Cyst Ovary Pcos
I have pcos and i'm done having kids, I have numerous cysts and a lot of pain. Is surgery an option to remove ovaries?

Hi i have 6cm cyst right ovary&19 follicles left ovary(pcos).can i start clomid.i have had these for 3yrs no issues.dr wont remove?
No: It would be best to have 6cm cyst removed to increase chances of pregnancy. There is more to starting clomid than just knowing your follicle count. You would need many other tests on both partners first to ensure you are a good candidate. You should discuss further with your obgyn. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
4cm cyst in left ovary and trying to conceive.
Doctor said no clomid with cyst.
I am taking Metaformin 1000mg for PCOS.
Now i am waiting for the cyst to go off on its own.
Can you please give me a second opinion as to is this the right way?
4 cm ovarian cyst: There is no contraindication to clomid when having a "4 cm ovarian cyst" , unless the cyst was formed while taking other highly stimulatory medications for follicle production, and/or the estradiol levels are high as a result. Not every follicle actually bursts to produce an egg, in which case it slowly grows in size, but usually resolves (bursts) spontaneously. PCOS often produces these cysts. ...Read more
