My 16 yr old daughter found out today that she has a 7 CM ovarian cyst. (on the pill) she can barely move from the pain! What do we do?
See gynecologist!: 7 cm cysts are usually benign but may need surgery due to size. Pain can be due to "torsion" or twisting of the blood supply to the ovary, risking the health of that ovary. The pain can be from the size of the ovary or partial rupture. Surgery does not necessarily require removal of the ovary but could be only removal of the cyst. ...Read more
I'm on my first month of LoEstrin Fe to dissolve an ovarian cyst. I'm on day 22 of my normal cycle but day 11 of the pill. I'm spotting. Normal?
Can be: Normally we like to start pill on first day of period, but not always practical. The dose of the pill may not be high enough to offset your body's normal cycle and that could explain the spotting. The pill may blunt your normal period resulting in less bleeding than normal. I am assuming your gyn doctor recommending several cycles of pill. If issue continues, discuss with them. Change pill? ...Read more
