How do ovarian cysts cause weight gain? It's listed as a symptom everywhere and I'm experiencing it since being diagnosed w/ 2 small cysts.

They do not: Ovarian cysts do not cause weight gain. Perhaps you are reading something about polycystic ovarian syndrome. In this case many women who struggle with weight gain also have multiple small ovarian follicles referred to as polycystic ovaries. This is not the same thing as having an ovarian cyst. If you're struggling with weight gain please investigate other causes.

Severe lower right quad. Pain. Have complex ovarian cyst. Have gained 4 inches in waist and hips in a month but no weight gain. Could it be from cyst?

Severe lower right quad. Pain. Have complex ovarian cyst. Have gained 4 inches in waist and hips in a month but no weight gain. Could it be from cyst?

Maybe: Ovarian cysts can get large. They can cause pain, and also predispose to ovarian torsion, which cuts off the blood supply to the ovary, causes severe pain, and requires emergent medical attention. There are other causes of severe right lower quadrant pain that have nothing to do with the ovaries, like appendicitis. Please seek medical attention ASAP.

2 cysts on left overy. One is simple at 5cm & other is 3.5cm solid. CA-125 normal. Left ovary vol is 99.8, cause weight gain? Could CA-125 be wrong?

2 cysts on left overy. One is simple at 5cm & other is 3.5cm solid. CA-125 normal. Left ovary vol is 99.8, cause weight gain? Could CA-125 be wrong?

Ovarian cysts: Dear Heather-- Simple cysts seen on transvaginal sonography are almost always benign. Solid cysts need to be followed by a gynecologist because of slight risk of ovarian cancer. CA-125 is usually negative with ovarian cysts. Whenever a test result is questioned it should certainly be repeated. One or several ovarian cysts are not related to weight gain.

Does swelling cause weight gain after laparascopic surgery/ovary removal? The incision was made bigger to remove the cyst. 2 weeks and still swelled.

Does swelling cause weight gain after laparascopic surgery/ovary removal? The incision was made bigger to remove the cyst. 2 weeks and still swelled.

Maybe: Abdominal swelling can be normal up to 4-6 weeks after surgery due to the inflammation and healing from the inside where surgery was done as well as because of the incision healing. Just make sure the wound looks ok and is not swollen because of an infection, where it will be red, very tender and may even have drainage. If this is the case, then you should see your surgeon.

Ruptured ovarian cyst. Does it cause bloating, weight gain, headache and dizziness? How long do the the symptoms last? Does it cause abdominal spasm

Not sure one can: Pin the symptoms on ruptured ovarian cyst, but pregnancy will cause those symptoms. Check the pregnancy test. If negative, check it again in 1 week.
