I have nw endometrioma & total correction of tof. Bt my cyst is bcoming large. Nw wht I do?I m 27yr unmarried.

Endometriosis: Endometriomas can be treated by laparoscopic surgery to decrease the size of the cyst, or to remove the cyst. The goal would be to treat the endometriosis and conserve the ovaries. Medical treatment(zoladex, lupron, (leuprolide) or progestins) can also be used to suppress your normal hormone cycle and allow the cyst to decrease in size. This may take longer and may not be effective with larger endometriomas. ...Read more

Removed endometrioma 3 mts ago. I got recurrence. Already 5cm. Painful everyday. Does that mean the cyst is growing? How can I manage the pain?

Removed endometrioma 3 mts ago. I got recurrence. Already 5cm. Painful everyday. Does that mean the cyst is growing? How can I manage the pain?

Maybe: Wow, i'm so sorry that's happening to you. I can't imagine your pain. If you already have a 5cm recurrent endometrioma, most gyn doctors are going to recommend removal, laparoscopically. These cysts don't go away on their own, and can cause problems associated with infertility and scarring. Best if already 5cm that you have removed. In terms of pain, you may consider nsaid, such as ibuprofen. ...Read more

Endometriosis reoccurred after 2nd surgery, dr refused 3rd surgery said would cause it to spread and become worse, I have an endometrioma, is this true?

Fertility Specialist: At this point you would likely benefit from seeing a specialist. There are different options and different concerns. Surgery is still an option but you really need to know what your goals are. I would not do anything before seeing a specialist. And yes only surgery will remove an endometrioma but not all of them need to be removed. ...Read more

What are the steps I have to take if I want a Dr to check for endometrioma cyst or endometriosis?

What are the steps I have to take if I want a Dr to check for endometrioma cyst or endometriosis?

Do you understand: that "checking for" endometriosis means a diagnostic surgery such as laparoscopy? (Just making sure.) An endometrioma can be seen and suspected by ultrasound, but not pelvic endometriosis. If you feel you need or want surgery for diagnosis you should talk directly with a gynecologist about your wishes and reasons. A primary doctor may be helpful if you need a referral. Best wishes. ...Read more

I heard most Endometrioma grows every period. Does it also grow every washout week when I am on pill? The same blood flows

NO: I assume you mean an endometrial tumor or fibroid. There is not a specific washout week on the pill. The tumor would be a slow growing and usually with a hormonal imbalance. During the time you are on the pill your body "thinks" you are pregnant. If you think you have an endometrial tumor see your doctor. ...Read more

I had my right ovary removed 7 days ago due to a 14 CM endometrioma. I should be ovulating now but digital tests say i'm not. Is this normal?

I had my right ovary removed 7 days ago due to a 14 CM endometrioma. I should be ovulating now but digital tests say i'm not. Is this normal?

Maybe due to surgery: If your biggest follicle (the fluid-filled structure that contains an egg) was on your right ovary and was removed with the surgery you may still ovulate on the left side this month, but it may be delayed. You might not ovulate until a new follicle develops on the left side. If you're trying to conceive with one ovary and endometriosis see a reproductive endocrinology (rei) specialist for help. ...Read more

What is a complex cystic lesion in left ovary that may represent a haemorrhagic cyst or endometrioma?

What is a complex cystic lesion in left ovary that may represent a haemorrhagic cyst or endometrioma?

Complex Cyst: A simple cyst appears "clear" on radiographic studies, therefore a complex cyst is anything else. They can appear to be filled with blood, have separations inside or appear different in 2 or more areas. Radiographic studies are no 100% diagnostic, so make sure you review with your doctor. Hemorrhagic means containing blood. Endometrioma can mean containing blood or uterine tissue. ...Read more
