I have been having pelvic pain for the last 2 months with fluttering in my lower stomach & pelvic area. It feels like it do when you're pregnant and baby is moving. But negative blood and urine pregnancy test. My menstrual is regular and on time each month. My gyno ordered transabdominal & transvaginal ultrasounds for pelvic pain & gallbladder. She called after she got the results and said my gallbladder was negative and my pelvic area was all good. But i was still having pains so I got a copy of the reports on my own. I'm no doctor but something don't seem right about the report. Here is a copy:

Findings: TRANSABDOMINAL: The uterus measures 11 x 5.1 x 6.0 cm. The endometrium is 1.1 cm in thickness. No definate myometrial masses are noted.

The right ovary measures 2.5 x 1.9 x 1.7 cm. The left ovary measures 2.5 x 2.2 x 1.5 cm. There are multiple small follicles in both ovaries. There is no evidence of an adnexal mass or free fluid.

TRANSVAGINAL: The myometrium is heterogeneous. Several small fibers are noted in the anterior and posterior fundus. The largest posteriorly measures 0.9 x 0.9 x 0.6 cm. The endometrium is 0.7 cm in thickness. The right ovary measures 2.5 x 2.1 x 2.0 cm & the left ovary measures 2.8 x 1.8 x 2.5 cm. There is no evidence of an adnexal mass or free fluid.

IMPRESSION:

1. Enlarged fibroid uterus with 2-subcentimeter fibroids seen in the anterior and posterior fundus.

2. Normal appearance of the ovaries, adnexa and endometrium

I think fibroids are noted on your report. Fibroids would cause pelvic pains my dear. This was what prompted me to go to the doctor because of pelvic pain. Exactly what you have was what I was dignosed with in November of 2011. Take it easy and don't worry cause God has an answer to every situations.

Hi msann38, and welcome to the Women's Health board!

From what I've read, it is correct that an enlarged fibroid uterus could cause all the symptoms you are experiencing. Here is an article from the National Institutes of Health with more information: Uterine fibroids

Best of luck as you sort out how to manage the condition.
