Question Hypothyroidism & ovarian cysts??!

For the past few months I have been having sharp, intermittent pains in the lower right abdomen. My suspicions were confirmed today when the gynocologist told me I probably have a cyst. I'm scheduled for an ultra-sound soon. Does anyone know if Ovarian cysts can be caused by Hypothyroidism?

Yes it may well be. A few years ago while going for fertility treatments a few times they did find cysts in my ovaries and even a polyp in my uterus, so there may be some connection.

About 4 months ago I had an abnormal pap. I was told by ob/gyn dr to come back this month for another test. I am 30 yrs old and have never had an abnormal pap in my life. I also have two very small children.
Well...about two months ago I went to see my reg dr for chest pains...ran some tests and came out hypo. Can the abnormal pap be related to the hypo diagnosis? I will be going to see the ob/gyn next week. All this seems to be happing all at one time.-Roni

Thyroid disease can cause alot of health problems (minor and major) because the thyroid gland regulates everything. Hope everything turns out okay for you. Good Luck!
