Yes,: Yes, if you have had an ovarian cyst in the past, then you may be at risk for having another. Ovarian cysts may not produce symptoms, and you may not even know if you have one unless it is detected during a pelvic exam. Since you are having an irregular menstrual cycle, it is prudent to see your doctor, especially if you suspect an ovarian cyst. Other signs can include bloating, abdominal or pelvic cramping, painful period, nausea/vomiting and difficulty urinating.

Depends: This depends on your diagnosis. Dysfunctional bleeding associated with abnormal cells found on a D&C would be reasonable as most gynecologic cancers can be cured if treated early. Removal for chronic pelvic pain is more difficult to assess. If medical therapies have failed some women may consider this option. Get a second opinion.

Does it hurt to get a salpingo oophorectomy done?

Does it hurt?: It would be awful if you were awake for this operation. Luckily you go to sleep. Usually pain is very limited after the surgery, but this also depends on why your ovaries are being removed. Studies now suggest that unless there is good reason, leaving the ovaries in place may optimize your health unless there is medical necessity to remove both the tubes and the ovaries.

What can I expect having a salpingo-oophorectomy?

Depends: Depends on how it's done. Done laparoscopically (through small incisions) in your abdomen, recovery will be easier. If you're premenopausal (still getting a period), ovarian removal will put you into immediate menopause, likely causing common symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, emotional lability, vaginal dryness, etc. You'll want to talk with your obgyn about how to manage this.
