Could i become infertile????
Hi there.

about two years ago they found a cyst in my ovary the size of a tennis ball.
The gynae i went to put me on Melodene and after taking it for a year i stopped.
I still get sharp pains in my ovary and its very sensitive.Could it still be there and can these things affect your fertility???/
Another thing i have discovered is that the gland in my groin is very swollen and painful,It cant be STD`s or HIV cos both my partner and i have been checked.
What could this be??

Thank You in advance.

The cyst could certainly still be there. I am sure that your doctor asked you to come for a check-up after a few months to see whether the cyst had disappeared. I would suggest that you do this. A simple cyst should not affcet your fertility.
The gland in your groin could be due to an infection or it could be something other than a gland, a hernia for example. Ask your doctor to check this.
Breast problems are not in my area of expertise. They are dealt with by surgeons.
