Hiya, I'm 19 and I had my first ovarian cyst when I was 17, it caused a lot of pain and was removed by laparoscopy when they were looking for endometriosis but didn't find any.
I had similar pains every few months or so and would have a really heavy period after and then the pain would go. I had very very bad pains a month ago and bled heavily for 4 weeks and there were little particles in my blood, the doctors supposedly treated me as an emergency but my scan is next week.
It seems that I get cysts every now and then and they rupture, but my periods are regular, anybody have any idea what this could be? because i heard pcos meant you needed to have irregular periods.

Also - my second question is whether the fluid from when my cysts rupture could cause me to have yeast infections or similar symptoms? Because I get yeast infections that I cannot get rid of when this happens and I don't know what to do, I told my doctor but the waiting list for a gynaecologist is 2 months so I'm still wondering. I have so much time off work for this pain and I can't stand it

Please help - thank you xxxx

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a specific condition. The cysts are small and usually do not rupture or cause pain.

Cysts that cause pain in your age group are usually formed from egg follicles and are caused "functional" cysts because they happen during what is basically the normal activities of the ovary. Some form at the time of ovulation. Some are just overgrown egg follicles which do not actually release a mature egg. Functional cysts will go away by themselves and do not need any treatment. For that reason, for a scan to be of the best use, it needs to be done while you are having pain.

Ovarian cysts do not cause yeast infections or predispose to them.

Functional ovarian cysts can be prevented by using birth control pills. A very low dose pill may be less effective in preventing egg follicles from enlarging or in suppressing ovulation, so a moderate dose pill may be suggested.

Have you been on antibiotics? That can make you very susceptible to yeast infections...and you could simply be prone to them. My daughter is! Some folks just have bodies that are hospitable to yeast!

Are you taking anything for the pain? Usually, an anti-inflammatory will help.
