Since making a trip to the ER when I was 6 weeks pregnant because of extreme pain the doctors discovered that my ovary was 7cm and one of my cysts on my right ovary ruptured. Radiology checked the flow of my ovary and it was fine at the time. Since then I have had my right ovary checked to see if the size went down however the flow to my ovary has slowly stopped. The doctors said I might have twisted my ovary during the time I went to the ER but the funny thing is I'm not in extreme pain just mild discomfort if I sit too long or I walk more than 30 minutes at a time. At this point don't know what the doctors are going to do with me, I'm 17 weeks now and baby is fine, but wondering if anyone has experience this before or knows someone who has?View Thread
Talked to my doctor and she and the people she consulted with said they wanted to wait until the baby is born before they remove the ovary. I don't have any pain and it's not effecting the baby. The ovary went down in size because it's dying off and the only concern at this point is infection. So far baby and I are doing fine, thank you for your concern. View Thread
Thank you for the reply hgreenwood. The doctors said the ovary was 7cm and the second time it got larger, but didn't tell me how large. I too am diagnosed with pcos and I had to go on clomid to be able to conceive. My right ovary always had more cysts than my left. Hope when I see the doctors again they decide what to do or let me get a second opinion.View Thread
