When I'm on my period it smells like something died. I have ovarian cysts and fibroids. What should I do and what does that mean please help?
It could be old: Blood or infection. If only during your period could be old blood or dead tissue being sloughed off from a fibroid that could be in your cavity. This is less likely. While it may be embarrassing, speak to your obgyn about this. You should be evaluated by pelvic exam as there are many causes of foul smelling odor.See 1 more doctor answer
Can you get ovarian cysts and fibroids without ever being sexually active? I heard fibroids cause heavy periods and mine are extremely heavy with clots
Yes but: Ovarian cysts & fibroid are both possible without ever being sexually active. But neither are the likely cause of having heavy periods are age 16. At age 16, the far most likely cause is imbalance in hormone levels or a genetic tendency to having heavy periods. A gynecologist can help you figure out the best option for treatment. This can include high-dose ibuprofen, birth control pills or others.
Very common.: Probably at least 50% of women have fibroids by age 50, and most women have had an ovarian cyst at one time or another.
A recent scan shows I have ovarian cyst and fibroid tumors. Can one surgical procedure take care of the cyst and fibroid tumors?
Yes: A laparoscopic procedure could likely take care of both procedures, depending on size and location of fibroid, in addition to skill of surgeon. Otherwise, they could also make a cut in the abdomen, like for a cesarean, and remove both as well that way. Again, all of this depends on the size and location of the cyst and fibroid. If the fibroid is in uterine lining, then a hysteroscopy better.
Symptoms of these 3: Ovarian cysts may not cause symptoms at all or possibly pain or pressure in the lower abdomen on the side of the cyst. I don't know of any symptoms of retained placenta, but there are clinical signs your obstetrician is familiar with that suggest it. Symptoms of fibroids include pelvic pain and pressure, abnormal uterine bleeding, and reproductive dysfunction.
Estrogen dependent: Fibroids and often ovarian cysts are estrogen dependent. Anything that lowers estrogen affects them but also will affect your overall health. Fibroids are benign tumors that can often be treated with minimally invasive therapy called ufe (uterine fibroid embolization). An interventional radiologist would perform this procedure. Check out www. Ask4ufe. Com for information.
Not likely: Ocular migraine also called eye migraine is temporary visual disturbances, completely painless, that can affect both eyes. It can transform into a migraine headache. Ocular migraines are believed to have the same causes as migraine headaches, but ovarian cysts or fibroids are not the triggers. Take care.
Pressure: The intestines are located all around the uterus and ovaries. So it's possible if there are fibroids or ovarian cysts, there can be pressure on the bowels interfering with digestion.
Usually nothing: Birth has little to do with other problems of the uterus or ovary. Sometimes fibroids can get in the way of birth or can cause pain after. Naturally there are many variables and a particular case needs to be handled by a doctor. For more info see webmd.
