Symptoms: Heaviness on right abdomen

 

 

Doctor: Hello,This is definitely not pregnancy as firstly you had your menses after your last intercourse , secondly you were on birth control, thirdly pregnancy test was negative. So there is no pregnancy intrauterine or ectopic .Your concern about thick vaginal discharge in the initial days of the cycle can be attributed to estrogen effect which can increase the cervical discharge after the pill withdrawal and unless it was not associated with any foul smell or itching, it can be safely termed as physiological discharge.However , the heaviness in the right iliac fossa region needs to be investigated with an ultrasound pelvis to rule out any ovarian cyst formation or any evidence of polycystic ovaries in your case as krimson 35 is usually advised to PCOS patients to regularize their irregular menses and reduce hyperandrogenic features.It is suggested that you may visit your physician for a pelvic ultrasound and a per vaginal bimanual examination to ascertain the cause of right sided heaviness.I hope i have answered your query in detail,wishing you good health,regards
