    Question Can Small Ovarian Cysts Cause So Much Discomfort?

    I have ovarian cysts that appear, and then disappear. They are never more than 2 cm in size, but cause me so much discomfort (I think they are causing this). Nausea, lower and upper backache, gas, fatigue, pelvic/abdominal pain and more I can't think of now.

    My doctor doesn't seem to think they are causing this and isn't testing me for anything else because I had an abdominal ultrasound about a year and a half ago for another problem and also have had stool tests that were negative. She thinks it may be IBS (I donít think soÖI know my body).

    Anyone know for sure their small cysts are causing their troubles?

    Thanks for any replies!

    Re: Can Small Ovarian Cysts Cause So Much Discomfort?

    Oh yeah, they sure can. I have Polycystic Ovary Disease and I can tell when I have a cyst. My guts feel like they are being ripped out and it's like my ovary is twisting or something. Horridly painful.

    I use a hot water bottle on my lower abdomen, and take Ibuprophen regularly at the start of the onset of pain and I don't stop until the pain is gone.

    Ideally the treatment for POD is metformin, but I tend to be hypoglycemic and metformin would make that worse. So I was being managed on Depo Provera but have since stopped that when I returned to taking BC pill. I find that so long as my body is getting that extra bit of hormones, that I don't have that yanking, tugging feeling in my pelvic area.
