Yes, I also get ovarian cysts. I am still on my own journey trying to figure out what works for me in managing symptoms. I sometimes get that pressure, followed by a sharp pain when the cyst eventually bursts.  I had a transvaginal ultrasound (very painful and uncomfortable for me) as well as external ultrasounds and they confirmed that I had cysts. My gynecologist had me on birth control for a few months but it made me feel worse in many other ways so I stopped taking it. The doctor thinks I could have endometriosis, but there isn’t a way to confirm it without surgery and she does not recommend surgery unless you are trying to become pregnant soon, which I am not.

You are NOT alone. This is a journey. I am going to my doctor soon and can share if anything promising is recommended!
