How big is the cyst now?
How old are you ?
Do you have a period every month?
I'm 29 years old......my doctor didnt tell me how big the cyst is now but before was 5-6 cm
yes i have very regular periods with the pill
IF the cyst IS really bigger - then the next step is to either wait another 6 weeks OR to schedule surgery to remove the cyst (leave the ovary)
how big should the cyst be before considering removing it?
ONce the cyst is Persistant AND it is greater than 5cm - it is time to remove it
i think i have had the cyst since my teenage years as i have had bleeding in between periods since then so its def persistant
so do you think yasmin has been causing my bleeding? can the pill do that 15 months after someone takes it?
You should NOT have had the cyst that long - BUT if you have had it that long - IT DEFINITELY needs to be removed - it is time
Yasmin is NOT usually the problem
You have a persistant and large cyst - it needs to be removed - and that way you can get back to Normal life
would you recommend I take the new pill (cilest) to see if the bleeding continues?
A new pill will NOT make a difference at this point
apologies for repeating myself but i was told by the doctor that since I am not bleeding in between my period but about 5-7 days before my period..........its probably the pill?
what is your opinion?
No, not the pill
I really think that with a persistant cyst, and pain, this is time to go in laparoscopically to remove the cyst
YOU will feel a LOT better you really will
ok so forget taking a new pill and simply have the cyst removed?
and stick to yasmin?
Yes, - stick with the Yasmin –
And, then I would really suggest getting the cyst removed – this will definitely make your quality of life better
