Ovarian cysts causes weight gain

Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts causes weight gain


Avatar f tn Have you been diagnosed with PCOS? This condition causes the acne, weight gain and cysts. It is important to follow up with your doctor to see if you have this condition. It may help you avoid future cysts if you get treatment now. Often, hormones can be out of balance without PCOS and it causes those same symptoms. Usually, birth control pills are recommended to try to get your hormones regulated in cases where your system is out of balance.
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?
183966 tn?1203910490 Yes cysts can cause you to have irregular or missed cycles. There are many other things that the cysts can cause. Weight Gain, hair growth, etc. I can, more than likely, answer any question about cystic ovaries.

Avatar f tn The only thing that changed in my life was the Synthroid and then the weight gain began. Why do the Doctors deny Synthroid is causing my weight gain?

Avatar f tn I do not want to continue taking birth control pills for a variety of reasons (hives, loss of sex drive, weight gain, and fatigue). However, I also don't want to risk loosing the left ovary is a large cyst develops again. Here is my thinking: since these last 2 cysts dissipated so easily by going on the pill, would it be wise to request sonograms to watch the ovary (maybe every 3 - 6 months). If a cyst develops, I can go back on the pill to alleviate the cysts (like it did this time).
Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.
Avatar n tn I'll be 46 at the end of this month & just moved to a new state so I don't have the luxury of knowing any doctors. In the last 1-2 months I suddenly gained 40 + lbs & look pregnant. That seems to be where the weight all is. A urinalysis proved negative for pregnancy on Monday & with my 3 grown kids I did not gain this much weight &/or so fast. I just look pregnant & feel "full - heavy - tired & short of breath" most of the time.
Avatar n tn Also I also was reading that having a bloated stomach and increased weight gain is a sign or symptom of Cancer. There are times when i step on the scale in the morning and i am 140 than i would step on it hrs later and I would be 150, how is that possible? and is that a sign? Maybe i am losing it here not sure.
Avatar n tn The higher of the dose works well for me. I have no side effects at all. I'm pretty amazed. No weight gain, no headaches, no depression. It does keep endometriosis at bay. They removed my left ovary, took my tubes and did an eblation. So I only take BC for hormones..ask your doc if you can try it. I was always sensitive...even to the point where I was severely depressed. Now I'm great! Good luck. It's all trial and error.
Avatar f tn the only serious problems ive had while being on the depo were continuous headaches, no periods @ all, ovarian cysts, and the weight gain. i tried getting off of the depo once but about 1 wk after my last scheduled appt i bleed for 4-5 days straight and went through 3 packs of pads. i would recommend to anyone who is thinking of getting off the shot to get on another form of BC like the pill or NuvaRing to reduce the risk of heavy bleeding.
454677 tn?1206691163 I have been diagnosed with hypothyroid within the last year, my grandma on my fathers side had it as well. I take 50mcg Synthroid. I was having the symptoms for about a year before anyone figured out why I was gaining so much weight quickly and felt so bad all the time.. I have gained a total of 80lbs and still going steady unfortunately...and I don't eat bad at all. I'm now up to 205lbs vs the 125lbs I was in April of 2007.
Avatar f tn Some other symptoms i have been experiencing are occasional left pelvic pain, chronic fatigue, urinary retention, bloating, excessive gas and gas pains, decreased appetite, easy to fill full, with really no weight issues besides not being able to lose or gain much weight. I am 5'6 and 161 lbs..which 2 weeks ago i weighed 158. I am set to schedule to have a pelvic ultrasound, bloodwork and urine test(not sure what tests their performing). Any thoughts or ideas on this?
Avatar n tn infections, endometriosis, pregnancy, benign ovarian cysts. Cancer is just about the last thing I worry about in your age group. However there are many benign conditions (as listed above) that can cause alot of suffering and can easily be treated.
Avatar f tn Even though it's small, everything I've learned about ovarian cysts says that they're normal in childbearing years but not after menopause. Plus, my mother's had ovarian cancer and it's familial. The gyn is more concerned about the endometrial lining because it's thicker than normal for a 60 year old post menopausal woman.
Avatar n tn I'm physically active and I work out a lot and my weight gain just seemed not the usual weight gain most people gain over the winter. I still stay very active even over the long winter months. I've never had any type of surgery and I had a text book pregnancy with our daughter so I am terrified!
Avatar n tn I have suffered with ovarian cysts for 20 years...I had several operations (laparoscopies) 2 remove cysts, scar tissue, leisons, endodometriosis etc....In 1995 1 hour after my baby boy was born, my uterus died..Don't remember the exact medical term but it happens in 1 in 2 million women, supposedly...Anyway they did an emergency hysterectomy and took everything but my ovaries....Because I was only 25...
Avatar f tn I have done research on the prescription, but have not been proven that it causes weight gain.

Avatar n tn Have they done a transvaginal ultrasound, to look for ovarian cysts? While a weight gain is not usually indicative of cancer, we usually lose weight. You need to discuss the problems you are having with your dr and get a really good blood work. Without knowing why your biological mother had her ovaries out, for sure it it hard to know if she had OVCA. Factors in your favor for it not being ca, are your age, taking birth control pills (suppression of eggs is a good thing).
1290747 tn?1281612328 I have looked all over the internet, and read so many books and i cannot find anything that states that weight causes ovulation to stop. I know that being overweight is a very bad thing and i have used this to help me start a lifestyle change. I have lost 8lbs in four weeks. I am very upset b/c to become a mother is the only thing i have EVER wanted. My husband and I had planned to start trying to concieve at the end of the year, which gives me time to straighten things out.
Avatar f tn Welcome. I agree with getting a 2nd opinion. Please try to remember that 99% of ovarian cysts, tumors, & masses are BENIGN!! You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Avatar n tn I had this problem last year, but only at the end of an EXTENDED amount of time (almost two years) of EXTREMELY heavy periods every 25 days. It turned out I had a huge fibroid. In the four months before I had it removed, I got the two periods a month thing, basically 'starting' every 11 days, and the periods being extremely heavy.
Avatar n tn hi, i have just had surgery to remove a large dermoid tumor (20cm) and my left ovary. my right ovary has poly-cystic ovarian syndrom which makes it very hard to lose weight. im 5"6 and i weigh 230lbs. my doc says that i need to lose weight to help with the PCOS but that its so hard cos PCOS makes u put on weight! anyway i was wondering if anybody has gone through this or even if anybody has some weight-loss advice, i would really appriciate it.
Avatar f tn I don't know about anyone else, but I have had such a difficult time trying to find the right birth control pill. I need one that doesn't make me tired,cause weight gain, or acne. It seems like every pill I try-either it helps my acne and makes me hungry and sooooo...... tired. I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite.
Avatar m tn Causes of secondary amenorrhea include stress and anxiety, malnutrition, depression, overexercising, sudden weight loss or gain (obesity),thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalance due to polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS).Smoking is also associated with secondary amenorrhea. Sometimes tumors of the ovaries and brain may also cause absence of menstruation. Some of these causes are modifiable like if you are having stress then yoga and meditation and antianxiety medicines can help you out.
Avatar n tn but meds affect people in all different ways I just started taking it for pcos and insulin resistance has only been a couple days so far so Ill let you all know,but pcos cause weight gain and the insulin resistance causes the pcos so the insulin resistance is treated first with metformin which should help with the weight loss because you need to loose weight in order for the pcos to get better and the resistance problem goes away......................
Avatar n tn When my Psychatrist decided to try me on Topamax it was because of my anieity over my weight gain with the standard mood stabilizers. Within these past two years I have lost 38 pounds taking this medicine. I will say that I have done low- carb about 8 of those months but ashamed to say no exercise.I have suffered with migrane headaches for about 10 years - they are gone . I think i have had one mild one .
