The Possibility Of Getting Pregnant Again In People With Ovarian Cysts?
Good evening, I want to ask about the size of the cyst that can be operated on. I am a mother of one child aged 34 years. Before pregnancy my first child had a cyst but according to the obstetrician at that time my cyst was not a problem, then I was pregnant, and the obstetrician said The cyst can disappear when the fetus is enlarged. After 8 years later I intend to do a second child program, and ultrasound shows I have a right ovarian cyst measuring 5.2 x 4.2 cm. Can I still get pregnant without having to have surgery?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled mass that grows inside the ovary or its surface. Having a cyst is not always dangerous. In some cases, cysts can get smaller with the passage of menstruation and pregnancy. Maybe this is the basis that your doctor previously allowed you to get pregnant.
Cyst growth can be triggered by a hormonal imbalance, for example if you are obese or take hormonal drugs beforehand to treat fertility problems. Cysts that do not shrink after pregnancy and with the passage of menstruation should be operated on. Especially if the diameter of the cyst exceeds 4 cm, or often cause complaints, such as irregular menstruation, severe abdominal pain, and prolonged menstrual bleeding. What is worrying about this condition is, the possibility of the cyst to burst so that it can cause severe pain and bleeding in the abdominal cavity and pelvis. An enlarged cyst also has the potential to make the ovaries (ovaries) twist (torsion) so that blood flow becomes obstructed.
However, decisions regarding what kind of treatment is most appropriate to treat ovarian cysts should be discussed directly with an obstetrician. By directly examining your physical condition and also evaluating more deeply through ultrasound, laparoscopy, and blood tests to check CA125 antigen 125), your doctor can generally determine whether you are a good candidate for surgery.
Having ovarian cysts does not decrease a woman's potential for pregnancy. It's just that, irregular menstrual cycles can make it more difficult for you to determine your fertile period. In addition, the quality of the eggs can also decrease in the presence of ovarian cysts. Therefore, proper handling is needed before you plan for pregnancy again.
Currently, you can first compress the abdominal area, upper genitals, and waist which often feel painful using a warm compress. Don't be too tired yet, and always live a healthy lifestyle.
Hope this helps ..
