I am 28 year old female.Today is my 20th day of menstruation cycle.But I have severe pain in my abdomen(even pain during intercorse,defecation & urination) so I do a ultrasound & it says-
Uterus-The uterus is normal in size measuring 68*26*45 mm.Its anteverted in position.Mayometrium shows uniform echotexture.Endometrial echo is central & thickness is within normal limit measuring 5.9mm.No focal lesion is noted.
Adnexae-Septated cysts with internal echo are seen in both adnexal region.Right one measures 52*53 mm & left one measures 36*26 mm.
Spleen-mildly enlarged in size 123 mm.
I am trying for pregnancy for 3 months & I am on ovulation inducer & allylestrenol medications.I am also taking pain relifing medicines but it seem that it doesn't work.I am not good in English so for any mistakes I beg your pardon.
it is very common to get ovarian cysts with the use of fertility drugs.
sometimes the drugs can make the ovaries very big. This is called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
the treatment is rest and hydration. over a few weeks, the ovbaries go back to normal size.
it is important that you get repeat ultrasounds to check on th eovaries.
over the decades, the question of whether fertility drugs are a factor in the development of ovarian cancer. in general, the opinion is that ovulation inducing drugs do NOT cause ovarian cancer.
Currently available data in the literature suggest that an association between ovulation induction and ovarian cancer does not indicate necessarily a causal effect. Infertility alone is an independent risk factor for the development of ovarian cancer. Nulliparous women with refractory infertility may harbor a particularly high risk of ovarian cancer, irrespective of their use of fertility drugs. Furthermore, the apparent association between fertility drug use and ovarian cancer may arise because these women are the most likely to have used ovulation-stimulating agents as part of their infertility treatment. Close clinical surveillance of patients before, during, and after treatment of infertility is warranted.
