Hello all,
I would greatly appreciate some advice here...


First I'll start with some history..
Three years ago I had a miscarriage. I bled for 3 months straight, and went to the doctors to complain, so they sent me to get a ultra sound, and everything came back fine, and a few days later the bleeding stopped. A couple months later I found out I had chlamydia, and when I found out I had my miscarriage I was not tested for stds. So theirs a slight possibility I had chlamydia when i was pregnant. I was then treated, and put on a birth control pill (which i did not like at all). I went off the birth control pill after 3 weeks, and about six months later my periods became somewhat normal again.

Since then I've had around 5 urinary tract infections, and 2 bladder infections.

A year and a half ago I started getting morning sickness, and it still occurs to this day. I ignored it at first thinking maybe it was because my body couldn't handle not eating over night. However, Its so bad now that I have to force myself to eat breakfast, and most times I do not eat at all in the mornings.

My periods have been abnormal again since august or so of last year. I'll get them for weeks even months at a time, with maybe a week or two break inbetween. They are heavier than they use to be, and I get a lot of blood clots I never use to get. A few times the blood clots came out dry, and very sticky.

In October of 06, I went to the doctor, he told me yet again I had another urinary tract infection. He also did a pap smear, and 2 weeks later i found out that my tests came back abnormal. The doctor said that I had a typical glandular cells, and that It was nothing serious to worry about, and for me to come back in 6 months for a follow up pap. I was also put on medication(flagyl) to treat my urinary tract infection. My periods were still abnormal but because I was already sick and tired of going to the doctors over and over again I just ignored it.

Until Christmas night..i went to the emergency, because I had a lump growing on the outside of my labia that had grew to the size of a grape in 2 weeks. Not to mention it was so sore i could barely sit. I was freaking out because obviously I had no idea what it was, and was concerned I may have had herpes or genital warts. I went in, and found out that it had been a infected Bartholin gland cyst. He then had to cut it open and drain the fluid. I was then told that I still had a urinary tract infection (or i had caught it again not really sure). So i was put back on flagyl and another antibiotic drug.

Since then for the last 6 months I've been feeling very fatigue, light-headed at times, and ive almost fainted a few times. In Apirl I decided to go back to the doctors, and tell him that I was fed up with all the urinary tract infections, and my constant bleeding. He then gave me another pap test, and a urine test. My urine test came back clean, and my pap test came back normal?... (I was not sexually active in that 6 months time to contract any stds, and ive still haven't been sexually active for the last 11 months).

He also gave me a blood test to test for thyroids, and other things. The test also came back clear. I was not put on any medication to stop the bleeding nor was I given a ultra sound. I was pretty pissed off at this stage, and left the doctors confused.

Since then, my symptoms have been getting worse, now ive been having a lot of chest pains, feeling very light headed and dizzy (specially if i stand up to fast), still morning sickness, ive been short of breath and sometimes it even hurts to breath, and I've been bleeding for 3 months straight. My periods have been pretty heavy, and ive been having massive blood clots. My appetite has decreased a lot, and Ive been sleeping alot. Before I goto sleep at night sometimes I'll knock right out, as before it took me about an hour to fall asleep. In a matter of seconds after laying down im out. Im very pale looking, and I have huge bags under my eyes all the time.

I went to the doctors 2 weeks ago, complaining about my chest bothering me. He checked my blood pressure, listened to my chest, and said everything sounded fine. He insisted it could be because of stress. I also explained that I had my period for 3 months. He told me that I should go and get a ultra sound. I've booked a ultra sound for august 6th (which is the soonest they can get me in).

The last week ive been having sudden urges of having to pee. The last 2 days its gotten even worse. It feels like a urinary tract infection, but MUCH worse than ive EVER had before. I've peed about 8 times in the last 2 hours, and when I go pee i only realease a tiny amount, and my pelvic absolutely KILLS. It feels as if its burning inside, not on the outside of my vagina.

Im so SICK AND TIRED of no one being able to tell me whats really going on. I've been in and out of the doctors hundreds of times the last year, and I feel like my problem is being ignored, and no one is helping me to find out whats wrong. It is my body, and I think I have the right to know whats going on. Im in pain, I feel sick, I have no energy, and Im just TIRED OF IT ALL! Sorry :(.

Does anyone have any advice for me? Should I be concerned at all? Im 22 years old and Im scared that something is wrong.

I should also add that my mother had ovarian cancer, and so did my grandmother. My mom had to get a hysterectamy 4 years ago.
