This usually has to do with the onset of labor. It is a muscular tightening of the uterus. Contractions are timed from beginning to end of hardening of the uterus (duration) and from beginning of one contraction until the beginning of the next (frequency).

It depends: The common term to which you refer is a fibroid which are found in up to 70% of women depending on studies. If asymptomatic, as the majority are, they require no treatment.

Ovarian cyst: If it is a simple cyst, the ultrasound will be repeated in 2-3 months. If it is a complex (extra walls, growths, solid areas) cyst or a solid cyst, then there is a different plan. Tumor markers need to be drawn to see if a gynecologist or gynecologic oncologist should remove the cyst. ...Read more
Excision: I have to respectfully disagree with dr. Beard. While 80% of patients have pain relief while on lupron, (leuprolide) over half of all patients have a recurrence of pain within a year, some after 6 mos. Complete excision of endo can be done without removing any reproductive organs, and has a 80% chance of curing endo with no recurrence of endo.
