Experiencing Ovarian Cysts During Pregnancy?
Good morning, I’m prominently promoting 3 times a month, every consul is always on TransV ultrasound 1-2 times. The USG is no problem, aka normal, but I’m still given fertility drugs such as Metformin, Inlacin, Folavit E, Dipthen Chlomiphen Citrate and when I come to 3 times on the TransV USG, how come the 4cm cyst suddenly appears, why is that ?? Is it because during menstruation I take fertility drugs ??? please explain, thanks
Hello Mrs. Davie,
Ovarian cysts are physiological, some are pathological. Physiological ovarian cysts arise due to the natural process of ovulation in the menstrual cycle, whereas pathological ovarian cysts are formed due to the process of abnormal cell division. Some physiological cysts can disappear on their own, so if the obstetrician suspects that the cyst is a physiological cyst, it is less than 5 cm in size and causes no symptoms, the obstetrician will usually recommend regular monitoring.
Risk factors for ovarian cysts include:
Hormonal problems Take hormonal drugs, such as clomiphene that helps cause ovulation Pregnancy Endometriosis Severe pelvic infections Previous ovarian cysts
Ovarian cysts are common in patients taking clomiphene, about 1 in 5 patients. The cyst that occurs is probably a physiological type of cyst, so what is needed is periodic monitoring because it usually goes away on its own unless the obstetrician has other considerations after examining you. For the next step, you can discuss it with your gynecologist.
Stick to the recommended medications and control for the specified time.
