I have been diagnosed with endo for the first time. I have two masses on my right ovary (one 5 centimetres and one 3.4 centimetres). I had no idea anything was wrong until I had severe pain about a month ago. However, I am not very worried about fertility. With endometriomas of this size, is it likely that I am at an advanced stage? How high is the risk of having to lose my ovary? Also, my first gyn appointment is over a month away, which seems much too long to wait. Is this a normal kind of delay?
If the ovarian masses are endometriotic cysts, then there is good chance that they will have to be removed. Whether ovary can be conserved can only be decided at the time of operation. Consult your gynaecologist.
Hope this helps.
