Hello my name is chantelle and im 23 years old since I've had my youngest son I've not had a normal period I was constantly on for 7 months none stop anyway went to see my doctor and she sent me off for blood test they all came back normal. Then she sent me off for a ultrasound sound about a month ago and it came back as I have 5 gull stones on my right side and a 3 cm cyst on my ovary, I was shocked and scared thinking I was going to die :'(. I came off my periods for about 2 weeks and came back on for 5 days came off for 1 day and back on again but now my periods r getting heavier and I'm having blood clots, also pain down my legs and in the grind and bottom of my stomach. I'm scared that I might have cancer or something. I'm a paranoid mommy I get scared if my children cut them self's I worry about everything. Please can someone help. Xx

Hello Chantelle,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for sharing your experience and fears with us. We are here to help in any way possible.
I will do my best to calm your fears.

A 3 cm ovarian cyst is common among women in their reproductive years. Did your doctor tell you that it was a benign cyst? Did she tell you it was a complex or simple ovarian cyst? Did she recommend surgery?

It is important for you to get these questions answered. Give her a call. Ovarian cancer is almost always associated with complex ovarian cysts. Simple cysts are usually benign.

An ovarian cyst can cause a dull ache that starts in your pelvic area and may radiate to your lower back and thighs. It can cause irregular menstrual bleeding, which you are experiencing.

Chantelle, talk with your doctor, share your fears and the symptoms you are having. Ask if she has any treatment recommendations.
