Hi my name's Cassie and I'm 24 years old. Just want to ask a few things, firstly what were your symptoms you first noticed. I'm not diagnosed with ovarian cancer but I have some concerning symptoms that match. I have frequent urge to urinate so many times a day, I have pelvic pain and abdomen pain, I get bloated, extreme back pain, feeling full when eating a little, weight loss and extreme fatigue. I was also wondering if you can still get ovarian cancer while on the contraceptive pill, I've been on it for 10 years now.
