I have a large ovarian cyst. My OBGyn says it is the size of a grapefruit. I forgot to ask is it ok to exercise? I don't want it to rupture.

Okay to exercise: Usual exercise is not likely to affect the cyst. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Read more

I have been bleeding for 4 weeks now and found out I have a large ovarian cyst. How long will it take for the pain and bleeding to stop?

Bleeding with cyst: It would take a lot more detailed information to be able to speculate about this. A gynecologist asks questions about your periods, pregnancies, pain, bleeding pattern, sexual history...etc...They can then give better advice about what may be going on with you exactly. Read more

I am 39 years old and just found I have a large ovarian cyst. I have major hip pain and its hard to walk. Could the cyst be the cause of my hip pain?

I am 39 years old and just found I have a large ovarian cyst. I have major hip pain and its hard to walk. Could the cyst be the cause of my hip pain?

It may be the source: Of the pain but you should get it evaluated. An intrapelvic lesion like a large ovarian cyst can cause referred pains as can other problems within the pelvis or abdomen. Back problems and hip problems cannot be ruled out as can occasionally knee issues present that way as well. See an orthopaedic surgeon for an evaluation. Read more

I have recently had my right ovary and tube removed due to a large ovarian cyst. How hard will it be for me to conceive?

Slightly: 1. You are at a higher risk of developing pelvic adhesions on the remaining side 2. If you are a cyst developer, then you should be aware that the same could occur on the remaining side 3. If natural conception doesn't occur within 3 months of trying, would suggest an active approach with an infertility specialist. Read more

What can I do for a large ovarian cyst and an enlarged uterus?

Does a large ovarian cyst and cervical cysts indicate a hormone imbalance & would that be excess estrogen? But progesterone high days I hurt all over

Does a large ovarian cyst and cervical cysts indicate a hormone imbalance & would that be excess estrogen? But progesterone high days I hurt all over

Ovarian cyst: If you have a large ovarian cyst this needs to be evaluated by an Obgyn to determine if needs to be removed or if it is likely to resolve on its own. The term cervical cyst is unclear in meaning. An Obgyn should evaluate this to determine if further work up is needed. Neither of these would lead one to suspect a hormonal imbalance. Read more

I went to ER with pain that resembled kidney stone. It's a large ovarian cyst (15.4 CM x 12.6 x 17.0). I have pcos, is this normal?

Cyst size abnormal: Gynecologist will likely advise laparoscopic unroofing, ; thereby draining the cyst. It's quite minimally invasive, specially in hands of an experienced laparoscopic surgeon. Read more

Please tell me, could pcos lead to large ovarian cysts?

Please tell me, could pcos lead to large ovarian cysts?

PCOS: Patients with pcos will typically have irregular and anovulatory cycles. The cysts remain small and are reabsorbed before ovulation. Therefore, it's unusual to have large ovarian cysts. Still, a cyst that grows without ovulation can become symptomatic. I would see your provider to find out more. Read more

What are the symptoms of a relatively large ovarian cyst shrinking or bursting please?

What are the symptoms of a relatively large ovarian cyst shrinking or bursting please?

Symptoms vary: An ovarian cyst can resolve on its own without symptoms. It can also rupture causing pain that requires emergency surgery. Usually surgery is not necessary and the pain is short-lived and tolerable. It is recommended that the patient avoid strenuous exercise because of the possibility of torsion of the ovary. If the ovary twists it can cut off its blood supply and die requiring surgery. Read more
