Abdominal Pain For 3 Days During Menstruation In Patients With Ovarian Cysts?
Good morning, I want to ask. I suffer from ovarian cysts, now I am 23 years old. When I come for the first day I feel extreme pain, usually the pain can last for 3 days, it can’t even be carried out by any activity other than sleep, because of the extraordinary pain factor. Previously, I routinely checked with the nearest doctor and performed an ultrasound. But lately I’ve never checked. For my symptoms of pain, is my cyst still safe?
Hello Indah, Thank you for the question.
Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that occur in the ovaries. Ovarian cysts can be divided into functional cysts (cysts that are part of the menstrual cycle) and pathological cysts (cysts that form from abnormal cell growth). In general, small cysts do not cause any symptoms. New symptoms appear if the cyst is large or if the cyst is pressing on the surrounding tissue, including pain in the lower abdomen, pain during sexual intercourse, menstrual cycles become irregular, menstruating becomes more or less, easily full and flatulence.
To find out your current condition with certainty can not be estimated just from the symptoms alone, it requires examination by a doctor directly. If you experience persistent or worsening symptoms, the best step is to consult your obstetrician again. The doctor needs to ask about your symptoms and examine you by ultrasound. Management of ovarian cysts depends on the size of the cyst, the symptoms experienced by the patient, and the patient's age. If the cyst is small and does not cause symptoms, then only routine monitoring is needed. But if there are symptoms usually the doctor will recommend further treatment such as the use of birth control pills or surgery. Please discuss with your doctor when checking yourself yes.
Meanwhile, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol to help relieve menstrual pain. Warm compresses on a sick stomach can also help.
Hopefully this information helps you.
