ovarian-cysts

Sounds like ovarian cysts. I had those one on each side. It caused mid cycle heavy bleeding for several months. They finally resolved on their own. Have you taken a pregnancy test also just in case? Good luck to you.
Since my last child was born 5 years ago symptoms of endometriosis better. No painful periods. SInce end of May I have had bleeding between periods . Bleeding not heavy at all. Dull ache in center of back but no abdominal pain. Went for yearly GYN visit and had ultrasound. Discovered what they call a complex 6 cm cyst on right ovary and 2cm on left. Doctor said chance of cancer low but more likely endometriosis. Had CA-125 done today but no results yet. I am still worried.
I would get regular periods, but I would be constantly bleeding in-between. After I visited the doctor, I had an ultrasound and they found that I had developed a cyst, and the doctor put me on birth control pills. I later saw an alternative medicine practitioner who told me that the cyst was related to dairy consumption. I had just recently become lactose intolerant, so I proceded to cut all dairy products from my diet.
I went to the doc almost 6 months ago for irregular bleeding (frequent...2-3 weeks between periods). After all of the regular tests (I'm 42) I had a vag u/s in early Jan. Docs found a 3.7cm complex cyst in left ovary (septated) and several other smaller ones in left and right. Since then I have had increased cramping/backache and it seems to be getting progressively worse (more painful, more frequent). My doc is seeing me again on Friday (24th) and said they would evaluate again then.
The endocrinologist I am working with said unequivocally that there is no syndromic relationship between hypothyroidism and ovarian cysts. It does seem suspicious that so many of you on this board have issues with both however I wonder if the relationship is simply coincicental. Hypothyroidism and ovarian cysts are both extremely common medical problems that tend to develop around the same age so the relationship may not be explained by a simple cause and effect model.
There is a coorelation between ovarian cysts and dairy. Milk doesn't cause the cysts, but rather the hormones that are given to the cattle and passed on through milk cause a hormonal imbalance in some women that contributes to the formation of ovarian cysts. This occurance seems to be worse in women who also consume a lot of caffeine. This may be the cause of your periods becoming abnormal when you consume milk.
Prior to diagnosis I had exceptionally heavy periods (why I went to the doc), breakthrough spotting in between periods and at least one two week period. I was concerned, like you and was told that this can be normal. My cyst ended up being benign and I've had no problems since it was removed. :- ) Hope that puts your mind at rest and good luck.
Can these annovulatory periods cause the cysts that are forming on my ovaries. I'm really uncomfortable between the bleeding and the constant achiness on my right side. I had a sono done Friday the Radiologist said that the complex cyst that they have been following is no longer there(in March they though it could be an ovarian neoplasm). The Radiologist said that I have several other cysts on both ovaries.
I have spotting in between periods, and in January had a period of 10 days extra bleeding between periods. I've had constant nausea since Dec 29th and breast tenderness, left side only. My normal lower back pain has gotten more frequent and much more severe and now includes my left hip. I also have periodic pelvic pain/cramping without the period. It feels like I am going to start my period, though I am not due for it. .
I had 5 weeks of bleeding that started in April, 3 weeks clear and then over 2 weeks of heavy bleeding and spotting again. That's how I found out I have ovarian cyst, 3cm. left ovary in May. Started taking birth control pill (alleesee) in June so this is just fairly recent. I was in between heavy and moderate bleeding the last 2 periods but took Ibuprofen since I was hunched over in pain.
Hello, The average menstrual period lasts between four and five days and produces 60 to 250 ml of blood.Heavy bleeding during periods and increase in the number of days of bleeding is called menorrhagia.Going by your symptoms,you seem to have menorrhagia. Causes of menorrhagia are Hypothyroidism, pelvic inflammatory disease,endometrial proliferation or hyperplasia like ovarian tumor and polycystic ovarian disease, polyps(cervical or endometrial.
Hello, First of all it can be due to metrorrhagia which causes uterine bleeding at irregular intervals, particularly between the expected menstrual periods. Metrorrhagia can occur due to dysfunction uterine bleeding, hormonal imbalance, polyps, fibroids, endometriosis, infections of the cervix, vagina or endometrium, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian insufficiency, ovarian cysts or benign lesions of the female reproductive system.
PCOS on the other hand affects many parts of your body and symptoms vary from person to person. Multiple small ovarian cysts and enlarged ovaries is one symptom of PCOS, which I do not have. PCOS also comes with many other symptoms due to multiple hormone imbalances, such as irregular or no periods, infertility, acne, hair growth, obesity, insulin resistance.
Few other conditions causing spotting between periods are endometriosis, STDs, cervical, uterine or ovarian cancers and ovarian cysts. Any vaginal bleeding other than your periods should be evaluated. Consult your gynecologist for more details. You may need pregnancy test, pelvic scan and pap smear. Keep me posted. Best wishes and take care!
I was just diagnosed with a complex ovarian cyst on my right ovary as well as several cysts imbedded in my uterine wall. The doctor is sending me to a GYN oncologist - I am scared - what are the changes of cancer? The GYN Oncologist can't see me for 3 weeks. Can this wait three weeks? Also I just had a colonoscopy and they took several biopsys of supicious tissue I won't know the results of that until next week. I am a basket case. Any advice I could get would be so helpful.
I noticed that when I have these, I have bleeding between periods. Does anyone else experience this? I've had horrible periods in the past, but these ones are by far, the worst.
Its been about 1 year now and I have bloating (I look like Im 6 months pregnant), lower pelvic pain, spotting, painful urnination, constant urination, when I do get my period its all clots. Did this turn into something else? What's the difference between fibroids and ovarian cysts? how can you tell the difference? Please Help.
I think that this has been there for some time and causing me many problems with my periods and some abnormal bleeding which I could not get treated due to insurance complications. Since I have had many experiences with cysts I unfortunately feel like an old pro at this. I did have many rupture before I even discovered I had PCOS. This pain is much different than any other cyst that I have had and feels like someone is constantly pinching and pulling on my right side.

Brown I'm hoping you can answer a question for me regarding post menapausal bleeding. I'll give you a short history about myself. In 2005 I had bleeding in between my periods and had a D&C and results negative. In 2007 I believe while I was perimenapausal I had bleeding again but my periods were finished. Saw a new gynocologist and he did a hystescope(sp?
From the research I've seen, its a LOT to worry about and I think this should be removed and biopsied right away! My symptoms include (and are worsening each day) extreme indigestion, nausea (24/7) unexplained upper abdominal pain, lower back pain, pain and numbness in my thighs, lower abdominal pain, no menstruation (although a slight amount of vaginal bleeding). HELP!!!!
I have suspected endometriosis, uterine fibroid and large complex ovarian cysts. My period also goes for 7-8 days and I have a bit of bleeding days before my period is due. Sometimes I feel like I bleed more often than not!
Really, alot of what the last to poster are describing (Louise, Suz'Anne) makes me think of ovarian cysts. These are really common and can be quite painful. If you really want to find out for sure what is going on, a Pelvic Ultrasound is the test to get. Ovarian cysts can easily be missed even with a very thorough physical exam. You want your answer, get an ultrasound, if the ultrasound is "normal", let me know. Dr.
I am on the pill and had bleeding between my periods. I also occasionally had pain during intercourse, along with other symptoms. Then last week I had an emergency surgery to remove an ovarian cyst, fallopian tube, and an enlarged ovary from my right side. Do you have any other symptoms? Cysts could be a possibility.
also been having heavy periods and my consultant wants to fit a iud to reduce bleeding, but i have read this causes cysts too. can anyone advise me please???????
Would the US show a clear enough photo to differeciate between any of these? I, too had a tubal ligation and now I am more confused.
My doc told me to expect that the burnt tissue would come out, and may have bleeding and or spotting. I don't go for my follow-up until 6 weeks post-op. I am now three days post-op and feeling great. No bleeding, just cramping which is very manageable with the meds. I stay put on my heating pad, and hubby took time off of work to take care of the baby. What are your options now? I hope that you have some options.
Also, anything going on in there could cause an elevated level. Please remember that 99% of ovarian cysts are benign. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I've read that some people spot a little when they ovulate. There are other things that bleeding between periods can be a sign of. Maybe ovarian cysts (very common) or something like that since you are cramping. I would take a home pregnancy test (just to be sure) and call my doctor if this isn't the first time it's happened. Try going to webmd.com and typing in your symptoms. Good luck.
