I was wondering if anyone could help me.
I have been going to the Dr. about 7/8 months. At first I was having vaginal pain, and was diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis. I was perscribed with antibiotics, and when that didn't work, with a vaginal cream. After the pain worsened, and I started experiencing pain during intercourse, and abdominal pain. I was perscribed with amitriptiline for pain (this is a low dose~10mg of antidepressants), the pills stopped working as well, and was perscribed 20 mg.
I saw an OB, and was given a pelvic ultrasound to check for fibrois tumors, becuase she found my uterous to be overly enlarged, and seemed to be pressing on my bladder. During this time I was having very painful bowel movements, that are so bad at times they would bring me to tears. Nothing was found, and now is suspected to be endometriosis, becuase of the pain, and I alos have prolonged menstral cycles sometimes 13/17 or even 20 days long. The Dr. has put me on birth control pills, and told me to take more fiber, and to walk about 45 min. a day (she wants me to do this for 3 months, and if the pain doesn't recede, she will do a laporoscopy, to check for endometriosis.
Today I am (was worse this morning) having extreme pain just below my tail bown, whenever I sit, as well as pain while walking walking, and extreme pain just behind my pelvic bone, that made me want to drop to my knees. I have also through all of this had very bad lower back pain....
My question is does any of this sound like symptoms of vaginal cancer? Do any of you have any suggestions?
