Hello. Here's my question:
I've been experiencing weird sensations after fooling around with my partner the a few weeks ago. I was at the very end of my period, had the menstrual cup in, but he slightly entered me (unprotected). Soon after (or during) I felt like I was chafing. In the morning, the sensation was still there, and seemed to kind of burn more. My discharge that morning was chunky, so I thought I was getting a yeast infection, but that went away immediately. My discharge since has seemed maybe a little more watery than normal, but it is a normal color (cloudy white) with no foul smell. I thought it could be a UTI but I didn't have any pain with urination, or any trouble with emptying my bladder, though I did experience some more frequent need to use the bathroom. Along with the burning I experienced nausea quite badly for 3-4 days, some slight lower back pain by the 5th, as well as cramping in my left side, around my ovary. The cramping around my ovary has persisted even now (10 days later) but it isn't so persistent. I also had cramping around my right ovary about 2 days ago.
I was freaked out looking for symptoms and found that mine sounded a lot like chlamydia or ovarian cysts. I've been tested for STD's before being with him, and he says he was also tested, so the likelihood of that is slim, but I do have a doctor's appointment later this week. Could it be a cyst that ruptured? I have had pre-cancerous cells detected on my pap tests in the past. Could that have something to do with it? The only thing that seems to affect me now is still a little discomfort around my left ovary, off and on.
I find the chances REALLY slim, but I do have a short cycle (24 days) and the nausea made me think I could possibly be pregnant, too, but I think that is SO unlikely even though my ovulation days followed around the time we fooled around. I'm very sensitive in many regards, so it wouldn't surprise me if I felt something like that earlier than most, but I'm pretty sure burning sensations in the nether regions isn't usually a sign of that? =P
Thanks so much for your input!
