    Default Appendectomy and ovarian cysts… what a month!

    I have had a rough few weeks!

    July 21st I had an emergency appendectomy. During Surgery, doctors noticed that I had a large Hemorrhagic cyst. They removed it while they were in taking out my appendix. The cyst had leaked a bit of blood into my abdomen, leaving me more sore and swollen that usual. July 29th AF showed up, I was thinking great! Clean slate. Wrong. I started spotting two days ago with horrible pain. Found out today I have another large Hemorrhagic cyst. My doctor said it’s leaking into my abdomen and it wasn’t quite big enough to do anything but let it rupture or shrink. She believes I am getting them because I stopped taking birth control?!

    This is my first experience with cysts… Anyone have any info?

    I would think that something is going on with you beyond "it's b/c you stopped taking birth control." I have no personal experience to help you though.

    Wow. That sounds painful. I have no personal experience with cysts, but I have heard the can be very painful. Have you been diagnosed with PCOS? I agree with Jackie that is more than just that you stopped taking BC.

    KUP on how you are feeling.

    I think my cyst have ruptured. That wasn't fun... at all. AF started in August on the 29th. I think AF started the 15th? I don't know if it was a real period. Its throwing me off. I'll probably have to wait a month to see what my cycle is doing. Any suggestions!
