I'm on my first month of LoEstrin Fe to dissolve an ovarian cyst.  I'm on day 22 of my normal cycle but day 11 of the pill.  I'm spotting.  Normal?

Can be: Normally we like to start pill on first day of period, but not always practical. The dose of the pill may not be high enough to offset your body's normal cycle and that could explain the spotting. The pill may blunt your normal period resulting in less bleeding than normal. I am assuming your gyn doctor recommending several cycles of pill. If issue continues, discuss with them. Change pill? ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

I am on loestrin 24 fe for about a year with sometime no period or just light. Also this month pain on right side - could it be ovarian cysts?

I am on loestrin 24 fe for about a year with sometime no period or just light. Also this month pain on right side - could it be ovarian cysts?

Pelvic pain: Given that you are on birth control, the chance of ovarian cysts and pregnancy are certainly decreased. First, the lighter or absent periods is common on the pill. Second, the lower dose pills might be associated with less effective suppression of cyst formation. You need to perform a pregnancy test, and if your pain is significant, you need to contact your doctor for an exam and ultrasound! ...Read more

I'm 47, in perimenopause, had burst ovarian cyst. Dr wants me to take Lo Loestrin FE 1-10 for 6 months. Is it safe? Have no risk factors, but PSVT.

I'm 47, in perimenopause, had burst ovarian cyst. Dr wants me to take Lo Loestrin FE 1-10 for 6 months. Is it safe? Have no risk factors, but PSVT.

Unclear why/not safe: Your real, significant risks in taking contraceptive pills at this point in your life (age 47, cardiac arrhythmias...) seem to outweigh the minimal, questionable benefits of suppressing your ovulation (OCPunfortunately will not be effective in preventing another ovarian cyst)Depending on the "pathology of your burst ovarian cyst" which I presume was removed surgically, recurrence is unlikely. ...Read more

I have 3 small fibroids and a few small fluid filled ovarian cysts Would switching from Sprintec 28 to Lo Loestrin FE affect the size of the fibroids?

I have 3 small fibroids and a few small fluid filled ovarian cysts Would switching from Sprintec 28 to Lo Loestrin FE affect the size of the fibroids?

Maybe, maybe not: All oral contraceptive pills contain small amounts of estrogen which can be absorbed by the uterine fibroids and sometimes enhance their enlargement. Some women with fibroids are unaffected by the use of oral contraceptive estrogen and the fibroids show no growth over time. ...Read more

Doc said i hv an ovarian cyst measuring abt 7x6x5 n need surgery. But is it possible if i don't want surgery?Cz im quite busy atm

You need surgery: You have a large cyst. Most cyst at your age are benign. However they can become very large and depending on the surgeon you my end up with a huge scar. Also cyst this size can twist on its pedicle( torsion). This is a surgical emergency. You might have a serous or mucinous-cysadenoma, or a dermoid cyst. Ultrasound should help to give clue what he is dealing with. I would favor laparoscopic surger. ...Read more

R sided hemm. Ovarian cyst 46.6mmx41.9x45.9 volume 46.9ml. history endoand decreased ov reserve n/v, pain how long does it take to absorb?Waiting to do ivf

It may not absorb: If it is truly a hemorrhagic cyst it should resolve in 4-6 weeks if not sooner. If it is an endometrioma, it may not resolve on its own and may require surgery to improve your ivf outcome. I recommend you talk to your reproductive endocrinologist about strategy here. You don't want to lose time if you have diminished ovarian reserve. ...Read more

Can ovarian cyst be treated n how ?

Can ovarian cyst  be treated n how ?

Patience vs. Surgery: Most ovarian cysts in young women are "functional cysts", which evolve from a follicle that you ovulate from, then grow and finally resolve spontaneously over several weeks. Birth control pills do not speed up the resolution, but do decrease recurrences. If the cyst persists then surgery, often laparoscopic, is necessary to remove the cyst and have it tested for cancer. ...Read more

You should be disc: Discussing this with your gyn doc, depends on what kind of cysts you have, you may need to get on continuous bc pills to prevent the cysts, if you have endometriosis you may need depo- Lupron (leuprolide) or further surgery so without knowing more details cannot provide other advice so you should make an appt with your gyn or go for a 2nd opinion, but if u go for a 2nd opinion make sure u bring your records. ...Read more

I have had ovarian cyst whch was removed.And. Had androgen imbalance too.I have neither nw ...What should I  do for facial n chest hair?

Depends on the cause: Unwanted facial hair can have many causes. Birth control pills can do it, as can medical conditions that alter hormone levels, such as polycystic ovaries. If you are taking bcps ask your doctor about changing to another brand; if not, ask about testing to rule out internal medical conditions other than those you've already ruled out. ...Read more
