Avatar m tn advice please for an 18 year-old with ovarian cysts and distressing acne 1. are the two problems related? 2. I took three month Metformine 50mgs/day for the cysts but yesterday's ultra showed right ovary 3.6 X 2.5 cms. Left, 3.2 x 2.1 both with multiple small cysts average 5mm in diameter. i.e. smaller cysts but more in number than the last test. Is it a fact that I won't get rid of the acne until the cysts are gone? 3.
Avatar f tn So I have looked up symptoms of ovarian cysts and one that caught my eye was weight gain. Has anyone ever gained weight because of cysts? I can not seem to lose any weight. I wonder if the cysts are causing this?

1356258 tn?1277667850 I had several ultrasounds before my gallbladder removal surgery last year, and they said that my ovaries looked normal (gyno always says they feel normal, too). So is it possible to have PCOS without ovarian cysts? Would they be visible on an ultrasound? Do the cysts come and go? Or from the ultrasound can I rule out PCOS and focus on other possibilities? I wonder if I have Cushing's syndrome, as I also have what I think is a buffalo hump and my face may be moon-shaped.
Avatar f tn Hi, so I have polycystic ovaries I think Ive had them for about 6 years now but chose to neglect its signs and symptoms (heavy & prolonged bleeding, no periods for months) because I didnt really know anything about it (I was 12) until about two years ago. Ive had ultrasounds, been on pills and metformin, had D&C. So, just this january, my ultrasound results turned normal (NO cysts on both ovaries), but I haven't had my period from January up til now.
Avatar n tn does anyone know if the ovarian cysts make infertility? I had a cyst in my ovarian and I used pills to make it go away.
9039460 tn?1401809405 Hii everyone, i am 21 years old, i`ve been married for 2 year(been together 4 years b4 that) and we are TTC. My period was always irregular, so i did and ultrasound when i was 17 and found out i have PCOS. I would miss my period for up 2 to 3 months but this time i missed it for 5 months, so i went for another ultrasound and i found out i have more 12 small follicular cysts in their periphery on both ovaries. My doctor prescribe METFORMIN (500mg) once per day.
Avatar f tn There was some talk a week or so ago about ovarian cysts and this certain medication doctors have prescribed for patients with the cysts.
Avatar f tn They told me ovarian cysts are nothing to worry about when it comes to IVF adn ICSI. In the meantime I had my annual with my regular OB they found my cyst was back again and worse than ever. They are now sending me for a CA125 blood test and have advised me to not move forward with any hormone treatments. What are the effects of taking hormones while having these cysts, and why would my Reproductive Specialist not tell me this?
Avatar f tn I take metformin for insulin resistance and ovarian cysts. My doctor started me on 500 mg, taken with dinner and with in the first few days I had loose bowels. That went away and as long as I stay on my high fiber low glycemic diet I have no problems. My doctor started me on a low dose so that my body could get use to it. I have heard blogs from other women that were put on a high dose from the very beginning and they had all kinds of problems.
Avatar n tn Did the PCOS and high triglycerides occur around the time you were diagnosed with Hashi? The reason I ask is that I developed ovarian cysts and high triglycerides the same time as my hypothyroid symptoms. After I was on Synthroid for several months (I'm thinking 6-8 or so), the cysts went away and triglycerides dropped to normal levels. I didn't receive treatment for either condition.
801413 tn?1333542876 Has anyone after starting metformin gone from irregular periods to none at all? I've been on metformin for almost a month (trying to regulate periods to get pregnant) and I'm on cd 81. Thinking of stopping it. While I am on metformin because of TTC there is no way I am pregnant cause I haven't had sex or anything close to it since December and have had multiple ultrasounds from January to March for cysts.
Avatar f tn here's me.. I'm 26 with pcos we have been ttc for 3.5 years. I had almost 100 cysts when I was originally diagnosed with pcos last year, then I had ovarian drilling in december 2009. At my post op appointment 6 weeks later I had 6 cysts left which dissolved in a few months. Here's my problem.. We are now on our fourth IUI with tamoxifen, follistim and HCG. Up until now I have only had follicles, no cysts.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Metformin for PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) basically because in 10 months of trying to get pregnant, we were having no luck because I was not ovulating! I am really encouraged by all of the positive weight loss results, but I am a bit worried about the side effects. My doctor said that they should get better in a week or two. Has anyone gotten pregnant using the Meformin? Or know anyone who has gotten regular periods? Thanks!
Avatar f tn HI, PCOS is basically is a hormonal derangement and ovarian cysts may not always be found. The most common immediate symptoms are anovulation, excess androgenic hormones, and insulin resistance. Metformin is an insulin sensitizing agent and will not lower testosterone levels. Other drugs are available that with their anti-androgen effects block the action of male hormones that are believed to contribute to acne and the growth of unwanted facial and body hair.

Avatar n tn 226 but my symptoms are as bad as ever and the mind fog is worse. I am also experiencing an increase in my ovarian my levels being in such a zig/zag have the effect of messing with my menstral cycle, spotting from ovulation til day 20, then heavy cycle days 20-28. and aggrivating my ovarian cysts?
Avatar f tn I was wondering if any women have had ovarian cyst in the past and been able to conceive or what the doctors do about it? I have been ttc but after having a lot of abdominal pain and pressure constantly they believe I have cyst, I go for an ultrasound this week to confirm but I am so worried about how this will affect ttc.
Avatar n tn I do have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome so I do have cysts and metformin actually helps quite a lot in keeping them well, well, well, under control. But cystic teratoma I don't know about. If it's similar then maybe something like Metformin (i.e. Fortamet, Glucophage) would help. All in all I would ask my OB/GYN to refer me to a fertility specialist and I would have him/her address these concerns about a possible infertility situation.
Avatar n tn Have you ever had a diagnosis of PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome? I used to get lots of cysts (also often on my right side) & my old OB-Gyn just treated that like it was unfortunate but normal. I switched doctors & was officially diagnosed w PCOS & my doctor started me on Metformin (its a diabetes medicine- no I am not diabetic)& the cysts have shrunk in size & some have gone away completely. I also have lost almost 50 lbs w/out trying. It really helped.
Avatar f tn ultrasounds they said it was polycistic ovarian syndrome but now another doctor is saying its just cysts on my ovaries which many women get. i have been trying to conceive for a year + a half now but still no luck. i would love to know how long it has taken others to get pregnant who have unfortunately had/have cysts on their ovaries. im currently 10days late for my period but a test says negative. please help i would really appreciate it!
Avatar f tn It's a laproscopic surgery where they cauterize your cysts. It's suppose to get rid of my cysts and help me ovulate. the downfall is that it is not permanent it only lasts a few years, my husband and I have been ttc for 3 years now so hopefully this helps.
Avatar n tn c on me 3 weeks ago, the day after surgery i began taking metformin 500mg, one a day, and soon I will start taking clomid 50mg. My question is, how long do you think it should take for me to acheive pregnancy?
