Pain in Uterus? Worried

I have had pain really low down in my tummy(where they scan you for scan 1)Sort of ovary area. This has also been with pain in low back, hips,etc. I have been a bit dizzy and nauseas too.
Went to the doctor. He asked whether I was preggars, NO. He is sending me for a 'swob' test next Thursday.

It's really bugging me, and sore.

Have you checked your temp? And have you tested for pregnancy? Sorry, I did see the caps but it's always worth testing IMO if there is the slightest chance. Could be as simple as ovulation, maybe infection lots of could be's really, including a UTI??

calmriver - i was like this last week!! Didnt even consider preg test. my hips really ached and it sort of felt like i was contracting - hope it was just a bug or something

I have done 2 tests, but no. No temps. I know it's probably nothing, but the fact that it hurts, I can't really forget about it.

I thought it may be ovulation, as I have been b/fing the past 9 months, and have recently cut down to 1 feed a day. Maybe p's starting, but it has been like this for a week oor so.?

Has doc done swab now? If so hope that that shows something. No symptoms at all of a urine infection? Freguency of needing to go, stinging, foul smelling etc? Hopefully it will go away on its own. If it dosen't, please go to a GUM clinic. No stigma attached, and not suggesting you have anything. But I have had pelvic inflammatory disease several times over, and getting a diagnoses was a battle every time. Gp's aren't very up on it as far as I can tell. GUM clinics are specialist areas and much more thorough. Please don't sit and be ignored.

What is a GUM clinic, and how to do appointment thing?

Flossam Sat 28-May-05 20:05:04

Contact your local hospital. Where abouts are you? A GUM clinic stands for genito-urinary medicine. They specialise in yer bits!

Kingston, thanks a lot, swob not done till a weeks time, and horrible waiting.

Flossam Sat 28-May-05 20:18:17

Your swab should be done much quicker than that. You may have an infection that would have cleared up by then. Where is Kingston? I will try and look up stuff for you.

Sorry CR, saw your post earlier but had no time. Glad you have been hopefully sorted. You were right to chase it up. Your GP sounds like a waste of space. Hope you are feeling better soon.
