    I don't know how things work if you're in the US. Here in UK we would go to our primary care doctor to ask for a referral to a consutant in gynaecology. If you feel too ill to carry on I think ER would be best. They could probably give more info on what to do next. Best wishes. x rolleyes

    I have had exactly the same. I persisted with the doctor and got referred to specialist. They removed my right Ovary 3 years ago. Now back in for another surgery in 6 weeks to remove more cysts and tie my tubes. My advice would be to try get it sorted. It's not life threatening so don't worry too much.

    I have a 4cm cyst on my left ovary and my periods have become heavy with clots, I get a lot of thigh pain and pain in my left hip. I'm yer to see my gynaecologist here in the uk but I want mine removed immediately as it's causing problems with my bladder and bowels so I feel your pain.
