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

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?

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?

Maybe: The most concerning thing is the drop in hormone level at 7 weeks of pregnancy. This combined with your bleeding sounds like a miscarriage. 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

My last period oct18, finished taking Duphaston 10days ago, negative hCG urine test, no ovarian cyst, today dec17 and no period, what can it be?

No menses: If you do not have bleeding after Progesterone withdrawal, there can be several causes. 1) pregnant and too early to check urine 2) the lining of the endometrium is too thin to get a bleed (called a silent period by some) 3) something blocking the cervix (doubtful because last month regular period). See your doctor. ...Read more

I've just been told I have a 7cm ovarian cyst with nodules sitting behind uterus. I need ca125, hcg,afp,ldh tests and surgery. Should I be worried?

I've just been told I have a 7cm ovarian cyst with nodules sitting behind uterus. I need ca125, hcg,afp,ldh tests and surgery. Should I be worried?

Your doctor will gui: The doctor who has ordered your tests suspects that you might have Cancer of the Ovary showing as a Cyst. But we need to have all the tests done, particularly CA125 before we can get any certain idea. A high CA -125 level is common in most cases with cancer of the ovary. But it can sometimes be high for other benign conditions but the elevation is more modest in those other conditions. ...Read more

HCG @ 940 on9/11. Unsure of how far i am. US yesterday showed no uterine sac,but fibourus cyst on ovary. Ovarian Ectopic or just too early for sac??

HCG @ 940 on9/11. Unsure of how far i am. US yesterday showed no uterine sac,but fibourus cyst on ovary. Ovarian Ectopic or just too early for sac??

940 = early: If you don't know how far along you are, it is hard to determine what would be expected to be found on US. An Hcg level of 940 suggests that you are very early in the pregnancy. The best plan is to ask your OB - the one who knows your case well! - about your concerns and learn what they are thinking. Be sure to follow up as they recommend and contact them if you are having any pain or bleeding. ...Read more
