I am 43 years old. I recently had a transvaginal ultrasound due to a family history of ovarian cancer. (My mother died from OC at the age of 53.) The ultrasound showed a simple cyst on each ovary, which didn't concern my doctor. She was concerned about my thickened, irregular endometrium and possible polyp. She said that it could look like I was getting ready to have a period but I haven't had a period since last November. Because of that, she scheduled a D&C and hysteroscopy for November 2.
Last night I started my period for the first time in 11 months. The flow is fairly light but it definitely feels like a period. I'm having cramps and back pain.
Now I'm wondering if I still need the D&C. Should I call my doctor and cancel? Or maybe we should have a look anyway. Anyone have advice for me?
