ovarian cyst?

For quite sometime now, I've had an ovarian cyst on my right side. Every now and again it'll burst, but it comes back. Now that I am pregnant, the doctors want to keep an eye on it. I'm going for an ultrasound tomorrow to see if it's gotten bigger.

Has anyone ever had one? Will it effect the baby in any way? What happens if it doesn't go away?

I'm just concerned...

I had that. I ended up with a 20cm x 16 cm x 12 cm one that had to be removed by laparotomy (and salpingo-oophorectomy, tube/ovary removal) at 15 weeks. It was only dangerous because mine was up into my rib cage near my heart because of it's size. With smaller ones, they generally wait until after you deliver. Good luck!

Re: ovarian cyst?

hon, at my first ultrasound at 7 weeks i had an ovarian one and one on my vaginal canal. the ovarian one went away (pretty common i hear), the vaginal one has grown a bit (about an inch in circ.) and my midwife says that it's fine and the baby will rupture it on the way out. Lovely thought huh? I wouldn't worry too much. They are quite common and if they aren't near anything that can cause a problem they usually will go away!!! Good luck! I sware i felt like i was growing a garden down there.

Okay, I feel a bit better now. Like I said, I'm going for a pelvic ultrasound today, and I go back to my obgyn Oct. 31, so we'll see what happens.

Thank you, ladies!
