I am def in peri and for the last 6 months Ive been feeling depressed, periods all over the place and just not myself. This added to the craziness. Just wanted to share. Ive had pain on my right side for 6 months. Went in and they said I was in peri for sure and looked like I had a large cyst and to watch and wait. I never had these symptoms before. My doc said the fluctuation of hormones can cause cysts so they wanted to put me on low dose of birth control pills but since I smoke cigarettes 5 cigs a day not packs lol I couldn't so we just watched and waited.
I would get hot flashes, anxiety trembling sometime I would have to leave work I felt so bad. I finally went in again and the cyst they thought had grown to 5cm and I needed laparoscopic surgery. Come to find out my ovaries were fine my right fallopian tube was fulled with fluid . I had my tubes tied 8 yrs ago and at some point the clamp on the right side came off, with my hormones and periods being out of wack it caused my Fallopian tubes to fill with fluid and a cyst. They took out the Fallopian tube .
As soon as I woke up although in small bit of pain I felt normal again; The anxiety is gone no more hot flashes as of now. Just wanted to share with you all. I know I am in peri but I do think what I was experiencing aggravated my symptoms . I am going to try and stop smoking so I can try the bc pills.
I really appreciate this forum and knowing I am not alone on this journey. We will make it through this time!! xo
