infertility and complex cysts

My husband and i have been trying to conceive for 2 years now, and i was very in tuned into my cycles. I was pretty sure i was feeling my ovulation, and even took the ovulation tests to confirm it. i had a normal 28 day cycle, and a regular 5 day period. I finally made the appt with my OBGYN to see what was up. Blood work came back normal, and she sent me for an ultra sound. I was able to view the report but my doctor wants to meet with me directly in 7 more agonizing days. This is what the report says...

Large Nabothian cyst
uterine cyst
enlarged uterus
thickened endometrial lining w/polyps
multiple ovarian cysts
complex cysts in both ovaries

to doesn't sound too wonderful. i know what each individual thing is, but with it all together, i don't know what my chances of conception will be. i dont know what my options will be, and it's driving me nuts! why the heck would they make me wait soooo long it seems to discuss options?

cant sleep

Re: infertility and complex cysts


Most likely your doctor will recommend the removal of the complex ovarian cysts and a D & C to "clean out" your uterus.

The uterus is enlarged most likely because of a thickened lining and the cyst/polyps. The D & C should also take care of the polyps. Complex ovarian cysts are usually removed and biopsied, to be on the safe side. Most of these are completely benign as are most uterine polyps and cysts. However, removing these will not only ensure that all is well but it may help with conception as well.

As for the nabothian cyst on your cervix, this may go away by itself or it may not. If it does not, it will have to be removed as it may present a problem during delivery. Since you have a large cyst here and you want to get pregnant, it is something that needs to be addressed.

Try to keep your mind on other things while you are waiting to see your doctor. Most likely this is what he or she is going to recommend to you. They may also give you the option of watching these things with regular ultrasounds to see if they go away on their own.

Be sure to tell your doctor when during your cycle the ultrasound was done. If it was done say just before your period then it is only normal that the endometrial lining is thicker. All will depend upon how thick it is. Usually a thickness of more than 1 cm requires a D & C. Also, if you were ovulating at the time then this is why they saw many ovarian cysts (these are most likely graaphian follicles or corpus luteal cysts which are normal). The complex ones still need to be addressed though.

I hope this helps a bit. I would not worry about it. Try to be patient and stay occupied until your doctor's appointment. A few days will not make a difference, except perhaps to your sanity and this all depends on you. As tough as it is, hang in there.

Re: infertility and complex cysts

you definately put my mind at ease. yes, the lining is greater than 1 cm. As long as i will be able to keep all of my "parts" to conceive, i'm happy with that. Thank you for the words of wisdom. :-)
