Burst Ovary Treatment

The causes of ovarian cysts need to be properly understood. A failed or disordered ovulation is basically the main reason of the formation of an ovarian cyst. A functional cyst occurs when follicle is unable to release an egg and its growth continues which eventually lead to the formation of a cyst. In other cases a cyst might be formed at the time the follicle does release an egg but the place where it is released is closed. When this happens the corpus luteum does not form and the cyst keeps on growing. Recent research shows that over production of xenoestorgens is one of main causes of the formation of ovarian cysts.

In order to properly understand the why ovarian cysts occur, one has to first understand properly the functioning of the endocrine glands. The brain’s lower portion is called the hypothalamus, and pituitary gland lies underneath it. When a woman’s progesterone levels and estrogen go down, this is when hypothalamus begins to send gonadotropin-releasing pulses (GnRH) to the gland. It in its turn sends follicle-stimulating hormones or FSH and it targets the ovary. And because of this, the ovum, which is within the follicles begin to mature. It is the follicles that actually aid in the release of estrogen. It takes about 10 days for the body’s estrogen levels to go up by quite a bit. This is when the hypothalamus enhances the pituitary gland and the GnRH’s production, and thus producing LH or the Luteinizing Hormone. It’s the LH which further aids the process of ovulation and leads to the corpus luteum from the follicle. Corpus luteum again secretes progesterone which is the dominating hormone in the 2nd half in the reproduction cycle. And if there is no pregnancy, the corpus luteum degenerates and both the estrogen and the progesterone level falls.

Ovaries actually grow as small cysts every month. In some abnormal cases, the follicle continues to grow and results in cyst. Hence it can be easily understood that the cysts actually kicked off as normal in the start of the period then what exactly led to the follicular dysfunction and did not allow the egg to be released. Experts are of the opinion that it is because of the female embryo getting exposed to environmental pollutants and xenobiotics, which fakes the estrogen’s chemical action on the tissue. During the development of the female embryo, six hundred to eight hundred follicles are made, and every one of them remains within the ovum that is not mature.

The xenobiotics though apparently don’t affect the mother, however the baby is much more vulnerable and the ovarian follicles get dysfunctional. They are unable to reach their maturity and the progesterone is not secreted in enough numbers. The damage can never be ascertained till the time the child reaches the age of puberty. The holistic system is the best method of treatment to fight the ovarian cyst causes.

In fact it is difficult to pinpoint any one cause for the cyst. Like any other health condition ovarian cysts can be formed from various causes and their interaction. There are some other factors which are not always the causes of ovarian cyst, but can aggravate a cyst that is already there. A combination of external and health conditions can ruin a person’s health and lead to the formation of cysts. The causes of cysts in the ovary are sort of multidimensional; hence the treatment too should be multi dimensional if you want a complete cure. This is why conventional treatments fail so miserably as they are not multidimensional in their approach. They fail to treat the root cause and though temporary relief can be brought yet it is brought at the price of the liver or kidney damage.

Conventional medication only treats the effected part without bothering about the over all health. But the problem is, ovarian cysts may not be caused by just any one single reason but various physical, mental and environmental reasons play a part in their formation. In some cases a person might be prone to diseases because of some genetic combination though that does not mean that we might be open to the threat of genes. In fact by adopting a holistic remedy option, we can alter our genetic structure by some extent. Diseases can be prevented from coming back and the lost health and energy can be regained. Holistic approach emphasizes a healthy diet and lifestyle that helps in expelling the build-up of toxic and other elements that lead to the weakening of the immune system. Various factors such as hormonal imbalance, during the monthly cycle, sleeplessness, stress, antibiotics and steroids too may lead to the formation of the cysts. The holistic approach doesn’t include any steroids or antibiotics in its methods thus making it safe and devoid of any side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is the treatment for a burst ovarian cyst?
    I had an 11cm ovarian cyst drained from my left ovary in November 07 which came back and had to be removed in February 08. Since then I had been in constant pain, especially when sitting or during in intercourse. A few nights ago I couldn’t sleep as I was in so much pain in my pelvic area, lower back and it seemed to go inot my hips.

    I’ve just had an internal ultrasound scan which showed that my left ovary is covered with cysts again, one of which is just over 3cm and another has burst and filled my pelvis with fluid. The sonographer lady said it was an awful ot of fluid in there and that it was probably what was causing so much pain aswell as the cysts being painful.

    I asked about treatment and all she said was that the result of the scan will go to my GP and gynaecologist and it is up to me to go to them to find out what the treatment will be. I said I hve an appointment with my Gynyaecologist in 3 weeks and she said I need to be seen sooner than that as the fluid should not
    …be there.

    What is the treatment and how soon will I need to be seen? Is it serious? I’m supposed to be going away on holiday tomorrow.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to cancel your vacation and get over to the doctor ASAP first thing. There is no way in H*LL I’d wait three weeks to see my doctor for a burst ovarian cyst. If your doctor won’t see you then you need to go to the hospital or urgent care ASAP.

      Good luck, sweetie!

  2. QUESTION:
    Clomid.13 large follicles!! Ovary feels ready to burst! Unusual?
    I have been trying to research the typical number of mature follicles people get when being treated with a standard dose of Clomid. My RE put me on 50mg days 3-7 and on day 11 I went in for an ultrasound and the tech seemed really surprised, saying I have 9-10 large follicles on one ovary and 4 on the other. She conulted the doctor and they have cancelled treatment because the risk of multiples is too high. The doctor ordered my husband and I use a barrier method for the next week. They mentioned how I didn’t want to end up like the octomom! How unusual is this? My left ovary is SO pressurized! It hurts to walk or urinate! The doctor said it was to be expected and that this is not your “typical” reaction to 50 mg of Clomid but I didn’t think to ask how unusual. What is your knowledge on this or experiance? Thanks guys…

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, just be thankful that your doctor is monitoring you so closely!!! I got overstimulated on 50mg’s of clomd (2nd round) and my doctor was not monitoring me and now I am pregnant with triplets. I have no idea how many follies, but I had all the symptoms of over stimulation when I ovulated… I really hate to tell you this, but be prepared for when you do actually ovulate, you are going to be in some pretty bad pain. Take off work, cancel plans or whatever you have to do, I was lucky to just be able to sit on the couch curled up in a ball and pop a loritab every 6 hours.

      I do not know the statistics for over stimulation on only 50mg of clomid, I know its fairly rare though, usually when people get up to 100mg or 150mg with the hcg trigger is when they get over stimulated. My old doc (the one that gave me the clomid and didnt monitor me) and my new doc (the one I went to when I thought there was something wrong with the way my old doc was monitoring me) said they have never seen a person get pregnant with triplets off 50mg of clomid in their career though. My new doc said that he does not like to use clomid much because it is such a hard medication and runs such a high risk of over stimulation and said he usually uses femara instead, so maybe there is another med that won’t be quite so harsh.

      Good luck and just be thankful he caught it!!!

  3. QUESTION:
    ovarian cyst on my left ovary?
    I have been having pain in my left side for about a week, went to the doctor for an ultrasound today… my late period and the pain has been explained I have a 4cm cyst on my ovary. Im in pain a lot my back hurts, its hard to pee or you know, it hurts. Im just wondering how my doctor is going to treat it, we havent talked yet…but im scared of it bursting, last time i had one burst i was down on the ground….like 5 years ago, im only 21. my ovaries have been clear since i got pregnant 22 months ago…..then all of a sudden….here comes a cyst./.. ive never had a cyst this big im scared to know what my treatment options would be….im not on birthcontrol now, due to the fact that my best option was an iud and my body rejected it. anyone with similar experence id appreciate some advice, like what is going to help this pain….thanks
    I havent gotten a period in since July 28th…so I dont even know when im gonna get that….i shouldve gotten it already…..im just in pain….i know they are excruciating when they break..last time when they broke i was in the shower and i just dropped to the floor….
    i just which i know how to force it to rupture, sad i know. but i have terrible gas and its hurting to go to thebathroom…

    • ANSWER:
      I am 22 years old and have had ovarian cysts since I was 15. The biggest I had was 6cm. My dr never did anything to treat my cysts. He put me on pain killers (hydocodine) and birth control and I had to wait for them to rupture and pass the tissue out of my system on my own. Usually drs will just wait for them to rupture unless they are causing serious medical problems, then they might do a surgery to remove the cysts from your ovaries.

  4. QUESTION:
    Should i be worried?
    I was having bad pelvic pains, took some pregnancy tests and found out i was pregnant. I went to the ER and they said i had cycts bursting on my ovaries. I have had many treatments for HPV which left me with not much of my cervix and what is left is very scarred. In the notes from the ER they said my cervix was slightly opened and when i told my Dr about this she didnt say anything about it, and she hasnt even examined me yet…I am about 9 1/2 weeks pregnant and from what i have read and heard from people, having a opened cervix can cause miscarriage, so should i call and question my dr or be worried about this? The Dr Im seeing is at my tribal clinic, since i do not have insurance it was the only place i could go without paying upfront. I wont be able to get into the prenatel clinic for pobably another month or whenever the state health plan gets accepted. Do i need to call and explain more of my medical history to this Dr im seeing?

    • ANSWER:
      I would definitely contact the doctor and talk with her. Even if you don’t have a problem, it will help put your mind at ease.

      Good luck with your pregnancy and congratulations!

  5. QUESTION:
    Pouch of Douglas and pelvic free fluid??? Please help!!!?
    I have been in agony since a laparoscopy in Feb and an internal ultrasound showed that I have a 3cm cyst on my left ovary (i had an 11cm cyst removed in Feb and treatment for endo). Also the scan showed that a cyst had burst leaving pelvic free fluid to a depth of 3cm and free fluid in the pouch of douglas. I don’t see my gynecologist until Tuesday but I have really bad pelvic pain and it’s driving me mad. How is the fluid removed from the pouch of douglas? Surely it can’t just be left there can it if it’s causing so much pain. Please help I am so stressed with it and the stress just makes the pain worse!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Go see an Arvigo practitioner, they can help you with the cysts and endo and help to get the body to deal with the fluid. Generally, the docs will just let the body do it’s thing and reabsorb the fluid which will just take time. Otherwise, maybe take a warm bath to help you relax and destress a little.

  6. QUESTION:
    please help, ovarian cyst rupture, hormones, seizure?
    first let me say i have been to the ER, and my own obgyn. i have an apt with my gp next week.

    please take the time to read my story and give me any advice or opinion you can.
    i greatly appreciate it.

    this weekend i was running errands and started to cramp. my period just ended a few days prior to this so i was sure this was not af cramps.
    in a matter of minutes the pain grew so severe i had to sit in the passenger’s side of my car. i ended up passing out from the pain and while i was out i had a small seizure or convulsions. i was failing my arms and legs, foaming at the mouth and tears were pouring down my face. my b/f who was with me, rushed me to the ER.

    origianlly the pain was on my right side but after a couple hours started to spread to my whole lower abdomen.

    i was given morphine for the pain but it didnt help at all so they gave me even more.

    roughly 3 hours from the begining of this pain it started to spread all the way up to my ribs. like being shot in the stomach or a severe charlie horse in my whole abdomen.

    i got 2 sonograms, internal and belly, and a pelvic exam. at the ER they dismissed me after 8-9 hours as ovulation pain. this was not ovulation pain. something def burst. all the ER told me was that i had a lot of follicules on my ovaries.

    the next day i was very very sore in my lower abdomen. and my ab was also distended.

    i went to my obgyn who had the reports from the ER and said i had a cyst on my rt ovary.
    she also said my urine test showed bactiria in it. so she gave me another pelvic exam and took some samples to test for PID. i havent gotten the results from there yet.

    today i have a strange smelling discharge that is kinda yellowish. i’m sure i have some kind of infection, not sure if it was due to a cyst rupturing or what tho.

    has anyone had anything like this? im so scared of it happening again.

    my obgyn said it could have been a ruptured cyst or that the follicules on my ovaries are popping. why would i have so many follicules if i havent ovulated yet? (i chart monthly with bbt)

    sorry for rambling im just very nervous and at a loss of what to do next.

    i’m 28 y/o, and in pretty good health, not overweight, eat good etc. i have reg periods.

    am i getting cysts because of hormones?

    also, my obgyn recommended birth control but right now im refusing. ive been on it before and had bad exp. i’d much rather use natural treatment. i dont like the idea of possibly having too much or too little of a hormone and treating that with some mix of hormones to try to get it in line.

    please, anyone?
    thanks so much for your reply. i do have another cyst but it is pretty small. only 1.1 cm or something like that.

    i’ve been reading about herbs for female reproductive protecting/balancing. also, last time i had a cyst i used a mixture of raw beets and molasses as a tonic and drank it once every morning. that seemed to help, i only wish i had kept it up to see if it really truly worked.

    also, ive had headaches since this happened. like migraine behind my eyes and forehead.

    as far as the seizure goes i have passed a few times before so that isnt too surprising, i mostly mentioned it to so the severity of the pain i was in.

    thanks again!

    • ANSWER:
      You might be having two unrelated conditions. Ovarian cysts and Pelvic Inflammatory disease(PID) The PID is what should concern you. you will have to get that treated after the lab results confirm what microorganism is causing it, with antibiotics to prevent scarring and infertility later on. Ovarian cysts are quite common and usualy benign, unless they grow very large and rupture as in your case.Ovarian cysts are caused by hyperstimulation of the ovaries by gonadotrophic hormones. As recommended by your OB/GYN you might need to go on a short course of oral contraceptives to reduce the release of gonadotrophin hormones from you pituitary, which are hyperstimulating your ovaries and causing the cyst formation. The female hypothalomo-pituitary-ovarian axis is quite complex and can be easily distrupted by a number of factors. Some natural treatments might work in your case or in time after you have children things might settle down to normal.

  7. QUESTION:
    please help, ive got a rubbish doctor and don’t know what to do?
    I am trying for a baby with my partner. Last week i was diagnosed with poly cystic ovary syndrome after a scan. I went to the doctor today and i suggested that he put me on metformin because i have heard great reviews about it regularising womens periods and helping them to concieve. He said its a load of old rubbish (despite the research i have seen). My doctor just doesnt seem to care. I asked him what treatment he was going to give me and he said “well what do you want us to do, burst the cyst?” in a sarcastic sort of way. He said he was going to wait until the scan pictures come back and then refer me to a gynocologist. I want help to concieve a baby and get my periods back on track. I was the most regular person with my periods until dec.3rd. I had a period and then didnt have another one until feb 13th which made me want to get tested for poly cystic ovary syndrome. I want help from the doctors.

    Do you think i should change doctors?
    Also, when i had the scan the nurse told me that cysts on the ovaries are normal, but anything over 9mm is classed as a polycistic ovary. Mine where 14mm.

    What would a gynogologist be able to do?

    • ANSWER:
      An OB/GYN will know a lot more about this condition and will be able to help you. I know many people with PCOS have tried different medicines/treatments and had success so there is hope but you have to go to the right doctor. Get the referral and go to someone who knows what they are talking about. Also, its best if you ask questions but don’t just tell the doctor what medicine you want to be on—let them check you out and give you a diagnosis. You could say “what about metformin?” or something but I wouldn’t demand a prescription right off. Good luck conceiving.

  8. QUESTION:
    Does a lump in the breast always mean cancer? Can you please help me!?
    Im 15, it’s not occouring with me. Yesterday when i came home from school, my mom told me she had to go to the doctors. When i asked why, she burst into tears telling me she had a lump in her breast and it was huge and hurt. She told me she had it for years and it only hurt when she was on her period. My mom is 46 next month.

    Last year, she was diagnosed with a ovarie cyst. It’s 1 inch big. Then she had a coil treatment so it didn’t hurt her anymore. She then went up for a checkup and they found out there was another ovarie cyst on the other side.

    My mom currently weighs 8 st 13. She’s anorexic also. She’s been anorexic 3 times him her life. She eats, but about 800 calories a day. That’s including coffee drinks, so she eats about 400 calories a day. I keep asking her to put on weight, but she can’t. She’s got mental health problems in that sort of way.

    Today: I walked into the house and she started to cry. She can feel the cysts on her ovaries, the breast lump is painful. She told me she didn’t want to ever leave me and she didn’t want me to grow up without her. Im 15. My dad isn’t much of my dad. Neither is my stepdad. He’s more of a dad to me, but he’s devoted to his wife which is currently on a suicide note. Life isn’t looking good for me. But i need my mom. I love her so much. Apart from my brother, she’s all i’ve got.

    The doctors said it could also be cysts on her breast. She has to wait 2 weeks for a scan and all day we’ve both been crying. She feels that her life is put on hold. To have a scan sooner, it’s £800.

    Could it be cancer? Do you think she’ll recover? What can i do for her? Apart from already helping out. I’ve been with her all day. I need to help. I need my mom. I don’t want her to die for a long long time yet. I need her so much at this time.

    • ANSWER:
      If this lump looks suspicious on the scan (and it might be fine) they will need to ado a biopsy.

      80% of lumps they biopsy are NOT cancer.

      If it is painful and changes with her period then it is showing classic signs of a cyst.

      It might be cancer, but it is probably not.

      Even if it is cancer, breast cancer is VERY treatable.

      Many of us survive for many years after diagnosis – my aunt survived 49 years, I have a friend who had breast cancer 20 years ago and a sister who had it 16 years ago and neither of them have any sign of disease now.

      I have been over 6 years without any sign after being diagnosed when my daughter was 15.

  9. QUESTION:
    Many infertile women have killed embryos with (IVF) should pro life birth mothers let them adopt their babies?
    Many infertile couples I know have gone through failed IVF cycles before settling for adoption. IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) Is where the infertile woman gets pumped full of hormones and eggs start bursting out of her ovaries. Usually 20+ are collected per cycle. Then it’s off to a petri dish where they all get fertilized. From a pro life perspective thats when life begins Sperm+Egg=Baby The Catholic Church forbids IVF to them it’s an evil act.

    Only about 5 embryos are implanted into the infertile womans womb the rest are just discarded or frozen and forgotten. So from a pro life perspective IVF causes alot babies to be killed attempting to get just one born. If it doesn’t result in a birthed baby most infertile women will try again multiple times. An infertile woman who has gone through failed IVF cycles probably has killed over 50-100+ of her embryos. Your local IVF clinic has probably killed off more embryos than the local abortion clinic.

    Why should a pro life birth mother with strong moral and religous convictions give birth to that one unwanted embryo growing in her womb to and give it away to the infertile woman who thought nothing of killing 50-100+ of her own embryos in failed IVF cycles. Adoption agencies don’t educate birth mothers about this. Many of their infertile clients are failed IVF cyclers. I think women who have gone through IVF treatments have no business going to pro life adoption agencies to adopt babies from pro life anti abortion birth mothers.

    Most birth mothers are strictly against abortion and find it to be amoral and repulsive. Do you think it’s unethical that birth mothers aren’t educated about IVF procedures? Do birth mothers have the right to know if the woman who wants to adopt her baby has gone through IVF cycles?
    Educate yourself I’m sorry if the TRUTH hurts.

    http://www.religioustolerance.org/abo_inco.htm

    Most adoption agencies are Christian oriented. Catholic Charities, Bethany Christian, Lutheran Social Services etc. The minute a pregnant woman walks thru one of these agencies doors they will tell her that life begins at conception and practically beg her not to abort. They will drill the fact into her head that killing an embryo is the same as killing a baby. Yet according to their Christian pro life teachings of life beginning at conception many of their infertile clients have killed off 50-100+ embryos (babies) during their multiple failed IVF procedures.

    Isn’t it unethical that birth mothers aren’t told this?

    Do you think it’s fair for a pro life women who believes that life begins at conception and who refused to terminate the unwanted embryo growing in her womb but instead chose to go through pregnancy difficulties and the agony of childbirth just to give her baby away to an infertile women who killed off 50-100+ of her own embryos with failed IVF cycles?
    I have never encountered any group of people that are as deep in cognitive dissonance as infertile women desperate for a baby.

    Cognitive dissonance–an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding contradictory ideas simultaneously. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance. They do this by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and actions. Dissonance is also reduced by justifying, blaming, and denying.

    If most of you weren’t infertile and could have your own kids you would be agreeing with me, and you wouldn’t dream of setting foot in one of those sociopathic adoption agencies that hustle young pregnant women into giving their babies away.
    To all the idiot posters who are ASSuming I have given up a baby for adoption you are waaaayyy off. I would choose abortion rather than be a broodmare for some ungrateful infertile women. I am an activist fighting against the corrupt adoption agencies who hustle vunerable teen girls. They frequently use their pro life –life begins at conception– arguement to guilt trip young women into giving birth to their unwanted embryos when probably most of their infertile clients have according to their own pro life anti abortion perspective have killed off dozens of their own embryos with their failed IVF cycles.

    According to the anti abortion pro life christian adoption agencies own arguements of “life begins at conception” IVF does murder alot of babies trying to get one born. They are such slimeballs for using religious manipulation to get pregnant women not to abort but put their baby up for adoption so they can make ,000 selling it to an infertile women who killed off her embryos.
    According to the Christian “life begins at conception” perspective Sperm+Egg=Baby. IVF is the same as abortion because it kills babies. Only IVF is worse because it kills over 20+ babies per cycle. These pro lifers even argue against women being able to get the morning after pill. Yet they accept failed IVF cycler infertile women as their clients in their pro life religious adoption agencies and let them adopt babies from pro life birth mothers. They are hypocrites who only care about money. Pregnant women who feel guilty about getting an abortion shouldn’t listen to those Jesus freaks because most of their infertile clients (from their pro life perspective) are abortion queens who killed dozens of babies.

    • ANSWER:
      I appreciate your post. Perhaps the pro-lifers will see their inherent hypocrisy. It’s OK to protest against abortion, but why aren’t they also protesting against those who use IVF? Why aren’t they protesting women who have someone else’s eggs installed for an illegal adoption?

    16 years old with PCOS and Acne..HELP!?
    I am 16 and have recently been diagnosed with PCOS (Poly-cystic ovaries syndrome) and hence i suffer from acne. My acne was mild-severe and I have used every topical lotion and they didnt work.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Please help, I have a bleeding cyst on my ovary.?
    I went to the hospital the other night and had a cat scan and a ultrasound done. The results were I have a cyst on my ovary that is bleeding. I have had a cyst on my right ovary before but nothing like this. The pain is so bad. I wanted to know what can the doctor do about a ovarian cyst that is bleeding. Im scared that it might rupture. Has anyone ever had a bleeding cyst. If so what happend. Please help I can use any answwer right now. Im scared. I have had nothing like this before.

    • ANSWER:
      well my mom has cyst on both of her ovaries, so her cycle is 3 times as bad, she was given the option to either let it shrink away or get surgery to get it out..if i were you i would take the surgery, the only my mom hasnt done that is becuz our insurance wont cover it, and she’s worried to leave the house.

      I can feel her pain when she screams, so i would rather deal with the drowsiness from a surgery, than the everlasting pain of a cyst, pounding against my ovaries, as if im givin birth each time

  2. QUESTION:
    I have a bleeding cyst on my oavry. I need to know what can be done about it?
    I went to the hospital the other night and the doctor told me i have a cyst on my right ovary that is bleeding and its cause really bad pain through my lower abdomen. I need to know if anyone has had this and what will happen to me.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to see another doctor. Did they check for an eptopic pregnancy (if possible), this can cause severe pain and can kill you.

      I lived 13 years with cysts and scar tissue on my ovaries but had no idea that was what was causing severe pain during menstruation. I had exam after exam, an even got an ultrasound but no one could tell me exactly what the problem was. Finally 5 years ago I found a doctor who did a laporoscopy and discovered the source of my pain. Because I was not properly diagnosed for so many years I have had two laporscopies with laser removal of scar tissue and I am facing a hysterectomy. If the condition had been treated when it began I would not have gone through what I have and I would not be dealing with having to get a hysterectomy.
      Unless you had a laporoscopy there is no way for a doctor to know what is going on in there. A laporoscopy is a surgery where a camera is inserted though a small incision, in my case the incisions were made over each ovary, then the doc went in with a laser and removed the cysts and scar tissue.

      Please don’t do what I did and wait until the pain becomes so bad that you can’t even stay consious, seek another opinion. You may have to go to several doctors until you find one that will listen, I can’t even count how many I saw. Many told me that I was to young to have problems like I did, others told me that I was a wimp (really) and I couldn’t deal with cramps. I would like to see them all again and show them what they refused to look at and “thank” them for making my chances of being a mom slim to none. Sorry I am a little bitter, please see another doctor.

  3. QUESTION:
    STILL VERY CONFUSED AND NEED ANSWERS – HCG Levels – Cyst on ovary – Bleeding while pregnant?
    I have been posting here because I am CONFUSED and the doctors dont know anything YET!
    This is my 3rd pregnancy. I had a molar, and I have a 20 month old son, and now Im pregnant again.
    My HPTs were negative until the day after I missed my period (which makes me think I ovulated later possibly than I thought).
    Positive on 1/12
    HCG on 1/14 was 140
    Then I had some pink and then red spotting and it went away.
    HCG on 1/16 went down to 109. The told me I would continue to miscarry although my cervix was still closed and everything felt normal. I accepted it was over and planned to try again. They wanted to repeat bloodwork until I returned to zero.
    HCG 1/21 – Up to 441 !! – Completely shocked, they tell me its most likely ectopic and they schedule me for U/S this afternoon (1/22)
    Today the US revealed nothing in my tubes (ruled out!) but also nothing in my uterus (possibly too early to tell?) and it showed a large cyst on my left ovary. I am confused and my questions are:
    #1 – Could the ovary have caused the bleeding?
    #2 – Do you think I am indeed still pregnant if my levels went up that much after going down EVEN if their is nothing in my unterus? Could it just be too early to tell?
    I will not know anything for awhile and Im just concerned. I will get bloodwork again on Monday and go from there. Any advice or similar situations? I am desperate here!

    • ANSWER:
      My understanding is that hcg doubles in 85% of women every 2-3 days but that until it reaches 1000 sonogram will not show anything in uterus or tubes, so ectopic can’t be checked until then. I hope they are wrong and you’re able to find peace in an outcome soon.

  4. QUESTION:
    Can a ruptured cyst on the ovary cause bleeding?
    Every so often I develop a cyst on my ovary which grows and then pops causing a lot of pain. It is harmless but was wondering if it could cause bleeding when it ruptures? It doesn’t normally for me but it happened the other night and that night I started bleeding for 4 days before period was due. Is it just s coincidence?

    • ANSWER:
      I lost an ovary because of an ovarian cyst and then developed two medium-sized ovarian cysts about 11 months later.

      I was headed for surgery again but I decided to look for an alternative. I was introduced to the Ovarian Cyst Miracle e-book and decided to give it a try.

      After several days of following the program, I no longer needed painkillers. After 10 weeks an ultrasound confirmed that my ovarian cysts were gone.

      The e-book can be found at the link below.

  5. QUESTION:
    ovary cyst and bleeding?
    To begin, I’m 25, in general good health, not sexually active.

    Sorry to be graphic, BUT, whenever I have a Bowel Movement…I experience bright bleeding from my va jay jay (positive it’s from there). I wipe and then it’s usually done, so it is NOT a steady flow or anything like that…just a small amount that quickly turns to brown.

    This has been going on usually 2 times a day for the past 3 weeks – I have appt wih my obgyn next week.

    I got my period last week (thought that would solve the problem, but it hasn’t) BUT now, the past few days, what I think are my ovaries, are starting to ache. I have had a cyst in the past and the ache is similar to that.

    Has anyone experienced anything like what I have described? The bleeding worries me because that’s never happened to me before.

    • ANSWER:
      see a gynecologist

  6. QUESTION:
    Can a cyst on your ovary cause bleeding?
    Okay, my last period was on April 20, I have a 24 day cycle. I had unprotected sex on Apirl 28, then on May 5 and 6 I had some very very light staining 2 times. I went to the doctor yesterday to see why I was having pain in my lower left side, he did a peetest and it was negative, and he said I have a cyst on my left ovary. Could I still be pregnant, and it is still too early to tell with a pee test? My period is due Monday????

    • ANSWER:
      I jsut wish I could call every woman in the world and tell her that cysts are necessary for pregnancy! Every time some women hear teh word cyst they think its a problem.

      A corpus luteum cyst forms after ovulation. Its job is to produce progesterone to sustain a possible pregnancy. If you become pregnant, the embryo sends an hCG message back to the corpus lutem to tell it to keep making progesterone to sustain the pregnancy. The corpus luteum continues until around the 12th week of pregnancy. I wouldn’t worry about the cyst unless you doctor mentioned it was rather large, and yes you could be pregnant.
      Test again in a few days if your period doesn’t show. Good luck with whatever you want.

  7. QUESTION:
    I have a cyst on my ovary that is bleeding and i am also experiencing heavy vaginal bleeding. Whats going on?
    is the heavy vaginal bleeding (im not menstrating) from the cyst already being ruptured? or is this a sign before it ruptures? Is this something that requires immediate medical attention?

    • ANSWER:
      i used to have these as a teenager and they suck. they are sooo painful. if they popped it it may just be the drainage. if its way too much and its painful, yes go to the er, theyll check it out and give u pain meds. if not wait till the morning and call your dr.

  8. QUESTION:
    what is a bleeding cyst?
    I just found out i have a cyst on my ovary. but they said it was bleeding inside. is that worse or what does that mean? it was 4 centimeteres or hwoever they measure them they said 5 usually requires surgery but should i go ahead and have surgery???

    • ANSWER:
      An ovarian cyst is any collection of fluid, surrounded by a very thin wall, within an ovary. Any ovarian follicle that is larger than about two centimeters is termed an ovarian cyst. An ovarian cyst can be as small as a pea, or as large as a grapefruit.
      If you have a pain in the pelvis or higher abdomen you could have a bleeding ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts can be those left from ovulation which can have some bleeding into them or they can be endometriosis which can have bleeding into them or any ovarian cyst may get some bleeding into it. The concerns regarding a cyst is that it could twist or leak/rupture, less likely to happen because of the small size (3 cm).

      So, a bleeding cyst is very like a normal cyst except it is ruptured which causes it to bleed.
      You may need surgary to take it out.

  9. QUESTION:
    If you have a large bleeding ovarian cyst should you not have sex in case it ruptures?
    I have many cysts on my ovaries (Polycystic Ovaries) but one is very large and bleeding. I am being sent for a Laporoscopy soon. In the meantime if I have sexual intercourse could I rupture the cyst? Please don’t say go ask your doctor. If it was that easy, I would have asked him and not come here. I will, but I do not have another appointment until well into April.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it could most defiantly rupture! DO NOT HAVE SEX!!! Wait until your procedure is done, and until then do other sexual favors with your lover. Bursting on ovarian cyst is painful beyond measure and extremely dangerous.

  10. QUESTION:

    LMP=23.7.08.am on clomid.it caused me left ovary cyst.i had slight bleeding on 21stday.?
    cycle length is 28-30 days.i never had midcycle bleeding.is it ovulation,implantation bleeding or because of cyst?

    • ANSWER:
      I would think this could have been implantation bleeding, the timing was right. I have two cysts and they have never caused me mid cycle bleeding. Good luck!!!

  12. QUESTION:
    When you have an Ovarian Cyst, and bleed how could you tell wither its your period or your cyst bleeding?
    I was diagnose with an ovarian cyst on June 17 with a cyst that was full of liquid. Its June 28 2009 and now i just started to bleed. i didn’t get a period on May. i heard that sometimes your cyst can bleed but how can you tell wither its your period or cyst. i do have minor pain on my left ovary thats about it. what should i do.

    • ANSWER:
      The blood will generally have a different consistence and pattern if from a cyst than if from the uterus. Also, a burst cyst will likely hurt A LOT. So if there’s a huge amount of pain, followed by bleeding, that’s probably a cyst, and you will need to call the doc right away, or to be safe, go to the emergency room.

  13. QUESTION:
    late/early periods… yet little to no bleeding… cyst or pregnant? and when to test?
    As of right now my period is late, but lately my periods have been irregular the past 2 months, and i am not sure why, they have always been regular…. in oct. it was 2 days early, i bled a lil bit.. spotted mostly, and then it was gone within a day, and then in november it was 6 days late, i bled for a few hours, spotted for 2 and then it was gone….. and i had a blood test last week or the week before, it was neg, the reason i asked for a blood test at the doc’s office was because i got 3 hpt’s that were pos.. i went to the doc, and it was neg. Anyone ever had anything like this before? Wat do you ladies think it could be? someone mentioned maybe a cyst on my ovary… wat would the symptoms be for that? just curious….. I honestly haven’t been stressed out or anything lately either for my periods to be so irregular, my whole life they have been regular , and things are going pretty good so wat do you think? The pos.’s that i got were faint, i have a pic. but i get conflicted answers as to if they can see it or not, i have posted it before….. i just feel really bloated, but any symptom that I have could result from my period coming on i would imagine, it could be late i guess since it is not regular lately… wat do you think? Should i test or? just curious if anyone else has had this? and wat do you think could be the result of this? the reason i mentioned bloating is because my boobs are bigger… hurt sometimes, darkening of areolas… naseau… pants are tighter… and massive headaches.. i know this could all be a symptom of my period if it comes…. so should i not be freakin out?….and how long should i wait to test if i don’t get it? i was told a week late is nothing to worry about….. any suggestions?….. just confused and need help. plz dont’ be mean. and any answers would be great:) ( or opinions rather) thank you all ahead of time…
    Also how far along were you before you found out you were pregnant? :) jw cuz i have heard stories about women not finding out until they were a few months along , that al of their tests were neg. and they were pregnant the whole time.
    if i am pregnant, i would be about a month or so … at the most.
    also, i woldn’t care if i was pregnant or not, that is not the case i was just looking for some advice…. also i am having some strange discharge like watery…. just thought i would mention….
    they weren’t EXACTLY the same, one lasted longer than the other and taht was in october…. not november. november literally lasted an hour and a half and taht is it.. i do not think that is normal.

    • ANSWER:
      i have cysts and they hurt alot and some times its just like your about to start. If theres a chance that thats what it is go to the dr. they can check and give you med that will make it all better. i am also 6 months pregnant and for the first 3 months every month on time i had light spotting and every test said neg. but i felt preg so just keep taking test every month or so for 2 months you will know soon enough. the sooner you know your pregnant the longer you have to wait to meet your new baby,

  14. QUESTION:
    Can an ovarian cyst cause bleeding in early pregnancy?
    I have had various spotting during this pregnancy but my HCG levels are rising. It is still too early to see anything via ultrasound but ectopic has been rulled out and they also found a large cyst on my left ovary. Could this be the reason for the spotting?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it is possible for an ovarian cyst to cause bleeding in a pregnancy, but it may or may not be it in your case. Some woman do have various times of spotting in their pregnancy due to many different reasons and go on to have a healthy full term baby.

      I would definitely talk to your doctor more about the cyst and keep an eye on the bleeding. If it ever turns bright red that means that it is not old blood which means you need to call your doctor ASAP.

      Good luck with everything!

  15. QUESTION:

I had some bleeding from the cyst in the middle of the month…mid cycle also…but my period has never come. I would be 2 and a half weeks late today….could i be pregnant???

    • ANSWER:
      Possibly. Periods don’t necessarily cause you to not be able to become pregnant.

  16. QUESTION:
    Can an ovarian cyst rupture an ovary or fallopian tube?
    I’ve had cysts for years, and now that I’m not on birth control they’re worse then ever. I recently had a late period that coincided with one of the cysts rupturing, but it didn’t seem like a normal period. The pain was all in my ovary, the bleeding was massive but only lasted 2 days (instead of the usual 6) should I be worried?

    • ANSWER:
      Depending on the size of the cyst it could possibly rupture an ovary but I would recommend checking with your doctor as well to see what she says. Also, let her know that you are concerned about all the pain that you are having.

  17. QUESTION:
    this just isn’t normal, please help?
    okay, well this all started about three weeks ago, and back then my symptoms were:
    - three days after my period
    - lower pelvic, and back pain (mainly left side) – quite bad
    Was told I had a Haemorragic cyst on my ovary (bleeding cyst)
    - apparently this was normal… pain went away after about 5 days

    Since then, I have had on and off lower back pain, and sometimes abdominal pain. I have been getting very constipated, and bloated. The constipation is not the typical constipation, but it is like
    - I can not move my bowels
    - never any poo in my rectum, it feels like it gets blocked somewhere befre it enters there, and just can’t move
    - use of laxatives
    it’s like it just can’t move through my system! sorry for the grossness!
    and also, on my back (lefthnd side) is a lumpy thing, that is internal (not on the skin) it is not visable, but can be felt.
    When you feel it, it kind of feels fluidy.
    I need some help, i’m only 14!
    I’ve been internet researching and it keeps coming up with scary things, like a spinal tumor, or ovarian problems.
    What could this be?

    • ANSWER:
      darling this sounds miserable.
      i would just go to the doctor
      please just do it for your own good.
      you are not going to find a cure on the internet.
      just get professional help before it gets worse!
      good luck and i hope you feel better hunny!:)

  18. QUESTION:
    I am 2 weeks pregnant and have a cyst on my right ovary, could this cause spotting or bleeding?
    My doctor said the cyst was the cause of the cramps on the right side of my stomach. She also said that the cyst was a good thing giving the baby extra nutrients. And that everything else is good, but we cant figure out whats causing me to bleed or “spot”. Does anyone have any experience with this? She said baby is growing as it should, and I have another doctors app this afternoon. If you have any experience or know someone who has, I would love some insight. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well, I had some spotting in the beginning of both my full term pregnancies. Take it real easy and listen to your dr. You got a long way to go yet! Good luck and congrats!

  19. QUESTION:
    Should I decide on a partial or full hysterectomy at age 31?
    I have two children and have had my tubes tied for five years. Since then I have very heavy and irregulary peiods (atleast two a month) with severe pain. Recently I found out that I have a bleeding cyst on my right ovary and one that is not bleeding on my left. My doctor is considering hysterectomy if my cervical biopsy doesn’t show simple infection. Has any one else been through this. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      I was your age when I had a total hysterectomy. My gyn. told me that my pain was from my ovaries and I would continue having it if I didn’t have them removed. He also said that the majority of women who have a partial are back within six months having their ovaries removed. I’d say get it all done at once, that way it is over with. If you take your HRT on a regular basis, you should have no problems with hot flashes, osteoporosis, etc.

  20. QUESTION:
    cysts on my ovaries bleeding or miscarriage?
    I have two small cysts on my ovaries, but ive also bee TTC.
    My period isnt due for another 7 day’s, yet im have HEAVY bleeding [3 tampons an hour!] When normaly i could use 1 tampon (if i didnt change it) for 3 days which is normaly how long i have my period.

    • ANSWER:
      You should go to the emergency room or urgent care now. If you are really bleeding that heavily, you may be experiencing a miscarriage. Let the doctors sort it out for you, you should not be soaking 3 tampons/per hour. That is a medical emergency.

  21. QUESTION:
    I need help! Bleeding after ovarian cyst removed!! *URGENT*?
    Last year I was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome and just about a month ago I had a cyst on my right ovary removed because it was 3in in diameter on the outside of my ovary. 2 days after the surgery I started to bleed, heavily, for over a week. I called the surgeons office and they said for me to go see my personal doctor, well I dont have one so i had to go to the health department and they put me on birth control, two a day and I should stop bleeding. I haven’t stopped bleeding yet!!!

  22. QUESTION:
    I have a clear cyst on my left ovary. I have been bleeding for 5 weeks. Is that normal for an ovarian cyst?
    I have been getting my period every other week for 4 months. Had a procedure done in which they injected my uterus w/ water to then do an ultrasound to check for cysts in the uterine lining. They did not find one. But they did find one on my left ovary. Now, since that procedure I have been bleeding daily for 5 weeks. Is it true that to get the cyst removed I will not be able to have more children? Is there other procedures to do?

    • ANSWER:
      You need to talk to your doctor–you shouldn’t be bleeding for 5 weeks!

      It is not true that if you get the cyst removed, you can’t have children. That’s just silly. Who told you that? You have TWO ovaries. You only need ONE ovary in order to have children. Plus, a skilled surgeon can remove just the cyst, and leave the ovary in you, so you’ll still have two ovaries. Though, depending on the cyst, it’s always possible that it can’t be removed, so the doc might have to take out the ovary, too. There’s no way to be 100% sure until after the surgery. Since your fertility is of concern to you, you might want to talk to a fertility expert–they can do the surgery (if you need surgery) and will be skilled at preserving your ability to have children. One other thing you can try before going the further step of having surgery is to start taking birth control pills. That can often shrink cysts.

  23. QUESTION:
    Would a ovarian cyst cause heavy bleeding?
    I have a 2.5 cm mass on my left ovary and my Dr said that it is nothing to worry about and that it would be gone by this month. But I am having a lot of cramping and heavy dark red bleeding between periods. And my periods have been 5-7 days late for the last two months lasting 2-3 days.
    Should I go back?
    my period is not heavy, actually it is really light. I am bleeding really heavy BETWEEN periods.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, I know from experience that cysts on the ovary can cause or at least factor into heavy and painful periods. There may also be another reason though, like endometriosis. You should go back to your doctor and tell him/her about your new symptoms. I was put on birth control pills to regulate my cycle and stop excessive bleeding and that may be an option for you.

  24. QUESTION:
    Cyst on Ovary – Cause of Menstruation?
    Would a cyst on my ovary cause irregular bleeding for over 2 weeks?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, ovarian cysts can cause irregular periods and longer than usual periods.

      Some other symptoms of ovarian cysts can include pelvic pain – constant, dull aching, pain with intercourse or pelvic pain during movement, pain during bowel movements, pelvic pain shortly after beginning or ending a menstrual period, abnormal uterine bleeding (change from normal menstrual pattern), longer than usual menstrual cycle, shorter than usual menstrual cycle, absent/missed menstruation, irregular menstruation and abdominal bloating or swelling.

      I would recommend that if you think you have an ovarian cyst that you consult with your doctor/gyno about this and ask them to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

      I have suffered from many bilateral ovarian cysts over the past 10 years and have surgery 2 times to have them removed (it wasn’t anything too serious).

      I hope this helps to answer your question. Good luck :)

  27. QUESTION:
    Postpartum bleeding for 7 weeks, had ultrasound and found 5cm cyst on left ovary?
    Hello there all,

    I have bled for 7 weeks straight (apart from a few days at 3 weeks) since my beautiful daughter was born by c-section on the 30th October. Today I had an ultrasound and a 5cm cyst was found on my left ovary and the ultrasound tech believes that that is why I am still bleeding.

    Has anybody else experienced this at all and if so what was done to fix this? CAN something be done?

    I was hoping that I would stop bleeding by Christmas but now that doesn’t look like a possibility. :-( I’m so frustrated!

    My results were sent to my OBGYN today, but he had finished work already for the day early and won’t be in until Monday morning. Another OBGYN working in the same office had to rush off for a c-section so Monday morning it is! Until then I have three sleeps! What are your thoughts?

    Thanks for your help with this!

    • ANSWER:
      I was diagnosed with cystic ovaries when I was 17. It is a hormonal condition. I wonder if the cyst was there when your doctor did the c-section. (when I had my twins via c-section my doctor drained the cysts on my ovaries) I have had cysts on my ovaries that come and go pretty much since I hit puberty. There are a few things that will help. The best and easiest answer is birth control. The pills are what work best for me. If the cyst is large enough that it is causing pain then the doctor can drain it. that is done in the doctor’s office. Also sometimes if you only have one cyst and it doesn’t come back then there are some hormones that the doctor can give (I have never done this because I have multiple cysts).

      But for me the best answer was to take birth control pills.

  29. QUESTION:
    Ovarian Cyst with vaginal bleeding after exam and previous abortion.?
    On November 20 I had to have an abortion due to serious health issues. Shortly thereafter my boyfriend and I had intercourse in hopes to conceive again. 6 weeks later still no bleeding or pain, so I went to see the doctor for a pregnancy test. My test was confirmed positive and we followed with an ultrasound. Also, just to note at my three week check up after abortion, I was confirmed to be testing negative for pregnancy. During the ultrasound the doctor noticed I had a cyst on my left ovary. He said he actually didn’t see anything in my uterus to show pregnancy but I must be from my blood test, and the cyst is just a normal part of pregnancy. He did what I believe is considered a bimanual exam of the cyst. Inserting two fingers into the vagina then pressing down on my abdomen. I felt pain, but it wasn’t too extreme. About ten minutes later I started feeling pain in my clitoris and abdomen where the cyst was located. I felt like I had to pee and crap all at once but couldn’t. Pain was also in my lower back. By the time I got home I was bleeding. At first it was dark with some tissue, but not much. Then it remained bright red and wasn’t constant, just on and off. The original pain I felt was gone except for tenderness around the ovary with the cyst. I called back to the office this morning that I visited and explained this to the nurse who answered, but since they don’t treat ovarian cysts there, there isn’t anything they can do. Since the abortion, I haven’t had anything like this and have been pain and blood free. Could the blood test have been wrong and I am not pregnant, and the doctor feeling around my ovary brought on what is now a period? Could the doctor have ruptured my ovary and that is what is causing the bleeding? I am rather worried, but do not have insurance to jump to ER as I am already owing in over ,000 in med bills. And I would hate to spend hours waiting and money I do not have just to find out it’s a period or something. Any medical advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Medical bills or not, you probably should go to an ER especially with the passage of tissue and blood. At the ER, make it very firm, that you want to keep the baby if at all possible.

      Sorry for the trauma that you have and are continuing to go through. If this pregancy is not successful, I would suggest waiting a while and let your body heal before trying again. Wait several months, maybe a year or longer. Good luck.

    cyst on ovary while pregnant?
    Ok, so I went and had an u/s done yesterday I am 6weeks 2days, the reason i had it done cause i was having just a tiny bit of bleeding…and they found a cyst on my left ovary and called it a pregnancy cyst!? well when i had an u/s done a month and a half ago there was nothing there…why now that i’m pregnant? and what can they do about it?

  31. QUESTION:
    I swallowed my permanent retainer.?
    Eating food, I swallowed my glued on lower retainer on Monday afternoon last week. I still have not passed it and my gut is on fire. The ER did x-rays and CT and MRI telling me that the wire is on my right side large intestines and that I have kidney stones in both kidneys AND a bleeding cyst on left ovary. They sent me home with NO instructions, other than I am constipated and to contact my GP.. Its been 7 days to the day and my gut burns on BOTH sides and I am hurting. I am so scared! I have pooped a few times with no wire and my tummy is swollen.

    • ANSWER:
      If it is wire, I doubt that it is going to come away of it’s own accord. I hate to say it but I think that you will need one lot of surgery to remove the lower retainer that you swallowed Monday. Go to your GP as soon as possible and organise to have a specialist surgeon do this. It is the only way out of pain.

      The next step is to get rid of the kidney stones and the bleeding cyst on the left ovary. Usually the kidney stones can be removed using laser surgery. You will need to see a specialise Urologist who will perform this operation. You will then need to see a specialist gynaecologist to very quickly remove the bleeding cyst of the left ovary. This should not be left as it could turn cancerous.

  32. QUESTION:
    Can my wife still get pregnant with a 3cm cyst on left ovary? Will it go away? It is causing severe symptoms!?
    We have been trying to have another baby. She has had this cyst for two months now. Well, we tried over Xmas and she started bleeding, have pelvic pain and back pain. Did the cyst rupture? This was a week ago and she has been bleeding (spotting) since ovulation. Her period is not due for another few days.

    • ANSWER:
      If she knows that she has a cyst then I am certain she has seen a physician. What is doing for it? A cyst usually has to be surgically removed or she will be given birth control to help reduce it and prevent more from forming. A cyst does not prevent pregnancy. They do cause a lot of pain. If a ruptured cyst caused bleeding she needs to see her physician as soon as possible. It is not unusual to spot before or after a period. Your body changes from year to year and if she was recently on birth control. That can cause spotting. Also, in the very beginning of a pregnancy some women bleed or spot, I have included a web pages below that will give you more accurate information than my own.

  33. QUESTION:
    cyst on right ovary.?
    hi im 17 years old i was told 2 days ago that i have a mass cyst on my right ovary and its bleeding its 5 cm and is solid its extremely painful and i went to the doctor today and she was a new doctor to me so she tells me that shes not going to do anything and just wait for it to go away but the thing is ive been in pain on my right side for about 4-5 months now so i think its just getting bigger do you think she made the right decision on just not doing anything about it and checking up on me in 6 weeks im in alot of pain and i feel like im going to puke i dont know how much longer i can go on with being in pain laying sitting going to the bathroom etc..and waking up every 2 hours from being in pain…im sorry if this is so long thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      You are going to have to see a different doctor. There is no reason why you should have to go through all that pain, I think it sounds like it could be something more. If it’s a non-functional cyst, it could explode and then you’re in the hospital undergoing surgery. I don’t know if going to the emergency ward is an option for you or not, but that’s what I would do. If that’s not an option, or if you think you can hang on through the night, go see a different doctor in the morning. I’m not trying to scare you but there can be some severe problems if this isn’t taken care of right away. Don’t tell the new doctor what the other one said and see if you get a different diagnosis or not. If they say the same thing, tell them you just can’t take the pain anymore and need some help with that.
      Best of luck to you.

  34. QUESTION:
    How long should you bleed when a cyst burst on your ovaries?

    • ANSWER:
      Cysts burst monthly to release an egg – that doesn’t mean that you’ll have any bleeding. If you are talking about an ovarian cyst that has grown over time, you need to be very careful.

      I had a cousin who had a cysts that grew so large, that when it burst, she had to have her ovary removed.

      I have polycystic ovaries as well, so I am pretty well versed in ovarian surgery. If you want to share more details, I may be able to give you a better answer.

    Pregnant! Cyst on Ovary. Question?
    Yes i am 6 weeks and 1 days pregnant. I went and got u/s Thursday and got to see baby heartbeat. It was 99 beats a min. They say that is normal cause it so early in pregnancy. Anyways they said everything looks good. My yolk sac was real big and (juicy). But anyways i haven’t been cramping and i had a little blood yesterday and today. I been wearing pad cause i been having discharge which they say is normal not to worry. They told me when i call that i had cyst on right ovary and it is bleeding. Could my blood be comin from they cyst or something else? Should i be worried?

    • ANSWER:
      If its not a lot of blood and you aren’t having severe cramps, I wouldn’t worry. If the blood increases or you start having pain, go get checked out right away.

      As far as the cyst:

      When you ovulate a small cyst forms in the place where the egg came from on your ovary. This cyst is called a corpus luteum cyst and you actually get one every month but it goes away right around the time you get your period. This usually non-problematic cyst produces progesterone to help thicken your uterine lining in anticipation of a fetilized egg implanting, when you are pregnant this cyst can stick around longer than normal (sometimes even until the 12th week).

      I have never heard of one bleeding though so I have no idea.

      If you have concerns about your pregnancy you should call your doctor.

  37. QUESTION:
    Worried about ovary cyst?
    Hi, hope you guys can help. Im just a total worrier and i need some advice, I have a cyst on my left ovary which has been causing a few problems and sometimes alot of pain. I go on tuesday to have another ultra sound and internal scan. If the cyst has not gone away itself what will the next step be?
    Would they just leave it? If it has grown in size over the past 6 weeks what would that mean? The lastime i was told the cyst had ruptured and was bleeding, is this OK and normal?

    • ANSWER:
      ovarian cysts are extremely common in women and usually go away themselves over time. if this happens then no further action is needed. usually you find that they are completely harmless, however some small minority have been know to cause cancer. it all depends on the size, shape and type of the cyst. its good that you’re going to see a doctor because they should know what to do because they can take look at it and evaluate it properly. the bleeding doesn’t sound too good… but you are in safe hands – your doctor will know what to do.

  38. QUESTION:
    Ovarian Cyst and Bleeding?????
    2 days ago I was in the ER due to a ovarian cyst that burst. I woke up that morning in really REALLY bad pain. Bad cramping all through my lower abs. I had an O/S done at the ER and the doc told me that I had a few cyst burst and I have a lot on my ovaries but they are nothing to worry about. I started bleeding this morning and it is unlike my period. It’s really dark red and very clotty. Could this bleeding come from the cyst? I am still having sharp pain in both my sides and bad period like cramps. What do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      See your own doctor. The ER is there to treat emergencies, but even if he’s right and you have more but they are “nothing to worry about” your doc will want to know about it. Plus, your doc can help you with pain management options. There are treatment options as well for some people with cysts- sometimes laproscopic surgery, sometimes hormone supplements.

      I’d make an appointment with your doctor ASAP. When you call to make the appointment, tell the receptionist that you were just in the ER, that the attending physician diagnosed you with cysts, but that your pain is persisting and you are having irregular bleeding.

      I’m sure the hospital checked, but is there any way you could be pregnant? Could this be a tubal pregnancy instead of cysts?

      If the pain is unbearable, the bleeding is out of control or you develop a fever, get your tail back to the ER. Don’t worry about what they think, or if you’re making a big deal out of nothing. Take care of yourself. Better to be told there’s nothing wrong than to miss something.

    • ANSWER:
      If your cycles are consistently a certain number of days apart, you can be almost assured that your ovulation will occur 14 days before your expected period…this is what you may have heard referred to as the 2 week wait. If your cycles are irregular in length, it is helpful to keep a close watch on the consistency of your cervical mucus. You will be looking for what is called “egg white” cervical mucus. The consistency will stretch between you thumb and index finger quite well….kind of like egg white would. Lastly, it’s helpful to make sure that you O after he ejaculates. That will help to move the sperm up toward the egg. Good luck!

    I just turned 30 less than a month ago and just found out I have fibroids and a cyst on my ovary… I had been bleeding for about a month straight and got very week and tired (found out I was animic). I have had symtoms of pressure on lower abdomin, some pain, breast tenderness, tired, etc… Tommorow I have my apt with the doctor to find out how many, how big and so on. I would like to know what are some of the solutions there are to these problems. I also have Factor V Leiden, a blood clotting gene, so my option of taking hormones are out of the question. Thanks for taking the time…

    • ANSWER:
      I’m 41 years old. I just had a partial hysteroctomy ( i think that is how you spell it). I also had a cyst and fibroids. with the fibroids – my doctor only found one during her exam and the ultrasound only showed one. when the doctor was doing the surgery she found a total of FIVE ! they were on the back side of my uterus they were un-detected by ultrasound and physical exam. but I too had bleeding and it was painful to have sex. my uterus was three times its normal size and i had 5 fibroids. so please tell your doctor everything. my doctor suggested birth control. but with further testing i had to have the surgery. birth control helps the fibroids not to grow anymore. good luck with the doctor. hope everything works out.

    cyst on my ovary 17 weeks pregnant?
    i’m 17 weeks pregnant and the past month or so have had a niggling pain in the same area, my lower left side just next to my hip bone (where my ovary is). it hurts when i press down on it, and sometimes it just feels like a burning pain or shooting pain on n off throughout the weeks. i’ve been to the docs and seen my midwife and both said it wasn’t anything to worry about as i’m not in loads of pain and i’m not bleeding and its prob a cyst and to get it checked out at my 20 week scan. i’m just really worried if it is a cyst that its getting bigger and will harm my baby?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi i had polycycstic ovaries im 7 weeks pregnant and all of my cysts have disappeared luckily. I asked the doctor about it before having an early scan and he said not to worry the cysts wont affect the pregnancy at all and when you give birth and have your period after they normally all disappear. It may not be a cyst i had the same feeling but on my right side but there wasn’t anything there.

  46. QUESTION:
    Exessive Bleeding and a 2″ Ovarian Cyst – Doctors won’t give me answers?
    I have been bleeding for the past 2 months. Some days it’s unbearably heavy and other days it’s light (over all annoying).
    I went to my DR to try and get some answers and all they did was blood work. They didn’t ask ANY questions.

    I went in again 2 days later because it was getting worse and pushed for an ultrasound to rule out a cyst. And guess what they found.. A 2 inch cyst on my left ovary!
    I don’t know if the bleeding is related to the cyst but I’ve also been having some pain on my left side for over a month now.. Some times it is a quick sharp pain while I’m not doing anything and other times it’s like an isolated cramp. Back pain has also been an issue and intercourse is painful but my doctors don’t want to hear any of this! (I am looking for a new one)

    They say it’s a simple cyst but it’s 2 inches and painful… Should it be removed?

    Has anyone else had a simple cyst removed?
    I have hyperhomocystinemia which is a blood clotting disorder and they don’t want to give me the pill even though my homocystine levels are fine

    • ANSWER:
      You need to find some new doctors. Unexplained bleeding for 2 solid months is not good.

      As to whether the cyst should be removed, depends. Usually they will try birth control before surgery, as it tends to shrink cysts, and it also tends to regulate periods. Why they haven’t done that with you I have no idea.

      I had a complex cyst surgically removed, but complex cysts don’t tend to resolve on their own, so my case was a bit different.

      You really need to find some different doctors who will take you seriously.

      EDIT: All the same, there’s stuff they can do. And they clearly aren’t. Birth control is just the typically “first try.” It may be out of the question in your case, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing left they can do.

I had a lap done in Jan & also had a bleeding cyst removed from my (r) ovary. While in there, my doc removed as much as the endo as she could. She then suggested I get on Lupron injections fr 6 months. I had 2 injections, (Feb & Mar). Because of the horrible side effects from the injection, I have refused my 3rd injection. I have an appointment with my doc on the 27th, is there anything else they would give me being that I cant hang with the Lupron.

    I do not want a hysterectomy now being that my DH & I do want another child. I am only 29 years old & do know that a hysterectomy is a definite in my future.

    thanks all.

      I’m so sorry that you are going through this! It is not uncommon to have such severe side effects from Lupron that you cannot continue to get the shots.

      I’m including some links that may be helpful for you – best of luck!


Adnexal Cyst Ovary

The majority of the ovarian cysts are just functional or benign. Nonetheless, the cysts of the hemorrhagic type can be ovarian cysts that are extremely painful. An ovarian cyst is a tiny closed area within an ovary that contains fluids within a thin wall. A follicle that is bigger than 2cm over the usual size is considered to be an ovarian cyst. When it is a matter of hemorrhagic cysts, the other names are: blood cyst; haematocyst; and haematoceles. A classic sign of a hemorrhagic cyst is one where pain is experienced to the right of the abdomen. Bleeding can occur fast and be extensive and submerge the whole ovary rapidly to then generate serious pain. This kind of cyst happens when a blood vessel in the system breaks and blood passes into the system. The blood in the ovary can then start to clot and this can be observed by using a sonogram. Sometimes the hemorrhagic cyst ruptures and the blood is released to flood into the abdominal cavity.

The pain may become unacceptable when the cyst breaks. Mercifully, these occurrences are auto-regulating and do not typically necessitate surgical intervention. The right level of health can be restored after a cyst ruptures if the patient takes appropriate rest. It is uncommon for blood to leave the body via the vagina. An effective medicament for the treatment of hemorrhagic cysts is considered to be tetracycline although a physician’s advice should always be taken. Upon torsion occurring, another type of painful ovarian cysts can come about. Ovarian torsion is also referred to as adnexal torsion, and is a severe and painful condition that must be urgently dealt with.
Endometroid cysts can be caused by endometriosis and are formed when a small area of endometrial tissue is rejected after bleeding. The tissue ends up as a transplant into another place where it grows larger. One of the main symptoms of endometriosis is serious and continual pain. The pain is at its most unacceptable when a cyst breaks. The blood building up in the tissue makes it turn a darker shade of brown and this phenomenon is therefore called a chocolate cyst. Upon final system rupture, fluids that were contained inside can pass into the pelvis, the uterus and the bowels.

If multiple follicular cysts are generated in the ovaries these are referred to as polycystic ovaries. This situation also known as polycystic ovarian syndrome causes problems with the correct menstruation cycle. PCOS retards the ovulation process making cysts filled with clear fluid develop next to the ovaries. PCOS is still not entirely clear to health care professionals. Nonetheless, the reasons for PCOS happening have been hypothesized as genetic weaknesses or lacking hormones. Studies indicate that insulin-resistant women have more chance of contracting PCOS. The same ovarian cells that are active in the development of teeth and hair can also contribute to dermoid cysts. This is an infrequent kind of cyst but can grow big and turn out to be quite painful. It is also frequent that women with ovarian cysts mix up the signs of endometriosis with signs of pelvic inflammatory disease.

It is often late in the diagnosis when ovarian cyst torsion is identified which often leads to necrosis or infarction of the cyst. The pain is intense in cases of ovarian torsion even if no cases of death have been recorded. Ovarian cyst torsion can be caused by a number of factors, one common one being anatomic changes. Cyst torsion is frequent for young teenagers with abnormal development such as long fallopian tubes or an absence of mesosalpinx. The presence of a large corpus lustrum during pregnancy increases the risk that the patient will suffer ovarian torsion.

Women who are being treated for infertility with for example induction of ovulation are even more menaced. The reason is that the theca lustrum cysts have a tendency to increase the volume of the ovaries. Ovarian cysts whether benign or malignant, are all at risk for torsion. There is no long-term solution using prescription medicines for painful ovarian cysts, even if there may be temporary pain relief. A holistic program however will tackle the problem at the root and thus bring a long lasting remedy. Conventional medicine on the other hand only focuses on the symptoms. Any results are therefore temporary and maybe accompanied by various side effects. A holistic agenda is a multi-dimensional program that targets all the underlying reasons that make ovarian cysts develop. There are many factors that contribute to the presence of painful ovarian cysts. These factors may either initiate the generation of cysts or simply aggravate the condition of those that already exist.

      if you have polycystic ovaries you need to get a second opinion. it’s not just a cystic disorder, it’s got to do with your whole endocrine system, hormone levels, and blood sugar too. you could be insulin resistant, and have a ton of other issues you didn’t even know about. it happened to me. get checked out.

    Kindly help me by giving a reply,
    thanks,farhad

    • ANSWER:
      Adnexal means pertaining to accessory organs or tissues as in the relationship of the fallopian tubes and the uterus. Varices are varicose veins or arteries. So it may mean that the left fallopian tube had a few varicose veins. It’s not “nabotian”, it’s nabothian cysts. These are common in women of reproductive age, especially in those who have had children. The pathology report doesn’t sound alarming to me. It sounds good. Her hemoglobin’s a little low but that’s nothing that iron supplements can’t correct.

      If you are truly concerned, and I don’t really see anything to be concerned about, you should be sitting, right now, with her doctor asking these questions. Don’t you agree that person is your very best source of information about your wife’s reproductive health?

I had a sharp pinching sensation in my right side that went away a couple of weeks later. Now it’s almost 3 months later and I again felt the pinching at the start of my period a week ago. I went to my OBGyn last week who did a pelvic and said she felt nothing. She said the ER report had said they found “no adnexal mass”, which meant it was a simple cyst. Neither she nor the ER docs seemed worried in the least. I am worrying myself sick (that’s my nature!) about this whole thing and would love to hear from others who have had ovarian cysts! Please tell me some things so I can stop making myself sick with worry – I’ve never been diagnosed w/one before so it’s freaking me out. I have a toddler but would like more kids and am worried about that as well… thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      I had one at age 19, but it went away. And I have three children now. You gyno will keep an eye on this when she does your pap test. Simple cyst do not turn cancerous.
      It is easy to say, “Dont worry”, but hard to do it. Later on in life I had a small tumor on an ovary, but the doctor did one of those micro incisions, and I went home the same day.
      Trust your doctors dear.

  9. QUESTION:
    Lesion on spleen, CT and Ultrasound?
    Not too long ago I went to the Emergency for severe, severe abdominal/pelvic pain. (I’m a 21 year old female, by the way). A CT was done to rule out appendicitis. I have a copy of the report, and a few things were discovered…

    LOWER THORAX: There is a small focal area of pleural thickening along he medial left lung base. There is dense breast tissue bilaterally.

    IMPRESSION: There is a 3-cm right adnexal cyst with a moderate amount of free pelvic fluid which is particularly seen in the cul-de-sac region and within the endometrium.
    Approximately 7-mm low- attenuation lesion in the inferior aspect of the spleen which is too small to characterize in the current study. This lesion is well circumscribed and may represent a benign cyst. However, attenuation value is higher than expected for a simple cyst possibly due to volume averaging. Ultrasound may be helpful to differentiate between cyst versus a solid lesion.

    The ER doctor didn’t mention the lesion on the spleen, only the ovarian cysts. A pelvic ultrasound was done that day.

    FINDINGS: The uterus is retroverted. There is moderate uniform thickening of the endometrium to 12 mm, which presumably relates to the patient’s menstrual cycle. The right ovary has multiple cysts, the largest of which measure 3 cm in diameter. The left ovary has multiple follicular cysts that measure 5 mm and less in diameter.

    I understand that ovarian cysts are quite common, and generally don’t cause any problems. It appears mine ruptured and that;s what caused me to be in pain.

    What I’m curious about is the pleural thickening-I haven’t been exposed to asbestos to my knowledge, what can cause this?

    Also, several days after my ER visit, my primary doctor ordered an ultrasound to check out the splenic lesion.

    FINDINGS: There is an 8-mm round hypoechoic area in the spleen that is difficult to characterize. There may be slight acoustic enhancement. Although this could represent a simple cyst, it does not display the classic appearance. A folow-up splenic ultrasound study could be performed in 3 to 6 months to document stability.

    I understand doctors are busy; I’ve gotten some answers but will have to wait until my next appointment for further clarification. I’d like some additional opinions, thanks in advance for any help =]

    • ANSWER:
      I’m not really sure what it is you want to know. Are you wanting to know if you should be concerned about the findings? The answer is no.
      It is very common for people to have various little things in their body. Usually they don’t know it and usually no one knows what caused it. A tiny spot of plural thickening is not a reason to think it could be mesothelioma, which takes 25 years to manifest.
      The lesion in the spleen is very small and not seen well enough to call it a cyst so the only thing to do is watch it. I would be more worried about the ovarian cysts as they are FAR more likely to cause you problems.

  10. QUESTION:
    Mass found on my right ovary. So scared?
    I had a miscarriage last week and during the transvaginal ultrasound, they found a mass on my ovary. The doctor at the ER said it was a dermoid cyst and didn’t seem concerned. However, on the paperwork she gave to me to give to my OB, it identified it as a “complex adnexal mass”. Tomorrow I see my OB but I am sick with worry. Anyone have a similar experience?
    Thank you for all the helpful responses. I will try to calm down a little.
    My OB wasn’t concerned about the mass. He said it was just a cyst that developed during the pregnancy and he will monitor it. In all, he disagreed with nearly everything the ER told me.

    • ANSWER:
      How old are you? If you’re fairly young, the chances that this is something serious like cancer is pretty low. Cysts are common and are found all the time on the ovaries. “complex adnexal mass” is just medical terminology that sounds more frightening than what is probably really is. My ovaries are full of cysts and all are benign. Don’t worry. If there was something they deemed might be serious, you would have been pushed into seeing a doc that day or the next….or they would have called in a specialist while you were in the ER. This is just protocol they are following. Don’t worry about it. I wouldn’t at all. The doc will get it solved for you tomorrow and will probably tell you it’s just a benign lesion.

      Sorry about the loss of your baby and I wish you all the best.

    sorry this is a little bit long try and bare with me
    the clinic thinks im almost 6 weeks pregnant i think im 3-4 weeks pregnant due to irregular periods that are from 22-53 day cycles
    * went to ER for spotting red and brown on monday at around 11 am the hcg was 436
    * ER for update on tuesday to see if its miscarriage 9 am hcg was 558

    * Monday : Transvaginal pelvic ultrasound was performed. Positive pregnancy test with spotting.

    * Endometrium, is somewhat thickened . There is no evidence of intrauterine pregnancy. A small amount of fluid is seen cul-de-sac. <- what the heck does that mean????

    * The right ovary contains a simple cyst. Adequate blood flow is seen to the right ovary. No adnexal masses seen on the right.

    * The left ovary there is a complex heterogeneous cystic mass measuring 12 by 9 by 7mm.(<-what does that mean?) Thre is some increased vascularity to this mass. With a positive pregnancy test, and absence of intrauterine pregnancy, this complex mass in the left could represent ectopic pregnancy. There is a minimal amount of free fluid present.

    what could all this mean????
    i have no pain just periodic cramps like 3 in 24 hours spotting has continued and goes from brown to a little red and stops then starts
    what could the small amount of fluid seen in the cul-de-sac be ?

    has anyone been through or knew someone else with similar report ? how did it turn out ?

  17. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to have in between periods while taking contraceptive pills (11 pills) for the first time?
    I am 35 years old. My menstrual period became irregular since August, 2009. I missed last August, which I expected to come on the 22nd, but it came only on September 12. Spotting only from September 12 to 14 then became heavy on Sept. 15 to 19. It lasted until Sept. 22. I was worried, so I got an transvaginal ultrasound. The result were: 0.7 endometrium; normal size anteverted uterus w/ myoma uteri (size about 1 cm only, so small my ob said); nabothian cysts; no adnexal mass; clear cul de sac; no ovary pathology detected). My ob-gyne’s finding was hormonal imbalance. She gave me vitamin e 400 iu. I got my period again on October 12, but very light (like spotting only) till Oct. 20. On Oct. 21 to 22 with little blood clots, it was a little heavier, then spotting again from the 23rd to 27th. On the 28th to November 2, was heavier with many blood clots coming out. My blood pressure goes down to 90/60. I was so worried so I went to see my doctor again. She said it was really hormonal imbalance. So she gave me contraceptive pills (I never took it before) which will i take for 3 months to balance the hormones, and iberet-folic 500, aside from vitamin e. I have been taking the pills for 12 days now. While taking the pills, I had light-brown discharge (on and off). On the 11th pill, I bleed (with little blood clots). Now, it’s gone again. I was so worried, really don’t know what to do. Please help me.

    • ANSWER:
      It takes your body up to 3 months to get used to new birth control pills (even when switching). It is highly common to see spotting in-between periods. If after 3 months you are still having issues you might want to see if another pill would be better for you. (Each woman interacts differently with every pill!)

      Also, see if you can get tested for pre-menopause. Sounds like that may be the cause of all of this.

  18. QUESTION:
    Translation of Pelvic U/S?
    I was diagnosed with PCOS today(mild apparently) but the sonographer wrote:

    ‘The uterus is antevertes and lies in the midline measuring 7.9 x 4.2 x 5.5 with an endometrial thickness of 12.6mm”

    “Ten predominately perpherially based subcentimetre follicles in the right and left ovary. Right ovary measures 13.6cc & the left 6.5cc”

    “There is no free fluid within the pelvis and no adnexal mass lesions are appreciated”

    1. Is my endometrial thickness normal? Does this have anything to do with conceiving?

    2. Is my right ovary larger because I’m going to ovulate? (im currently CD 16)

    3. If i have 10 cysts on my ovaries (not sure if this is 10 in total or 10 cysts per ovary) does this mean I am not ovulating?

    • ANSWER:
      PCOD/PCOS in excess, along with the absence of ovulation, may cause infertility

      Symptoms of PCOD, such as weight gain, excess hair growth (particularly on the face), thinning hair, and acne, can be upsetting and affect a woman’s confidence. Losing a pregnancy can cause feelings of loss and guilt. Coping with PCOD can be stressful and women can experience depression and mood swings. …

      PCOS – Treatment
      PCOS- Menstrual Irregularities
      Anovulation can lead to an abnormal overgrowth of the uterine lining (endometrial hyperplasia) increasing the risk of uterine cancer. Menstrual abnormalities can be treated with cyclic progestins or oral contraceptives. It is recommended that treatment allows for shedding of the uterine lining at least every three months.
      The goal of PCOS treatment is to decrease the amount of androgens in the bloodstream, thereby decreasing the clinical effects of androgens on the body (e.g., hair growth and acne).
      PCOS- Metabolic Abnormalities
      Insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (elevated blood insulin levels) are common in women with PCOS. These metabolic abnormalities can lead to impaired glucose tolerance and type II diabetes mellitus. Currently, metformin, an insulin-sensitizing medication, is used for the treatment of patients with PCOS. The goals of treatment include improving insulin resistance and lowering insulin levels, thereby improving associated metabolic problems ..
      Treatment must be designed to address both short-term goals and long-term consequences of PCOS to the patient

  20. QUESTION:
    Can you please interpret my pelvic scan report for me (It’s in doctor language)?
    I just received my reports today and I have an appt with my gyno next week to discuss the results but I’m so worried. I just want to know if everything is ok?? like when it says “several follicles present” does that mean I have polycystic ovaries??

    *11/07/07*

    Findings: Transabdominal scan only (patient not sexualy active)

    The uterus is anteverted and appears normal with no fibroids or adenomyosis seen. 58mm in length. Endometrium is homogeneous and measures 7mm in thickness. Right ovary is enlarged (42cc in volume) and contains a 4×3.3.8cm complex cystic lesion. No internal vascularity found. Multiple linear echogenic echoes within the cystic mass noted. Left ovary appears normal with several follicles noted and containing a 2cm simple cyst. No free fluid seen.

    Comment: Right ovarian cystic lesion, nature is unsure. Most likely either a dermoid cyst or hemorrhagic cyst. Follow up scan in 6 weeks recommended.

    *02/12/08*

    Scan on 11/07/07 showed the right ovary to be 42cc. This included 4cm complex cystic lesion. Query dermoid, query haemorrhagic cyst.

    Transabdominal study only. Transvaginal scan declined.
    Findings: The uterus is normal in shape, size and echotexture. No myometrial lesion is present. The endometrium is normal in appearance with a double layer of thickness of 6mm. Both ovaries are normal in appearance. The right is 9cc and the left is 4.5cc. Several small follicles are present in each ovary. A simple 20mm cyst is present in the right ovary compatible with a dominant follicle. There is no adnexal mass or free fluid present. Both kidneys are normal.

    Comment: Resolution of the previously documented right ovarian complex cyst. Normal pelvic ultrasound.

    • ANSWER:
      Just focus on the “Comment” at the end of each report, that’s all you need to understand, the rest of the report is descriptive documentation.

      On the initial scan in November, they found a right ovarian cyst, which on follow-up scanning in February, it has resolved. It’s disappeared, it’s gone! You got a normal pelvic ultrasound. :o)

      The part on the Feb report that says, “A simple 20mm cyst is present in the right ovary compatible with a dominant follicle” is completely normal. (It means that you are ovulating and this “cyst” is actually the egg that is getting ready for ovulation this menstrual cycle).

      — P.S. This does not mean that you should not go to your Gyne appointment though. Let your Gyne, discuss the whole report with you, and he/she may have additional recommendations for you. Your doctor knows your whole case, I only saw your report.

  21. QUESTION:
    Can anyone help me understand this MRI?
    My dr says mild adenomyosis, but I think the report is conflicting and states other issues, any ideas?

    MRI of the pelvis without gadolinium.

    Technique:
    1. Axial T1 SE.
    2. Axial T2 SSFSE with fat-sat.
    3. Coronal T2 SSFSE with fat-sat.
    4. Sagittal T2 SSFSE with fat-sat.
    5. Axial proton density with fat saturation.
    6. Coronal 3 mm T2-weighted images with fat-sat.

    Findings: The uterus is enlarged measuring approximately 9.6 x
    6.5 x 5.0 cm. The uterus demonstrates myometrial heterogeneity
    with what appears to be linear focal areas of alternating
    decreased and increased signal. The junctional zone is distinct
    and normal in appearance measuring approximately 5 mm in
    thickness. There is a focal cystic structure in the right mid to
    lower segment junctional zone which measures approximately 7 x 3
    mm. This is consistent with focal adenomyosis. Diffuse signal
    abnormality in the uterus does not appear to represent
    adenomyosis. This may represent venous engorgement, possibly from
    pelvic congestion syndrome. There appear to be prominent adnexal
    varices which are not well evaluated without contrast. This could
    be better assessed with endovaginal ultrasound using Doppler
    interrogation with Valsalva maneuver. Doppler evaluation of the
    uterus might also be helpful at the same time.

    There is a tiny 3 to 4 mm hypointense lesion in the right aspect
    of the uterus adjacent to the junctional zone which may represent
    a very small submucosal fibroid.

    The cervix is within normal limits. The vagina is normal.

    The right ovary is within normal limits measuring approximately
    2.5 x 1.7 x 1.3 cm. The left ovary measures approximately 3.7 x
    2.3 x 2.8 cm and contains a dominant simple-appearing 1.9 cm
    cyst.

    A small to moderate amount of free fluid is also noted in the
    posterior cul-de-sac.

    There is no evidence for pelvic adenopathy. The bladder is within
    normal limits. The visualized bowel and rectum appear to be
    within normal limits. The bones of the pelvis appear normal.

    Impression:
    1. Enlarged uterus with slightly heterogeneous linear myometrial
    parenchymal structures which suggests vascular engorgement,
    possibly related to pelvic congestion syndrome. The findings of
    diffuse heterogeneity are not consistent with diffuse adenomyosis
    as the junctional zone is normal. This could be better evaluated
    with endovaginal ultrasound with Doppler with and without
    Valsalva maneuver.
    2. There is a small focus of adenomyosis in the junctional zone
    measuring approximately 7 x 3 mm. This is of uncertain clinical
    significance.
    3. Prominent adnexal varices are suggested. This again would be
    best evaluated with endovaginal ultrasound and Doppler with and
    without Valsalva.
    4. 1.9 cm simple-appearing left ovarian cyst.
    5. Normal right ovary.
    I guess the other issues are that it says something about a submucosal fibroid, venous engorgement (whatever that is), and prominent adnexal varices (whatever that is). I agree with the cyst on the ovary being due to ovulation.

    I guess I just need to be patient and see what my dr says. I am having a hysterecomty at the end of July anyways, but my other MRI never showed anything.

    • ANSWER:
      What about it makes you think it might be other issues? It sounds like your ovaries are normal (the cyst on the left is likely a normal cyst produced due to ovulation). Your pelvis is normal, cervix and vagina are normal. So it’s the ovary with the problem, and though it could be several possibilities, adenomyosis seems most likely. You could get the tests done that are recommended in the report to confirm or refute that, but I can’t comment from here without seeing anything.

  22. QUESTION:
    What is the procedure our patient had?
    FINDINGS: On bimanual exam, the uterus was found to be anteverted at approximately six weeks in size. There were no adnexal masses appreciated. The vulva and perineum appeared normal. Laparoscopic findings revealed normal appearing uterus, fallopian tubes bilaterally as well as ovaries bilaterally. There was a functional cyst on the left ovary. There was filmy adhesion in the left pelvic sidewall. There were two clear lesions consistent with endometriosis, one was on the right fallopian tube and the other one was in the cul-de-sac. The uterosacrals and ovarian fossa as well as vesicouterine peritoneum were free of any endometriosis. The liver was visualized and appeared normal. The spleen was also visualized.
    INDICATIONS: This patient is a 34-year-old gravida 4, para-4-0-0-4 Caucasian female who desires permanent sterilization. She recently had a spontaneous vaginal delivery in June and her family planning is complete.

    PROCEDURE IN DETAIL: After informed consent was obtained in layman’s terms, the patient was taken back to the operating suite and placed under general anesthesia. She was then prepped and draped and placed in the dorsal lithotomy position. A bimanual exam was performed and the above findings were noted. Prior to beginning the procedure, her bladder was drained with a red Robinson catheter. A weighted speculum was placed in the patient’s posterior vagina and the 12 o’ clock position of the cervix was grasped with a single-toothed tenaculum. The cervix was dilated so that the uterine elevator could be placed. Gloves were exchanged and attention was then turned to the anterior abdominal wall where the skin at the umbilicus was everted and using the towel clips, a 1 cm infraumbilical skin incision was made. The Veress needle was then inserted and using sterile saline ______ the pelvic cavity. The abdomen was then insufflated with appropriate volume and flow of CO2. The #11 bladed trocar was then placed and intraabdominal placement was confirmed with the laparoscope. A second skin incision was made approximately 2 cm above the pubic symphysis and under direct visualization, a 7 mm bladed trocar was placed without difficulty. Using the Hulka clip applicator, the left fallopian tube was identified, followed out to its fimbriated end and the Hulka clip was then placed snugly against the uterus across the entire diameter of the fallopian tube. A second Hulka clip was then placed across the entire diameter just proximal to this. There was good hemostasis at the fallopian tube. The right fallopian tube was then identified and followed out to its fimbriated end and the Hulka clip was placed. snugly against the uterus across the entire portion of the fallopian tube in a 90 degree angle. A second Hulka clip was placed just distal to this again across the entire diameter. Good hemostasis was obtained. At this point, the abdomen was desufflated and after it was desufflated, the suprapubic port site was visualized and found to be hemostatic. The laparoscope and remaining trocars were then removed with good visualization of the peritoneum and fascia and the laparoscope was removed. The umbilical incision was then closed with two interrupted #4-0 undyed Vicryl. The suprapubic incision was then closed with Steri-Strips. The uterine elevator was removed and the single-toothed tenaculum site was found to be hemostatic. The patient tolerated that procedure well. The sponge, lap, and needle counts were correct x2. She will follow up postoperatively for followup care.

    • ANSWER:
      Jennifer…you are fine. But for future health, I would minimize sodas which are high in phosphates. Try to eat a healthy diet with organic fruits, and vege.s. Eat complex grains, and minimize sweets. I would eat one serving of oatmeal every day to help clean out your arteries/veins. Also try to get omega 3 oils in your diet, like one to two tablespoons of organic flax oil every day. I would also take a magnesium supplement (500 mg of magnesium citrate) and a vitamin D supplement (2000 IU of Vitamin D3) every day. These also will help keep your vascular system healthy among other systems of your body. The ovarian cyst is normal. Drink plenty of fluids and minimize junk food and drinks. This will help the cyst clear.

      PCOS – Treatment
      PCOS- Menstrual Irregularities
      Anovulation can lead to an abnormal overgrowth of the uterine lining (endometrial hyperplasia) increasing the risk of uterine cancer. Menstrual abnormalities can be treated with cyclic progestins or oral contraceptives. It is recommended that treatment allows for shedding of the uterine lining at least every three months.
      The goal of PCOS treatment is to decrease the amount of androgens in the bloodstream, thereby decreasing the clinical effects of androgens on the body (e.g., hair growth and acne).
      PCOS- Metabolic Abnormalities
      Insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (elevated blood insulin levels) are common in women with PCOS. These metabolic abnormalities can lead to impaired glucose tolerance and type II diabetes mellitus. Currently, metformin, an insulin-sensitizing medication, is used for the treatment of patients with PCOS. The goals of treatment include improving insulin resistance and lowering insulin levels, thereby improving associated metabolic problems ..
      Treatment must be designed to address both short-term goals and long-term consequences of PCOS to the patient
