  • 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.

    Hell yes they could cause weight gain! The progesterone alone could do it! Not to mention all the other meds...
