When I was 21, the doctor first found cysts. I was put on birth control because I wasn’t planning on having kids at that time. When I was 25 and still having this problem, my family doctor sent me to an OB, who in my opinion, was rude and not very helpful. She basically said I would just have to suck it up. I’m now 27 and just came back from my 2nd ultrasound in 2 months and still have them. Anyone have this problem and have advise on what I should do?

I agree, find a new OB that you mesh well with.

It really depends on what type of cysts they are.
When I went off birthcontrol, we discovered that I had (luteum) ovarian cysts that would form after ovulation every month. Birthcontrol typically supresses these cysts (since you’re not ovulating), and is the only method of treatment, unfortunately.
Basically when I get them, they feel like soreness on one side of my abdomen. Occasionally they burst and it is incredibly painful and awful 🙁
They in no way effected my ability to have kids (I got pregnant NTNP with my DD, and on the first try with this pregnancy).
Unfortuntately there is very little you can do if these are the types of cysts you have. I have tried to figure out alternative treatments but have found nothing that works. I suspect being on birthcontrol for so many years (7 straight) is what caused this problem to begin with. I refuse to go back on birthcontrol.
I’m sorry you’re experiencing this. they’re awful!

Doctor’s office just called and the cysts appear larger so they are sending me to a ob-gyn. I’m just hoping it’s not the same one that I had issues with. The last one decided to put in her 2 cents about financials when I spoke about my now husband and I talking about kids and she basically told me I had to suck it up.

Well, had my doctor appointment with the OB-GYN this morning and she suspects PCOS. As much as I didn’t want to, we are going to test out birth control pills for a few months and in September, I have to go back in for another ultrasound.
