    I am posting here because I am not sure

    if what I am going through is normal for a cyst. My period in February was almost a week early and afterwards I had some discharge with blood streaks in it so I went to my Dr for a pap smear which came back normal (had an abnormal one in 2006). My period in March was normal and...

    Sometime last year I started to get pains in my

    lower back and abdomen. Since I came off my period a few days around that time, I shrugged it off as ovulation pains or just lingering period pains. Then I started to get the pain in my ribs on both sides and the pain got worse. I would wake up every morning with this pain. I...

    I have had these since I was a teenager.

    .. It is very painful... I think it actually makes my cramps worse around my period... When I have talked to the doctor about it they gave me birth control which didn't help or change the sharp pains. & the birth control made my hormones crazy which caused flare ups with my skin...

    Tired Of The PAIN!!

    I went to see a GYN on the 10th of Sept because I had been having bad pelvic pain. It was very familiar so I knew I had a cyst. I explained how I was feeling and where. This Dr tells me that it's not a cyst because my pain was up too high and that it was my psoas muscle. That...

    Does An Ovarian Cyst Make You Sick?

    Willful Ignorance: Four years ago,

    after a visit to my gynecologist, I learned that I have an ovarian cyst. She told me that the cyst will reduce in size and eventually disappear as long as I take birth control. So I did. A year later I returned to her for a check-up. She was pleased to report that my cyst had...
