This is a direct quote (and almost the entirety of) a letter my specialist sent me. My follow up isn't for several weeks. Anyone have any idea of what the implications of this are? (We are starting to think about having kids.) I take it this is different that polycystic ovarian syndrome (which I do not have symptoms of)? You might be a doctor, or maybe you just have some personal experience with this? I've done some google/webmd searching but nothing talks about cysts that aren't pathological.
He is a urogynocologist/obstetrician that I've been seeing for urinary tract/bladder pain, which has all but entirely cleared up through trigger point therapy and myofacial release. (YAY) Thanks!
