Question Ovarian cysts.. Could it be from IUD??

Hi, I just went to the doctor and had two types of ultrasounds because I couldnt find the strings for my IUD and my doctor couldnt either.. Well in the regular ultrasound my IUD still was not found so had to have the endovaginal (i think thats what its called) but anyway the internal camera.. And my IUD was found in place but an ovarian cyst was found also on the right side..
I have never had one of them before so I am wondering if the IUD could be the cause of it??
I have herd people getting them with it but never knew if it could be a for sure cause.. If so I want it removed because I dont want to be dealing with them all the time.. I have to go back in 2 months to have it checked unless it becomes more of a problem sooner..
So my question is..
Has anyone with an IUD developed a ovarian cyst? Did it take care of itself or did u need surgery? And was the IUD the cause?
Any other info is great as well..

Well, I've never heard of that being the cause of an ovarian cyst for sure. In fact... I think you are ok.

There may be some other things you need to check though. For example: I have what is called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). It is common for me to get cysts. What people don't realize is that 10% of women have it and most women don't even know until later in life. I don't know any of your medical history or even your body type so you can just google it for yourself if you want.

Also, sometimes your ovaries just develop cysts, and they go away before you even know you had it. It's not uncommon.

I think it just happened to be at the same time. Don't stress. Just follow up with your doctor as instructed.
