Sex After Ovarian Cyst Removal
No effect: We usually tell patients to have sex when they feel like it. The laparoscopic route might requires 3-5 days while laparotomy or open surgery might require 7-14 days. There is no real required limitation. Would check with your surgeon for their specific recommendation based on your particular surgery.
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
Not long: I tell most patients, as soon as they feel like it. Usually 7-14 days or so. Depends though on your surgery type and would go on the recommendations of your physician.
What did you surg: Say, he is the one who oid the surg, and knows what you had, and how the surgery went, you should ask this? To your doc, that is part of your post op care.
I had sex after 3 weeks after my lap for ovarian cyst removal, I have a mirena (levonorgestrel) and now there is blood and spotting, in servere pain. Is it normal?
No: Sometimes IUD's can produce spotting, but the severe pain is not normal and bears investigation by your operating surgeon.
Varies: Depends on your motivation and your requirements at your job. If lifting is involved, most recommend 6 weeks. If not, it really is up to you as to when you return to work. In our experience, the minimum is 7 days or so. Might produce pain but will not damage the surgery outcome.
Yes: Spotting is normal and common after surgery to remove an ovarian cyst. During the surgery usually an instrument is placed on the cervix so the uterus can be moved to get to the cyst, and that can cause a few days of light bleeding. Occasionally the stress of surgery can cause irregular bleeding.
Please ask the doc: Who did your surgery those specific? S as only that doc should answer, as your doc knows how the surgery went and how u are doing now, and can give u a definite answer.

With ovulation: With laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal (cystectomy), you usually recover within a week or two and ovulation may be as early as 2-3 weeks. If your tubes are normal & fertility wasn't an issue prior, you can achieve pregnancy as soon as you're comfortable. If you had a laparotomy, give it 2 months minimum to allow proper healing & comfort. Take Folic Acid if planning a pregnancy & good luck to you.
Is it true that you can have a raised temperature after ovarian cyst removal due to blood supply being temporarily cut off to the ovaries?
Haven't heard that o: One, if u have temp in the immediate or sometimes not immediate post op period u need to r/o infection somewhere in your body that is the #1 thing to r/o so u need to call the doc who did your surgery to see if u need evaluation or to be put on antibiotics.
May not need removal: The vast majority of ovarian cysts during reproductive life come and go on their own. There are various types of physiologic cysts like this. If it is a dermoid cyst or a benign tumor, it may need to be removed surgically. Rarely a malignant cystic tumor can be the problem, requiring surgery. Its extremely important to determine what it is, as best as possible, before deciding about removal.
Kinda: A radiologist or obgyn could use ultrasound to pass a needle through your abdominal wall to attempt to drain it. This could be done in the office under local anesthesia.
Varies: Depends on your motivation and your requirements at your job. If lifting is involved, most recommend 6 weeks. If not, it really is up to you as to when you return to work. In our experience, the minimum is 7 days or so. Might produce pain but will not damage the surgery outcome.See 1 more doctor answer
Surgical Approach: An ovarian cyst removal is a surgical procedure where a cyst is removed from the ovary while not removing the ovary.
Quick: If the removal is done by laparoscopy, usually complete recovery takes about 2 weeks but some women recover even quicker. However you can resume most normal activities 3-4 days after the procedure.
Yes: During reproductive age cysts are very common. Most women would have something considered a cyst at least once per year but would never know unless an x-ray test was performed due to pain. Often though the pain is completely separate from the cyst. The follicle (a cyst) that is the growing egg each month grows to 2-3 cm and ruptures each month. Cyst rupture is normal! Cysts unusually cause pain.
