I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this too. Since having my second child, I get cramps and soreness and bloating around ovulation, more so than around the time of my period. This seems to be the case whether I'm on the pill or not. I find it very odd. Anyone have any idea why this could be?
@haymumof2 there were several endometriotic cysts on the left ovary, the largest of which was just over 5cm. There was a dermoid cyst on the right ovary which I was told at ultrasound was 8.2cm - however the nurse who sat with me in recovery said it was bigger than they expected when they went in so they had to make a larger incision than normal to remove it. It was actually closer to 10cm in the end!
So basically - one was the size of a satsuma, the other was as big as an orange.
