Varies: You can do more iui's . That is not harmful. But after 4 of them the chances each time of getting pregnant will drop. I would assume you had an xray of your fallopian tubes after the surgery to make sure there was no damage from the procedure. Certainly you may need to complete an evaluation or reconsider treatment options in the near future. ...Read more

18 year old dtr has a 3.4 CM rt ovarian dermoid cyst (mri dx). First gyn will only salvage part of ovary if she does laparotomy. Second dr said laparoscopy- spillage not an issue. How to decide?

18 year old dtr has a 3.4 CM rt ovarian dermoid cyst (mri dx).  First gyn will only salvage part of ovary if she does laparotomy. Second dr said laparoscopy- spillage not an issue. How to decide?

Third opinion : This is a small enough cyst that laparoscopy should be successful. U need to find out how many procedures they do laparoscopically - more the better. Also ask about complication rate. U have to b comfortable with ur surgeon and it doesn't sound like you r at this time. Having one more option might ease ur mind. Try to find someone who does lots of laparoscopy. Good luck. ...Read more

Remove It: A dermoid cyst in the ovary needs to be removed before you get pregnant. A dermoid cyst does not interfere with you getting pregnant. Having a cyst during pregnancy increases risk of pain, torsion and causes confusion. Good Luck! ...Read more

I am 35 yrs old and I have a dermoid cyst   and  my period is irregular. Is there any other way to get rid of this cyst other than surgery?

Nope....: Unfortunately, you need surgery to remove the cyst. A dermoid cyst is a cystic teratoma that contains developmentally mature skin complete with hair follicles and sweat glands, sometimes clumps of long hair, and often pockets of sebum, blood, fat, bone, nails, teeth, eyes, cartilage, and thyroid tissue. Because it contains mature tissue, a dermoid cyst is almost always benign. ...Read more
