Q: 

A: Hi, Welcome to ehealthforum, The symptoms that you describe do suggest possibility of endometriosis, adenomyosis, pelvic adhesions, severe PID, etc. These at times, cannot be picked up by the usual imaging techniques, and a laparoscopic examination done is helpful as the same session can be utilized to remove/excise the adhesions or endometrial implants/growths if visualized during the procedure. Wait for your investigation results and visit your treating gynecologist for further evaluation. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by examination findings & investigation results. Hormonal regression therapy for endometriosis also helps to prevent recurrence (but is not advised if you intend to get pregnant). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Be in...


Q: 

A: Hi, Welcome to ehealthforum, When bleeding occurs within a cyst, it is known as Hemorrhagic cyst. If the hemorrhagic cyst is in the ovary, then it could be serious. Confirm with your gynecologist and with your investigation results the location of the cyst. The type of approach in treatment would depend on the location of the cyst and the complications that can arise due to its rupture. If it is just an ovarian cyst that has ruptured (small one without any alarming or serious consequences), then it can be left alone. Presence of free fluid in pelvis also suggests possibility of PID, rupture of

Q: 

Has anyone had a hysterectomy me? If so- what was recovery like and what were some of the challenges?

A: I would try every avenue possible (including a second opinion and laparoscopic surgery – thru the belly button) before having a hysterectomy. Far too many are being done, I understand. You will go into instant menopause, lose all your estrogen and libido without Hormone Replacement Therapy. That has side effects and attendant serious long-term risks. You are messing with Mother Nature; why not have your SO get his tubes tied? I had the laparoscopy over 15 years ago to check- it turned out to be a small fibroid rather than ovarian cyst. The fibroid disappeared after menopause. If you are with someone for the long haul and don''t have to worry about STD''s, use the trusy old diaphragm for birth control. this isn''t a matter of birth...


Q: 

Negative blood and urine pregnancy test w/ ultrasound showed

A: It doesn''t seem that you are pregnant because your pregnancy tests are all negative. As you experienced you last period on the 22nd of July, all sexual intercourse before that date are irrelevant; you could not have conceived before July 22. The “pregnancy symptoms” you notice are probably due to excessive hormones produced by the functionally active ovarian cyst. You may not be able to conceive while the ovarian cyst is still present and active because excessive hormones produced by cysts can prevent ovulation....


Q: 

I have been taking microgestin for about a year. I was switched from Loestrin to microgestin d/t cost. I was initiallystarted on the loestrin d/t abnormally long periods (3-4 weeks). I have never had breakthru bleeding w/ the pill butnow, i have been b

A: Hello,Welcome to the forum. I can very well understand your concern. The bleeding that you are having seems likebreak through bleeding. It is the type of bleeding that occurs when taking hormonal oral contraceptives(OC?s), switching the brands of oral contraceptives and may also be caused by hormonal effects of ovulation.Breakthrough bleeding may also itself be a symptom of pregnancy (contraceptive failure). Microgestin pillshave abdominal pain as its common side effect but this does not rule out other possibilities. The bleeding andright lower quadrant abdominal pain can be due to ovarian cysts or fibroids as you are suspecting. The otherpossibilities are bowel obstruction, pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, kidney...


Q: 

Anyone with time have good answers? Scared? Worried?

A: I don't think your girlfriend is pregnant, so that should be a little bit of a stress relief. It sounds like she's stressed or got an ovarian cyst which may have burst. Being stressed out with cause a girl's period to get a little whacky, but it usually evens itself out once the stress goes away. However, because of the cramping in her side, she may have an ovarian cyst which would also cause an irregular period and it sound like it may have burst. However if it burst she would definitely know. It is pain comparable to child birth. I could barely move without wanting to scream. If you both are really worried about her having a cyst and the possibility...


Q: 

Raspberry tea

A: Hello Lynnsie, Thank you for your question. If you are looking for an alternative to Raspberry Tea, it is a good idea to avoid herbs that promote estrogen production. For your symptoms, you need to take some anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and some hormone balancing herbs. The best treatment I can recommend which is easy for you to prepare yourself would be to take a daily combination of Ginger tea, Chamomile tea, Vitex Herb, and Wild Yam herb. The Vitex and Wild Yam are available from health food stores as supplements. If you are still not seeing an improvement after 3 weeks, however, I would recommend a visit to your local naturopath - they will most likely prescribe for you a tincture containing Peony/Licorice/Vitex, as well as a magnesium supplement. Peony and Licorice are...


Q: 

Severe pain with intercourse following surgery

A: Hello, I''m sorry you have had such a struggle with this. You can continue to develop ovarian cysts so your doctor is not out of line in suggesting this. Even treatment for endometriosis is usually temporary as more develops over time. I hope this pain will be a temporary condition and that it was due to a cyst. If it continues, you do need to return to a gynecologist. It is important to feel that your doctor is listening to you but you must keep in mind that in some cases the doctor is not able to determine a cause through tests, x-rays, screenings and exams. I wish medicine was at that point but unfortunately it is both art and science - imperfect at that. The fact that you haven''t yet been cured does not...


Q: 

Pain, none stop! any ideas?

A: ovarian cysts are painful. I have experienced many of them. Please monitor the pain and if it gets (a) worse or (b) lasts more than a few weeks please go to the doctor. They may make you get the cysts removed. The reason I caution you with monitoring them is because if the cysts burst it is VERY painful! I have had it happen to me. cysts in general in your ovaries are VERY painful. They can take forever to work themselves out. But please monitor them, if your doctor just gives you a bull **** answer go to another doctor or the hospital if they get worse, because if it bursts it can cause septic shock. Please get a second opinion!...
Q: 

Query and Advice Please

A: If your gynecologist is not worried by your ovarian cyst - and that seems to be the case or more drastic measures would have been recommended - you most probably do not need to worry either. If this cyst is the only one and has not changed much over time I really do not see any reason to worry. Your WBC is still within what is not really abnormal. It may be connected to your slight elevation of your ESR. However like most menstruating women you may be slightly anemic. If so your ESR will be slightly elevated due to that too. I see no probable connection between your cyst and these hematological measurements. Well you can ask your gynecologist if there is any reason to do a laparascopic...
