    I keep getting cysts on my ovary (the same one). It starts out as pressure around the area and then just gets worse. I have been to my doctor twice about it now and there is normally nothing she can do. Does anyone else experience this?

      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!

      Yes, so many times. Are you on birth control? And have they ever looked at the possibility of it being endometriosis? I used to get small cysts that would pop and years later, figured out it was endo.

      I also recommend an internal ultrasound. Kind of painful but should be helpful with seeing what’s going on inside
