Very heavy periods and tremondous pain.  A 4x5 CM fibroid in uterus.

Consider surgery: If the fibroid is causing heavy bleeding and pain, you may need a surgery to remove the fibroid or hormonal suppression using contraception in order to help with your current problem. What matters is where the fibroid is...is it in the wall? Is it inside the uterus? I'd be happy to talk to you more about what's going on via consultation. ...Read more

What does this mean? "Fibroid uterus w/notable partially degenerated 1.7 cm fibroid in myometrium of the right uterine cornua. Atrophic right ovary"

What does this mean? "Fibroid uterus w/notable partially degenerated 1.7 cm
fibroid in myometrium of the right uterine cornua. Atrophic right ovary"

Interpretation: A fibroid is a smooth muscle growth in your right section at the top of your uterus next to the right Fallopian tube. It is in the process of "falling apart"(degenerating) which can cause bleeding and pain. The right ovary is shrunken (atrophic) which is common in post menopausal women. ...Read more

Nabothian cyst in cervix, 2.1cm cyst in right ovary. History of uterine polyp. Pain in left lower abdomen15dys, lower back pain+no period-what is it?

Nabothian cyst in cervix, 2.1cm cyst in right ovary. History of uterine polyp. 
Pain in left lower abdomen15dys, lower back pain+no period-what is it?

Multiple issues: Nabothian cysts are normal as is (probably) the rt ovarian cyst. The uterine polyp is more worrisome and should be followed (with ultrasound) to make sure it doesn't get bigger. The lack of periods could be related to pregnancy, hormonal imbalances or low body fat/athletic activity. The back pain can certainly come from the pelvic issues or can be the spine itself. Gyn eval 1st then spine eval. ...Read more

Which of these types of ectopic pregnancy: tubal, ovarian, abdominal, uterine(outside uterine cavity but still in uterus) is most viable for birth?

Which of these types of ectopic pregnancy: tubal, ovarian, abdominal, uterine(outside uterine cavity but still in uterus) is most viable for birth?

None: They are all lethal to baby and mother. There are extremely rare cases of an abdominal pregnancy being viable, but these did not start out as ectopics but 'fell' out of a ruptured uterus. Ectopic is not viable, end of story. ...Read more

TVUSG report says: "Bulky uterus with small subserous fibroids. Thickened endometrium. Small cysts in ovaries." Period late by 15days. Please advice?

TVUSG report says: "Bulky uterus with small subserous fibroids. Thickened endometrium. Small cysts in ovaries." Period late by 15days. Please advice?

Depends: I think the small subserous fibroids are a non-issue. More like an incidental finding. The rest (thickened endometrium, small cysts in ovaries, late period) can all be explained with something like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). If you are trying to conceive then you will likely need to see a physician for help with ovulation induction (using medications). Losing weight can also help. ...Read more

Can uterine polyp cause uncomfortable pain in the stomach?

Can uterine polyp cause uncomfortable pain in the stomach?

Polyps: womb: Uterine polyps can be pushed out of the womb by contractions of the womb, and the polyp may cause pains like early labor pains, or severe menstrual pains. If your cycles are normal and pregancy is not a concern, this may be "normal" on occasion. If this persists, see your healthcare provider for an exam and testing. ...Read more

GYN's Can large fibroids (3) ON top OF uterus cause Sunkening IN of Ankle?Could it be they are pressing on the ORGANS ?I'm Anemic due heavy bleeding

Possible: By "sinking in" of ankles , I assume you mean pitting edema. Large fibroids can put pressure on the large iliac veins that bring blood from the legs and feet. That can cause a backup of fluid in the tissue of the legs and ankles which leaves a temporary fingerprint when you push in on the ankle. There are other causes such as cardiac failure that you should have checked out by your physician. ...Read more

Do these endometrial implants or endometriosis act like normal endometrium inside the uterus?

Do these endometrial implants or endometriosis act like normal endometrium inside the uterus?

Not exactly: Although endometriosis tissue has the same components as the endometrium the behavior is different. Inside the uterus, the lining sheds itself monthly in an organized way. Endometriosis on the contrary, results in a festering inflammation that can cause pain, infertility and adhesions. ...Read more

Subserosal myoma of 25*23 mm in anterior wall fundus of uterus and bilateral polycystic overies can effect in pregnancy.

Depends: If already pregnant not very likely that a small myoma on the outside of the uterus will cause problems. The polycystic ovaries may contribute to infertility or problems with ovulation but unless the cysts are large they should not cause a problem in pregnancy. ...Read more

Can MRI of pelvis detect uterine fibroids?

Yes: Mri is very good for detection of uterine fibroids. It can determine the size & locations of the fibroids. It can show if the fibroid is degenerated or active, particularly if used with contrast. Mri can be used to guide fibroids treatment, particularly with regards to uterine fibroid embolization which is less invasive than surgery. ...Read more

Pelvic ultrasound(trans-veg.)shows-acutely anteverted smallish uterus-47X32X46 mm. right ovary looks endometriotic& a haemorrhagic cyst18mm-is it bad?

Pelvic ultrasound(trans-veg.)shows-acutely anteverted smallish uterus-47X32X46 mm. right ovary looks endometriotic& a haemorrhagic cyst18mm-is it bad?

See your provider: This sounds like a normal size uterus and normal size ovary. Endometriomas are ovarian cysts which contain old blood in them. 18 mm is pretty small. If you haven't had it, you might still benefit from a laparoscopy to look for and treat endometriosis especially if you have 4 years of infertility. You might also need reproductive endocrinologist (infertility specialist) if you haven't already. ...Read more
