I've recently been diagnosed with a dermoid cyst and polycystic ovaries.
Between the ages of 14 and 17 I only had four periods. I started the pill for contraceptive reasons at 17 and had regular periods then. I'm 22 now and in April I thought I was pregnant- morning sickness, tender boobs, weight gain, needing to pee frequently but negative pregnancy tests. Then i had heavy midcycle bleeding which lasted 9 days and bad pain in my right side which has been on going ever since.
My doctor sent me for an ultrasound which showed I have a 4.5cm dermoid cyst on my left ovary (they think there's fat in it but they're not sure) and that my right ovary is polycystic.
I met with the gynae for the first time last week and didn't like his attitude. He said "well everyone has a cyst on their ovary" and that my pain is probably just pms. He told me to stop taking the pill and I have another appointment with him at the end of september.
I'm just so confused about what's causing all the pain in my right side now. And I don't understand why he took me off the pill.
Can anyone shed some light on the situation?? Any thing at all would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for all the replies in advance 😊😊
