    I Had A Similar Problem!
    An_253305 posted:
    I had a similar problem two months ago. I went to two OB/GYNS and a Gynecologist and had a Transvaginal Ultrasound, two pregnancy tests, and two Pelvic Exams before it was concluded that I had a Right Ovarian Cyst combined with Perimenopause. I also went to the ER due to Nausea and the inability to sleep one night. I refused to take any pain or nausea medication the ER wanted to give me until a possible pregnancy was ruled out due to these medications potentially harming a Fetus. The result was nineteen weeks of nausea, bloating, ovarian and abdominal pain, and finally a five day period after six months of having no period at all. I wish you all the best. I hope you don't have as much trouble finding out what is wrong as I did!
