Cyst and endometriosis

Hi, my GP has found a cyst a couple of inches above my c-section scar and while I was there I mentioned how with every month my period pain gets worse. I can barely stand up from the couch and I walk like I am heavily pregnant. I feel a burning sensations on my left side and also like my muscles are being pulled. She said it's most likely mild endometriosis. I'm still trying to get my head round this but does this sound familiar? And could the cyst and endo be related? Thank you!

  • If it is definitely a cyst - i.e. fluid filled - you would only have these from endometriosis on your ovaries. But if endo is suspected there is a procedure to be followed. Have a look at my post on the treatment pathway. 

  • Thank you, I will have a look! What is - amongst many other things - confusing me at the moment is that GP said the cyst is not on the ovary....

  • Yes, me too. You can have endo in a C section scar but it is rare. All should become clear when you are investigated.

  • Thank you so much!
