Ovarian cyst 25mm can it cause aching legs and pain on the opposite ovary, also is it normal to have periods every 14 days or less at 47?

Ovarian cyst 25mm can it cause aching legs and pain on the opposite ovary, also is it normal to have periods every 14 days or less at 47?

Something else: It would be uncommon for a cyst 25mm to cause pain. If the pain was associated with endometriosis, then yes, this could be of a piece causing pain, but cysts that size are too small to cause pain in and of themselves. Not normal to have periods that frequent at 47. Could be breakthrough bleeding, but need biopsy at 47 to make sure it's not pre-cancer or cancer. See your gynecologist soon.

Would a ovarian cyst and uterine polyp cause pelvic pain every day & back ache, shivers down legs aching legs, headaches. Heavy periods.

Polyp: A uterine polyp can certainly cause heavy periods. Ask if you are a candidate for a simple minimally invasive procedure called myosure. An ovarian cyst can cause pain.

Family practice: Post menopausal bleeding always needs to be checked out. It sounds like you have seen your dr already. U/s has been done. Next step is to have endometrial biopsy. Gyn consult to see if you are a surgical candidate.

Could an ovarian cyst cause you to have black discharge during the next period?

Could an ovarian cyst cause you to have black discharge during the next period?

Not per se: An ovarian cyst by itself should not alter the menstrual bleeding. However, depending on the type of cyst, it may be associated with hormonal disturbance. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD. Consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Nichd. Nih.

Can ovarian cyst cause pain before and after period?

Yes, potentially: If it is large one (not just the normal follicular cysts that women develop in the normal course of hormone production to cause the menstrual cycle to occur). Also if the cyst does not resolve as it should normally, then it could cause pain.

I have an ovarian cyst on my left side. I just started bleeding, period isent due for two weeks? What is this?

I have an ovarian cyst on my left side. I just started bleeding, period isent due for two weeks? What is this?

2 Things: It's possible, though unlikely, that the ovarian cyst caused your bleeding. Most cysts aren't hormonally 'active' as it were and wouldn't affect the uterus' cycling. More likely is that you are having breakthrough bleeding, due to changes in your ovaries' production of estrogen and progesterone. See a doctor if the breakthrough bleeding continues.

Depends: If the cyst is due to anovulation (egg which has not released) there are a variety of abnormal menstrual patterns which may be seen, including a delay in period. If appropriate a pregnancy test should be done for delayed or missed periods.

Does ovarian cyst making stop my period for two months?

Possibly: The presence of hormonally active ovarian cysts can definitely have an effect on your cycle. If you period is absent, then you must check a pregnancy test. The workup would also include tests of thyroid function and measures of other hormones.

Can having an ovarian cyst cause me to have a light period? And I have always had a heavier period...Im just wondering if I could be pregnant.

There's a chance: Pregnancy is always a possibility. Discuss with your surgeon. Obtain a home pregnancy test. They usually become positive at about the same time the next expected period. If it's negative, repeat it in a week.

Is it true that ovarian cysts cause more painful periods?

No: I am not aware of any evidence that ovarian cysts lead to more painful menstrual cramps. Menstrual cramps are primarily related to the release of prostaglandins in the uterus.

I have a large ovarian cyst. Can it cause ovulation without periods?

No. Ov. cyst don't: No. Your large ovarian cyst will not "cause ovulation without periods" nor will it cause ovulation or cause your periods. Ovulation usually is followed by menstruation. The absence of menstrual periods can be caused by hormonal or ovulation disturbances. Your large ovarian cyst will require a careful evaluation and surgical exploration preferably by a gyn oncologic surgeon.

How can you be tested for infertility and ovarian cysts. And also the cause of irreglur periods.

How can you be tested for infertility and ovarian cysts. And also the cause of irreglur periods.

Yes: Infertility evaluation can always be done. For aggressive expert opinion find a reproductive endocrinologist. Small multiple ovarian cysts on the outer edge of your ovaries can be related to infertility consistent with polycystic ovarian syndrome.
