When I had a tubo ovarian abcess from strep last year it didn't show up on blood tests. Why? Even though there was a lot of pus and I needed morphine.
You should be Happy: Tubo Ovarian abscess is usually capsulated in chronic cases and the pus is not in your belly. Anything that is not acute and leaking may not show in your blood tests. Also, sometimes we get treated partially by antibiotics that we take empirically and the abscess becomes quiet for some time to allow the infection to remain silent till the abscess becomes huge or spreads to neighboring organs. ...Read more
Can having a tubo ovarian abscess cause you to get ovarian cysts? Never had them before had mass pelvic sepsis, now have them. Is there a link?
Well, a few things: Can cause pain. An ovarian cyst that expands the ovary rapidly causes discomfort. Severe pain, an emergency, is called ovarian torsion where a heavy cysts twist on the blood supply causing what we call an "acute abdomen". Lower abdominal pain is more broad.

Cysts and Pregnancy?: I agree that cysts can affect ovulation but they also sometimes make it difficult for us to use our medications. We usually do not want to use fertility meds when there are cysts. Most of the time we can wait for the cyst to resolve and restart meds but a few women have recurrent cysts and they are a real problem. Best wishes. ...Read more
No: Dhea is metabolized to cortisone, estrogen and testosterone -- and you can't control which one is goes to.

Very little: Cystadenomas are benign and do not develop into cancer. If they are larger than 5 cm, they can twist and damage the ovary, or they can rupture causing pain. Furthermore, until they are removed, the fact that they are benign rather than borderline malignant or malignant, is hard to tell with certainty. For the above reasons, removal is recommended. But once removed, no worries! ...Read more
