Ovarian cyst on left ovary for 2 years. Constant dull pain in groin area. Has not changed in size 2.75cm. Should I opt for removal? Dr leaving it 2 me

Maybe: You say that you've had a pain in the area for 2 years, that's a long time. While the cyst is on the smaller side, at 2.75cm, if the pain is interfering with your quality of life then maybe a laparoscopic surgery would be warranted. Drs will recommend surgery when it's necessary, but when you're the one taking the risks, and there's no threat of cancer, then you are the best one to decide. ...Read more

Could be normal: Follicles are what mature an egg prior to ovulation - these ebb and flow during every month, so that's normal. Fluid in the endometrial canal could also mean that you have ovulated and your uterine inner lining is becoming more friendly to welcome and nurture sperm. The divided uterus could be an issue, but most likely (if the report is not definitive) it should not affect your fertility. ...Read more

What are the chances of getting pregnant with poly cystic ovaries syndrome? I was diagnosed with poly cystic ovaries about 4 years ago. I was placed on birth control and metformin. I haven't really stuck with the metformin and changed my birth control whi

"Poly: "poly cystic ovaries syndrome" (pcos) is a general term used to describe a collection of symptoms and medical signs. One of the most common findings is that a woman does not release an egg (ovulate) each month. When a woman does not ovulate, she usually does not have a period. A period occurs when a woman ovulates but does not get pregnant. The severity of pcos varies widely. Some people never ovulate. Some people ovulate several times a year. When a person ovulates normally, she has about a 20% chance of getting pregnant if she is less than 35 years of age. What this all means is that there is a chance that you are pregnant, but the odds are that you probably are not. The best thing to do is to check a home pregnancy test. Whether it is positive or negative, it is probably time for you to see your ob/gyn. If you are pregnant it is time. If you are not pregnant, you have a history of pcos and are trying to get pregnant. You most likely will need simple treatments in the form of pills to get pregnant. Good luck! ...Read more

42 years old my left ovary is hurting?

42 years old my left ovary is hurting?

Maybe: The left lower quadrant is complicated in terms of figuring what is causing the hurt. It may be the ovary but the pain may also be from the bowels, muscles, nerves, bladder, uterus & other things. The bowels are a common cause of pain in that location since the large intestine makes a turn into the rectum running right under the left ovary & the uterus. Exam & ultrasound imaging is needed. ...Read more

I just got my report back saying my right ovary has a volume of 22mls and my left has a volume of 27mls Is this normal I am 19years old.

Ovulation dependent: Depending on where you are in your cycle, your ovaries might be a bit larger/smaller. If you're actively recruiting follicles, your ovaries are going to be bigger and one is always going to be bigger than the other b/c the bigger one is the one that's going to release an egg. Nothing is very abnormal at this time, though I would continue to see your gynecologist and follow up for regular periods. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy two years ago. I still have my ovaries but I am still having pains. What could this be?

Unclear: If you had a hysterectomy because of pain, and the pain continued afterwards, it is possible that your pain was not due to your uterus. And, you should be evaluated for other causes of pain. If you are having persistent pain that began after your hysterectomy, you should have an evaluation by your gynecologist and a pelvic ultrasound to evaluate your ovaries. ...Read more
