Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 days 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.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My doc just switched my GERD meds, and I just started the nerve meds too. I also take vitamin supplements, C, D, B, krill oil, and calcium daily.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have a bartholin cyst on the left side and there are small, canker sore like abrasions on it. Only hurts when I touch it or urine touches it. No discharge or itching. Tested negative for hsv 2 but positive for hsv 1
