Biconical uterus; cyst; bleeding.
A little bit of background information... I am 20 years old, have been dating my current boyfriend for two years now. About eight months ago, I began bleeding during intercourse. I went to see my GYN and had a pap (which came back normal; I have never had an abnormal pap) but she ordered an ultrasound to check things out.
The results showed a small cyst on my left ovary, and that I had a biconical(?) uterus. Instead of being balloon shaped, it has a kind of valley that dips down in the middle. I didn't think to ask to see the ultrasound pictures, because it was all a bit much to take in at once, but the way my doctor discribed it lead me to believe it is a rather deep valley.
As for the bleeding, my doctor said it was due to the lining of my uterus shedding... which she said was a normal hormonal change.
I am going back in August to have a second ultrasound to see if the cyst is still present; if it is, she said it may be a binine turmor that needs to be removed.
Although I am not wanting children at this particular time in my life, my boyfriend and I have been making major future plans, including children. Will my condidtions prevent me from being able to conceive? I know my uterus increases the risk of misscarriage... and I'm afraid that a surgery on my ovary could further complicate things.
Everyone keeps telling me that "things will work out" and that "women are told they can't have children everyday, and still do," but I haven't been able to get it off my mind. I'm really very upset about all this. If anyone has any information or advice, please let me know.
