My thyroid level is 13.21 h my B12 is 1793 h I have a ovarian cyst. Can this all be related?

Thyroid disease: Any thyroid abnormality, whether excessive thyroid hormone or less than normal can affect a woman's menstrual cycle, but either does not generally cause ovarian cysts. Your B12 level will not cause an ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts are spontaneous, and at 56, may require surgery to diagnose the cause. See your physician for advice soon. ...Read more

Can an underactive thyroid and an ovarian cyst (10cm)have anything to do with each other, also period 1 week late, could either of these be causing this?

Can an underactive thyroid and an ovarian cyst (10cm)have anything to do with each other, also period 1 week late, could either of these be causing this?

Yes: Underactive and untreated hypothyroidism can cause late or delayed menstrual cycles. The thyroid has no relationship, however, to the formation of an ovarian cyst. Your cyst, at 10cm, is at risk of rupturing or turning on itself, called torsion. Have you spoken to a doctor about having the cyst drained or removed? No roller coasters, I've seen patients with big cysts get torsion from a coaster. ...Read more

Several issues: There are several areas that should be explored with your doctor. First, get evaluated for a hormonal imbalance. With thinning hair and an ovarian cyst, the diagnosis of pcos is possible. The osteopenia is concerning because of your age but can be caused by some sort of nutritional deficiency, such as vitamin d deficiency or celiac disease (causing difficulty with absorption of vitamins). ...Read more

I was diagnosed with 5.2 CM ovarian cyst. It doesn't cause me problems, I didn't even know that before the ultrasound. Is surgery necessary?

Cysts will resolve: Small cysts on the ovary are very common. The overwhelming majority will resolve on their own without surgery. Although they may hurt the best treatment is to take Ibuprofen for the pain and to wait to see if it goes away. Usually obgyns will repeat the sonogram 6-8 weeks later to confirm the cyst has resolved. ...Read more

I have had 2 operations before due 2 ovarian cyst. Now my problem is I bleed all the time during sexual intercouse. What could be the cause?

A vag-cervical cause: The most likely cause of your "bleeding during sexual-vaginal intercourse" is an undiagnosed lesion in your vulva, vagina or cervix. A careful Gyn evaluation, visualization of your genital tract, cervical screening (Pap test, viral and bacteriological exams...) should answer your question. ...Read more
