ovarian-cysts

I am suffering from the same exact symptoms Ive even had to go to the ER twice for pain relievers that did not work! Ive been diagnosed with ovarian cysts on my right side. Dull stomach pains and severe lower back pain, and pain down thighs. This also has made me very stressed out causing insomnia. Also my mother had this when she was my age as well and she said it stopped after a while. To make you feel any better I did read that 90% of women will go through this in their lifetime.
I feel like I'm 60 years old at times because I can't walk or stand up straight. Do you think that with the IUD still in, its putting pressure on the cyst causing the pain to get worse again? I'm making an appointment soon with a different doctor since mine doesn't seem to listen to me.
My gynea removed the Mirena IUD coil as it was suspected that it was the cause off the cysts. My file at the gynea is filled with reported cases of ovarian cysts, all on the right ovary - the gynea counted 7 in total from 2009 till November 2011 - and those were only the cases that were reported to her. I remember 3 other cases since 2009 where I had cysts that ruptured (by now I know the pain) while I was at home. My question is - what can be done to fix this?
Many women continue to get subsequent cysts. Some will get a couple and then it stops while others keep on going like you. If your issue is only with the one ovary keep in mind that losing it will not affect your fertility - your other side will pick up the slack. After this next surgery I would still encourage you to do the birth control, it could be that your body needs a little more time on the hormones before you stop ovulating.
Had abdominal CT scan in August (to check liver) and was told that I have fatty liver and ovarian cysts (minor notation on report). Side pain has gotten worse and enzymes still elevated. Had second abdominal CT scan to get a better look at liver and pancreas. Was told everything looked okay (still have fatty liver) but the ovarian cysts have grown.
Could it be the IUD causes the enlarged ovary and cyst on the ovary. I'm scared to think its that..I got prego on birth control. And the IUD has stopped that. I dont want to get prego again. I need to know if I could get the IUD back after all this is going on or is it to risky? I know I asked a lot of questions, and some may seem a lil stupid. But I know nothing about this. I also want to know what will they do about the enlarged ovary? Will I have to have surgery?
Mirena was more hormones, worse periods etc. paraguard gave me ovarian cysts I had reactions to the copper it started to embed in my uterus .
I've had laparoscopy recently and that's because the cysts twisting the ovary. I had terrible pain on my back and stomach only the day before and headed to ER because I couldn't hold the pain anymore. After the surgery the docs find out that my IUD somehow skip its place and pierced my left ovary along with its fallopian which caused serious internal bleeding while the cyst was in my right ovary. So I think if it's getting unbearable, I will suggest to go to ER right away.
Cysts CAN actually stop periods completely, and some of ur symptoms can be caused by having cysts. However, ALL ur sypmtoms r related to pregnancy! I would say u were pregnant! But Im not a doctor, just a mum of 2 who has ovarian cysts! If u want a more informed decision I suggest posting ur question on the "PCOS - polycystic ovarian syndrome" there r lots of women who have had cysts for a lot longer than me and they give great advice.
While I was about 6 months pregnant, around August of 2010, I recieved a letter from my OBGYN stating that I was HPV positive, and that I showed abnormal cells. I scheduled another exam, where the doctor confirmed abnormal cells but she couldn't get a "good enough picture" of what we were looking at. At my 6 weeks check-up after my son was born, I asked the doctor when we would be able to complete another exam to determine what was wrong.
whoa! That much drama? Now, :S I'm scared! I am supposed to be getting one implanted in. I heard it only bleeds for two months then you get ur life back to normal I never knew it was that much pain afterwards....
i have had constant yeast and bacterial infections since i have been on the shot. Now i am on the IUD, and they both use the same hormones. this is just great (sarcastically speaking) to hear all of this about the IUD as well. i was really hoping after MANY (too many to count) years of dealing with the constant infections that my problems are not going to go away.
I saw this posted on a website about side effects of IUDs: The Mirena IUD can cause ovarian cysts. Some women using the Mirena stop bleeding altogether. Usually their menstrual periods return when the IUD is removed. Mirena can cause weight gain, headaches, increased blood pressure, acne, depression, and decrease in sex drive. Also, I have repeatedly seen information that states if you have a strange fluid or odor coming from you vagina, you should get in touch with your health care provider.
Most cysts, over 95 percent are benign. Cysts come and go depending on where you are in your cycle. While you don't get your period, you still ovulate. The doctor will probably want to repeat the test to see if there is any changes.
turns out I had tons of cysts on both ovaries! Stayed a week in the hosp on an iv to shrink the cysts.. thnx to mirena.. I had it removed the day I left the hosp.. wish I never would've gotten it... BUT I kinda see it as a blessing in disguise.. I already have 3 lil boys... and always wanted a girl... 10 months after getting it removed I found out I was pregnant! And its a girl! I'm now 27 weeks :} good luk to u!
I recently had the merina IUD put in and they think this is what caused it so they took out the IUD and and put me on low hormone birth control pills to shrink it. They told me about how it could twist my ovary and i would lose it so i have been taking it really really really easy because im not sure what losing an ovary will do to my chances of having children later. last night i was having pains in my lower side of my back so i went back today and they found out that it is now at 5cm by 4.
I got the IUD on 3/21/06 and loved it ! Insertion was painful but not terrible. I loved not having to worry about pills, patches, condoms whatever. Well about 1 month after getting it I developed acne. It wasnt terrible but I never had acne before. I figured it was from the hormone in the IUD. I could deal with that. In mid - July I developed a yeast infection that would not go away.
I definitely do not worry about cancer based on pain and IUD use at your age. Most ovarian cysts are related to ovulation. An IUD will not stop ovulation, it just reduces the ability of your uterine lining from holding a pregnancy.
The hip thing is chronic I have dealt with it since I was 11 yrs old. The cyst is on the left and all of my hip pain is on the right. The MRI didn't really say what kind of cyst it is. Here is what it said: Frequent 6 cm leftt adnexal cyst. Follow up pelvic sonogram is suggested in 2-3 menstrual cycles to confirm resolution. Blooming artifact within the lower uterine segment which may represent a calcified fibroid, or postsurgical change. IUD is much less likely.
It all started about four years ago when I had my second child, after I had him my friend told me about this new birth control called the mirena IUD, now I have had an IUD before, it was the paraguard but it was horrible I bleed for 4 months straight, and was in alot of pain, so when I heard that this birth control was the complete opposite I was very happy, I mean what woman wouldnt be?
I have had multiple ovarian cysts rupture, chronical ovarian/pelvic pain, several small fibroids. I have had an endometrial BX and D&C, negative. Never had laproscopy (GYN is suggesting it to rule out endometriosis). Contraception is NOT may main concern! Controling my painful heavy periods is the main issue while not giving me horrible migraines and HTN. My GYN is suggesting a hysterectomy at some point but until then a Merina IUD. The forums I read about this product scare me!
Isn't it strange how differently these little alien (cysts) affect each of us. I have two 5-6cm complex cysts one on each ovary. They are suspected endometrioma's. While I'm aware of them, they aren't all that painful.
Hi, Don't apologise you are not rambling, we are all going through a hard, frustrating and painful time. Polycystic Kidneys sounds very painful, and ovarian cysts on top of that sounds even worse. I hope that you find a Doctor that listens. I don't understand how some Doctors think that they can just make a diagnosis within a minute and especially without looking at your previous test results, its shocking. I hope that you find decent specialists in at the clinic in Florida.
hi im going into hospital next thursday to have another cyst removed and my left ovary and fallopian tube. this is the 3rd procedure because of cysts. so really nervous and scared. 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???????
If your daughter has a regular period, best to have the study performed shortly after the onset of her menses. Lastly, ovarian cysts on occasion may bleed into themselves, rupture, or cause the ovary to torse (or twist). Your daughter should be wary of any sudden onset abdominal pain and/or nausea. If this were to happen she should seek medical attention immediately. I hope this is helpful. Best regards, Dr.
The doctor did a biopsy to see if I have cancer. I have unusual cysts on my ovaries (seen by an ultrasound) and feel like my entire abdominal area is swollen. I have horrible cramps and spend a lot of time off of my feet just to help with the pain. My doctor prescribed 800 mg. of ibuprofen and prover progesterone to help stop the bleeding. I am sooooo certain this is related to the mirena. I can't believe I didn't know all the side effects were occurring with women that had the device.
About 2 years ago i was having lots of pain, on a every other month basis, after many wrong diagnosis we discoverd via ultrasound that i had a 5cm ovarian cyst. I had a IUD (Mirena) removed in march 2010 and the pain stopped... my husband and i decided to have another child and tried for 9 months to get pregnant. At this point am about 20 weeks pregnant, and the cyst has gone from 5cm to 5.5cmX7.6cm. Its growing on a weekly basis, and im in a horrible amount of daily pain.
I took the mini pill while breastfeeding my first son and it didn't work well for me. I had my period every two weeks on it and got two ovarian cysts in 6 months which means I ovulated at least twice while on it. I got the depo shot after my second child and it worked great for me but I have heard horror stories about it.
approach especially since most ovarian cysts go away on their own. Let us know how your appointment goes.
