Not that I have that problem any more - had the beastly things removed. I just have the aftershocks to deal with. Not too bad! But in the US it is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month, and here's why you need to be aware:
Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynaecological cancer in the UK and affects over 6,800 women a year.
Cervical screening tests [smear tests] - DO NOT detect ovarian cancer, only cervical cancer.
Awareness of ovarian cancer is very low. Only 16% of women surveyed in 2007 were aware of ovarian cancer. Two-thirds were not able to cite any symptoms of ovarian cancer or said they did not know or were not able to mention any risks associated with ovarian cancer.
See below for the signs of ovarian cancer - or here for more detailed information
Bear in mind that it is the frequency, persistency, severity and new onset of these symptoms that may help to differentiate between those who are experiencing symptoms related to ovarian cancer and those who are not. Listen to your body, and ASK your GP if you are at all concerned.
And spread the word girls. If ovarian cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, the outcome is good!
