Please help me!!!!!
Please help, I'm experiencing pain that I suspect is from my ovaries. Its sore both from the front sides to the back side. That area gets so uncomfortable. Almost 2 months ago my gynae discoverd that I've got fibroids. Could this pain be fibroids growing or is the pain because I'll be getting my period next week monday? What should I do?I'm scared one day my ovaries are gonna burst. I'm puzzled honestly, I'm 27 and looking forward to start a family next year.

I did send this to the gynae forum and haven't had a reply from her.

Tee, the fact that you have fibroids and that you’re near your period may be to blame, but it is difficult to say what the cause is without being able to examine you first. If you’re on the (contraceptive) pill, you can rule out your ovaries. You really don’t have to be worried that you’re ovaries will burst, but I suppose that an ovarian cyst might. The safest would be to see your doctor and make sure. Good luck.
