Ultrasound, Fibroids, and More!!
I had an ultrasound today to check on small cysts that were picked up in an MRI that I had for back pain. It appears that I have 2 cysts on one ovary, and 4 on the other, in addition to 4 fibroids, which I knew I had, but appear to have grown slightly. Yikes! The cysts are small-1.something centimeters, and I have had ovarian cysts before that have disappeared on their own in the past. The doctor is advising waiting two months, and then repeating the scan, and then possibly going on a short course of birth control pills to get rid of them if they're still there. I've done that before, also.
How long does this cyst cycle keep going? Is it safe to always be going on and off bc pills? I didn't like being on them the last time.
At 45 years old, with perimenopausal symptoms, should I just have the hysterectomy and be done with it all? As far as I know, I am not having any symptoms from the cysts. Is this related to perimenopause too??
