My doctor informed me that I have a complex, physiologic ovarian cyst (about 3.5 cm) back in June. Is that possible? I thought that a physiologic (functional) cyst was by definition, simple. Any thoughts? My doctor went on vacation for six weeks and I'm trying not to worry during this "wait and see" period.
Also, does anybody's cyst ever go away during the "wait and see" period? It doesn't seem like it from all the posts I've read. Has anyone experienced a complex cyst that resolves on its own?
a complex cyst can be a functional cyst that has a little blood in it making it appear "complex" ... it still can be a functional cyst though i am not sure how he made that deterination in the absence of other tests ... it appears to me he is not worried since it is less than 5 cm
did he put u on b/c ??
this looks like a good question for the ask an expert forum or u may want to seek a second opinion in the interim
My daughter has been trying to conceive and having trouble. Her periods seemed worse than normal, etc. so she went in to be checked. That's when they saw the cyst on a TVUS. The follow up TVUS showed it had burst and there was some fluid in the area. It took a couple weeks for her to feel better but we have no idea how long the thing had been there. Maybe not long at all.
