negative. Yesterday I noticed the pain in my vagina again and suddenly remembered the thing I felt in there in June. I checked again and it is still there. The pain won't go away and I am really starting to worry. I tried a couple of GYNs in the area and found one that would take my insurance. They made me fill out all of the paper work online before they would schedule an appointment and then told me it would be three weeks before they could see me (at 4 o'clock on a Friday afternoon, when they finally called to schedule the appointment). I am going to try other doctors on Monday. Has anyone had anything like this before? Any ideas? I really don't want to go to the ER and I doubt they could help much anyway. I also really don't want to wait 3 weeks to see a doctor.
