Ovarian Cyst

I had radical hysterectomy 11/96, left both ovaries. Then 11/00, I had 7 cm. cyst on right ovary. Had to have ovary removed. 08/01 had 6 cm. cyst on left ovary. Took birth control pills to shrink. 11/01 cyst was gone. 03/02 cyst was back 5 cm., am taking birth control pills again, but Dr. wants to remove this ovary. I am 31 years old.

I want to try to shrink cyst, then possibly he can take out ovary laproscopically, I hope I spelled that right. )

I have been feeling very nausiated. I am assuming it's the pills.

Has anyone else had this problem with cysts on their ovaries?
I hate to have my last ovary removed so young, but he says I will have to either take birth control or HRT from now on.

Would like to hear other opinions.

I never had a problem with ovarian cysts, but I'm bumping this back to the top hoping someone will respond who can help you.

Ovarian Cyst

Hi, sorry to hear about your problems with cysts. I had PCOS for years and took BCPs for over 15 years. I understand your desire to keep your ovary. It might be helpful for you to post on the hormone jungle forum, Ithink there are women there who have been through this situation. Also go to www.hormonejungle.com and read the articles on the pull down menu to find out more about HRT options. I hope you can save your ovary.

ovarian cyst

Hi, I'm in kind of the same situation. I have one remaining ovary (hyst 10/01) and it has a 4.5 cm cyst on it that hurts intermittently. My doctor wants to try to leave the ovary, so do I, because of my getting a blood clot while on the pill. Yesterday I had an MRI (after 4 ultrasounds that have not shown it going away, but getting a little smaller) so the dr could see it in more detail. I get the results of that next week.

She did say it wasn't cancerous, but I worry. If it has to be removed, it can be done with a lap, but even so. I sure don't want to go through any of this again.

I offer you my sympathy. I'm a lot older than you, 50, but I hate the thought of losing any more body parts.

Let us know what you decide.
