Welcome to Just Answer It is my pleasure to help you today
the adnexa is the tissues beside the uterus which include ovaries and fallopian tubes
it is common for the normal functioning ovaries to produce 6 - 7 follicular cysts per year. These adnexal cysts are of benign nature and get resolved on their own. They are considered as a common part of menstrual cycle. However, they present a problem when they persists for too long or become abnormally large
a cyst is a sac filled with fluid in the ovary
so you still have your period?
In most women, adnexal cyst produces no symptoms at all. They are often reported accidentally while routine gynecological examination.
ultrasound is what you get when you are pregnant yes
In pre-menopausal women, the causes of adnexal cyst are mostly ectopic pregnancies, endometria, polycystic ovaries, tubo-ovarian abscess
so thats why ultrasound is recommended to get better understanding of what would be the cause of it if any thing serious
Adnexal cyst is a pretty generic term that does not indicate the magnitude of seriousness
the fluid may irritate the pelvic lining and cause pain, often severe. Most of the time the pain begins to gradually subside over the course of the next few days
another reason for ultra sound is to check if it ruptured if it did there would be fluid in the pelvic cavity behind the uterus
If a cyst is present and is larger than 5 or 6cm, and if you are having a lot of pain, sometimes we will recommend a laparoscopy to remove the cyst. If it has ruptured, and your pain is getting better, then we usually just give pain medicine and watch to see what happens. If pain does not begin to improve within several hours, or if your blood count drops, then we have to do a laparoscopy to make sure you are not having any internal bleeding. Sometimes birth control pills are used to help decrease your chances of getting an ovarian cyst again.
just to let you know that it is a very common problem
however most of the time, an ovarian cyst will spontaneously resolve in 8 to 12 weeks.
laparoscopy is surgery yes its a camera with probe to see whats going on inside the abdomen it is done under general anesthesia
no it is done in the hospital in operating room
we worry about cancer in post menopausal adenxal cyst
recovery if laparoscopy is done is usually very quick 3-4 days
yes after menopause
yes the OBGYN dr do it
less likely to be tumor
in general Fortunately, most ovarian cysts do not require surgical removal and are not caused by cancer
it means that in your case the chance of it being cancer is less than 1%
on your next OBGYN visit unless severe pain or bleeding happen go to emergency room for urgent one
was I able to answer all your concerns tonight?
Ovarian cysts can sometimes be detected during a pelvic examination, although an imaging test, usually a pelvic ultrasound, is necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
again if there is no severe pain or bleeding or any abnormal symptom it can be scheduled ASAP unless pain or bleeding then it is emergency that needs to be done at once
and usually it is repeated every 6-8 weeks to monitor it
if you have pelvic pain
the periods vary from a woman to other in perimenopuasal period tehy are mostly irregular
Perimenopause lasts up until menopause, the point when the ovaries stop releasing eggs. In the last one to two years of perimenopause, this decline in estrogen accelerates
it would be acute severe pain not the normal cramps
do you have any more clarifications regarding the adenxal cyst?
