Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You should be getting a Ultrasound scan during your Eighth week, this will be spot some problems in your Baby if there are any. Change positions slowly, especially when you move from a lying down position to sitting or from a sitting position to standing to avoid feeling dizzy. If you feel lightheaded, sit down and lower your head or lie down for a moment. Take care not to get overexerted since rapid growth of the baby can compound the burden on your heart, lungs and kidneys. Take your Medications regularly and go for regular follow up. If you happen to develop abnormal vaginal bleeding along with Pain abdomen, you should be seeing your Doctor immediately. You will require further tests then, If not, regular sonogram (Ultrasound) would be enough.

All the Very Best, Wish you Good Health. Take Care.

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 haven t gained weight and no unusual symptoms found.

Hi,



7 weeks ago i had an ovarian cyst aspirated laparoscopically after 18 months of various symtoms including severe pelvic pain, abdominal cramping and bloating,vomitting, loss of appetite, night sweats etc. A week after surgery i had a pelvic ultrasound which showed a 2 1/2 cm cyst on same ovary, the ultrasound has also shown a cyst on my spleen and left kidney. Im very confused and worried and the consultant in my hospital is not seeing me again for another 6 months eventhough im still experiencing all symptoms.
