    Ovarian Cysts - Anyone know about them?

    I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst this past Saturday. My blood work was normal, so the possibility of it being malignant has been ruled out. But the thing is annoying the crap out of me! I feel like I am in the first trimester of pregnancy with the symptoms I have been experiencing - with the nausea being the worst part of it.

    Has anyone else dealt with this problem? Any ways to make the pain go away without medication? Did you have it drained or surgically removed?

    Both of my sisters have had them, both were surgically removed. They are just fine now and the cysts never returned.

    Hope you're doing ok mamabot!
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    Re: Ovarian Cysts - Anyone know about them?

    I had one when I got pregnant the last time. It was about the size of a dime the day I found out I was pregnant. When I had her, it was the size of an egg. That day we scheduled to have my tubes tied 8 weeks out and it was the size of a baseball at the point that it was removed. It was attached to an ovary, so that was removed also. Although, mine didn't bother me at all.

    I had one when I was about 18. I had thought I was pg for the longest time - until the cyst burst. I bled internally for about 7 hours. They couldn't figure out what was going on. They decided on for emergency exploratory surgery and discovered the cyst. They were able to remove it and repair the ovary. BCPs will prevent you from ovulating, therefore prevent a cyst. I never had another one - (crosses fingers) I can't take BCPs any longer.

    Re: Ovarian Cysts - Anyone know about them?

    Thanks for the responses guys.

    The one thing that I would like to avoid is the option of birth control pills/shots/implants. I have had really bad luck with it in the past, from constant bleeding with the pill to horrible side effects with Depo Provera.

    My mom and grandfather both had dermoid cysts, which is what my mom keeps thinking I have. The ultrasound person did not find any signs of the cyst being dermoid. I am patiently waiting for my referral to go through so I can get the gyn appointment done and over with.

    Here's another hug -

    A friend of mine currently has one the size of a grapefruit. Her doctor recommended a full hysterectomy, but she's waiting for a second opinion. It's not malignant, but does cause a great discomfort.

    I have found that some times these doctors want to do a hysterectomy and a lot of times its not needed. get a second opinion if this is the case. I was told just before my daughter was concieved that I needed one, I looked up all the pro's and cons I decided no way! Turns out I never needed one! I was told I would not be able to have any more kids also, wow where they wrong My daughter is living proof. Always get a second opinion when its your body. Some things can not be put back together again, your body is one of them

    Re: Ovarian Cysts - Anyone know about them?

    I had cysts when I was trying to get pg and had to go on birth control pills for a month to get rid of them. Mine were caused by fertility meds, though, so I don't know if I'm being any help to you at all! {{hugs}}

    Re: Ovarian Cysts - Anyone know about them?

    Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear this! Good news that they don't think it is cancer. Ask your doctor about your options and then seek a second opinion.

    My evil stepmother had an ovarian cyst removed a couple of years ago. They were unable to remove the cyst without the ovary for some reason, but she recovered quickly.

    Go shopping, it will make you feel better!

    Love,

    So sorry to hear the news! I have been lucky to know have "female issues" in my life.

    I'll be thinking positive thoughts that you'll be feeling better and get good MD's who can answer all your questions.

    Aw, Michele! I've known people with uterine cysts that have had them removed, no ovarian cysts. Please take care and keep us updated!!
