thank you for writing to HCM
the cysts might be functional or corpus luteal cyst which disappear normally

there is no need to be so stressed
however it will be worthwhile checking your husband's sprem count and motility

if found to be normal you can try for a couple of months and the plan further treatment if you do not get pregnant
wish you all the best

Hi mam, my husband semen analysis test report says Viscosity is 7.8 , Total Sperm Concentration is 120 million/ml , Percentage Motility is 75% , Normal Morphology is 80 % , Longevity is 2 hours . Does his reports are normal ? If yes then what could be the reason that am not getting pregnant despite having intercourse at the time of ovulation ? Should i also start taking folic acid tablets ? Please help me. Thank u

hello again

Is the sperm survival is only 2 hours?
Then it requires assessment

please check with the lab that after 2 hours if the sperms have not survived
If so it need further evaluation

If that is normal then you can try for 2 more cycles and if not you need to consult for further investigations

wish you all the best

Hi Doctor,In my ultrasound scan it was detected i have bulky left ovary with size 4.9x3.7cm with multiple cysts. Few blood hemorrages are also found. Now i am advised to use Contraceptive pills everyday for 3 cycles. This will stop me from conceiving. Is this really to worry ? Since my Right ovary is normal should i wait or start with the medication? Need to mention i have regular periods (27-29 days cycle) with normal flow.

I have a past with ovarian cysts. Not a fun one. I m 16 years old and have had 3 surgeries to remove them. This last one, they didn t remove. I had crippling pain for months. I still have the pain but it s dulling down. yet I can still feel pressure. I have had doctor after doctor tell me it s all in my head so don t try that. I ve been to countless counselors, therapists, psychiatrists, they can t find anything wrong with my mental health. Ovarian cancer is very prevalent in my family history. Should I be concerned?
