I'm just wondering if anyone else has had the same issues with these as me.
I'm 22, and I've had problems with recurrent simple and complex ovarian cysts since I was 15.
I've had 5 laparoscopies to drain cysts, and more that have ruptured, or been reabsorbed after a few cycles.
The first 3 that were surgically drained were haemorrhagic corpus luteum cysts that were causing a lot of pain and showed no signs of reabsorbing or shrinking.
The last two were in Jan and June this year. Both started as one sided lower back pain, with nausea and dizziness. They were haemorrhagic septated cysts that were 'leaking' blood and causing a heap of pain. Neither were particularly large (6 x 7 and 5 x 5), but my gynaecologist was concerned that they could be cancerous and removed to test as well as relieve the symptoms.
Now, I've had lower back pain for the last few weeks, frequent urge to urinate and dizziness so I had another us this morning. I have one simple follicular cyst (3 x 3 cm) on my left ovary and another haemorrhagic septated cyst on my right ovary (6cm x 8cm).
I know I'm probably in for another laparoscopy, but I really want to find a way to stop these occurring. The best my gynae has is the pill (I've been on it for six months and had two diagnosed cysts in that time) and an implanon.
Has anyone else had reoccurring problems with ovarian cysts? Did you ever find a way to stop them apart from an oopherectomy? They're so painful, and disrupt my life so much!
