I have a simple ovarian...
I have a simple ovarian cyst. I have some cramping pain now and I feel like the pain happens with movement. Is that a sign that the cyst is growing?
I do not have continual pain, but rather comes and goes like a cramp.

It is not necessarily a sign that the cyst is growing. But is a sign that the cyst is still present. The cyst may be leaking fluid which is normal as it resolves. It may take it as long as a month to six weeks to resolve completely

It got diagnosed 2 month ago by ultrasound. It was 5.7 cm
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Said to come back for an ultrasound in 6-8 weeks. I have the follow up on Tuesday and very nervous
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Do you think that if it is still present now after this first 8 week follow up the reproductive endocrinologist will say to get surgery?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It was 5.7 cm

If it is a simple cyst, then no it is really safe to follow it for 3-4 months.

Yeah he said simple
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
sounds like he will have me come back in another 1-2 month?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have pcos so that's why I guess I have it I stopped bc 6 months before to see how my periods will be spread out so that eventually my husband and I get pregnant
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
He said this needs to be gone before pregnancy . I am followed by a RE

Yes It would be best not to have surgery if possible. It is very likely to resolve on its own.

it would. My cramping is better today. Potentially it leaked fluid? I will see Tuesday at the f/u

Yes it may have leaked, but that would be a good sign.
