Can ovarian cysts cause pain to walk and it hurts on the left side, I have been taking birth control pills and still got a cyst. How come.

Can ovarian cysts cause pain to walk and it hurts on the left side, I have been taking birth control pills and still got a cyst. How come.

Usually resolve: It is normal for a small cyst to develop on the ovaries from time to time. Ovarian cysts are quite common in women during their reproductive years and may be a single cyst or many cysts. Most cysts are benign and only require monitoring. Most are cysts which develops from tissue that changes in the normal process of ovulation. They usually disappear within 6-8 weeks.

You should be disc: Discussing this with your gyn doc, depends on what kind of cysts you have, you may need to get on continuous bc pills to prevent the cysts, if you have endometriosis you may need depo- Lupron (leuprolide) or further surgery so without knowing more details cannot provide other advice so you should make an appt with your gyn or go for a 2nd opinion, but if u go for a 2nd opinion make sure u bring your records.

Ovarian cyst cause a change in discharge? Experiencing sharp pain in lower left side and a thick white/milky stretchy discharge with mild odor.

Ovarian cyst cause a change in discharge? Experiencing sharp pain in lower left side and a thick white/milky stretchy discharge with mild odor.

Discharge: I would look to other causes of this pain and rule out cervicitis, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, urerthritis or a urinary tract infection. You need to see a doctor to have a urine test and a pelvic exam and possibly cultures taken to determine the cause. Hope this helps

May need to go to ER: If your abdominal pain continues to get worse, you should go to an ER in a hospital as Surgery may be necessary to remove the cyst if your pain is severe, persistent and associated with nausea/ vomiting or Fever. If you remain relatively well for 24 hours then you could wait to see your doctor next week.

Will a 4cm functional ovarian cyst on my left go away on its own and why is all my pain on my right side abdomen and back?

Yes: A 4cm. Functional cyst should resolve on its own. The pain you are experiencing on the opposite side may be unrelated or could be what is called referred pain where a problem in one location causes pain some where else.

I have a 4cm ovarian cyst on my left side. How serious is it?

I have a 4cm ovarian cyst on my left side. How serious is it?

Likely, not very.: It is normal for the ovary to undergo monthly changes that allow for the development of cystic, collections of fluid, within them. For a young patient such as you, it would be best to be followed conservatively if this is not giving any symptom of pain, pressure, bladder or bowel changes and most importantly if you are not pregnant or are sexually active and not on any form of birth control.

Was diagnosed with a right ovarian cyst, but have pain in my left side. Is this normal?

Was diagnosed with a right ovarian cyst, but have pain in my left side. Is this normal?

Possible: It's not normal, but possible to have pain in the opposite side. If the cyst ruptures, some blood may spill in the pelvis and irritate the tissue, causing pain. If it moves to the other side, it will hurt there. More likely, however, pain on the opposite side may be due to something else going on. Left sided pain is frequently related to the colon. you may need to have that evaluated.

I have several ovarian cyst 3 on my left side they are all small 1.4 but I have one on my right side that is 4.6 which is causing the pain im hurting?

You should be seen: An enlarging cyst that is painful is in danger of rupturing with any injury, even sex. See the doc who prescribed the ultrasound and ask to have it removed. Tell them you are also worried about cancer (which it probably isn't with this many cysts, but the only way to prove it is to remove it). Also ask whether anything can be done to slow the growth of the cysts.
