I don’t get the dull ache, I get the ‘there is an evil little fairie kicking me very hard with her tiny little stiletto’ pain.  She’s a b*tch and it usually happens when I ovulate.  I haven’t gone to the doctor for it (I have my annual at Nov and I can live with it until then) but it might be endo too.  Definitely a Q for your doctor.

I’ve had my share of ovarian cysts over the years; what you described is exactly what I felt as well. It started out as a dull pain and then became completely unbearable. The doctors said it was one of the biggest cysts they had ever seen. Nothing helped the pain. For the next few years, every couple months, I would feel the same dull pain that I originally did with my first cyst. I assume all of them were cysts that just weren’t nearly the size as my first, which made them less painful. I haven’t had any since I’ve been on birth control though.

@Amsy28:  Oh and I just forgot.  My best friend has an ovarian cyst a couple of years prior and she just had a beautiful baby girl.  She had to take some diabetic-based medication to help her conceive but it wasn’t due to her ovaries I don’t think.  Endometriosis.  My mom had it and I was concieved.  It’s possible!

I’ve had quite a few ovarian cysts. Mine feel like a slight tug or pull in either the right or left side of my lower abdomen, usually the right. I’ve been sent in for ultrasounds and all the bells and whistles. Some Dr’s just can feel mine from an outside examination of the lower abdomen. My stepmother has brought up fertility issues, but my Dr’s have never mentioned it. I guess I know it’s a possibility, however, I don’t want to deal with it until that time comes.

Anyhow, I understand your worries. I get them a couple times a year and my Dr’s have said not to worry thus far. Some women are just more prone to them. 🙂

Yes, I had endometrosis. I had one the size of a grapefruit on my right ovary removed surgically 12 years ago. From what I understand, frequent cysts, polycystic ovarian disease, and endometriosis are likely caused by an over production of estrogen. I am no doctor but have read many articles about estrogen dominance with these issues. I have a few suggestions. I would suggest discussing a progesterone/estrogen BCP with your doctor if you’re not ready to conceive. Research DHEA but dont take it with the BCP. It wouldn’t hurt to increase your cardiovascular exercise. Not only can you reduce body fat by doing this but it will make your periods and pms symptoms far less troublesome each month. I’d consider staying away from milk and go organic with your diet. Unfortunately, our milk and meat are pumped full of unnecessary hormones. Many women with cysts, endo and PCOS easily conceive while others may have challenges, i think it varies. Just some suggestions of things that have helped me tremendously, hope you get well soon.

Oh my gosh, I used to get ovarian cysts so often! That’s partially why I started birth control. And actually, the pain was SO bad I went to the Dr when I was 15 just for him to tell me I was having cramps (he was wrong — we later found out it was cysts). This experience was embarrassing enough for me that I waited to go to the Dr when my appendix ruptured. I had convinced myself it was a cyst. Now that could have ended badly!

They’re quite normal. I had one that hurt so bad when it ruptured that I went to the ER! The pain was near my appendix and I was convinced I had appendicits. A 3 hour visit, IV morphine and a vicodin prescription later and I felt fine. Big ones aren’t super common, but everyone gets them in some way it seems like. I wouldn’t worry about it unless it’s a regular occurance for you. 

@Toonski: Haha, I just noticed that we have exactly opposite stories! Weird.

I have had this happen actually just this past january.  My cyst ruptured and I did not have my period for 2 months. I have 2 boys and the doctor was not concerned with the potential of me becoming infertile.

I’m pretty sure the only chance of infertility is if you have to have the cyst surgically removed. I thought mine was my appendix too. Only the one was extremely painful – pain meds would only make the pain dull. It never went away completely. The other cysts weren’t that bad at all though.

@batwoman:  You know, when I first when in when they determined I had “cramps,” they first thought it was my appendix. And 6 years later when my appendix had ruptured it took them 5 HOURS to diagnose it! Oy

@Toonski:  Haha, they took forever to figure mine out too! I think they just want to be 100% about it before they take you into surgery. I haven’t had one that bad since luckily, I’m pretty sure I would react the same way though. Cysts are surprisingly painful.
