Hello, I'm totally new to this. I'm 21 years old and have just found out that I have cysts on both my ovaries (not sure of the size). After about 6 months of painful periods, i experinced bad abdominal above my belly button and unbelievable pain lower down. At first I thought it was just period pain with higher up tummy ache. Then I started getting pain in my bottom a few months ago and decided to see the doctor. I had a ultrasound on Monday and found out Tuesday about the cysts. I'm absolutely devastated and really worried. I don't know much as the more I read the more I worry. Still waiting for my referral to know more but I'm just wondering if anyone else has had cysts on both ovaries? My biggest worry is not being able to have children as that is what I want more than anything. I would be so greatful for some advice and support.
Thanks ladies x
Hey there, I'm not an expert by any means and I hope someone with more experience will reply to you. I only have a cyst on one ovary and am waiting for my appointment with the specialist too. Having cysts on your ovaries (even both) does not mean you are infertile or incapable of pregnancy, they will possibly need treatment, but there are options available that maintain your fertility. Don't stress yourself out.
