Ovarian Cysts That Are Not Estrogen Producing
I am a 43 yo non smoker with an ovarian cyst. Which pill is best a pop or estrogen/progestin? Or are there other options?Thank you.
All are fine: Ovarian cysts are common and while they are more frequently associated with progestin only pills, if you are healthy any of these options ( including a nuvaring, nexplanon, iud, as well) are fine. The best birth control option is the one that you feel comfortable with, tolerate, and you will use correctly. Good luck. ...Read more
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. 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
What is the best (type of) oral birth control to help with the occurrence of ovarian cysts? Estrogen progesterone ratios and such....
Combined OCP: There is not a great answer to this question. Many types of ocp's can be helpful in preventing large cysts from forming. However, this is not a fool proof treatment either. Many people will still develop cysts. I would recommend trying any combined tri or mono-phasic pill either to a cyclic fashion (monthly or quarterly periods) or in a continuous fashion (skipping periods) to see what works for u. ...Read more
Day-3 ultrasound shown a 6.4cm by 4.3cm ovarian cyst. Doctor said my estrogen level is 106 and so I can start Clomid 75mg. Good to start? or wait?
I would not: start a patient of mine under these conditions, but your doctor may have different approach with different reasoning. You should ask your doctor to clarify if you are uncomfortable with the decision to start. ...Read more
Can you have normal testosterone and estrogen levels with multiple ovarian cyst and still be considered to have pcos?
Yes: Pcos is a clinical syndrome. It is not diagnosed by blood test results, though high male hormone levels, or other tests suggestive of Insulin resistance, can support the diagnosis. If you have problems with irregular periods, weight gain, excess hair growth, you can be diagnosed with pcos, despite normal lab results. ...Read more
42 yrs old, still cycling, with simple ovarian cyst that slowly grows (@4cm) & history of PCOS. Dr said total estrogens of 545 is normal? Not high?
Ovarian cysts: At 42, the ovaries require more stimulation to achieve a release of an egg (ovulation). Sometimes the egg does not rupture the follicle (small fluid filled area around the egg before ovulation) and a persistent cyst results. At "4 cm." it will eventually rupture and pain will result temporarily. With PCOS you may be better taking low dose oral contraceptives. Ask your doctor to consider this. ...Read more
Follow up 1 cycle: The cysts are probably unimportant incidental findings - "ovaries make cysts for a living" - but 36 mm is significantly larger than expected in a normal cycle. If you took prescription fertility meds, this "might" explain. Not to worry, but after your next period you should have the cysts checked with ultrasound: 95% of these should go away in 1-3 cycles. If not, you may need other intervention. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
