I am not sure how long I have had this cyst on my ovary but about 3 weeks ago I experienced a sharp pain on my right side during intercourse. Afterwards, I experienced extremely painful crampin and shooting pain from my lower right side up to my belly button. The pain eventually went away but then it would come back sporadically throughout the week. I exercise at least 4 days a week and I realized that I was experiencing pain and discomfort just from walking on the treadmill. This is the factor that caused me to go see my gyno. During my check up my doctor said right away it felt like a cyst. She had me get a vaginal ultrasound that day and told me it was a dermoid cyst. I was told to come back within 2 days to discuss options. 2 days later I go back and she tells me it has taken over my right ovary and will need to be removed along with the cyst. This is really upsetting to me because I am only 22. I know you can still have children but just makes me paranoid about my one remaining ovary after surgery. My doctor sent me for a MRI to get a better image of the cyst to determing how they would proceed with surgery. I am meeting with her tomorrow to discuss. I know recovery is different for everyone and it does somewhat depend on what kind of surgery you have but I was wondering overall what I should expect? Are there any side effects anyone has experienced?
