I am 40 years old and was recently diagnosed with an ovarian cyst. I wanted to know if anyone has the same symptoms that I have.
I went to the doctor in March because I had not had a period for 3 months.
She ordered an ultrasound and found a 4cm cyst on my right ovary and prescribed a 10-day supply of Prometrium to jump start my period and wanted to do a follow-up ultrasound in 3 months.
I did have a period at the end of March that lasted aprox. 7 days.
Then I did not have another period until mid June which has still not stopped and I am on day 15. The period has not been normal for.... a lot of light and then heavy flow, and a lot of clots. Also, quite a bit of bright red blood.
I had my follow-up ultrasound on Friday and the technician said that she could still see "a little something".
I have my follow up appointment with my doctor on Thursday to discuss.
The symptoms that I have had are:
Pain (mostly dull, sometime sharp) on the right side and ocassionally on the left side
Tiredness (some times extreme fatigue)
I also mid year last year started having high blood pressure that I am not sure if it is related. I stopped taking birth control pills at that time.
Also, I have had some blood work where my FSH was very low.
Anyone have a similar situation?
