a scare already (pg mentioned)

  • Hi ladies, I"m wondering if you could help me out with some information. Yesterday we were traveling out of province, and I began to have pain in my left lower abdomen. I am 5 weeks pg, and was concerned with an eptopic, as I've been on fertility meds. It got progressively worse as the morning went on, and then I had a bit of pink spotting. I had my dh take me to the emergency room. It was a very long 5.5 hours, but I ended up with b/w, 2 vag u/s, and a formal u/s. The spotting stopped, and apparently I have a cyst on my left ovary. They found the yolk sac in my uterus, not in a tube (too early for heartbeat, I guess), my beta was good (17 000), so we left there extremely relieved. The problem is, that I was so worked up that I didn't ask anything about this cyst. It's between 4 and 5 cm, and I can take tylenol for the pain. That's all I know! Do they go away? Does it increase any complications for my pregnancy? How often will these pain flare ups occur? Any info would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks so much!

  • cysts normally go away on their own. However with the pain and such they may instruct you to take it easy. (rupturing a cyst can be exteremly painful) They call the corpus luteum cyst.

    However rarely there are cysts that don't resolve on their own and need to be surgically removed. (I had that happen) it happens to be a 1% chance or something like that...

  • Thank you so much for that article. The pain started again this morning, so I took a couple of tylenol and rested for a bit, and it seems okay now.

    Thanks again.

  • I hope everything is fine! We don't want you to worry! I'd say your numbers are just fine and you shouldn't even worry about an ectopic! When I had my ectopic, #'s were really low and even went down. I never even made it to 3000 and you're already at 17000! Take it easy
    We're here to chat with and we're all keeping you in thoughts and prayers!
