Re: 49-Year-Old With Complex Ovarian Cyst

Hi busymommy,

I have had about a dozen complex cyts over the past three years. So far they have all been small (about 1.5 - 2.5 cm) and have all resolved. I've also had a couple of simple cysts. Most of the time I didn't have any symptoms - I was getting ultrasounds to check my fibroids and uterine lining, when the cysts were found.
The biggest pain with these for me has been all the follow-up ultrasounds. I was going every three months for a while - but they need to be followed to make sure they resolve.

BTW - I'm 50 - and going through peri-menopuase - I think the raging hormones are the culprit here.
