  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I am 51 years of age and only have 1 ovary left as I had a hysterectomy in 2004. I saw my gynecologist for my yearly and it was timely as two weeks prior I was having tenderness in my ovary. She did an ultrasound two days ago and I am waiting on the results. I was prone to cysts, which is why only this ovary remains. I have been on Latuda for approximately several months and have not had any blood work done yet. I am wondering if prolactin levels can cause cysts to occur and if anyone has experienced this.
