For the past few months I have been getting a pain in my right side, and it travels to my back. I feel pressure when I pee, almost like something is pulling on where the pain is. It’s not a ‘horrible’ pain, just more uncomfortable than anything. Sometimes it keeps me up at night. Last night sex (I’m sorry, TMI) was so uncomfortable we had to stop, and this never happens…although in the past months is has become more and more uncomfortable until last night when I really couldn’t take it. I also have been queesy when I wake up and throughout the day, which I read was also a sign. I just feel like throwing up a lot.
I called my obgyn today and I go in Tuesday morning. Something tells me it is a cyst on my ovary. I dont know why…I just have been having a feeling that it is. When I go in Tuesday, if they think it is a cyst…what is going to happen? I’m someone that is not afraid of pain, but I do not handle tests well…I get really sick to my stomach. I have read that they can do an internal ultrasound and that they might take fluid from a cyst to see if it is cancer. This freaks me out so much. Do they put you to sleep to take the fluid?
Damn the GOOGLE. I am all worked up now. Any bees with cysts out there? Can you tell me how the cyst was diagnosed and what happened after? I am so nervous now. AND I keep seeing information about how it will be harder to get pregnant if I have a cyst. Help! I have completely wigged myself out.

@soyjoy222: It could be possibly be a ovarian cyst, gall or bladder /kidney stones especially if you say that it hurts when you urinate and the pain travels to your back.
My suggestion: Drink 8 ounces of water every 30 minutes until your pee comes out clear keep doing this
I have been diagnosed with ovarian cysts the size of big boulder marble the ER personnel said it would go away by itself, intercourse is painful and uncomfortable it seems like my husband is hitting a wall and it hurts instead of enjoying it.
Mexican tradition in case it is bladder/gall/kidney stones it to take pineapple (not the canned ones) and cut it up and eat it all it might take you severals hours but ensure you eat it for 1 day this is suppose to make stones pass quicker.
Make sure you don’t miss your Tuesday appointment, if the pain is jirating you have to go to ER it could be a urinary infection that has gone to your kidneys like mine did it was to late my kidneys were damaged for waiting

I just got diagnosed with a cyst and possibly endometriosis and I had the exact same symptoms as you. Only one of my cysts burst and it was the most horrbile pain ever. With me they did a few ultrasounds (nothing too freaky) and then I just went over my results with my GP. I have to book an appointment to see a Gyno but it’s not scary. I’ve read that almost all women will have a cyst at some point in their lives. They either go away by themselves or burst or it’s a symple surgery to remove them.
Also, try not to stress too badly over the pregnancy thing. I was in tears over it but really there’s only a slighter less chance if the cyst is REALLY bad and I know a tonne of people who’ve had or have cysts and endometriosis and have had kids.
I hope it all goes well. xx

I agree that it might be a cyst or kidney stones. Try not to worry too much, you probably won’t have problems getting pregnant as long as it isn’t a huge cyst that takes over your entire side and bursts or something.
It’s also possibly endometriosis though the problems when peeing don’t really match that.

Sounds like it could be a UTI that may have turned into a kidney infection. If the pain is in your back that is usually kidney. I have ovarian cysts and I have also had kidney stones and it doesn’t seem like the symptoms I had from either of those. Kidney stones, for me, was the worst pain of my life. It happened suddenly while I was asleep and it felt like someone was stabbing me in the back. FI had to rush me to the emergency room that’s how bad it was. I have had many people tell me that kidney stones are comparable to child birth with the pain. Cysts were also sudden and sharp (for me anyways).
Good luck! And stop googling it! It will only make you paranoid. 🙂

@Leesh: About a month ago, I woke up in the night with horrible back/pelvic pain. I wonder if it was a stone…I thought I had hurt myself working out so I didn’t say or do anything, and after a few days of aching, it went away. It felt like someone was stabbing me, but I was afraid to do anything!
I’ve been hearing from many people it could be a cyst, UTI or stones. I’m hoping it is stones, not a cyst!! Thanks everyone for your responses, I feel better now…it doesn’t sound like it’s a complicated thing to have fixed. I should be just fine!
