I had a large simple ovarian cyst all throughout my recent pregnancy. My son was born 1/31 and I've had two ultrasounds since then to check on the cysts.
My first follow-up ultrasound showed the cyst on the right side was still 6cm. There was also a new 2cm complex cyst on the left ovary.
My most recent follow-up ultrasound shows the right side has gone down to 3cm and the left cyst has gone up to 3cm. Both cysts have low level internal echoes and septations.
The conclusion on the report is that I have bilateral complex ovarian cysts that may represent hemorrhagic cysts or endometriomas. Follow up in 2-3 months.
My doctor is recommending followup in 6 months, not 2-3. I have read complex ovarian cysts are more concerning. I'm bothered that they want to wait 6 months instead of 2 or 3.
I'm just looking for some opinions on what I should do. Should I get a second opinion?
