On 2/21/06 I had a sonogram they saw a 3.8cm cyst on my right ovary. Right ovary enlarge 6X4.4cm they called it a simple ovarian cyst. However, I"ve been having alot of stomach pains,pelvic pain,lower back pain,waist pain and constipation.I saw a GI doctor and found I had acid reflix. On 4/3/06 they repeated the sonogram the cyst was still 3.8cm. The sonogram report said it could be evaluated further. Both times I had the exams done the pelvic sono saw the cyst but the transvaginal sono couldn't identified the right ovary.The report also said other findings are stable. I've decided to have the cyst removed I don't know if thats the right thing to do or should I have waited a few months to see if the cyst goes away on it's own? I still don't understand why I got a cyst. I've heard that the birth control pill prevent cyst and I've been on birth control pills most of my life. I'm 37 and I've been feeling like **** for a couple of months.
I understand and share your frustration. I've been on birth control consistently for 6 years since the birth of my son, yet I've had 4 'simple' cysts in the last 7 months with one that will not resolve. Your decision to have the cyst removed is certainly understandable. They can cause alot of pain and make you feel pretty lously. What does your doctor say about the reason for the cyst developing while on birth control?
The Doctor himself didn't understand why I got the cyst. Are you having your cyst removed? Did your Doctor give you an explaination why you got those cyst while on birth control pills? Are you also feeling sick?
