I had a laparoscopy done recently due to persistent huge hemmorhagic ovarian cysts every month since November 2013 and also just found out a couple months ago that I have a blood clotting disorder called Leiden factor five and I already have a history of blood clots. In my surgery they found stage two endometriosis and a strand pulling my ovary and Fallopian tube being pulled down and two ovarian cysts in my Fallopian tube. They corrected all of these and let me know that the endometriosis will come back and the cysts won't stop. I cannot be put on birth control due to my history of blood clots and blood clotting disorder. I have two concerns.
im 24 and was told the only way to stop the ovarian cysts is to get pregnant. I talked with my hematologist and he says I will be high risk and have to be on blood thinners. This concerns me, especially since the endometriosis and cysts will come back even after pregnancy and I'm afraid to be high risk. My husband and I are leaning to not having children and just getting my ovaries out to stop this cyst problem.
second concern is I just had surgery on august 12 of this year and it wasn't too painful, my knee surgeries were a lot worse on recovery. My concern lies that I'm having quite a bit of stabbing pain and I'm sure it's a cyst again. What do I do? I'm sick of hospitals every month thinking I'm drug seeking because I'm in so much pain and no doctor will take the ovaries out even though I've thought it through and I will adopt if I want a kid really badly. I'd rather not be in pain all the time. Please help, anyone!
