Hello all...

I have cyst and I have pain sometimes its sharp and sometimes very crapmy like mensutral pain. I am just done with my mensutral periods, today is 7th day. I usually have bleeding for only 4 days, but this time pain is horrible and even today I see discharge... I have pelvic, abdominal, back pain and too much pressure in rectum that I feel like passing bowels all the time. This is the first time I see something like this so iam little worried. My gynec is out station. Is this normal?

    Do you know the size of your cyst? I had a large 16cm one and cluster of five 4cm cysts on my other ovary. I notice about 3 months before my operation to remove them, I had longer periods. I'm usually 3/4 days but had them for around 10 days. It constantly felt like I needed to go to the toilet which is like the pressure on the rectum you describe.

    I was told by the specialist that this is common and the best thing to do is take painkillers and try to avoid using tampons as it can make the ache/pressure more painful. I also used a hot water bottle which eased the pain.

    Do you have a date to have the cyst removed?

    Hope you're feeling better soon xx

      Hi Megg,

      Thanks for your concern. I have no idea about my cyst how big it is and what kind it is. I didn't get a chance to discuss about the ultrasound results with my gynec. She is not here now. Trying to meet any other gynec for a 2nd opinion. Hopefully I will get an appointment soon smile
