ovarian cyst on depo

Posted , 2 users are following.

ive been having lots of symptoms the same as most of you ladys, lower back ache, looking pregnant, really bloating, constipation, stabbing pains in the pelvic area, so tired, no energy. i went to my docs who states it could be IBS. he done a ca125 and levels were slightly raised, i went for a scan on the pelvic area, nothing, everything was normal, got referred to a gynae, had biopsy, that come back clear also had CT scan. results of that was normal apart from a small ovarian cyst 2.4 cm. i carnt really understand why i have a cyst if i dont ovalate. can any one help.

    Hi Mags, thanks for your reply. yes i had an inner scan, early on in the year and nothing was there it was only when i had a ct scan that they seen the cyst. i dont even know what sort it is, i will read back thank you. do u think that they will monitor this cyst as it may grow ? like i said i dont have periods as i have been on the depo injection for over 10 years now. this is why i have alot of confusion about it al as some of the storyies you read are with many woman having periods and ovalating. it doesnt cause me pain all the time but sometimes if i stretch or sudden move i feel a pulling sensation. i have a real heavy feeling as if something is going to pop and im always bloated. i was sitting down the other day and all i could feel was like a nerve pain just throbbing
