I am a little confused/concerned and was wondering if anyone could give advice/guidance.
I was referred to local hospital about 3 months ago due to bleeding between periods and a scan found that I have a cyst on both ovaries (1.7 cm and 3.8 cm). I was told this indicated endo by the person doing the scan who booked me in for a second scan 2 months later. I´d not really heard of endo before, but I´ve always had very heavy periods. I dont have much pain with my periods at the moment but they were extremely painful for a short period of time three years ago so it all seemed to fit.
A few weeks later I attended an appointment with a gynecologist who stated that she didnt think any treatment would be required in this case, as the bleeding between periods had now stopped, but they would assess after second scan.
It has now been three weeks since my second scan (where the cysts were still present) and I have heard nothing back.
So I have a few questions:
Firstly, I am curious if it normal to not have any treatment after cysts have been found. Do they need to be a certain size before a lap is considered?
Also we had just started ttc and I assume the cysts will have a detrimental effect, so should i be pushing to get them removed to give us the best chance possible?
If the gynecologist doesnt want to provide any treatment is it possible to go back to the gp and ask for a second opinion?
Would appreciate any help/advice.
