Ritual outline:

  • Sit in a comfortable and relaxed position, with crossed legs and closed eyes.
  • Now visualise a beautiful pure stream of water, symbolical of spiritual energy and light pouring down from your Higher self [as a glowing sun situated about 5 feet above your head], flowing down into your head, through your body and exiting from your feet. Visualize this purifying stream washing away, all impurities and germs that are in your body. See all the pain, diseases, hormonal imbalances has been washed away. All the body germs, impurities and negative thoughts being washed out.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is the different to fibroid and cyst?
    Normally, I saw people posted – fibroids in the uterus, cysts in the ovaries. Other than the location, are they the same things or different type of growing substances?

    • ANSWER:
      A cyst has fluid (pus) inside it and a fibroid is made up of tissue. Cysts & fibroids can occur anywhere in the body.

  3. QUESTION:
    I have had four ultrasound scans in 2 years and results, normal uterus, cysts, normal, fibroid is this normal
    Up until late 2004 my uterus was normal. Then I started having irregular periods, I think I miscarried and some pregnancy symptoms didn’t immediately disappear, I went to see a radiologist a few months later, he said I had functional cyst and referred me to a gynaecologist, the doctor did a thorought test and repeat scan and found my uterus perfectly normal, my periods stabilised and for some seven months didn’t have sex. Then I started having sex again, the last time my period was late by a cycle, and like the last time I started spotting when it returned. I decided it will get back to normal on its own… but when I had a bout of severe back pain I got worried and went to see a doctor (a different one…. he sent me for scanning and the result; “2.7cm x 2cm single fibroid, no fluid aroud the pouch of Douglas.” What is the meaning of this – Why did he mention this pouch of douglas? Can the fibroid go away the way the cyst went away or could there have been an error here?

    • ANSWER:
      the fibroid is not going to go away but it is nothing to be worried about either. fibroids are bening tumors of the muscle cells of the uterus and about 50% of women will develop them. Yours is small and you only have one, nothing much to be concerned about unless it is in the lining of your uterus and then it can cause spotting, but usually a small fibroid like this will not cause much problems at all. Just ignore the remark about the pouch of douglas, that is not significant to any of your issues. they usually mention whether there is or is not fluid in the pelvis-this fluid collects in an area called the pouch of douglas- it has nothing to do with your fibroid or periods. you may want to think about the pill to control your periods if they are bothering you.

  4. QUESTION:
    3 Fibroid in the Uterus and 1 Cyst?
    Just visited the doctor and she found 3 fibroids and a cyst in my uterus, has anyone experienced this?

    • ANSWER:
      I have had numerous fibroids in my uterus, three as big as walnuts. They can cause painful and irregular bleeding. I was already in my 50′s, so she told me to chill and go on hormones at 55; that they would shrink away on thier own. I am not familiar with the cyst problem, though.

  5. QUESTION:
    I have a fibroid in uterus, and my left ovary is removed due to ovarian cyst. Can I conceive & get pregnant?
    I am married. I have four daughters. Now that I want to take a chance again. two of my elder daughters were born when I had the overian cyst (first in Nov’97 and other in feb’99) and that after the removal of cyst (it was removed in Apr’99)I have given birth to my twin daughters in July 2001.

    • ANSWER:
      My wife had multiple uterine fibroids prior to her getting pregnant with twins. So, obviously, we were able to conceive and get quite pregnant. The OB kept an eye on the fibroids since they were getting extra blood during the pregnancy and did grow quite large. There was concern that they could crowd the girls, cause issues with the uterine walls, complicate delivery by getting in the way, etc.

      As it turns out, they never grew too big .. the largest was about the size of an orange, I think, which is much smaller than the OB said they could grow.

      Since the girls were born, about 4 years ago, the fibroids never did return to their pre-pregnancy size. My wife’s uterus stayed the size of a 3-month pregnancy and the fibroids began to calcify and become very sensitve and she had a hysterectomy recently to resolve those issues.

  6. QUESTION:
    What’s the earliest week you can give birth to your child without them having any helath issues?
    Im 21 weeks preg and I have 3 fibroid cysts in my uterus with baby. Im hoping everything will be ok. Thank guys!

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, a baby can survive outside the womb after 24 weeks…but it’s chances are grim. A full term baby is 37 weeks and that is mostly based on it’s ability to breathe on it’s own outside the womb. My nephew was born at 32 weeks, and although he had to stay in the NICU for a month, he’s a perfectly healthy 3 year old now.

  7. QUESTION:
    No period, no pregnancy, one big cyst, fibroid and liquid in my pelvis?
    I havent had my period this month and I am so not pregnant. I just got a sonogram because I have felt this uncomfy heavy pain on my bottom stomach, its like its putting pressure on everything. Well it turns out to be that I have one cyst, fibroid I guess in my uterus and liquid in my pelvis or in my uterus I dont quite remember. I have to follow up with a gynocologyst but does this sound normal to you? Why isnt my period coming and what the heck is liquid in my pelvis or uterus? Is the heavy pain because of my cyst?
    Thanks so much!
    BTW I staqrted BC this week.
    I am also bloated.

    • ANSWER:
      Your period isn’t coming because of what is happening in your reproductive system. I personally have know experience with this type of problem, mine was ovarian cysts, but while figuring out what was going on with me I did a lot of research, I am not sure what the fluid will be, but fibroids can be very troublesome, you may have endometriosis as well as fibroids. If you want children, you are going to have to get this treated and under control, spend lots of time with your gyne to figure the best options for you.
      All that fluid is why you are bloated.

  8. QUESTION:
    What’s the $ costs of removing fibroid, cyst and mass by Laparoscopy or Hysteroscopy? FL and non-FL surgery.
    Ultrasound images shows that I have an enlarged uterus (10.4 x 5 cm) with a 8 cm mass that might be a fibroid. There are also a 3.7 cm cyst and a 9 cm “complex mass which is predominantly solid”. An MRI was recommended by the analyst.

    I am in the process of scheduling an MRI with a OB/GYN. The one I am referred to is not on my insurance’s “Preferred Privider” list, but he is the best in town. Since surgically removing the masses by Laparoscopic Myomectomy or Hysteroscopic Myomectomy is very likely, I am worry about the costs, my insurance will only cover 60% for out-of-network surgeon. Can anyone share their experience? The cost of:
    – MRI
    – Hospitalization and Surgery
    In short, how much is the total bill (before insurance reimbursement) to get the whole thing done and be over with?

    • ANSWER:
      Laparoscopy surgery is very safe nowadays. My cousin got her Hernia and colostomy surgery in India by a company called Forerunners Healthcare .The Price for Minimal Invasive and Laparoscopy surgery is very less in India. She paid 25% of the cost she was quoted in America.

      Forerunners Healthcare is very famous in India. They arrange Hernia, Appendectomy, Thyroid and other laparoscopy surgery for foreigners in India.
      I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and about their patient stories. They arrange financing for USA, Canadian, UK and other international patients who plan to have surgery abroad for low price, as the Hernia, Colostomy and other minimal invasive surgery is not covered by insurance. They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. There are huge cost savings. As a doctor I personally believe that surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of healthcare available In India is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.

  9. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:

  10. QUESTION:
    Is this a cyst or a fibroid.Please advice ladies.I am very stressed. I have been through a lot in last 10 mos.?
    I had cyst like pain in my left side 2 months back which started soon after my period.I have had left side ovarian cysts earlier and the pain was just the same along with burning while peeing.Always associated with cysts. Also since 2 mos when I am supposed to ovulate from the left side I don’t but from the right side I do ovulate.
    I had ultrasound done in June and there was no cyst but 2 weeks back after another ultrasound and the symptoms they found the cyst.
    The guy who did my ultrasound was a senior radiologist doctor.He started seeing with the ultrasound on my belly he first said there is NO cyst then after 2-3 mins when he came back to it he found a small functional cyst of 1.9 cm.
    He gave me pics of the ultrasound.

    Now what bothers me is:
    Why didnt he find the cyst at first could this mean its a fibroid in the uterus and not a cyst?

    I have spotting sometimes after heavy exercise, is that also a symptom for an ovarian cyst?

    I am very worried about the above 2 things although I acted crazy and went back to the doctor the next day and he said showed me where the cyst is etc on the pics and said with a smile why I am questioning his 20 yrs of experience in radiology. Now what bothers me is he’s not a gynecologist.

    I am so worried because I had a stillborn 10 mos back and want to start trying to conceive again and want to be sure this is just a cyst.

    Please help me.

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like a cyst to me. I have frequent pain on my right side and my doctor told me it was classic cyst pain. I get it any time during the month. I too had a stillborn 12 months ago, and a late (2nd trimester) miscarriage 3 weeks ago. Ugh, nothing seems to be working out this last year. But cyst or fibroid, I would think you could TTC again. Fibroids are difficult to remove, and cyst generally pose no risk to pregnancies. My doctor thinks my blood clotted in the placenta/umbilical cord in both losses. Nothing related to my occasional cyst.
      I hate it when people act all high and mighty when they are the “expert” on things. Your ultrasound tech shouldn’t have given you that attitude, but I think it’s not unusual for a tech to have to search for a little wile to find what they’re looking for.
      Are you thinking this is not a cyst but maybe something horrible like cancer. You would have other signs like irregular cycles, and such, but not necessarily pain.
      I don’t know if spotting after exercise is a sign of cyst. I usually have no mid cycle spotting, but my sister does a lot and she also gets the occasional cyst.
      Good luck with everything.

    PLEASE SUGGEST REMEDIALS AND METHOD OF SURGERY.
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ALL FRINEDS FOR PAATIENTLY READING MY QUESTION.

    • ANSWER:
      I am not medically qualified, but I have looked up a lot on the web since I encountered unexpected problems. Opinions vary; doctors and patients do not always agree.

      It depends how much pain she experiences and how much you both wish to continue marital relations. There are problems, which may not be mentioned to you, about removal of these organs, so unless the pain is severe and constant, I, personally, would advise against an operation, unless it is simply to check for cancer and does not involve removing any of these still necessary parts of the body – just in case!

      However the decision is your wife’s and of course yours to make. just ensure that you go into it with full knowledge of the facts, both for and against, as it is possible for an awful lot of information to be left out.

  12. QUESTION:
    how do you know if your pregnant if you have a cyst on one of your ovaries and fibroid tumors in your uterus?

    • ANSWER:
      I am sure a pregnancy test would tell still. Go to your doctor and have them perform one.

  13. QUESTION:
    What kind of problem can occur if you have enlarged spleen?
    I had a abdominal ultrasound test couple of days back. The report said that Igot a bulky uterus with fibroid, a cyst in left ovary and a enlarged spleen. I think I’ve to have aoperation for my fibroid problem. But I know nothing about the spleen problem. my question is how this problem occurs and what should I do to solve this problem.

    • ANSWER:
      There are a number of conditions that can cause the spleen to enlarge so not sure just what is causing yours. The biggest worry with an enlarged spleen is that it becomes vulnerable to rupture should you receive any kind of trauma to the abdomen. You should not play any kind of contact sports or engage in any activities that could result in a blow to the stomach. Ruptured spleens are common in car wrecks and a person can bleed to death from a ruptured spleen fairly quickly. Find out just what is causing your problem and follow your doctors orders to the letter.

  14. QUESTION:

SO NOW I AM STUMPED IF IT WAS LARG ON CT AND NOT ULTRA SOUND DOSE IT MEAN IT STILL MIGHT BE FIBOID OR A CHANCE SOMETHING ELSE MAYBE WRONG, BUT WHEN SHE WENT TO CHECK MY CYST SHE BLOCKED THE SCREEN????? CONFUSED HELP TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK. AND WHAT IS FIBROID IN ENGLISH?

    • ANSWER:
      What are fibroids?
      Fibroid tumors are usually benign (non-cancerous) tumors found, most often, in the uterus of women in their 30′s and 40′s, although they occasionally develop on other organs which contain smooth muscle cells.
      Fibroid tumors are solid tumors which are made of fibrous tissue, hence the name ‘fibroid’ tumor. Most often fibroids occur as multiple tumor masses which are slow-growing and often cause no symptoms.

      The size of fibroids varies immensely among women and some are so small that a microscope is required to see them. However some women experience a single large fibroid tumor the size of a grapefruit or a fibroid which is so large it encompasses the entire abdominal area. Such large tumors can weigh as much as 50 pounds; the largest, reported, fibroid ever recorded weighed in at 140 pounds.

      No one is sure why fibroid tumors develop, but some facts are quite clear– they do not develop before the body begins producing estrogen during the onset of menstruation– estrogen, such as in birth control pills and taken for menopausal symptoms, does cause fibroid tumors to grow and fibroid tumors will grow very quickly during pregnancy when the body is producing extra estrogen– they often shrink and disappear after menopause when the body stops producing estrogen–a woman will almost never develop fibroid tumors after menopause.

      The estrogen connection appears to be quite clear, although there are still some who doubt the role estrogen plays in the development of fibroid tumors because women with fibroids often have blood levels which reveal normal amounts of estrogen.

      Types of Fibroid Tumors
      Submucous Fibroids

      These fibroids occur just below the lining of the uterus and can cause menstrual problems, including pain as they grow and move around the pelvic area.

      Intramural Fibroids

      A round fibroid most often within the uterine wall which can cause enlargement of the uterus as they grow.

      Subserous Fibroids

      This fibroid grows on the outer wall of the uterus and usually causes no symptoms until it grows large enough to interfere with other organs.

      Pedunculated Fibroids

      These fibroids develop when a subserous fibroid grows a peduncle (stalk), as they grow larger they may become twisted and cause severe pain.

      Interligamentous Fibroid

      A fibroid which grows sideways between the ligaments which support the uterus in the abdominal region. This type of fibroid is especially difficult to remove without the possibility of interfering with the blood supply or other organs.

      Parasitic Fibroid

      The rarest form of fibroid tumor occurs when a fibroid attaches itself to another organ.

      Diagnosis of Fibroid Tumors
      Diagnosis of fibroids is generally made by your physician during your annual gynecological exam when your physician feels a mass, they often are found when your physician is looking for something else or may never be discovered if you do not experience symptoms. However larger fibroids may make examination of your ovaries impossible if they grow near your ovaries.

      An ultrasound scan is often ordered when such masses are felt by your physician to determine the cause of the mass, however some fibroids appear on sonograms as ovarian tumors and surgery is the only way an accurate diagnosis can be made.

      Although most fibroids cause no symptoms, the estimated 25 percent of women who do have symptoms may have abnormal bleeding, pain during menstruation, and as the fibroid tumors grow larger, women will often experience a swollen abdomen.

      Larger fibroids may cause frequent urination or an inability to control your bladder, either the ability to control the urge or in severe cases, a women may find that she is unable to urinate at all. If a fibroid extends towards a woman’s back it may push on the bowels, causing constipation and a backache.

  16. QUESTION:
    How did having a hysterectomie affect your relationship?
    I was told I needed to have my uterus removed due to a fibroid cyst that has increased in size. I am worried about how this surgery will affect my relationship and my selfworth. Please share your experience. (I’d love to hear a man’s point of view on this as well)

    • ANSWER:
      While I haven’t had a hysterectomy, I have had fibroids. I had them treated without a hysterectomy through a technique called uterine arterial embolization. There is another technique called myomectomy that is also effective, and probably better if there is only one fibroid.

      I encourage you to seek a second opinion – hysterectomy is one of the most over-recommended and over-done medical techniques around. Unfortunately, some doctors view the uterus as an unnecessary organ, and some view hysterectomies and a profitable enterprise. There aren’t many of those, but it only takes one doctor to make a decision that’s more in line with his or her needs than yours.

      I also encourage you to understand what the other treatments available are, and ask your doctor for a good reason why those treatments aren’t right for you.

  17. QUESTION:
    Retained Placenta, Fibroid, or Ovarian Cyst??!!?
    Looking for some advice from people in the health profession if possible. Here’s my story:

    I had a late miscarriage at 16 weeks May 31 due to a Subchorionic Hemorrhage that caused an infection of Pepto-Streptococcus. I was given IV antibiotics in the hospital and a week’s worth of Doxycycline at home. Since then, my body has not been right which I know can be expected, but I seriously think something is wrong. I stopped the lochia bleeding mid June and started my “period” July 9. However I continued to bleed every other day throughout July and was prescribed Provera to stop the bleeding. It did stop the bleeding, however now there is a 3 cm Cyst on my left ovary and a fibroid or polyp in my uterus about 1 cm big. My 2 periods since Provera have been nothing but spotting, and I don’t think I’m ovulating.

    NOW to the worrisome part:
    I have been experiencing a very strange pain on my cervix or in that vicinity; as well as the urge to pee often. I also have horrible increasing ovarian/pelvic pain. I’ve tested negative for BV, Yeast, and Trich. Is there any chance what I’m being told is a fibroid is actually retained placenta thus causing infection?? I’ve seen 2 doctors and I’m SO FRUSTRATED AND SCARED!!!
    Wanted to add: I would also like experience from someone who maybe has had retained placenta or an in utero infection or post partum infection. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      ummm, go back to the doctor, they would know for sure

  18. QUESTION:
    Horrible pelvic pain and bleeding 9 days post-op for endometriosis,DNC, fibroid, and possible dermoid cyst?
    I’m 30 yrs old, and had a exploritory laproscopy 9 days ago because of pelvic pain I’ve been suffering for several months. They did a DNC, and found and removed endometriosis. They also found a fibroid tumor on the outside of the uterus, removed scar tissue from previous surgeries (this was my 4th) and found a possible dermoid cyst in the ovary. 4 days ago, I strained lifting a box, got a terrible pain in my pelvis, and have been bleeding quite heavy and still have bad pelvic pain since. It’s getting worse now, the bleeding and the pain. I cannot sleep (it’s 4 AM). I talked to my doc yesterday, and he said bleeding and pain is normal after the DNC and such. I’ve had a DNC before, but I don’t remember the pain being this bad. I’d say it’s an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10, and the pain meds aren’t helping much (percocet).
    My question is, if this is normal, or should get this checked asap. The pain is terrible, and travels down to my knee, hip, back and buttocks. It feels like my ovary is about to explode! I’ve also been getting these stabbing like pains up through my vagina from time to time. It’s a quick sharp pain that only lasts a sec. but it so painful it takes my breath away!
    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Any ideas to help ease this? I’m doing all I can, but nothing seems to be working. I take the pain meds as prescribed, and have really been trying to rest and take it easy. Hot baths usually help, but that’s not even working. Not sure how much more I can tollerate.
    Thanks for any suggestions…..

    • ANSWER:
      This is not normal sweetie – did you tell your doctor about lifting a box? I have had the same surgery for endometriosis and was advised not to lift practically anything for two weeks after.

      You need to see your doctor NOW, or better yet, take yourself to the ER. You shouldn’t be bleeding this much now (I’d finished bleeding within 24 hours), and this is a lot of pain to be in nine days later. Go to the ER before you get any worse!

  19. QUESTION:
    Can you help me clarify this issue of tumors in breast and uterus and cysts on ovaries?
    I am about to have a breast biopsy. I have been told I have a large fibroid tumor in my uterus and I have large cysts on my left ovaries, too. I have had a lot of pain on my lower left quadrant and am having some bowel and bladder problems. I actually went into the doctor because I can feel the growths in my abdomen, can see that my lower left abdomen sits higher than my left when lying down and have become uncomfortable when sitting due to the pressure.

    My doctor last week wanted to start me on Depo Prov-era to shrink the cysts, but I read that that could accelerate tumor growth so, I called her back telling her I did not want the shots until my biopsy is complete.

    I don’t know what exactly is making me uncomfortable altogether, but am guessing it is the tumor that is putting pressure on my bladder right now causing me some problems there.

    They do not want to take out my uterine tumor, but wouldn’t it make sense to take it at the same time I have my breast biopsy? Can I demand that they do? What’s my best angle on that? Since that is what I want? My lower abdomen is so swollen.

    Also, how do they know that the uterine tumor is not cancerous?

    I am 47yo and have always been athletic, but now the discomfort I feel in my lower region is making me reluctant to even move… I am not ready to just sit on the couch! I want this taken care of, so I can go on with my life!
    zini, perhaps I mis-’termed.’ I am scheduled for surgery and I will be asleep.
    thank you, tru-man – you are a true gent!

    • ANSWER:
      From my better half Lady Avianasnowwolfe…A few years ago I had my entire uterus removed, both ovaries and part of my bladder. Why because my doctor gave me birth control pills to help stem the bleeding caused by fibroid tumors. What happened was the pills made the things grow to huge sizes and helped more grow. By the time I went to surgery I had one the size of a six month old baby!

      I had to have extensive surgery, as noted above, months of recovery, I lost large amounts of blood, they had to remove extensive tissue as the tumors grew on everything around my uterus and ovaries and bladder as well. It was horrible. Yes they gave me some Depo shots too and it did shrink the one big cyst I had…however it was extermely expensive and our insurance refused to pay for it!! 0. a shot!!!

      Unfortunately I had no choice…they could not do the surgery until the main tumor was smaller and I was dieing from the bleeding.

      So my advice to you first, get a second and third opinion!!! Never take the word of one doctor!!! Get a couple of opinons. It was the second doctor that saved my life. Actually, with an off the cuff idea. Yeah I lost a portion of my bladder… but Im alive…so it was worth it.

      I wish you all the luck in the world my friend!

  20. QUESTION:
    36 hour period or something else?
    So I’ve been having monthly periods for long enough, I’m 28, so I know my period can vary each time. I am currently ttc so this cannot be from the birthcontrol pill. Also I was at the gyno’s this past tuesday for a sonogram, I was having lower abdominal and back pain, I was hoping to find out I was pg but apparently sonograms don’t detect that kind of thing that early. I didn’t mention that I thought I was pregnant nor did he. He just said I had no cysts and my uterus and the uterin lining looked great! He thought the pain might be constipation and that I should be fine. Which makes it more confusing. I started bleeding wednesday, if you can call it that. The blood started very light in color when I wiped. About an hour later I felt a clot pass, and these were a maroon/black color. For the rest of the afternoon, ever few hours, I would pass a clot. I could tell when I was going to so I would go to the bathroom and wipe it out, tmi sorry. Clots are normal but there was no bleeding between. As evening approached it stopped and the next morning there was still no blood on the pad. I passed between 3 and 5 that morning and by 3 that afternoon nothing. I have had no cramps since the first day.
    Should I just say it was a weird period? Could I be pregnant and just experienced vaginal bleeding/decidual bleeding? Possibly miscarriage? What do I do? I already went through 9 hpts in the past few weeks so I can buy another but really don’t want to see another bfn, I last tested wednesday – day af due and day clots started. I’m embarrassed to call the dr cause I was just there and he saw no cyst, fibroid, anything that would be concerning? If you’ve had the same thing please share…. I’m in limbo!!

    • ANSWER:
      My best theory is that it was either a) a very light period (but have you had this type of thing happen before – ever?) or b) it was what is referred to as a “chemical pregnancy,” where fertilization takes place, but for whatever reason there was no implantation, which leads to shedding, like a period. One very important thing is that you tell your doctor you are ttc, because they can take precautions and give you advice. Best of luck!

  21. QUESTION:
    Hysterectomy and fat removal. Are these procedures possible together?
    I am going for complete abdominal hysterectomy due to a large fibroid beside my uterus and a cyst with my right ovary. I am about 25 lbs over weight and was wondering if it was possible to ask my surgeon to remove some excess fat from the abdominal region at the same time. If there is anyone who can help me and guide me if its the right thing to do, I will really appreciate that. I am 41 and would like to get back in shape after this surgery and since I would be under the knife and out, I might as well get done with it in one go. What do you say?
    Any comments and suggestions are welcome, especially from medical point of view.
    Thank you all.
    Anne

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe a doctor will answer your question. I doubt that this could be done for the simple fact that so much surgery may overtax your body and cause serious complications. It all sounds so logical but I think it would be too risky for you to do all at once. Also, it’s possible that the hysterectomy procedure might cause you to lose weight anyway, as the recovery can be difficult. Wait to see what happens.

  22. QUESTION:
    fibroid? cysts? help?
    I have gone to the doctor about this “lump” in my lower right hand side of my abdomen. He could not feel anything with his hands though. It really bulges out mostly after I eat, but I really have to be laying down to get a good feel. It is somewhat uncomfortable and sometimes the more I move or exert myself, it can be slightly painful. I think it has increased in size within the past 2 months and within that time I have been getting cases of hives too. I just feel really “full” in my tummy; like as if I was always bloated.I do not feel right and I do believe something is there and something is not right. I got an ultrasound done today. The lady, decided to do a vaginal one to, where they go and look from the inside. The doctor did not instruct this. She said it would help her see better. All went well, but she could not tell me anything; I have to wait for my doctor to call. That sucks.
    Anyways, why did she only look at the uterus and ovaries instead of where I told her my pain was? She seemed to only focus in those spots and seemed to be making notes on the screen.
    Do you think she found the reason.
    What might it be?
    Any ideas?
    I am 22 and have a 2 year old.
    No, vaginal birth.

    • ANSWER:
      Your symptoms reflect that you have Ovarian Cysts as Fullness in the stomach and pelvic pain are symptoms of Ovarian Cysts.

      But there is nothing to worry as Ovarian Cysts can be treated naturally and permanently without any medicines and side effects.

  24. QUESTION:
    My Dr. found 4 large fibroid tumors on my Uterus…Hysterectomy?
    I went in for an ultrasound, because I had severe stomach bloating, pain and cramps, and they found that I had a cyst on my ovary that ruptured. Well during my ultrasound, they found 4 large fibroids on my uterus (an inch or bigger in size each). The biggest one leans right on my bladder, which explains why I urinate so frequently, and also explains why I have such horrible menstrual bleeding with clots etc…..so I guess my question is, should I opt for a partial hysterectomy? I am 33 years old and I have 2 children (and am not wanting any more). Can anyone tell me if they have been in similiar situations, and what they did. If you had a partial hysterectomy, was it vaginally or thru an incision, and how long to recover? I run a daycare out of my home, and do not want to be off work too long! Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      I had one the approximate size of a cueball, like on a pool table (about 2 1/4 inches), and another smaller one. The large fibroid pressed on my bladder, too, and gave me pretty bad periods. My doctor had a wait-and-see attitude, recommending increased dosage of ibuprofen (3 times the package’s directions) and making sure I wasn’t becoming anemic through blood loss. The option of a hysterectomy was always there, but put off-able month after month. I, too, had my family complete and didn’t want more children.

      In the end, I didn’t get the hysterectomy, largely because the nature of what I do lets me dash to the bathroom often, and endure a couple of bad days every month. When I became perimenopausal, the big fibroid began to shrink. It’s down to about 1 3/4 inches now and still getting smaller.

      Ultimately, the decision for you should be based on how negatively it’s impacting your life.

  25. QUESTION:
    16weeks+3days pregnant, depressed w. relationship problems, advice?
    I’m 19 years old, ill be twenty in dec. My baby is due Jan. 17th 2012. I have a two years of culinary arts under my belt, literally just finished CNL, I work in a hospital, going to school in sept for pre med to please my father…
    I’m 16 weeks and 3 days along. With what I’m going to say I know many will judge but I need some advice.
    Tony is my babies father. It was a one night stand, I was drunk and depressed about a recent breakup. Tony and I have been living together cause when my family found out, they kicked me out. My mom passed away a few years ago, so my dad is very strict. Also my family is extremely religious, and my father doesn’t believe in contraceptives let alone pre marital sex. My sisters were the ones I would normally talk to about this but now we don’t speak.
    I have a ton of health problems to add to my stress; fibroid tumor on uterus 16cm, cyst on left ovary 7cm which causes me pain, tilted cervix pushing on my rectum, my last ultrasound they found a mass on my decending colon, irriatable bowl syndrom, acid reflux, cardiomyopthay, spinal stenosis, which causes major migraines that I can’t take my meds for..and I also had my bartholin gland removed due to reoccuring cysts.

    I met a guy awhile ago, his name is Brett. He just came home from the Air Force. He is overly accepting of my pregnancy. Brett, as well, is going to have a kid. His ex, he knew for a month, lives in alaska, which is where he was stationed.
    I really like brett. One thing wrong…I feel like he’s moving a little too fast. He wants to get married. Like in a month…..

    I love my baby, and have no regrets, I found the sex in a week, I’m beyond excited.

    I’m loosing my mind. I want to move back home, and my dad is thinking about it. He knows how much I’ve been home sick. My father has met brett, and they really got along. If I told my dad that brett wanted to get married, my dad would approve just because of our religion.

    I don’t know what to do…..
    Any advice???

    • ANSWER:
      You had a one night stand and got pregnant, so you’re living with him and want to marry another guy in a month?

      I don’t know if its your hormones or what, but SLOW DOWN. Move back in with Dad and think things through. You’re about to be a mother and your baby is your #1 priority right now – that baby needs stability and it doesn’t sound like you have any either.

      Right now, forget about the men and deal with YOU and your unborn baby. When you have your ducks lined up in a row (personal goals, carreer, steady income, a stable home for your baby, etc.), only then should you think about relationships.

  27. QUESTION:
    Looking for a ray of light from your personal experiences.?
    Hi
    This is not really a question. It is more a case of looking for advice from others with similar problems. I am really looking for encouragement and hope.

    We have been trying to conceive baby number one for 1.5 years. I am 34 and hubby 38. He had lymphoma 10 years ago and was treated using chemo. I have multiple sclerosis that is fully under control and I am fine. I am on Avonex interferon weekly injections.
    We recently visited the fertility specialist and this is where it all gets depressing:
    Husbands morphology of sperm is 1 %. Plus the few he has don’t swim well.
    I have a fibroid in the uterus, many cysts on my ovaries and endometriosis.
    I have booked to have the fibroids and endometriosis removed and the doc has us tablets to decrease or insulin levels and prolactin levels. As both showed up high on the blood results.

    So I am feeling very down in the dumps wondering if having a baby will ever happen for us.
    So I guess I am asking for miracle stories and some hope. As I have been praying like mad but can’t quite believe that so much is going wrong with us. I mean when are we going to get a break in life and start seeing rewards.
    So any of your own stories are welcome.

    • ANSWER:
      i am very sorry for your situation, remember never give up and never stop asking God for Miracle, i feel your pain and i will keep you in my prayer, god bless you!

  28. QUESTION:
    HCG Level & Confusing Ultrasound?
    Here is my situation:
    My LMP was May 2nd. I had intercouse on May 20ish. I missed my period on May 29th. I started taking pregnancy test on May 31st and for the whole first week of June I repeatedly got extremely faint posititve tests. I went to the doctor on June 10th and their rapid urine test came up very positive (the test line was darker than the control line) in 15 seconds and they told me I was indeed pregnant. On June 18th, I started cramping in my lower back. I went to the urgent care center and they said I might be starting to miscarry. Today June 20th, I had a pink discharge when I went to the bathroom so I decided to go to the ER and be checked. When I got there they did an abdominal ultrasound and were unable to detect a pregnancy. They did a transvaginal ultrasound and were still unable to detect a fetus, yoke sac or heartbeat. They did discover a large cyst in my uterus which they said was strange and possibly a fibroid. My beta HCG levels were 235. The doctor said that that suggests that I am only 2-3 weeks pregnant. What confuses me is that I had positive tests beginning 2.5 weeks ago so how can I only be 2-3 weeks pregnant? I also asked if it is possible they fibroid would cause elevated HCG levels and they said no, that is not possible. They then did a pelvic exam. The doctor said everything felt normal, looked normal and my Os was still tightly closed. I’m just wondering what might be going on here? How is it possible that I am only 2-3 weeks pregnant when I only had one instance of intercourse on the 20th? Is it possible that a cyst, tumor or fibroid could give a rising HCG level? Or is there a condition of pregnancy where the embryo doesn’t develop properly and causes slowly rising HCG? Also, my blood pressure has been very high the past week. Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.
    FYI: I did ask the ER doctor all of these things but she told me that because she is not a specialist in this field she could not answer those questions. She referred me to an OBGYN however they will not see me wihout insurance and my insurance is currently pending approval but my caseworker is out of the office for the next week.

    • ANSWER:
      ok first off is the doctor saying the baby’s is 2-3 weeks or is that the date of your last menstrual cycle? because they are both different. some doctors go by are ovulation time some by you LMP. But not to scare you I had this and a cyst on the ovaries. I know the cyst is normal during pregnancy but what gets me is that they did not see anything and the bleeding. Did they mention anything about an ectopic? That would be my guess. But right now I hate to say it you need to relax and try to take it easy, but if you occur any pain or more bleeding…..please go back to the ER and demand them take proper test to make sure the baby is where it needs to be, if it is not, DON’T let them send you home until it is taken care of! Good luck, Venessa.

  29. QUESTION:
    This is a cervical cancer related. Do I need to remove the uterus,ovaries, and cervix out? How much money?
    Doctors found I have cancer cells in 2003, 2004, and 2009 in the cervix. Also, I have 1 fibroid about a baseball size and a few calcium stones in the uterus. In the past, I’d a lot of problems with cysts in the ovaries.

    • ANSWER:
      You should contact your hospital billing department and get an estimate. Also check if you qualify for medicaid or medicare which would help with the bills a lot. You may not need a total hysterectomy depending on the extent of the cancer. You should discuss what needs to be done with your gynecologist.

  30. QUESTION:
    I can feel my uterus.. am i pregnant?
    I was at planned parenthood yesterday and the dr told me my uterus is enlarged but my urine test came out negative.

    I just tried feeling for it and i can feel it right above my pubic bone.

    my period is 2 weeks late (she said I can only be 2-3 weeks pregnant and that is why it isn’t showing up yet)

    I am VERY thirsty All the time! dry mouth! boating and crampy! tuesday morning I had 2 light brown specks in my panties. I lost 4 pounds in the last month.

    am I indeed pregnant?

    I heard fibroid and cysts CAN cause missed periods, but usually they cause heavy periods or prolonged periods… also weight gain, and I am LOSING weight.

    • ANSWER:
      If your period is 2 weeks late, then you would be about 5 or 6 weeks pregnant according to the 40 week plan that doctors use. And at that time, your urine test should show as positive unless your HcG levels are super low, but even the slightest amount in your urine would detect on a test. I would take a retest. The blood in your panties could be implantation bleeding, and alot of women often lose weight in the beginning of their period.

  31. QUESTION:
    What is likely to happen if you have fibroid that keep growing and don’t have them removed?
    I have fibroids that have grown over the past few years. Recently I have either 2 cycles a month or spotting. My gyn ordered an ultrsaound of my uterus. I have 1 cyst on 1 of my ovaries and my uterus is has grown to be 13cms. It should only be 10cms. My gyn went over some options with me, it seems that a partial historectmy is my only option. My gyn told me that the fibroids only get larger, they don’t shrink. What would you do if you were in my shoes? this is the second opinion.

    • ANSWER:
      I had multiple fibroids and they were growing really fast. Within 6 months they grew as big as 6 months pregnancy. They caused heavy bleeding during my period and it kept me so weak.
      I got pregnant with the fibroids and doctors removed my whole uterus just after the baby was born.
      if you don’t do anything with your fibroids for long time, they will cause heavy bleeding and for that you will have anemia.
      So get them removed.

  33. QUESTION:
    I am having laproscopic surgery next week to remove a dermoid cyst. Help!?
    I am 25 years always been healthy never any health issues until last year. In March of last year i decided to get off of birth control pills in Feb. i got off the pill and i never recieve a period for about 4 months. After several pregnancy tests resulting negative they gyno decieded to put me back on birth control to regulate my period. My periods have since then been somewhat normal. But a few months ago i started getting pelvic pain, swollen stomach. Dr. just told me i have a dermoid cyst on my right ovary thats about an inch. And a fibroid tumor on my uterus. How do they know its a dermoid cyst and not ovarian cancer? Also why arent they removing the fibroid?

    • ANSWER:
      The composition of a dermoid cyst is different then that of a malignancy. A dermoid cyst is not common, but in women diagnosed with them, they are usually detected during child bearing age. Check out the website I posted below. If you would have ovarian cancer you would have presented with other symptoms in addition to the lump.
      To answer your other question, you should really ask your doctor. However, I would guess they are not removing the fibroid because it is benign and it could cause more damage removing it than leaving it on. If you are trying to have children the doctor will want to be as minimally invasive to your reproductive organs as possible.

  35. QUESTION:
    Can you sue if you get fibroids on Both Ovaries after a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy?
    My mother had a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy with Attensive Lysis of Abdominal and Pelvic Adhesions five years ago.

    The surgeon told her that she had Total Hysterectomy. Today she called the hospital that has records of only the type of surgery she had – which is when she found out that she had a “Total Abdominal Hysterectomy with Attensive Lysis of Abdominal and Pelvic Adhesions”.

    My mother thought for sure that the Surgeon was removing Everything (he said the words “I had to remove Everything” out of his mouth.) – Ovaries, Fallopian Tubes, Uterus and the Cervix. But to her discovery, her recent doctor told her that she has Both ovaries and fallopian tubes, only her Uterus was removed.

    My mother went to this recent doctor due to the fact that she’s have severe pain in her abdominal and lower back area

    The recent doctor told her that she has Fibroid Cysts on BOTH of her Ovaries – they’re both about Four Centimeters large in size.

    Also, because of her thinking that her ovaries were removed, she’s told other doctors about this. This lead to doctors telling her to take Estrogen.

    The fact that her Own ovaries have been producing Estrogen themselves and her taking much additional Estrogen for over Four years can cause a higher risk for her to develop Cancer. – This is what Frightens me more than Anything.

    Could this possibly be a law suit case? Can you sue if you get fibroids on Both Ovaries after a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy?

    • ANSWER:
      No, because the doctor didn’t do anything wrong. The problem is based on your mother’s misunderstanding of what “total hysterectomy” means. And she should have shown her records to her other doctor, because then that doctor would have known what her surgery was and wouldn’t have given her estrogen, perhaps. It’s the patient’s responsibility to do these things. Part of the problem here, frankly, is the disrespect with which the medical profession regards women’s bodies. There’s an enormous difference between the ovaries and the uterus, and the impact on a woman’s body varies tremendously depending on what organs she has removed, whether ovaries&uterus, or just ovaries, or just uterus. But the medical profession still won’t recognize the absurdity of calling removal of just ovaries, just uterus, or both, “hysterectomy”. Sure, technically, they are supposed to say “total hysterectomy” for removal of uterus and cervix, and “partial hysterectomy” for removal of just uterus, and “radical hysterectomy” for removal of even more parts, but I won’t go into that because you can see what I mean already. So as you have seen, in practice, the situation is confusing. In practice, medical people use the word “hysterectomy” to refer to the removal of any combination of ovaries, tubes, cervix, and uterus. Usually the surgeon is clear on what’s going on for a given patient (but not always!), but I know from personal experience that other members of the surgical and medical care team aren’t clear on what body parts you’re going to have removed, or have already removed, and it causes problems, because they ask the wrong questions and give you the wrong impression. So you can see why it’s only natural that your mother was unclear, especially since at a stressful time, as surgery is, it’s hard to remember stuff, and you hear “hysterectomy” and think that’s the full story but it’s not. Frankly there should be a huge class action suit to get the fricking medical profession to take these concerns seriously. But that’s not feasible. OK, end of rant. Regarding your mother’s estrogen: the situation might not be as dire as you think. She might have already been approaching or in menopause, which may have been what led her to see the other doctor and take the hormones. While taking estrogen at such a time does VERY SLIGHTLY increase risk for ovarian and breast cancer, it’s not a huge risk. Also, taking estrogen when you have ovaries can partially suppress the ovaries so the ovaries don’t produce as much hormone. So you’re not looking at her having ovarian estrogen plus estrogen in pills. You’re looking at estrogen in the pills plus a reduced amount of ovarian estrogen, that all together isn’t crazy high. There’s no way to know for sure except to travel back in time and do blood tests of your mother’s estrogen. Though perhaps the doc who prescribed her the estrogen did test her estrogen first? She should request those records and check out if there is any blood test of “E2″, and see if it’s low or normal or high.

      Honestly if you want to make a difference, I recommend you write a letter to the doctor explaining the confusion and expression your hurt and anger and requesting that in future he always make these things clear to the patient.

  36. QUESTION:
    TTC, pain in uterus?
    i just wanted to give an update re: pain in my uterus. about a week before i ovulated and up to now i have been having pain that comes and goes and it’s right below on my navel and there’s pain on my left side where i think my ovary is. so i had an u/s done 2 days ago and now my dr told me that they didn’t find anything serious. except for there’s a small fibroid. they also found a small cyst in my right ovary and she said this can be treated w/birth control *w/c i don’t want if i’m ttc*. she said they didn’t find any remains from my previous d&c and that my uterus is clean.. nothing to worry about. also the pain that i have, it’s possible that it’s happening when i have irritable bowel as if a mass pushes towards my uterus or something (that’s how i see it). although i’m sad that i got a bfn this month, i’m really glad that nothing serious is going on with my uterus. but at least we can ttc again..babydust to all ttc!

    • ANSWER:
      We also are ttc. I have been having pain also but it’s for a week long at ovulation time. The ultrasound found nothing at all. I haven’t gotten pregnant either. So aleast they did find something for and can explain your pain. I am guessing the cyst on the ovary don’t keep you from getting pregnant! Well I wish you the best and hope you get pregnant soon!

  37. QUESTION:
    Is it normal to have slight cramping and brown spotting during early pregnancy?
    I went to my first prenatal exam last wednesday 7/9. I was told I have an ovarian cyst and a fibroid tumor in mty uterus. According to my LMP I was 9 weeks 1 d, but according to the sono, I was only 5w 5d with no apparent heartbeat yet. I am suppose to go back this wednesday 7/16 for another sono to check for growth. Is it normal to have slight cramping…more annoying than painful (kinda like a tingling sensation like a bladder infection) and brown spotting. Is this due to fear and anxiety because everything was going just fine until I started to worry when they said the LMP and sono are three weeks apart and this could be problematic. This is my first pregnancy so I am not sure if this is normal. I have to go back in two days so I don’t want to call because it is not red blood and it is not gushing so there is really nothing they can do. Someone please give me some reassurance or some answers.

    • ANSWER:
      Slight cramping is totally normal. I had really bad cramping, like 5 times as harsh as when my period was on its way, last week. Also, the sonogram and LMP being several weeks apart is probably normal because they usually go by your LMP which is what you tell them, but the sonogram is a more accurate way to determine the baby’s age, regardless of when you remember your last period being. Best of luck and congrats!

    This is the first time i’ve EVER missed an entire month (no period)

    The dr at planned parenthood did an INTERNAL exam and told me my uterus is slightly enlarged.. but the urine HPT was negative.

    So… Do Cysts/Fibroid caused MISSED periods???? My periods before this month have always been ON TIME and about 5 days long. Not painful either. If i did miss a period, the MOST i’d miss it by is 5 days and that is it!

    I heard fibroid and cysts cause quite the opposite as missed periods… they caused HEAVY, LONGER,and PAINFUL periods… and its not just out of the blue, it will be more than one month.

    Also let me add that tuesday morning I had 2 TINY specs of brown sticky discharge in my panties.. possible implantation?

    • ANSWER:
      They can – or they can do the complete opposite and you could experience a heavy period with large clots

      Could go either way

  41. QUESTION:
    Advice plz!!!!!! Could I be pregnant still?
    My period is exactly 2 weeks late today. I was at Planned Parenthood 2 days ago and they did a urine test (NOT First morning pee) only and it was negative. The Dr. also did an exam and she said my uterus felt enlarged, and that I do NOT have ANY infections.

    I have been VERY moody/emotional lately.. mostly towards my bf. Its ike I am so ON EDGE about EVERYTHING, majorly irritable! I am always VERY thirsty and my mouth is so dry! Also, I tend to have way more saliva than normal (I keep having to spit) and there is also some mucus going down my throat like a post nasal drip and its making my voice a tad raspy/hoarse/different… I am NOT sick with a cold or anything like that.

    Also, there are times through out the days here recently that I have stomach cramps but they aren’t like regular PMS cramps. My entire stomach gets bloated and firm! and also painful! Almost like gas!.. it only lasts like 10 minutes then goes away. This might happen 4-5 times a day. Almost like minor contractions.

    Tuesday morning I noticed 2 tiny specs of brown sticky discharge in my panties and that was it, only that one time. Nothing since.

    I just had sex with my bf 2 hours ago and it was quite painful (Stomach cramps low down by my uterus/cervix area, and also a bit to my left side)

    I am NEVER this late. I missed the entire month of June. If I ever am late, its by 3-5 days… NEVER do I miss an entire month. I don’t think its ever happened and I’ve been getting my period for 14 years. (I am 25)

    Does it sound like I could still be pregnant? The Dr. at Planned Parenthood told me that I very well could be from the enlarged uterus, that I could have ovulated later than I thought and that is why I am not getting a positive urine test yet. (possibly now I could) She told me to wait 10 days and go in for a blood pregnancy test if I still haven’t gotten my period.

    Also, I’ve lost a few pounds and I am eating the same.. maybe a LITTLE less.

    She said my uterus could be enlarged because of fibroid or cysts, but I looked both up and they both said that you GAIN weight with them AND your period is usually more heavy and painful.

    So, Pregnant? Possibly on Tuesday the brown specs was implantation?

    Advice? has this ever happened to you?

    thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you could be. I had a negative test prior to my positive because I tested too soon and it wasn’t first morning urine. I used a regular HPT then the next morning used an early results first response. Made a huge difference! Even then I had to call my hubby in to make sure he too saw the very faint line:)

      I didn’t have any spotting the first time. This last one I saw the tiniest blip of pink on my undies. Your dots sound like implantation.

      I was going to say that you could have ovulated later. Planned parenthood was right about that at least. I’m surprised they didn’t do blood test since you are so late though. I would also ask for a trans-vaginal scan. Those along with the beta count and follow up are quite conclusive.

      The thing is you know your body better than anyone else and you know something is up. It’s a strong possibility you’re pregnant. Make sure to do the follow up. Keep me posted if you can.

      Best of luck and blessings:)

  42. QUESTION:
    Fibroid Tumor and having children?
    My cousin has been trying to get pregnant for 3 years. She found out Monday that she has cysts in her tubes and a mass in her uterus. The doctor says he’s 99% sure its not cancerous. She told me that it was a fibroid tumor. Can this cause her never to have children or can it be taken out and everything be fine?

    • ANSWER:
      Only her doctor can determine how this will affect her fertility. Many people have had fibroid tumours removed and went on to have children so it doesn’t mean she won’t have kids though.

      Here’s a link with more info: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000914.htm

  43. QUESTION:
    Can ovarian cysts cause my stomach to bloat and pooch out?
    I started working out a little over two weeks ago. My stomach feels flat when I am done working out, but as soon as I eat something it bloats back up. I do have a lot of excess fat on my stomach and since having my appendectomy in 2004 the fat has dropped (due to the incision going down the center of my stomach). Anyway, I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) 10 years or so ago. I was also diagnosed with a 4″ fibroid on my uterus about six months ago. The doctor said it didn’t need to be removed, so I left it at that. But what is my stomach always so bloated? The only time it isn’t bloated is if I don’t eat any food at all.

    I was diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) about 8 years or so ago, but really don’t have any symptoms from that except stomach cramping, bloating and gas (especially in the morning).

    Will I still be able to lose weight and tone my stomach up even though I have the cysts and fibroid, or will my stomach forever stick out?

    • ANSWER:
      You will be able to hun its just harder for women with pcos i managed though. Just keep working out. Oh and green tea helps with the bloating.

  44. QUESTION:
    14 weeks pregnant, ultrasound yesterday and all is well, but..?
    The Dr said at the end of the appt that I have a “ball” in my uterus and it is nothing to worry about, that 40-50% of all women that this. The thing is, I am in France and even though he spoke excellent English he couldn’t think of the word for this ball that in French starts with an “m”. He insists it is nothing to worry about so I’m not at all, just curious what it is really called? Not fibroid, not cyst (I asked him all those, he said no), he just kept saying it was “a ball”. I didn’t see it on the ultra sound and he didn’t point it out, so it must be something only he would know to look for. If anyone knows that would be great, thanks!
    TOTALLY agree about things being different in another country. This is my first so I don’t have a lot to compare it to, but some things have me saying ” I have to do what??”, like going to a GP before I can see an OB to get a written proof of pregnancy, even though I already had an hour long ultra sound…. confusing :-)~

    • ANSWER:
      I dont know what to tell you about the ball.

      But I do want to say that its tough being in a country other than your home country and there being, even the slightest, language barrier. I moved from the US to Germany when i was pregnant with my daughter. I had my son in the US. It was really hard for me to adjust to the new ways they do things here. Im now pregnant with #3 and sometimes get really annoyed because things are like what Im used to them being, or what I think they “should” be.

Or am i just Crazy?? I’m beginning to thank im not gonna beable to get prego again! Thank You for reading this! Have a GREAT DAY!! :)

    • ANSWER:
      brown blood is old blood and this is probably just your body “cleaning” itself out after your period

      You should be able to get pregnant again = ]

  46. QUESTION:
    Is it safe to carry a child with a 6.8 centimeter cyst.?
    I have a 6.8 centimeter cyst on my ovaries that may have to be removed. I’ve had to have surgery before and I got a fibroid tumor removed that was on my uterus. Therefore if I have to have surgery again I want everything removed so there would be no chance of anything growing back. the thing is I want to have a child therefore I would like to know if carrying a child while having a 6.8 centimeter cyst in me would be a risk. I figure if I get pregnant and then I have a baby and have the cyst removed that would we fine but my problem is I don’t know if that would be possible. I mean I don’t want me or my child to be in danger at all what so ever. Can someone please help me out with this?

    • ANSWER:
      Ok I don’t want to scare you but this is what happend to me, I found out I was pregnant, then about 2 weeks later I stared having these really bad pains, I m/c because I had 6 small cyst on my ovaries, I know every women is different, but for me I was not able to have the cyst and carry a baby, my suggestions would be to have the cyst removed before getting pregnant so you don’t chance m/c, that was the hardest thing I went through, Good luck with everything.

  47. QUESTION:
    possibly ovulation pain?
    i have polycystic ovarian syndrome and also a fibroid in my uterus (which was just recently found). i have been having absolute horrible cramps today. my last period was either the 14th or 15th of this month (i’m not a hundred percent sure) so i guess maybe i could be ovulating. my cycles range from about 25 days to about 35 usually. anyways, i have never cramped like this before between periods. it’s been going on all day. not constant, but fairly often. the pain is enough to double me over for a minute or two and then passes. what could it be? could is just be ovulation pain? i’ve heard some people say they have pain when they ovulate, but i never have. could it be a problem with the cysts or fibroid? like i said – i have never cramped like this between periods. any ideas? i’m asking in this section instead of women’s health because i always get more answers here. thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I think one of your cysts may have ruptured. If the pain continues until tomorrow, you need to go to a gynecologist.

      In any other case, I would say it was just ovulation pain. But since you don’t usually get those pains, I don’t think that’s it. Especially since you have polycystic ovary syndrome.

  48. QUESTION:
    Complex Ovarian Mass – Endometrioma or Functional Cyst?
    Hi,

    I was hoping that someone could provide me with some advice. Below are my reports, this has been going on for more than 10 months. I saw one Gynecological Oncologist and she said that the reports show functional cysts (despite having them for 10 months) that will go away by themselve and no treatment is needed. That was last week.

    I saw another Gynecological Oncologist this morning for a second opinion and she said that they are Endometrioma. She has scheduled an Trans-vaginal ultrasound for Jamuary 21, and I will get those results from her on February 4, 2009.

    I am completely confused. I do not know which one to trust. Worse still – will these continue to grow? What if they are neither? My CA125 was 63. My father died of colon cancer and my paternal Aunt of Breast Cancer.

    My first report dated February 8, 2008 states:
    Endometrium double layer thickness is just over 7mm.
    The uterus is anteverted with overall diameters 37x40x76mms. There
    appears to be a fibroid subserosal posterior at the fundus 24x19x14mms.
    In the cervix, there is a little cyst 8mms.
    The right ovary is 34x28x22mmx. Here we find 2 follicles or a
    biloculted cyst with a thick septum, more likely that these represent 2
    adjacent follicles.
    The septation between the two are little hyper vascular.
    The left ovary is 30x30x28mms contains a follicle 13x8mms.
    The cul-de-sac is clear and the bladder appear normal.

    Report 2 dated Sept 22, 2008:
    The uterus measures 7.7×4.8×3.7cm. There is a fibroid at the fundus
    measuring 2.2cm. Endometrial lining is 0.4cm. In both
    adnexa there are abnormalities. On the left there is a complex
    primarily solid but inhomogeneous irregular mass measuring
    6.1×4.1×3.7cm. On the right there is one measuring 2.5×2.4×2.3cm.
    Sorry, should have mentioned that I am 37 years old, have never had kids, and got my period when I was 13. Symptoms: bloating pelvic tenderness, lower back and leg pain, headaches, constant need to urinate (sometimes a lot, sometimes a false call!) and extremely tired. Very heavy and painful menses.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi. Sorry to hear about all this trouble you’ve been having. I had ovarian cancer some years ago. Of course I can’t say what exactly is wrong with you, if two gyn oncs who examined you are both unsure what you have. So I can’t make any judgment one way or the other. But if I were you, I’d schedule an appointment with another gyn onc for a third opinion. You can bring your scans. It sounds like the second gyn onc isn’t too worried, or she’d have scheduled further testing immediately rather than in a month.

      Your symptoms could mean a variety of things–that’s one of the difficulties of ovarian cancer. Its symptoms are also the symptoms of many common and not terribly dangerous ovarian problems. Likewise your CA-125. This test, while used for detection of ovarian cancer, is actually testing something that rises in your body in the presence of any abdominal inflammation. So the things you currently have–a cyst, maybe uterine fibroids–could cause a rise in CA-125 all on their own, with no need for them to be cancerous.

      Good luck!

  49. QUESTION:
    Ovarian cysts… again?
    I’ve had 2 surgeries in 9 months. 1st was a fibroid tumor on my uterus, 6cm. 2nd was a cyst on my right ovary, 7cm resulting in the removal of the ovary as well. I went to my OB this past friday for all the same symptoms. He suggested a pelvic ultrasound and birth control. I could only get an appt. for the ultrasound in 2 weeks! I hate this, it’s messing with my life. I couldn’t wait, not 2 weeks working with pain, so I went to the ER. Tada. A 4cm cyst on my one good ovary. Can I elect to have surgery to have a histerectomy? And I’ve switched insurance. Will this be considered a pre-existing condition? I do not plan on having children. I have felt this way for years. The 1st surgery, my doctor wanted to give me time to think. It’s been 2 years, and I’d rather have my health than a baby.

    • ANSWER:
      The choice to have or have not a hysterectomy is only your. Having a total hysterectomy i.e. remove not only your uterus but your one left good ovary might result in menopause symptoms like hot flashes and other problems. You might consider leaving part of the ovary to prevent you from going into a difficult menopausal period, though have no idea how old you are. As to the insurance you better find out before or postpone your surgery till you have all the facts before you. Good luck.

  50. QUESTION:
    Dull, aching pain in cervix/uterus area?
    I’m not asking “Am I pregnant”. I’m asking if this sounds like it’s even a possibility or if I should be worried about something serious/dangerous.

    I’m 21, in very good health, I get annual pelvic exams/pap smears, and I am trying to get pregnant with my husband. The soonest dr’s appointment I can get is May 26th and I have one of the best doctors in town, so I suppose it is worth the wait. Also, our insurance won’t cover another exam until next month anyway (long story for another time).

    I’m day 20 of my cycle. On day 12, I had excruciating cramps (like menstrual cramps on steroids). These hurt so bad I couldn’t talk, move, eat, or do anything. My husband almost took me to the hospital. That day was when I made the doctor’s appointment. I have not had that pain sense then. Maybe I had a cyst or something.

    Anyway, I’m at day 20 of my 28 day cycle. For the past couple of days, way up in my vagina, like… into my uterus or something… I keep getting these bad dull achey pains. They’re not anything like period cramps. It’s just pain. I notice it especially when I stand up after sitting for a while. Along with this pain came abundant CM like I get right before my period.

    I googled “dull achy uterine cramps” and all it pulled up was post-partum related and fibroid related. Any other ideas? (Since I’ve never had a baby).
    To put it very literally…. I feel like my uterus is going to just fall out on the floor when I stand up sometimes today– especially after I pee. =( Ouch…

    • ANSWER:
      There are a few things it could be. First it could be an ovarian cyst. They hurt like no other and they hurt the worst right before they explode. GAH! Been there done that. However there could be some underlying issue as well. I would suggest you call your ob office and talk to them. You could have a uteran infection. What type of BC did you use if any? There are several causes for that kind of pain. It sounds more to me like you have a sever uti since your uterus and your bladder sit right on top of each other. Go get a UA don at your doctors. Good luck hon. I hope you get what you want soon. :)
