I have pcos & my cysts in my ovaries had rupture two months ago. I was wondering will taking chasteberry vitex & prenatal vitamins help me conceive?

Avoid chasteberry: Vitex and prenatal vitamins will help keep you healthy and being as healthy as possible may help you conceive. Chasteberry changes hormone levels and should be avoided. Your best chance of having a child with PCOS is to work closely with a gynecologist skilled in PCOS.

You: You should be seen by your doctor and have an ultrasound. An ultrasound is the best way typically to determine if a woman has ovarian cysts. Also if there is any chance you could be pregnant then please take a test. If you have worse pain, think you are pregnant, or have vomiting or fever then you should be seen as an emergency.

Birth control pills: No health insurance doesn't mean no health care. Check out planned parenthood. Or check out links on my website for low cost, even free, healthcare. All birth control pills have similar risks. Pick lowest dose that controls your pain. Good luck!

What happens to my ovarian cyst if I stop taking birth control?

What happens to my ovarian cyst if I stop taking birth control?

It depends: There are ovarian cysts that will go away over time, and others that are more serious and need surgery. Birth control pills prevent many types of cysts, and thus can be helpful in preventing cysts. They don't make cysts go away away faster, but they prevent some types of cysts. See your dr about what kind of cyst you have.

I'm taking birth control for an ovarian cyst and I'm going back in 4 months to check and see if it's gone. Will it make it go away?

I'm taking birth control for an ovarian cyst and I'm going back in 4 months to check and see if it's gone. Will it make it go away?

Ovarian Cyst: Ovarian cysts are actually quite common in premenopausal women. (The function of the ovary by nature is to produce cysts each month). BCPs do not make the cysts go away. They prevent ovulation, which allows the ovaries to "rest" while the cyst resolves on its own, and no further ones develop. Should be gone by this time. Good luck!

Someone is taking adipex that doesn't need it- now has unexplained ovarian cyst/female and various kidney issues. Is there a possible connection?

No: It is unlikely that adipex would cause these complications. It is important that the patient is being treated by an experienced bariatrician to avoid any complications while losing weight.
