... almost 5 cm and didn't fall off for 2 years. I had a gyno who said he wanted to do surgery at 5 cm but then moved states and I was switched to another doctor. 3 months later my new doctor said it was gone, but by tracking my temperature found that I do not ovulate every month. I've been having pain since I lost my insurance in April until I finally went to the ER this week because of the intense pain I could not bare any longer. They found through the ultrasound I have two cysts on my right side, 1 cm and 2 cm. I've been put on birth control before and it's done nothing. Now I'm going to be adamant about finding out what to do, I've been diagnosed with endometriosis and these cysts are causing too much pain to bear. Other than birth control, are there any other treatments I can have the doctor look into for me? I'm 25 and I haven't been able to get pregnant with all my problems and my long term boyfriend just turned 30. Please help, any advice please. I've lost so much hope
Does your boyfriend have insurance? Have you gone to healthcare.gov and checked out what is offered there, because we are all supposed to have insurance. There is financial assistance. There are other things, but I'm afraid without insurance they won't suggest it until they try everything else first because of the expense. My daughter just went thru the same thing. She qualified for a limited Medicaid just for the cyst problems.
I am 43 now, I was first diagnosed with Ovarian Cysts at 20, after my first child, I had 4 cysts 2 on each ovary they each were the size of an orange, they went through my belly button and right above my pelvic area and drained them, tjis was in 1994, since then I have had ovarian cysts removed 4 times, just recently I started having frequent heavy periods again, I immediately knew this was a symptom of Ovarian Cysts, I went to the doctor and they decided to do a Laparoscopy and drain them once again, this was 2 years ago, in just the past 6 months I again have been experiencing the frequent heavy periods again, doctors have suggested that I consider a Hysterectomy, but I am Leary of this, I do not plan on more kids at my age, but I also don't know if I am ready to have my female parts removed and experience early Menopause. But my husband thinks I should have the hysterectomy done to relieve the pain and finally get rid of them for good. I am just concerned about the after effects, I already have a history of depression and anxiety for 15 years and take medications for it, and I am concerned a Hysterectomy would make my depression and anxiety worse.
