    Lower Quadrant pain CT shows prominent cervix now irregular periods
    maisy08 posted:
    Dr. ordered a CT scan after complaints of lower left quadrant pain and nothing remarkable other than a prominent cervix was shown. I have had a PAP recently and all was normal. 6 months ago I was diagnosed w/ a lg functional ovarian cyst on the left it has resolved but since I have had heavier than normal periods but regular 28 day cycle. Now I have had 2 periods in 18 days and again they are slightly heavier. What is going on? When is cause for concern?
