Here is what the paper-work from the Women's Imaging clinic states: 'Uterine dimensions are below. The myometrial echotexture is with normal limits. The central endometrial echo complex measures 4 mm and appears well defined. The right ovary measures 2.5 x 2.2 x 1.7 cm and contains a 2.2 cm simple cyst. Adjacent to the right ovary is a tubular fluid collection consistent with a hydrosalpinx. The left ovary measures 2.1 x 2.0 x 1.5 cm. Both ovaries demonstrate a normal sonographic appearance. No evidence for adnexal mass or pevic free fluid. The uterus measures 8.0 x 4.1 x 3.6 cm. No adnexal masses are seen. The kidneys were cursorily scanned revealing no evidence for hydronephrosis.'
I have an appointment to get a second opinion and the earliest appointment I could get as 'a new patient' is on December 16th. I just don't want to worry until then but my regular gyn doctor seems to be surgery happy. The hydrosalpinx is also a concern. Should I worry about that?? I have no pain except a bit of a pinch when I get my period. It is not like I am going to have children at my age so I am thinking not to worry about the hydrosalpinx on the right side. What do you think?
Good Morning Doctor Gibstein,
Thank you for your email and opinion. I feel much better now and will wait until I get in to see a new doctor next month. The only reason I went back on Orthro Tricyclen Lo (not genetic) was to control fairly heavy periods and according to my doctor get my hormones in check which 'may' reduce the size of my ovarian cyst. My husband is 'fixed' so it is not for birth control. One more question - are you saying it is ok to be on the pill eventhough it is not helping with the cyst but it is keeping me regular and I am having lighter periods?
Again, thanks for your help!
Yes, that is what I am saying. OCs will not effect an ovarian cyst.
