Re: Hemorrhagic Ovarian Cyst and uterine thickening - ?
I had the same sypmtoms hemorraigic a couple years ago - at 47. I also had complex and hemorraigic cysts, and a thick lining. My GYN did the endometrial biopsy - which came out normal. I continued to have follow up ultrasounds for two years (usually every 4-6 months) . I had numerous cysts that resolved and then came back. She even gave me the CA125 (blood test that may detect ovarian cancer). That was also always normal. I was really frustrated with going back so often. I felt like I lived at the GYN office. We even taked about surgery to remove the cysts and/or ovaries, but she suggested I wait.
Well last month I had my yearly exam, and another ultrasoud. No cysts at all, and my lining was thin - YEAH. But, I did have prolonged bleeding during the summer, so I had another endometrial biopsy and it was normal. It turns out that I'm not making eneough progesterone so she is having me take provera. I don't really like the idea of taking this, but I've had no side effects and it's much better than bleeding for a month straight, whcih is what was happening.
Sorry this was so long, but I thought you could see what it's been like for me over the past two years. It seems to all be very common during the peri-menopuase years - the hormones are going crazy.
I do think that having the tests and biopsy's helped ease my mind - even though it stressed me out to think something might be found - I was always happy to get good results. At this time I don't need to go back until my yearly exam next summer.
When you see your Dr again, maybe you can suggest some testing, just to prove that it's 'nothing' and will go away. You'll feel much better seeing it on paper.
