What does "involuting" cyst mean on ultrasound results
I posted a few days ago with questions concerning my ovarian cyst. I now got more details about my ultrasound and wonder what it means. They said it was an involuting cyst. And the report read "probable cyst" measuring 18mm. It did not give details as to what type of cyst ie fluid etc. What does that mean?
I have been having right side for the past 4 days. Yesterday it was really bad and felt like really bad period cramps, but I am not due to get my period for 5 days and I had spotting yesterday. Is that normal with a cyst? Will I keep getting these every month?
I also have menstrual inconsistencies.
The doctor said that if I keep having issues I could go on birth control. I am 37, is that safe to do for someone of my age? And does it really help? She wants to put me on the mini pill which I just read can increase the risk for functional cysts. ?????? How would that help?
Thank you for your time and any info.!
