Well, the darn thing doesn't fit, but that's not entirely surprising, considering that I don't seem to stretch like most people seem to.
What is surprising is that when I attempted to fit it in there, I started getting very bad stomach and pelvic pain. Sort of similar to the discomfort I have during internal ultrasounds, but worse. Thing is, I don't think the thing got IN there, or if it did, not deep enough to be pushing on internal structures. (But I really don't think it got in at all. I never felt the head "pop" in. Just a lot of resistance. I used lube, which seemed to help slightly but not really much.)
I put a couple of fingers in there to see if I could accommodate that much, and I could (barely), but I feel different inside. Granted, I haven't been in there in quite a long time (my activities are generally external), and I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to verbalize HOW. Whatever structures there are that I'm feeling feel lumpier and thicker, like there's less room to maneuver in there, and I feel pressure in my rectum when I put a finger in there, or put pressure on the entrance. Actually, I still feel it now. Well, that's annoying. I'm not constipated.
(Also, I'm kind of sore from feeling around in there trying to put what I'm feeling into words. Sheesh.)
I had a clear pap nine months ago and an ultrasound that showed a 5 cm ovarian cyst that hasn't changed in a year or two. It never caused symptoms before. He didn't, however, do a through pelvic exam. Is this something I should see a doctor about? It doesn't bother me terribly in the sense that I can't live with it, but a friend of mine recently died from ovarian cancer at 36, and I'm terrified of missing a symptom that could point to something serious.
