Clear ultrasound but tons of ovarian cyst symptoms?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello again ladies,

I've written a couple posts on here over the last couple months and I'm back with even more questions! I have been experiencing tons of ovarian cyst symptoms over the past 2 and half months from a series of different pains, bloating, nausea, pelvic pain, exhaustion and more, I've had it all and was feeling pretty convinced having read other peoples stories that I had a cyst. 

I finally got to have an ultrasound last week where the lady chose to only do an external one (which felt very rushed). I got the results back today from my GP, just being told it was clear. I was originally transferred for the ultrasound to check for PCOS but tried to explain the severity of my symptoms once there, not that she seemed interested. 

I now have to wait a month to have hormonal blood tests but I am completely stumped. I felt so sure I had a cyst with how perfectly my symptoms fitted and all these symptoms are taking over my life and making everyday things so difficult. Not exactly what you want with exams coming up.

Any advice ladies?

    Hi! You really need an internal vaginal ultrasound to see properly. Mine did not show up till I had that done and then followed up with an MRI. If I were you I would find yourself a new Gyno - would also go to a gynecologist, not a GP.

    Hi!

    Sometimes cysts don't show up on external ultrasound due to gas in your intestines or not having your bladder full, for contrast. You should really get an internal one whenever you get the chance.

    Get well soon!
