Can a 2cm ovarian cyst on rt side cause sharp intermitten pain along with nausea and vomiting off and on? Appendix showed normal.

Not Likely: Each month, ovulation causes the development of a dominant follicle that may measure 2-3 cm in size. This is a normal activity for the ovary. Larger cysts or a ruptured cyst could cause the symptoms you mention. Pelvic infection also could. You should see your doctor for evaluation if you have had the symptoms for a while. ...Read more

Can the morning after pill cause an ovarian cyst and cause it to burst? Took it 5 days ago, and after sex I got a really sharp ovarian pain and nausea

Have an exam: The pill would not cause a cyst or burst one, but your pain needs attention. While there, get good info on this entire issue. Don't use that pill as birth control. Do use protection for STDs as well as pregnancy. Do learn how to take good care of yourself - it will pay off for decades to come. Best wishes! ...Read more

Took GF 2 ER for LRQ pain 11/30, Dr said ovarian cysts. Cysts gone but pain turning worse, no appetite, nausea. ER last resort? Meds not helping? Help

See a Gyn?: Can you not get her to a Gyn for an office visit? She needs further attention and an ER is great for acute emergencies but not long-term (or complicated) problem solving. As a last resort, ER again is better than ignoring it. ...Read more

Is a painful, 3.6 ovarian cyst bad for 32 yo after partial hysterectomy in April2015? Spotting, nausea, pressure, low appetite, fullness, freq. Urination

Is a painful, 3.6 ovarian cyst bad for 32 yo after partial hysterectomy in April2015? Spotting, nausea, pressure, low appetite, fullness, freq. Urination

Bad versus good: An documented ovarian cyst that produces pressure is not uncommon. However you don't say if the cyst is 3.6 centimeters or inches. Moreover, your symptom complex with urinary frequency, and vaginal spotting post hysterectomy indicate a need to be examined more thoroughly to rule out something else by your MD including bowel or urinary tract issues. ...Read more

14 days ago, got period 3 days late and lesser in severity. Experiencing cramps, nausea, dizziness. Feel I have an ovarian cyst but do hpt in case?

HPT: Will put you mind at ease. It always amazes me to hear that women say they feel a cyst forming because by all rights that should not be possible. Maybe you burst a follicular cyst when you ovulated, that causes lower abdominal pain usually on one side because it was the side you ovulated from and if bad enough some have had nausea and dizziness with that too. When you burst a follicular cyst blee. ...Read more

I have 4-5 cm ovarian cyst causing nausea and low back pain. Dr wants to follow up in 6 weeks with ultrasound. Should I be concerned it is cancerous?

I have 4-5 cm ovarian cyst causing nausea and low back pain. Dr wants to follow up in 6 weeks with ultrasound. Should I be concerned it is cancerous?

Unlikely: Lifetime risk of cancer is 1 in 60-90. Small odds. It usually strikes women after the age of 45. There are other findings on an ultrasound that can suggest if its a benign or malignant looking cyst. If your gyn feels its safe to follow in 6 weeks, that's a normal approach.

Pregnancy or ovarian cyst? Protected sex june 26, period july 9. Preg test july 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 31 all negative. Pelvic lower back discomfort, nausea.

Pregnancy or ovarian cyst? Protected sex june 26, period july 9. Preg test july 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 31 all negative. Pelvic lower back discomfort, nausea.

Needless worrying: I think you already know the answer. But, here is what I read. You did not get exposed to semen and thus could not possibly be pregnant. But, you still did six pregnancy tests that were unnecessary since you did not get exposed to semen.... Thus it is not pregnancy. I don't mean to criticize but the reason you use birth control like condoms is to not worry like this. Right? ...Read more

I have a 6cm simple functional ovarian cyst that is possibly causing bowel obstruction, heartburn, nausea, and moderate pain. Will surgery solve it?

I think: That the number of symptoms/conditions assigned to this 6 cm single ovarian cyst are just too many and, in my opinion, it is VERY unlikely that all your rpoblems will be solved by removing it!

My opinion only
