Painful Ovaries
About 2 years after my sterilisation, i started experiencing bleeding, about a week aftr my periods. This carried on for about another 2 years. The doctor put me on the pill for 3 months, saying it was a normal/abnormal thing??? This helped for a few months, then it started all over again. I don't have medical aid and can therefore not afford to go to a doctor. Besides the period, i also experience swelling, painful ovaries,sometimes it feels as if my insides are going to fall out. At times i experience piercing pain in my pelvic region. Intercourse is also sometimes painful. I have to move to make myself comfortable (it is as though something is in the way) I would realy like to know what the problem could be.
many Thanks

You would need an exdamination to see what the problem is. You may have fibroids in the uterus or an infection or some other problem. If you do not have a medical aid, you should go to one of the state hospitals to find out what the problem is.
