Have Any Of You Been Diagnosed With Endometrial Hyperplasia?

Have Any Of You Been Diagnosed With Endometrial Hyperplasia?

It is rare in women under 35 however, upon receiving the diagnosis yesterday I have learned that it PCOS have much higher chance of developing it. Also women w/PCOS who develop Complex Hyperplasia w/Atypia are at a approx. 50% higher risk for developing endometrial cancer (scientific studies varied on the exact percentage). Anyway, while I wait for my appointment with the gyno oncologist I just wondered if any of you have been through this and what your journey had been like.

Has Anyone Ever Had An Ovarian Cyst Removed?

Has Anyone Ever Had An Ovarian Cyst Removed?

I had an ovarian cystectomy in early Feb this year to remove an ovarian cyst from my right ovary (left ovary is fine, but the fallopian tube is blocked, but my ovary and fallopian tube are the complete opposite), which was 11cm. During the first couple of months after my operation my periods sermed to have settled down, but in these last few months them seemed to have gone back to how they were before I had my operation. The worst one was early to middle of this month when my periods had decided… read more
