Kiam, question for you, when yours ruptured, what happened? Did you bleed a lot? I've been bleeding for the past week. That's why I had to have an ultrasound yesterday.

Another question, if anyone knows anything about this. Say I had to have surgery, and they had to remove my ovary. Do you think my chances of ovarian cancer would decrease? lol I mean, with only one ovary, I'd assume that they'd decrease by 50% but I really don't know.

when I was 5 months pregnant with my son I went in for a gender scan and they asked if I was having any pain on my right side? I said no... why? she said I had a cyst the size of a large grapefruit.. never felt it never hurt, and even better, it went away all on its own before I had my c-section. they are very common.

I am so happy that the baby is ok, anything else, nothing can be done until after the baby is born and cysts are very common. If you dont ovulate properly one cycle the follicle can become a cyst so its common. xx

Thanks ladies OMG a grapefruit, that is big, so happy it went away on it's own. Hopefully by my next ultrasound it's gone. I hope I get some good news from the Dr. today. I got at 4. I'm all nervous again, I've been reading on babycenter about lots of women who had to have surgery during their 2nd trimester to remove their cysts. Everything always happens to me so this is just a little worriesome lol With my daughter I think I was int he small % for everything. At the end I was in the small % for having PUPPS rash, then the small % of having 4th degree tears, then the small % that don't heal properly after the 4th degree tears so I had to have reconstructive surgery!!! I just didn't have luck before and am just praying this time is easier for me! LOL
