    Yeah I am going to find another doctor as this dr is not my regular. I live in rural area and unfortunately most of the gps are temp and move on pretty quickly. It's frustrating.

    Cysts are pretty common, if the doc is talking about your ovaries.
    I have had one on mine almost every scan I have had, and the last sonographer said something about them "helping the pregnancy", although the specifics of this were not discussed at the time.

    I've learnt to take it all with a grain of salt, and do my own research (peer reviewed journal articles as opposed to Web MD etc).
    For example, my last scan, performed by a high risk obstetrician, showed I have a teardrop shaped yolk sac. He implied that I shouldn't start treatment until after my next scan (I have fortnightly monitoring for growth restriction).. he didn't say it, but there was heavy implication on a higher risk of miscarriage due to the sac being an odd shape.
    I left feeling disheartened.
    But upon researching I found that a comprehensive study was done on a few hundred women, and the miscarriage rate for odd shaped sacs was actually slightly lower.

    This is not in any way to make this about me.. only to make a point that their responses are not always ok, not always thought out.. but most importantly not always correct!

    Pregnancy is a highly emotive experience, even without the onslaught of hormones. We pregnant ladies need to be as stress-free as possible!
