Very little. Looking back I’d been a tiny bit bloated for a while, but imperceptibly.

One day my bowel habits suddenly changed, I thought it was a bug. I had diarrhoea but no other signs, once a day for a few weeks which then cleared up but I was left with persistent bloating that felt similar to pregnancy, like it was liquid not gas.

I did not feel full, have urinary issues or any of the other signs. The bloating triggered the GP to test for CA125 which was raised. I have stage 3 OC and I am 37.

@lucie333 This is what you need to be aware of

If you have symptoms that are worrying you, PLEASE go to your GP. A simple ultrasound will look at your ovaries and if you have symptoms you ought to be seen within 2 weeks.

It doesn't matter what other feel noticed - it's what you are experiencing.

You can also call/ contact the above charity.
