Not for here: This isn't a question that can be answered on the internet. This is a decision that needs to be made between you and the doctors taking care of you. If you would like, you can ask them to refer you for a second opinion. The choices here are very complicated and require a very complete evaluation of you in person along with all of your lab work, ultrasounds and other testing done. ...Read more

Isn't it to soon to get another ultrasound after only 1 month for complex cysts, will anything change? is there any other tests?

Complex cyst: If the cyst is most likely a hemorragic cyst, these are functional cysts that result from an ovarian follicle enlarging and not rupturing to release the egg as it normally would. They typically resolve in a matter of days to weeks so there is a good chance it will be gone in a month. Sometimes the follow up is 6 or 8 weeks, but 4 weeks not unusual. ...Read more

However, if a woman had sex on just one day during the month in question, then she can tell approximately when she conceived, more accurately than the ultrasound measurements.
