Ovarian Cyst and Bladder Infection
A little over a week ago I started having pains on the left side of my pelvis. Approx. three months ago I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst. However, due to its size (very small) there was not need to do anything and I was prescribed an anti-inflammatory. This paid is now back but getting worse. I saw my gynae yesterday who checked and the cyst is still there although not having grown. Again, I was prescribed with Relisan 500mg (2 tabs twice a day). He picked up a slight bladder infection as well for which I have been prescribed an antibiotic and vaginal cream. At what size can something be done to remove/dissolve this cyst? I feel at times like I am pregnant with the associated emotional mood swings and skin blemishes and at other times, feel like I am having an extremely painful period (just finished last period on 05/01/06). I am extremely exhausted and my sexual drive is non existant (hubby not too happy to say the least). Please help. This is affecting my family life as well as work and I just cannot go on much longer feeling the way I do.

A cyst of less than 4cm is not likely to be causing these problems.
