I have ovarian cyst and sex is really painful. What can I do?

Gyn consult: Time to see a gyn. It might just be that you need a birth control pill, but it is also possible that you need surgery.

I think I have an ovarian cyst. After sex I had some light bleeding, is that a symptom?

Not likely the cause: Typically ovarian cysts don't cause bleeding unnless they rupture or get twisted onto their own tubes etc...Light bleeding after sex is quite common for those having a male partner who is a bit on the long-side--repetitious trauma of the penis pushing/thrushing on the cervix which can bleed a bit. If u have some cervical polyps, fibroids, infections, cancer, bleeding is even more common. Good luck. ...Read more

What is your opinion about an ovarian cyst affecting sex drive? Depression can, and ovarian cysts I read can cause depression. Is there a link?

What is your opinion about an ovarian cyst affecting sex drive? Depression can, and ovarian cysts I read can cause depression. Is there a link?

Sex drives & cysts: If the ovarian cyst has testosterone containing material inside it (male hormone) the sex drive will actually go up.

Depression is usually not associated with either case unless it Is secondary to chronic pain from a large untreated ovarian cyst. ...Read more

Pregnancy or ovarian cyst? Protected sex june 26, period july 9. Preg test july 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 31 all negative. Pelvic lower back discomfort, nausea.

Needless worrying: I think you already know the answer. But, here is what I read. You did not get exposed to semen and thus could not possibly be pregnant. But, you still did six pregnancy tests that were unnecessary since you did not get exposed to semen.... Thus it is not pregnancy. I don't mean to criticize but the reason you use birth control like condoms is to not worry like this. Right? ...Read more

Do you recall any strain type injuries of the lower abdomen or groin? Does your left hip bother you? If symptoms persist repeat evaluation and examination of these areas are needed. ...Read more
