I'm a new member on the forum. I'm worried about some of the symptoms I've been having the last 2 months and from what I've been reading online. I'm 30 y.o. (never pregnant) and my periods use to be normal. I would get them the day I was suppose to and never had any major issues. In the last 2 months I have gotten my period 4x all two weeks apart. I have DEF noticed how bloated and how far my stomach has been protruding! It's EVERDAY for 2 months. It has a heavy feeling/pressure to it. I don't know how else to describe it. I've gained 5-8 pounds according to my scale but I strength train 5x/week consistently and have been an athlete majority of my life. For years I was 140lbs and now it's reading 145-148. My weight only ever fluctuated a pound or two. At first I thought a pound here or there was related to muscle, but 8 pounds?!?! I don't think so! I tend to get pains in my stomach. I figured it was from the bloating esp b/c it just won't go away and its uncomfortable. When I eat, I get full very quickly and by the way my stomach looks/feels you would think I am pregnant. My mom in 2010 had a fibroid tumor and had a hysterectomy. My gram (her mom) had cervical cancer at 39 and also had a hysterectomy. I urinate more than normal which has been an on going issue since I was in high school. No medications for an over active bladder ever worked that were prescribed. I was at my gyno in January and all was fine. I am making an appt with a new gyno since I currently moved. I'm concerned b/c of my family history with my mom/gram (my brother also has cancer; Hodgkins) plus the symptoms I've been having esp the bloating/protruding stomach which is quite uncomfortable. The bloating is easily noticable with all my clothes. I'm just concerned and not sure what to think.
Thank you in advance for reading and responding. Hope everyone has a good night/day
