  • during a normal period, women get cysts, I don't know why but they are usually flushed away and sometimes they somehow get attached to your ovaries, I have had many and they've gone away on their own. I have also had some removed while having my endometreosis burned off.

  • I have a cyst on my ovary the size of an orange. My doctor said it's common to have cysts after a pregnancy, but I'm going back next Friday to get it checked out again...
    Not sure what causes them though...
