I was diagnosed with a 4.2x4.3 non hormone secreting pituitary tumor back in Feb. Now I have a 3.2cm ovarian cyst. Are they related?

Does lack of hormones to develop an ovarian cyst cause infertility?

Does lack of hormones to develop an ovarian cyst cause infertility?

If no follicle, yes: Ovarian cysts are very common but not 'normal'. I am guessing you mean lack of hormones to develop an ovarian follicle - a cyst-like structure that releases an egg (ovulates). Some women don't ovulate because of low FSH / lh hormones (may be due to stress, exercise, eating disorders, underweight), some have high FSH & low egg supply. Low hormones makes it harder to conceive. See a fertility md. ...Read more

I had 8cm ovarian cyst and endometrial tissue removed. Is it necessary to take hormones such as lupron (leuprolide) to prevent a reoccurence?

I had 8cm ovarian cyst and endometrial tissue removed. Is it necessary to take hormones such as lupron (leuprolide) to prevent a reoccurence?

No: Lupron (leuprolide) will help prevent recurrence while you are on it. However, Lupron (leuprolide) is usually used short term and it may recur after you stop it. Drugs such as birth control pills can be used long term and so may be more helpful. Still, going on hormones after surgery is not absolutely necessary. ...Read more

Does a large ovarian cyst and cervical cysts indicate a hormone imbalance & would that be excess estrogen? But progesterone high days I hurt all over

Does a large ovarian cyst and cervical cysts indicate a hormone imbalance & would that be excess estrogen? But progesterone high days I hurt all over

Ovarian cyst: If you have a large ovarian cyst this needs to be evaluated by an Obgyn to determine if needs to be removed or if it is likely to resolve on its own. The term cervical cyst is unclear in meaning. An Obgyn should evaluate this to determine if further work up is needed. Neither of these would lead one to suspect a hormonal imbalance. ...Read more

Yes i hav all my blood n hormone test n my husband semen too reported less motility n sperm count.Wht should I do for my ovarian cyst 3.6?

Ignore cyst ; do IUi: Most ovarian cysts of 3.6 cm can be ignored unless very tender or painful ; should not interfer with pregnancy. In utero insemination with your husbands fresh semen would likely be next logical step toward pregnancy. Fertility dr would inject semen directly into our cervix as an office procedure after ovulation. Good luck. ...Read more

Could my acne be related to ovarian cysts and excess facial hair? Last checked(about a month ago) hormones were okay . My cycles are regular 28 days.

Could my acne be related to ovarian cysts and excess facial hair? Last checked(about a month ago) hormones were okay . My cycles are regular 28 days.

Yes: Respectfully, i doubt we fully understand a woman's hormonal symphony. The question we can answer isn't whether you have a relative excess of androgens or what else may be involved, but whether your acne can be treated effectively. If you want, it can be, whether by the oral contraceptive pill, topical rx (clindamycin, retinoic acid, benzoyl peroxide), and/or systemic antibiotics. Thanx 4 writing. ...Read more
