Hi Lisa! I don't have any real advice for you as I haven't dealt with OVCA but I am sending you postive vibes that everything is okay. I echo other poster's sentiments that you should go to the doctor to get everything checked. Even if it's not OVCA, whatever it is should be dealt with since the symptoms are causing you discomfort.

My one piece of advice is to listen to your body. If you know something is not right and doctors are "dismissing" you, please seek additional opinions. I had severe menstrual pain for years and my doctor insinuated it was all in my head--never did anything. I had a 2nd opinion and an u/s, laparoscopy were performed. I was diagnosed with endometriosis and adenomyosis--both very painful menstrual conditions. After the birth of my daughter (my last child), I had a Mirena IUD put in that has been shown to benefit those with endo/adeno pain. For the first time in many, many years, I am PAIN FREE! It's been wonderful and I believe it was my persistence that I WASN'T crazy that led to a proper diagnosis of my problem!

GL! Let us know what you find out! I sincerely wish you the best!
