Stupid Uterus/Ovaries

Ok, I have had some cramping for the last week or so... this is HIGHLY unusual. One of the many benefits of the pill is that menstrual syndromes are fewer. As a result I have had all of about 3 cramps in my life. Yes, I know how lucky I am. And no, I'm not trying to whine now that I am experiencing modest, continuous discomfort, but it makes me worry.

Why would I be cramping now? I have no reason to suspect that I have O'd (and I've been checking) and therefore no reason to suspect a period. 

But son of bitch, I am bothered by the commotion going on down there. I've had other kinds of cramps before, you know... intestinal cramps, and these do not feel remotely similar. I am quite aware of the location of my ovaries, uterus and gallbladder. This is definitely in the ovary/uterus area. 

This leads me to suspect more ominous activities are going on down there, namely:
-Cysts (Um, I do have PCOS)
-fibroids (not likely, but not unlikely since they run in my family)
-endometriosis (been suspicious of this for awhile now)
-polyps (just thought I'd throw this one in)

Now, I did mention this at the RE's office and they didn't seem to be too concerned which made me not be insistent that they do something, but now, I'm starting to think that was a mistake. 

Ok, so I am notoriously impatient (hence the title of this blog) but I know when something is wrong. This is wrong... although it's probably not a serious problem, I really don't need this raising my anxiety level right now.

Well, I have eaten some chocolate and will down a couple of advil and see if it will cure me.
