Re: Ovarian cysts
I have a problem with cysts too. I had one the first time when I was 18. Then it ruptured. Now I have them and I dont even know it. Last September when I went in for my annual exam, I was so tender, that the DR ordered an ultrasound. It showed both of my cysts as being polycystic. And I had a thickend endometrium, with one bengin polyup. He put me on progesterone, to give me a "cleansing" period, and I havent had any problems since. I always get my period every 30 days, no unusual cramping. I always experience PMS, you know sore boobs, mood swings, bloating. I had my last normal period on March 17. Since then I have not had one. I knew something wasnt right when I didnt experience PMS the week before my period was due. Then day after I was supposed to start, I began to spot, the old brown blood, but it wasnt enough for a pad, and that didnt last very long. I know I am not pregnant because I had my tubes tied five years ago. Anyway I went to the DR today, and he said its not uncommon for women with polycystic ovaries not to have a period. He said he was going to put me on a med to make my period start and then its birth control pills for three months. Then he comes back in the room and says he wants to do an ultrasound before I take any medicine. He said because sometimes the cysts get big. So I go tuesday for that. I hate having these kinds of problems. I hate my period, but I know its apart of my bodies natural process so I want to have them if I am supposed to, you know? I just want my body to function normally.
