Ovarian Cyst

Hi everyone,
I went to the doctor last week having a sharp stabbing pain my my left side. I was given a pelvic exam, pap, and an u/s was ordered. When she did the pelvic exam I cried the whole time I was in so much pain, and came home and cried for hours. I went the following day for the u/s and got results today from all the tests. I was diagnosed with chlamydia, Bacterial Vaginosis and the u/s revealed a cyst on my left ovary. They were unsure as to whether or not the chlamydia had caused PID and decided to give me medication for it just to be sure. The doctor told me I needed to return in 3 months time to have another u/s to see if the cyst had cleared up on its own. My question is, would the PID cause the pain that I am having? also, I am worried about this cyst. the doctor didn't give me any info about the size of it or anything. This is causing a lot of pain and also worry. Should I be getting a second opinion on this?

Sorry you are having so much pain ! With all you have going on it's no wonder you poor thing ! So as far as the pain , Chlamydia and bacterial Vaginosis should not cause the pain you are describing but PID definitely will. Also , the cyst can cause pain for you too as I have one that causes me pain. I think you are safe going back in a few months to see if it is still there. Other than being invasive they will not do anything for it if it does not seem worrisome to them . I have dealt with them my whole life . You do know that the 3 things you have contracted are sexually transmitted right ? I would be a little more worried about clearing that all up before even worrying about the cyst as those to can lead to serious things if not dealt with ! Good luck to you and hope you feel better soon !

Re: Ovarian Cyst

Yes, I am on medication for everything to clear it up. The doctor told me that the BV isn't sexually transmitted, rather a imbalance of the PH levels in the vagina. Any suggestions on dealing with the pain? Tylenol, heating pads, baths, nothing seems to be helping. Also thanks for the well wishes, I really can't wait to feel better!

Re: Ovarian Cyst

Hope you feel better soon, . As for the cyst, try warm compresses to sooth your pain, and get off your feet when possible.
