Probably unwise but: A careful medical history and evaluation of your signs and symptoms by a Gyn (including a better description of the size, vascular pattern, blood flow, Doppler characteristics of the ovarian cyst...) would seem wiser.

Is it normal to have ight ovary 4.5x3.4x2.1cm and left 2.6x2.4x1.6 cm and endometrial stripe 1.4 cm?

Well, you can see: That the right ovary seems to be a little bit bigger than the left.

Similarly, the endometrial stripe is a little thick (upper limit of normal usually is 1.1 cm). All this suggests need for good evaluation with GYN ...Read more
