My ovarian cyst has ruptured i now have some bleeding and my hCG levels has dropped 6241 to 1177 can the cyst do this I am 7wks pregnant?

A ruptured ovarian cyst could make you bleed inside your pelvis, but the vaginal bleeding is likely coming from inside the uterus. A pelvic exam and ultrasound would be the most helpful in figuring out what is going on. ...Read more

Is the hCG diet safe? I bought drops but am scared of side effects. I have ovarian cysts and heard hCG can turn them cancerous? Is this true?

Is the hCG diet safe? I bought drops but am scared of side effects. I have ovarian cysts and heard hCG can turn them cancerous? Is this true?

It's silly stuff: The 'hcg diet' is an 800-calorie severely restrictive diet and this is why you lose weight. The overpriced placebo that is tacked on will probably do nothing. Further, HCG does not turn ovarian cysts cancerous. Why not take the money and join a fitness club, make friends, and embark on a far happier and less fear-darkened life? Cheers. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst. This month my period is very light to the point that I don't need to wear a pad. My pH levels are low can i still get pregnant?

OVARIAN CYST: Assuming that this ovarian cyst is an unruptured follicle, ovulation will not take place (the egg failed to break the follicle and be released). If this cyst has persisted for some time, it may not have an effect on your ability to become pregnant. Many cysts break, and then normal cycles can resume. Check with your health professional to make sure the cyst is simple and no surgery is required ...Read more
