Any bee’s have them?
I’ve suffered with them since stopping birthcontrol about 4 years ago. I typically would get them right after ovulating. ..always on my right ovary.
When I got pregnant with my DD, it didn’t interfere at all with trying to get pregnant. I had complications during pregnancy, that may or may not have been from the cysts. I found out through ultrasound that even while I was 3 months pregnant, I still had a cyst on that ovary (which is not common, from my understanding).
I didn’t think it was that big of a deal, but the last two months they’ve come back again and are worse than ever. I’m getting them before I ovulate now. I went for an unrelated checkup with my OB and she actually noticed that my right ovary was very inlarged while she did an internal exam.
Have any bees had luck with any way to treat them? they’re painful …excruciating when they burst..and I am concerned that when we TTC #2 in a couple years, that it may cause problems.
I’m hoping I don’t have to worry..but I’ve read about cysts getting big enough to twist the ovary and need to be removed and whatnot..it’s kinda unsettling.

I was first diagnosed with a complex ovarian cyst last year. It was mostly solid though and has gotten bigger. I’m going through the process of possibly dealing with a malignant tumor. All very painful and frustrating.
Do yours hurt when you have sex like mine?

I’ve been suffering from weird pains for 9 months..and stupid doctor wasn’t able to diagnose anything…finally I went to the other doctor and he told me that I have ovarian cysts…anyways, he checked my hormones and told me that tests came out perfects….so I don’t have to do anything about my cysts…but do ultrasounds every 4 months to control the situation…now I don’t know what to do…I don’t know if they can affect my future pregnancies…or create any other medical complications..

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon: Mine has just started causing sex-related pain. Thats why I went to see my OB. Had no idea it was cyst-related 🙁
@SashaUSARu: As far as I know my hormones are normal as well. The only thing I know of that will help cysts is hormonal birthcontrol, which I cannot take. So I am at a loss as to whether or not there are any alternative treatments.
I never had any issue at all getting pregnant with my daughter..but I worry that since they are getting worse that I may have issues conceivng again in the future.
