    Cysts & Hormones

    Hi Grammy,

    I am going to to see my gyno next Tuesday about hoping to get on progesterone. I am 31 and have a 3 cm cyst on my left ovary. I am pretty sure I have another one forming on my right side. They have been painful and I have never had problems with cysts before in my life. What tests should I ask for while at my at this appointment?

    I just started P3 VLCD1 today at 215. My highest weight was 280 and I've gotten down to 202 through HCG and Weight Watchers. I've had trouble recently due to stress and hormonal problems. This same gyno told me I had PCOS about a month ago and sent me for a HSG test where I found out my left falopian tube was blocked. My husband and I would like to have a baby in the next five years, but aren't going to go to any super crazy measures.

    Thank you for your help,
    Amy

    You're low in progesterone and probably thyroid too. Progesterone will help the cysts a whole lot. Get tested about day 20 of your cycle. Get total estrogens, progesterone, free T3 and Free T4 for sure checked. Good luck!

    Amy, I curious what do cysts feel like? I'm actually going in tomorrow cause the last 2 times around ovulation my stomache is huge and really painful, which is happening right now. I've never experienced this before.

    Thx!

    It's the 25 hydroxy one.

    Lori, a cyst can feel just like that.

    Lori, the cyst I had is just a dull localized pain that has been really painful during the time that I am supposed to ovulate. This could be good news for me that I am ovulating, right? Grammy, I am going to be on day 1 of my cycle when I get this blood work done. Is this terrible? It's kind of hard to get doctor appointments. They will be able to test for free T3 and T4 though
    Thank you for everything you do.

    Amy, don't get your female hormones tested on day 1. Day 20 is the optimal time. getting free T3 and free T4 done anytime is fine. With cysts, progesterone is EVERYTHING. So you need to know what it's doing when it's supposed to go very high. So it's very necessary to get that done at the right time.
