ask: Should I go to the Hospital for my ovarian cyst?

By Anonymous

I am 17 years old and 13 days ago I was told I have an ovarian cyst. A month before I went to urgent care for sever pain in my abdomen during sex, after sex, and randomly throughout my daily routine. The doctor did a pelivic exam to check for any stds and gave me antibiotics for vaginitis. for the last 18 days I have had extream craps and sharp pains in my left side, which I found out is a cyst. I was suppose to get my period 21 days ago and finally got it today, and I am having the worst pains i have ever felt in my side and back. The doctor didnt tell me anything besides the cyst was on my left ovary and was "rather large" . He advised me to return to the hospital if the pain didnt go away in 7-10 days. I'm really worried about how serious it could get and any long term effects. I also want to know if my tilted uterus is factor in any way. Please help me.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  You need to go back to your doctor and preferable a specialist such as an OBGYN.  Explain how you still feel and discuss any questions you might have.  He might also suggest different types of imaging tests, to find the right treatment for you.

Best,

Daisy
