  • You need to go to the doctor for an exam. I have had cysts removed and endometriosis treated. My doctor said that it would all get better after I had my daughter. She is 2 now and my cycles are starting to get crazy to the doctor again...maybe consider going on the pill to regulate your cycle?

  • My friend had this happen to her in High School, the doctors didn't find anything wrong with her, but she looked like she was 6 months pregnant. But she wasn't, and they couldn't find anything, however after high school, she moved to Florida and they found a tumor (non cancerous) in her stomach area that was the size of a basketball that her doctors in MI didn't look for. So not to worry you, but you may want them to do a body scan thing.

  • Get a NEW OBGYN and get an ultra sound exam to see whats causing these problems! Dosnt sound normal to me and cysts on your ovaries can be very serious! Being young might have been ok but 38? past child bearing? Get it checked out by a more qualifyed OBGYN

  • Sounds like Fibroid Tumors to me. Check with your gyn and they can tell you for sure. At your age, there may be hormones to shrink them rather than surgery and if they are really large, it may take surgery.
