I have had Skyla IUD for about 6 months now. My experience up until now has been very positive. In May I started to feel some dull aching on my right side. I passed it off that i was ovulating. Each month the ache continued to grow. Yesterday i went to my OBGYN and she did an ultrasound right there in the office. IUD placement was perfect. However, I showed multiple PCOS like cysts on my ovary. Probably around 10. The doc’s first conclusion is that i may have PCOS. She drew my blood and is running it to check.
Has anyone here had a situation like this with a hormonal IUD? I guess I am skeptical that it is PCOS because i had an ultrasound 2 years ago with a different gyno and she said i had one large cyst (which cleared on its own) and did not mention anything to me about having PCOS. Im wondering now if the IUD is causing me to form these cysts. I should also mention that i keep gaining and retaining weight. Diet and moderate exercise have not helped so far (def not pregnant had my period two weeks ago). If anyone you can provide insight it would be greatly appreciated!!!
