Hi everyone. Im 24. Originally i went to the doctors with complaints about pains in my stomach and irregular bleeding. After weeks of being told I had possible IBS they finally agreed to do an ultrasound. This showed i had gallstones (hence the pain in my stomach) and also an 8cm cyst on my left ovary. I was referred to a specialist and after waiting 2 months they performed another ultrasound. This one showed that the cyst was now only 4 cm, but there was now another 2 cysts in the same ovary around 3-4 cm big, also 3 smaller cysts in my right ovary and i also had endometriosis. After considering the best methods, i've decided to go ahead with an operation. Im now in alot of pain. Im taking the contoraceptive pill to stop my monthly periods so to avoid more pain. They have told me they will remove the larger of the cysts and attempt to burn away the other cysts plus endometriosis. They have also said because of the size of the cyst there is a risk to losing one of my ovaries. I would like to hear from anyone who has gone through a similar situation and how it has effected them. Im very concerned about fertility as i do hope to have kids one day.
Thank you for any help/advice.
