Hello, I'm a 19 year old, with a complex ovarian cyst. Back in November 2015 I had An MRI for hip problems and it picked up cysts on my ovaries. I saw an OB/GYN in December and at that time since I was still having regular periods we decided to watch it. Well beginning I then began having irregular/missed periods and I went back to the Dr. In April, she ordered an Ultrasound and blood work. The blood work was normal, and the ultrasound showed a 3.0 cm mildly complex heterogenous cyst in the right ovary consistent with a hemorrhagic cyst. She gave me a order to do a repeat US in 6 weeks and put me on progesterone to start my cycle. I started my cycle and it was regular for 2 cycles and then began to get irregular again, so I went in for the follow up US on 09/06 and the report states "dominant complex cyst within the right ovary has increased in size to 4.6 cm, and appears to have a possible retractile clot along one margin. An additional follow up US in 6 weeks is recommended to exclude endometrioma or ovarian neoplasm" My Dr has now put me on Birth Control and gave me a referall for another US in 6 weeks. My concern is 1. It's a complex cyst and 2. They feel that it'll be gone by the next US, in 6 weeks despite the fact that it's persisted for 5 months and grown 1.6 cm. can anyone give any input on whether I should get a second opinion or if this is the right approach for something like this? Sorry for the lengthy post but thank you for any advice!
