I m so happy that I found this forum,I m 37 years now my story start last year. Jan 2013... When I had the most painful period ever, cramps, vomiting, couldn't walk...it was so painful that I thought I m gonna die from pain...just took few strong painkillers and after 2 days I felt better... Around May and juin I had cramps and painful period again ... I didn't go to work for 3 days... Went to see my family doctor who sent me for an ultrasound... Report came back with an ovarian cyst so he refereed me to a gyn who sent me for an ultrasound again ... Report shows an 11cm*9cm*7 they suspect an endometrioma... He told he needs to remove it but since he is booked til October. I should come in October but should do the ultrasound again... He asked me to google endometriosis... So after reading so many stories about endometriosis and how they affect fertility I change my diet completely.... No more meat gluten ,sugar....I got married in Aug And a month later I was pregnant I didn't expect that at all since I have an endometrioma ... Went to see my gyneco who was very understanding and told me that the cyst is stable and we will watch it and come back in jan ... I did an other ultrasound the mass didn't grow .. So he refereed me to a high risk gyn to do the follow up and since I was moving with my husband to an other country couldn't have a chance to see her... I have a new family doc who referred me to a high risk gyn ...In February I went to see her who told me that she prefer not to remove it now since I m pregnant and the mass is stable in size but would recommend a MRI ,she said it should be safe for the baby... And will do an ultrasound every 4 weeks to make sure that the baby is fine.. This week I got a letter from my family doc asking me to do an MRI ... I m not sure what to do I m scared for the baby... I m scared that is a cancer and I m not acting fast... I feel some discomfort from time to time but no pain.. I m 24 weeks... Trying to eat healthy as much as I could... I don't do much to reduce the risk of rupturing or twisting the cyst.... I don't know what to do...I didn't tell my family about my situation,I feel so lonely ... I have friends who are pregnant and happy and glowing... Me I m spending my days on net searching, but couldn't find any case like mine... Don't want to do a surgery while I m pregnant and I don't want to harm my baby by doing an MRI ... This technique is fairly new and they didn't test it on pregnant women yet to see the impact on babies... ,I don't no what to think or do, my family doc is very cold and she doesn't understand my fears ... Please any advice...
