Advice please?

On ultrasound in May I had a complex ovarian cyst diagnosed suggestive on endometrioma (had endometriosis 25 years ago). It was still there in late July and had grown by 1/3 but is still small, only 1.5cms. CA125 in May was 14. I am not menopausal, am 48, had fertiility drugs (Clomid for at least 12 months in 2 separate bursts) but had no children. Never been on the Pill. I experience ovary pain for around 2 hours a day, spotting etc

I would like it removed, does anyone else have a similar story?

Thanx to all

Hello pushka
I had a cyst on right ovary found during lap removal of endometriosis last year. The docs said it would probably just disappear on its own and never mentioned whether it was "complex" or not. I have no children, 40 y/o and have been on BC off and on for last 24 years. Have now got mirena iud which has left me with light bleeding/spotting all the time. Ovary pain, like yours, persists for about 2 to 3 hours a day along with really low back ache. It really knocks me off my feet now as it is getting progressively worse. I am now in process of trying to get my doctor to refer me to the gyno again. I am sure he will but I have a hard time dealing with a lot of negativity. They thought the mirena would be the answer to my problems but it has just traded one bad situation off for another.

Good luck
