Menopausal Ovarian Twinges
Hi, I'm 48 yo, have endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, pre-menopausal. CA 125 was around 200's then 159 the last one was 210 any concerns?
Likely, no: CA 125 is not recommended as a screening tool for ovarian cancer when used in risk-based stratification. Meaning, assuming that your mom or sister didn't get diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Normal for women with endometriosis to have elevated CA-125. It sounds like your doctor has done Ultrasound to evaluate ovaries as well. Your MD knows your history and risk, likely this CA-125 level is normal ...Read more

No: There is a blood test called fsh that can determine if you are in the menopause. Generally levels greater than 25-30 are suggestive of the menopause. Premature ovarian failure (pof) is the cessation of menses before the age of 38; and the most common cause in premature menopause. If you have pof, you should consult your gyn because it can sometimes be associated with other endocrine disorders. ...Read more

Is there anyway to get my eggs back, I have been in premature menopause/ premature ovarian failer since i was 15 im 26 now. Help?
Premature menopause: If you were diagnosed with premature menopause it means your ovaries are not functioning the way they supposed to. If you have a genetic condition it would be very difficult to conceive naturally. I suggest you seek help from a reproductive obgyn. ...Read more
It depends: An ovarian dermoid is a benign neoplasm (tumor) that won't spread beyond the ovary, but may continue to grow. If imaging (ultrasound or mri) suggest a dermoid, management may depend on whether there are any symptoms, the size of the tumor, whether it is growing, and whether there is any suggestion that it might be a different type of tumor or cancer. ...Read more
Estrogen replacement: Depending on your symptoms that may be early ovarian failure, tests can be done to see if your estrogen level is low. You can also obtain an amh level to determine if your ovarian reserve is truly low. If you need to take estrogen supplementation, Progesterone will need to be given each cycle as well if you still have a uterus. Your age and any medical issues may determine if you can take estrogen. ...Read more
Not usually: Menopause is defined by a decline in hormone levels and their effects. As the estrogen decreases, the ovaries become nonproductive. The appearance or enlargement of ovarian cysts should not occur after menopause. See your doctor as likely, this cyst needs to be removed. Your doctor will want to rule out cancer and the earlier the work up, the earlier treatment can be rendered for the best outcome. ...Read more
I am 54 years old with a painful ovarian cyst for 4 years now. Ultrasounds show it is simple. Does it need to be removed? I am not menopausal yet.
Maybe: You do not mention how large or small it is. A large simple cyst can be painful just as a small one. If it does not respond to treatment and it is still painful, there may not be that many options left other than take it out. ...Read more
See MD: A complex mass at any time is concerning-but more so after menopause. It may have been there for years and be totally benign, but most mds will be worried about a complex mass. A ca125 and he4 test can help decide whether to go to surgery now or closely watching with follow up ultrasound. If it is more than 5 cm or there are other worrisome looking signs on ultrasound, surgery will be necessary. ...Read more
What might cause a thickened uterine lining in a woman with premature ovarian failure vs. One in natural menopause?
Hi.......I have a 3.8 cm hemorrhagic right ovarian cyst. I will be 50 yrs old and not menopausal. Had a hysterectomy 10 yrs ago. What should I do?
Watch it...: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts usually go away on their own without surgical intervention. If it isn't too painful, its usually ok to repeat the u/s in a few months to make sure it is gone. If it is very painful, it can be removed surgically. Best wishes! ...Read more
Peeing small dots of blood and my ovarian hurts and I am in my menopause. I went six months ago to a check up and my pop test was normal what could it?
42yo, total hysterectomy followed by 2 ovarian remnant syndrome surgeries. Fsh at 21.8. No menopause symptoms, pain is back. Could it be remnant?
Ovarian remnant: Yes, unfortunately ovarian remnant can be difficult to surgically excise. Typically, in our practice, we purposefully stimulate the ovary prior to surgery so that we can see the tissue better. An alternative to surgery is to suppress ovarian function with hormones and see if the pain gets better. Sometimes, however, pain can be due to the scar tissue, which hormone therapy will not help. ...Read more
Aunt and grt-grandma (dad's side) died of ovarian cancer. Both post-menopause (aunt 59, ggm late 60s), both had kids in 20s. Heredity or coincidence?
Likely coincidence: Hard to say, but the association is much stronger with first degree relatives (sisters, mothers, etc). Your history does not rule out a hereditary component, so make sure you let your primary care physician know. ...Read more
What are the risks and side effects of uterine embolisation for fibroids?
Can it shut down ovarian function and trigger menopause?
Rarely: Overall, the risk of complications from uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is quite low. Infection is the most serious risk, sometimes requiring hysterectomy. There is a small risk of premature menopause, seemingly higher in women over 40. It is probably more difficult to get pregnant after UFE. But overall it is an effective, safe procedure for symptomatic fibroids. ...Read more
Hello, i am writing regarding my mom she has been on her period almost 11 she is 42 years old can it be pre-menopause or ovarian cancer?
Vaginal bleeding: Vaginal bleeding may be many things. It occurs in pre-menopause, because the periods get irregular around that time. It could also be other things in the uterus, endometrial hyperplasia or polyps or endometrial cancer. Ovarian cancer usually does not present this way. If she has not been seen by a GYN recently and this bleeding is new, she should make an appt to be sure. ...Read more
How long will menopause last?? I'm 31 y/o & had a total hysterectomy 4 weeks ago. I had it due to ovarian cysts & the family history risk of cancer
The rest of .....: your life! Thirrty-one is very young to have your ovaries removed and you will need hormone replacement therapy, likely, for your entire life in order to prevent bone thinning and, probably, heart disease. The symptoms of ovarian deficiency would be most severe right now, but you are 20 years away from natural menopause. Even if symptoms improve you will still be in menopause. Good wishes:) ...Read more
MRI (for other purpose) found 3 cm. ovarian cyst. Post-menopausal, hysterectomy/one ovary. Wasn't felt 4 months ago at gyn exam. Expect follow-up?
Very likely benign : If a pelvic sonogram confirms that your 3 cm ovarian cyst has thin walls, clear fluid,no septation and normal blood flow, it is most probably benign. If you have a personal history or a family history of breast-colon-endometrial-thyroid tumors, have never been pregnant, never used oral contraceptives, have symptoms and risk factors for ovarian tumors...consult a Gyn oncologist for evaluation. ...Read more
