Can ovarian cysts contribute to hormonal imbalances?

Can ovarian cysts contribute to hormonal imbalances?

Hmmm...: Hi. "Hormone imbalance" is a terrible term, and meaningless in medicine other than in describing complex systems to non-scientific people. Ovarian cysts are commonly seen in polycystic ovarian syndrome, which lay people may refer to as a "hormone imbalance". So, to me the question is meaningless, but to each his/her own. ...Read more

In pcos, free testosterone is elevated (decrease in sex hormone biding globulin) ; associated with hyperinsulinemia, which is caused by Insulin resistance.

Examples include "dermoid" cysts which can contain hair, skin secretions and other mature adult tissues. Other types are cystadenomas (both serous and mucinous), and cystadenofibromas. ...Read more

27yr old with heavy mid cycle bleeding for the past 6 months. I have a 4.5cm ovarian cyst. Doctors have said bleeding is hormonal. Other opinions?

Maybe: Heavy midcycle bleeding may be related to hormones related to a persistent ovarian cyst. If the cyst hasn't resolved, medical therapy may be indicated to suppress the cyst and if persistent, surgical intervention may be required for resolution. Ultrasound characteristics of the cyst can be important for determining if surgery is indicated. ...Read more

Can taking multiple (10tyms) Plan B cause ovarian cyst? If so, what kind? How long will the hormone be out of the body? Last, can it make you infertile

Can taking multiple (10tyms) Plan B cause ovarian cyst? If so, what kind? How long will the hormone be out of the body? Last, can it make you infertile

Plan B: Plan b will not make you infertile. It can increase risk for non-cancerous cysts. Taking Plan B so many times indicates the person is not using effective contraception and is having unprotected sex. This individual should see a physician to get tested for sti's and to develop an effective plan a. Plan b is a fall-back safety net. It should not be anyone's primary form of contraception. ...Read more

Does lack of hormones to develop an ovarian cyst cause infertility?

Does lack of hormones to develop an ovarian cyst cause infertility?

If no follicle, yes: Ovarian cysts are very common but not 'normal'. I am guessing you mean lack of hormones to develop an ovarian follicle - a cyst-like structure that releases an egg (ovulates). Some women don't ovulate because of low FSH / lh hormones (may be due to stress, exercise, eating disorders, underweight), some have high FSH & low egg supply. Low hormones makes it harder to conceive. See a fertility md. ...Read more

I had 8cm ovarian cyst and endometrial tissue removed. Is it necessary to take hormones such as lupron (leuprolide) to prevent a reoccurence?

I had 8cm ovarian cyst and endometrial tissue removed. Is it necessary to take hormones such as lupron (leuprolide) to prevent a reoccurence?

No: Lupron (leuprolide) will help prevent recurrence while you are on it. However, Lupron (leuprolide) is usually used short term and it may recur after you stop it. Drugs such as birth control pills can be used long term and so may be more helpful. Still, going on hormones after surgery is not absolutely necessary. ...Read more

Does a large ovarian cyst and cervical cysts indicate a hormone imbalance & would that be excess estrogen? But progesterone high days I hurt all over

Does a large ovarian cyst and cervical cysts indicate a hormone imbalance & would that be excess estrogen? But progesterone high days I hurt all over

Ovarian cyst: If you have a large ovarian cyst this needs to be evaluated by an Obgyn to determine if needs to be removed or if it is likely to resolve on its own. The term cervical cyst is unclear in meaning. An Obgyn should evaluate this to determine if further work up is needed. Neither of these would lead one to suspect a hormonal imbalance. ...Read more

Yes I hav all my blood n hormone test n my husband semen too reported less motility n sperm count. Wht should I do for my ovarian cyst 3.6?

Ignore cyst ; do IUi: Most ovarian cysts of 3.6 cm can be ignored unless very tender or painful ; should not interfer with pregnancy. In utero insemination with your husbands fresh semen would likely be next logical step toward pregnancy. Fertility dr would inject semen directly into our cervix as an office procedure after ovulation. Good luck. ...Read more

Could my acne be related to ovarian cysts and excess facial hair? Last checked (about a month ago) hormones were okay. My cycles are regular 28 days.

Could my acne be related to ovarian cysts and excess facial hair? Last checked (about a month ago) hormones were okay. My cycles are regular 28 days.

Yes: Respectfully, I doubt we fully understand a woman's hormonal symphony. The question we can answer isn't whether you have a relative excess of androgens or what else may be involved, but whether your acne can be treated effectively. If you want, it can be, whether by the oral contraceptive pill, topical rx (clindamycin, retinoic acid, benzoyl peroxide), and/or systemic antibiotics. Thanx 4 writing. ...Read more

With ovarian cyst rupture & almost getting my period can my hormones act diffrent since it was my first rupture? & that ovaries get traumatized?

No and No: Symptomatic ovarian cyst rupture is extremely common. In fact, many women can feel when they ovulate - this is the same thing - rupture of a cyst and release of an egg. Sometimes, this cyst can bleed and is likely what you are referring to. The ovary will heal and there are no lasting effects of these events. ...Read more

Could an ovarian cyst and breast mass mean hormonal imbalance? If so, what treatment can regulate this? Currently on femodette birth control

Need Immediate Eval: If those are happening you should be evaluated immediately. First the nature of the breast mass should be determined (cystic versus solid) and potentially a biopsy taken.

Not at all: Cysts form during ovulation and rupture to then release an egg for potential fertilization and pregnancy. Occasionally they don't rupture and grow too large and cause pain. So discovering a cyst may be just a normal finding, depending on the size. There is a medical condition called polycystic ovary syndrome in which a woman has an imbalance of a female sex hormones that can cause infertility. ...Read more
