Functional Ovarian Cyst, while on BC --> Still worried!
I was recently diagnosed with a functional ovarian cyst. I had been experiencing abdominal discomfort for about a month, with constipation, and mild pelvic and abdominal pain for about 2 weeks. I went to my gynecologist who did a pelvic exam and did not feel anything, but did a transvaginal ultrasound just to make sure. The ultrasound found that I had a 2.8 cm functional cyst on my left ovary.
My concern is... that I got this cyst while taking the birth control pill (ortho-tri-cyclin). I asked my gynecologist about this and she said it was still totally possible to get a cyst while on the pill, and that my pill was probably actually keeping the cyst smaller than it would otherwise be. I didn't think you could get cysts while on the pill, but I guess I should trust her right? What does anyone else think?
She wrote me a prescription for some motrin, and I am supposed to come back the first week of August to get another ultrasound to check on it.... I have a lot of health anxiety so I am worried that maybe it will become "complex" or maybe she missed something. Should I just relax or what? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
