What are my chances my ovarian cyst grow bigger over time during my pregnancy? I'm 5 months now. Can it shrink or disappear?

Most stay unchanged: How large is your ovarian cyst? Most resolve after 13th week, but if you still have it at 20 weeks it should be checked regularly for growth. Most ovarian cysts do not change size in pregnancy and do not require any treatment. If you develop symptoms of pain due to the cyst or if the cyst significantly grows then you might need surgery to remove it. Most surgery is done prior to 20 weeks.

How likely is it for an 8cm ovarian cyst to go away on it's own in the first trimester of pregnancy?

Unlikely: Its unlikely that it will go away, but it's also unlikely that it will cause a problem. The most concerning risks are torsion or rupture. Cancer is also a risk but very unlikely. Typically these cysts are followed intermittently with ultrasound during pregnancy. If you end up with a c/s, your doctor can look at it then and take it out.

A 4.0 * 3.6 * 2.7 CM ovarian cyst is on m right ovary. How big is that? Can it be dangerous during pregnancy?

Quite common: It is quite common to have an ovarian cyst in pregnancy.

Ovarian cyst during pregnancy causing lots of bleeding and some blood clots. How is this treated?

Ovarian cyst during pregnancy causing lots of bleeding and some blood clots. How is this treated?

Not a cyst cause: In general, an ovarian cyst does not cause vaginal bleeding during pregnancy. The usual causes would be an issue with the placenta, a growth on the cervix, premature labor, for instance. You need to clarify with your doctor what the cause of the bleeding is to know how to treat. However avoid intercourse, heavy lifting or exercise for now would be reasonable.

Can an ovarian cyst grow in pregnancy?

Can an ovarian cyst grow in pregnancy?

Yes: Ovarian cyst are hormone dependent. Most of the time we see growth during first stage of pregnancy when the ovary is the source of hormones for the embryo. At aprox 10 wks. The placenta takes over hormone production and the pregnancy becomes independent of the ovary and this is when we expect the cyst to shrink. Nevertheless ovarian chat should have close f/u during pregnancy.
