Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
How big is the cyst
I actually don't know but when I compare the size of ovaries can't be big
Do you use any birth control
not yet the cyst was found last month so I was suppose to use Jasmin frm 5th of my cycle, which I'm not getting
You are not going to use the birth control???
yes, but the doctor told me to use Jasmin to help with cyst, starting on 5th of my period and I don't know if this brownish discharge is my period to start the pill
Did you do a pregnancy test
no, I haven't had unprotected intercourse
This brown discharge could be anything- from a possible pregnancy to an infection
so what sould I do?
the discharge is not smelly, no itchyness or any sign of infection
so, this is NOT likely to be a BV (bacterial vaginosis) infection
But, could be another type of infection, but most likely just old blood, or possible blood from an ovarian cyst
how can I make sure? do I need to wait? because I feel all symptoms of gettig my period, cramps ..., I'm so wooried about pregnancy
and also I don't know if I can start my pills now
Well, take a pregnancy test if you are less than 3 to 4 days from your period.
Also, this is usually not much to be too concerned about -
I had my period last month on second so I have past the day like last month, cause since I hav ethe cyst my cycle is not normal
And, you do have normal PAP smears?
I haven't had any PAP smears
You have NEVER had a PAP smear ever?
I just had blood test and sonogram and the doctor said its a simple cyst
Oh, simple cyst - that is absolutely normal - we do not treat these except with birth control pills or something similar
I would suggest a PAP smear too, this could be abnormal cervical cells.
Are you really in Iran
Wow - I'm in the U.S.
But, you should have a PAP smear - it is recommended to have a PAP smear starting at age 21 and every year there after
so do I need to see a doctor? shall I start the pills now?
here they don't do it until you are sexually active!!!! actually not married!!!
So, you are not sexually active, correct?
By the way, you write English very well
since six months only
and as it is long distance only every two months
OH, okay - so unlikely abnormal cervical cells then
Since most abnormal cervical cells are from HPV (Human Papilloma Virus
which is sexually transmitted
then this will go away?
because I read in internet this can continue up to 3 months!
And, so I would start the birth control pills - this is most likely due to hormonal fluctuations and the pills will help
Yes, this will all go away.
Nice to talk to you from the other side of the world
ok then thank you so much,
yes I still can't believe it
keep in contact - always curious about your country
cause I'm suddenly so afraid and couldn't find a doctor at 3:0 a.m
a beautiful country
There is nothing you need to worry about
I've never been there
you should visit sometime
I've had friends stationed there when the Shah was in power - before your time
thanks doctor anyway
we aren't allowed to visit your country
so these pills I should take one per day any time?
Yes, they should
yes you are allowed but most probably affraid!
wish we could exchange emails - but we can't - take care
thank you so much
