Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

  • I am a 23 year old female. I am not yet married.
  • In October 2013, I had a laparoscopic removal of a chocolate cyst measuring 10cm.
  • The doctor suggested me tablet Ovral-L.
  • But, after that I had aneurysm and could not take those tablets.
  • Now, when I got scanning done 4 days ago, they found 2 chocolate cysts size 4cm and 3cm.
  • What should I do now?
  • Is it possible for me to get pregnant after marriage?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Yes, there are chances for the recurrence of chocolate cyst.

Usually the cyst wall is removed while doing cystectomy (removal of the cyst) to decrease the chances of recurrence.

For this, you can consult your gynaecologist and take only progesterones or GnRH agonists (Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Agonists).

  • It is not necessary that these cysts will certainly cause symptoms and moreover the size of the cysts are small yet.
  • But they can grow as well.
  • There are chances of pregnancy. So, do not get worried.
  • Pregnancy depends on so many factors.

You can get your ovulation study done to see the number and size of developing follicles and their rupture, which means ovulatory cycles.

If you are planning for a pregnancy then best will be to get a diagnostic laparoscopy done which will confirm the actual status of the cyst along with tubal patency, etc., and so many other things.
