Post Ovarian cyst

Question number two (I've warned you....)

Today I've seen a gyn because of my PMS/IBS problems and first thing he did is discover a cyst in my right ovary. Didn't really get round to explaining anything. Is it dangerous? Does it have an impact on hormones/PMS??

Thanks for any explanations!!

A lot depends on how big it is and how much it
bothers you. I had surgery back in 1992 and they
found 2 cysts together on my right ovary. They
removed the ovary, too. I had a lot of discomfort
leading up to that surgery and basically they did
an exploratory type of surgery and found this. I
really don't know that much about cysts on ovaries,
other than what I experienced. A lot probably
depends on what size it is and how rapidly it grows,
and how much discomfort you experience. One doctor
never did figure out my problem and told me to take
Motrin for discomfort, every few hours. That, I
could not handle and would not try, so ended up
having emergency surgery after being taken to
emergency room. Not under that Dr., but another

How did he discover the cyst? Did he do an ultrasound? Are you having any discomfort that he attributed to the cyst?

Keep in mind that every month as we ovulate, one ovary or the other will form a cyst during the ovulation process, and then it goes away. This is normal. It's when you get multiple cysts or one that gets really large and painful that you need to do something about it.

If I were you, I would call and get him to clarify what he meant when he mentioned a cyst to see if he was talking about the normal ovulation process that women go through every month or something abnormal.
