This Woman Thought She Was Just Having Painful Menstrual Cramps But Her Doctors Revealed That Her Condition Is Deadly!




Although the Philippine government is doing its best to improve the health care system in the country, it is still undeniable that many citizens do not have the basic knowledge that they should have regarding their reproductive health. As a result, they are unaware that what they thought is just normal is actually deadly.

Such is the case of a Filipina Facebook user who went to social media to share her experience and raise awareness among women about the importance of proper reproductive health care.

Netizen Caren Ramos Cortez thought that her severe menstrual cramps are just plain symptoms of her monthly period. At first, she did not pay attention to it as she thought they are just normal. Only only she had an appointment with her medical doctor late last year that found out that her painful menstrual cramps are actually symptoms of her ovarian cyst.

Her ovarian cyst is associated with infertility and its cause is still unknown. They are considered as benign tumors which really need proper medical attention.

Take time to read and It will be all worth it.

"To All The Ladies Out There, I just want to share something and be aware"

"MY OVARIAN CYSTS EXPERIENCE"

 So it's started Last week of November 2016 and nung mga panahon na yon was my "Red Alert" so basically dapat December last week magkaron ako dahil regular naman ako and I've never been delayed until mangyare na madelayed ako ng December hanggang 3rd week of January pero masakit na ang puson at tagiliran ko which is sa kaliwa nanggagaling yung pain hindi ko na malaman kase madalas na siyang sumakit even pag nasa work ako hindi ako makagalaw ng maayos dahil sa nararamdaman ko.

 But January 23, 2017 nagkaron ako pero hindi siya katulad nung mga past ments ko kase di naman red agad yung lumabas brown e. Lage akong may dysmenorhea pagmeron ako halos mamatay ako na ewan na parang may lalabas na baby sa ano ko. But this time triple yung sakit and this past few months may napansin ako sa tiyan ko para akong preggy ng 2months kase biglang laki ng puson ko. 

 January 24, 2017 
 Nagstart na yung ments ko na halos hindi na ko makatulog paggabi kase masakit na puson ko kasabay ng tigiliran ko. Since yung unang lumabas saakin is brown ngayon pa lang lalabas yung red na ments ko so pag first laging malakas expected ko na yun kase every month naman nangyayare saakin yon so hindi na bago. 

January 25 to 29, 2017
 May ments padin ako at dito na ko nagtaka kase kung gaano kalakas ang ments ko ng first day ganun padin siya kalakas nawoworry na ko kase feeling ko hindi na siya normal kase sa loob ng isang araw 2-3 pads(napkin) ang nagagamit ko at lahat yon punong puno so pag gabi nag na-night pads na ko kase sobrang lakas.

 January 30, 2017 
 Mama Decided na ipacheck up na ko. So kinakabahan ako kase ayokong malaman na iba na pala yung nararamdaman ko. Pinabalik kame sa result tomorrow.

 January 31, 2017
 Result Day, babasahin na ni doktora yung findings saakin so nagwiwish padin ako na sana okay lang sana walang problema saakin na dysmenorhea lang at may ipapainom lang na gamot para mawala pero hindi yun yung inexpect ko.

 Nakita sa ultrasound at pagkapa saakin na may Ovarian Cysts ako Left and Right Ovary. Left has 9.2 cm na parang kasing laki na ng kamao ng lalaki and Right has 5.4 cm na kasing laki ng kamao ng mga 6-7 years old kid. 

 They called it Endometrioma Bilateral or Chocolate Cysts Endometriosis is a condition in which cells that normally grow inside as a lining of the uterus (womb), instead grow outside of the uterus in other locations. Sabe ng doctor nasa lahi daw namin yon, which is si Mama may mayoma din before at tinanggal na pero sabe ng doctor na out of 100% ladies nagkakaroon din ng mga 10-20% ang nagkakaroon nun at lumalabas siya out of nowhere. Sabe din ng doctor asap na daw ako kailangan operahan before lumalala at pumutok yon.

 February 1, 2017
  Pumasok pa ko sa work nagbaka sakaling kayanin ko pa, pero hindi na talaga kaya ika ika nadin ako maglakad at hawak hawak o sapo sapo kona yung puson at tagiliran ko after work its time for me to rest pero nung gabing yon hindi na ko nakatulog , triple yung sakit kase pinapaiyak na niya ko so matinde na talaga. Iniiyakan kona si Mama sa nararamdaman ko at natataranta na siya

 February 2, 2017
  Wala akong tulog paidlip idlip lang kaya nagdecide na si Mama na iadmit  na ko at itakbo na sa hospital. Hanggang nasa MJ na ko inoobserbahan na ko ng mga doctor nun hanggang sa kinompronta at kinausap na ko ng doctor.

That was the saddest part of my life habang nagppaliwanag saakin. Feeling ko gumuguho yung mundo ko. I am just only 20 years old na gustong bumuo ng pamilya someday but the doctor said na kailangan na nilang tanggalin yung ovary ko parehas kase delikado na malaki na kase sila. 

 Hindi ko alam anong iisipin ko at gagawin ko, hindi na ko magkakababy iniyakan ko sila na baka pwede pa isalba yung isa na baka kaya pang gawan ng paraan. Nangako naman sila na gagawin nila lahat para maisalba yung isa which is yung right yon kase di na kayang isave yung left. 

 Delikado na din kase yung isang cysts nakadikit na sa bituka ko. I was really depressed. Tomorrow na yung operation. I hope na maging maayos lahat. Dasal lang ang kinapitan ko sa mga oras na yon.

 February 3, 2017
 7:30 am nung pinasok ako sa OR  kinakabahan ako sa totoo lang. Yung pakiramdam na Major Operation yon at di basta bastang operasyon lang. Nagdasal na lang ako at ibinigay ang sarili sa panginoon na wag niya akong pababayaan. 2:30 pm nung matapos ang operation ko at nagising na lang ako na nasa kwarto na. Tinanong ko agad si mama kung anong nangyare umiyak lang si mama saakin sabay sabing nak nagawan nila ng paraan yung right nagtira sila kahit papano para magkababy ka. And I am beyond blessed kase hindi ako iniwanan ni Mama siya nagasikaso saakin all throughout nung nasa Hosptal ako. worth it yung dasal ko at yung mga dasal ng mga taong malapit saakin. 

 Feb 4 to 8, 2017
Nagpahinga at nakapagdischarged na sa Hospital and recovering naaaa 

Although ang Ovarian Cysts may not cause signs or symptoms. Larger cysts are more likely to cause signs and symptoms such as feeling ko bloated ako at parang nasusuka yung konti lang kainin ko pero parang busog na busog na ko, nahihilo din ako madalas, Pain in the abdomen, pelvis, sometimes radiating to the low back. My doctor said ang blessed ko kase naagapan agad namin kung hindi baka pumutok at mainfection ako sa bituka at pwede kong ikamatay. Most ovarian cysts are never noticed and resolve without women ever realizing that they are there. When a cyst causes symptoms, pain in the abdomen or pelvis is the most common one. You will never notice kase feeling niyo normal lang since every ladies are suffering of dysmenorrhea caused of menstruation matigas kase ang ulo ko at napansin ko na lang siya nung malala na. Actually traydor ang Ovarian Cysts kase hindi mo talaga mapapansin e. Sabe din ng doctor dapat talaga ang mga Girls with or without partner should always go on check ups para hindi humantong sa matitindeng sakit.
