Ovarian cysts pain during pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts pain during pregnancy


Avatar n tn Normally, for non-cancerous type I think they don't grow during pregnancy or breastfeed. My cysts didn't grow at all during my pregnancy and breastfeeding. I had a beautyful & healthy baby. Also, if you plan to have a C-section, remember to ask your doctor remove it...I didn't ask (i had a emergency c-section).
1148191 tn?1271821246 I went to the doctors and come to find out I have a cyst on my ovary, my question is I still think I might be pregnant, just how common are ovarian cysts in early pregnancy and is it possible that if I'm having pregnancy symptoms that I could still be pregnant. And can ovarian cysts cause a missed period making me think that I am pregnant? I don't normally have any PMS symptoms except cramping the day of my period.
8987249 tn?1404777697 They aren't really causing any pain (maybe just a little cramping) but can they be dangerous during pregnancy? Should I have them removed? I'm waiting for my doctor to call me back. Thanks for your help and insight!
177465 tn?1288242063 They really don't start worrying about cysts till they are bigger than 6cm. Cysts are normal during pregnancy, one is called a Corpus Litum (sp) and it helps to maintain a pregnancy. So take it easy and try to not worry. They have a very small window to surgically remove a cyst, 13 to 16 weeks, which is the safest time for the baby and mother. Take care, and you are in my thoughts and prayers for a healthy and safe pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Any mom's have experiences with ovarian cysts during pregnancy? I haven't been diagnosed with an ultrasound yet but with my signs and symptoms I'm pretty sure I have one. I get stabbing pain in the same spot, near my right ovary a few times each day with certain movements and activities. 5 weeks tomorrow but I had the pain long before I was pregnant. From what I read they're fairly normal and insignificant?
Avatar f tn Due to an irregular cycle my doctor sent me along for a dating scan yesterday. During the scan they found two cysts on my right ovary measuring around 5cm... she didnt seem too worried but my doctor has since called to ask me to come and see her regarding the scans.. I do get a bit of occasional pain on my right hand side from time to time but nothing too serious. Just wondering if anyone else has had cysts during their pregnancy and what it meant for you? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Hi, I,m also from the uk my neice had ovarian cysts during pregnancy and they were very large , she had a laparoscopy where they drain the cyst and she was home the next day everything went just fine . You may have the type that go away on their own but if they get to be a problem causing pain or making you wee a lot by pressing on your bladder then you should go back to ob gyn and ask them to be removed .
Avatar n tn Can you get ovarian cysts anytime during a pg??? I am having stabbing pains on my left pelvic area that cramps into in my upper thigh and groin. Could this be what that is?? If so could it cause m/c??? I am 17 weeks and I cannot lose a baby this far along. Please help if possible. Chloe congrats on a possible boy. They said the same thing to me so maybe we will have boys together. I want to wish you all a SAFE & HAPPY EASTER also!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn Bladder infections are not uncommon, and cysts are also a common cause of pain during intercourse. If the pain persists after your infection has been treated, go back to your doctor or seek out another opinion if you feel your doctor isn't being helpful. Sometimes the cause of pain during sex is difficult to discern.
362408 tn?1236444681 Oh i do hope i can even though i will worry that the cysts may effect the pregnancy! Do you know ive been responding to someones question they go under the name smurf and its a hoax as they have registered as male im furious that there are timewasters on here again and i have just wasted my time responding to there question thinking that it was genuine even though i was a tad concerned it wasnt 100% genuine when i had read it but i still took my time to respond! Got im mad now!!!!............
Avatar n tn I hear that ovarian cysts have the same symptoms as pregnancy. Anyone have experience with them and can tell the difference?
Avatar f tn I had an emergency scan around 6 weeks into this pregnancy due to pain on my right side. My GP feared an ectopic pregnancy. To my relief baby was fine. However, an 8cm side was found on my right ovary with a daughter cyst inside. The staff at the early pregnancy unit didn’t seem concerned at first. They said cysts are normally just pushed out of the way by the growing baby. I was referred to a consultant 4 weeks after. The laidback attitude changed when I saw the consultant.
Avatar f tn I missed my period for the first time ever in February, other than during pregnancy; for the past few months I have had unexplained lower back pain and my internist referred me to a spinal specialist.
Avatar f tn I have experiencee the extreme pain 4 times, and it was all during my pregnancy. The pain is in my left groin, and it constantly aches. From then on i was not able to sleep on my right side. Once my son was born the pain attacks stopped, and left me with just the aching constantly. I still refuse to sleep on my right side incase the pain happens again.
Avatar n tn The only difference between my pain currently and previous cysts is that this pain can be comforted with different positions but my cyst was a constant pain. Just wondering!
Avatar m tn I know there have been quite a few other women that have come through here who have had cysts successfully removed during their pregnancy. I can't imagine how hard this must be for you now. Good luck and I hope all goes well.
757181 tn?1234254959 I know that cysts on your ovaries are very common, and come and go, especially during pregnancy. With my first pregnancy, during a vaginal u/s a cyst was detected on my left ovary. My doctor said it is where my egg was released, and it would disappear as the pregnancy progressed. Which it did. I am currently 15 wks 3days pregnant and again, I was told I have a cyst, this time on my right ovary. So, I think unless your doctor shows concern, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
Avatar f tn ive got a question about cysts actually! i know the doctor needs to tell you you have cysts but do you get any symptoms prior to this?
Avatar n tn why do you have pain? If you have pain for another reason (such as round ligament pain which will improve as the pregnancy continues, or a bladder infection, or a bowel problem), then it is reasonable to leave the cyst alone. On the otehr hand, if the pain is clearly from this ovarian cyst and it is not getting better, that is a reason to remove it. In general we like to wait until the second trimester of pregnancy ( more than 12 weeks) to do surgery in pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I went to the er cuz i was having pain and i though it was an ectopic but it was just cysts !! Have u had an ultra to make sure baby is in the righ place or if u have the cysts ? The doc in the er said they should clear as pregnancy go along .. But i still feel pain sometimes in my ovaries !!
Avatar f tn Hi - I had a baby on 1/31 and during the entire pregnancy I had a 6mm "para-ovarian" cyst on my right side. I had an US in March that showed the 6mm cyst was still there, but I also had a new small one on the left. Now my US from July shows that the right ovarian cyst is smaller (3cm) with "low level internal echoes and septations.
Avatar n tn My doc found a large ovarian cysts on one of myt ovaries during the ultrasound last week. They said it was normal to have ovarian cysts during pregnancy qand that it will cure itself as the pregnancy progresses. The thing is this: it's sometimes painful (she said it would be) and during sex it feels like he is hitting it or something. It hurts really bad then... Does anyone know about ovarian cysts and sex?
167426 tn?1254089835 The cells in the ovary are able to make hair, teeth, and other growing tissues that become part of a forming ovarian cyst. These cysts can become large and cause pain. Polycystic ovaries: This condition occurs when the eggs mature within the follicles, or sacs, but the sac does not break open to release the egg. The cycle repeats, follicles continue to grow inside the ovary, and cysts form. Incidence Functional ovarian cysts usually occur during the childbearing years.
Avatar n tn 5-7 pounds in the last few months and I can't stand how bloated my stomach is by the end of the day. I am having ovary pain on both sides, constant headachs, pelvic pain during BM's and I am incredibly constipated and hungry ALL the time. I am a runner and I teach pilates three hours a week. I love to workout but I don't have any energy lately. Is anyone else with ovarian cycts, feeling these same symptoms? Is this normal? Are these symptoms grounds to request surgical removal?
