I hear ya. I was just recently diagnosed with a 6cm cyst and the doctor put me on birth control but since then the pain has been comming more often and actually on a scale from 1-10 my pain is like a 5 or 6. I called the doctor today. That would be the best thing for you. I was given percocet in the ER but because it is a controlled medication I could not have it refilled. Unfortunately a half a percocet really took the pain away. Good Luck!

I would suggest going to see a specialist such as a reproductive endocrinologist.

I have been told that i have a cyst but the doctor didnt tell me how big it was. the doctor said that is why that i had my tuble pregnancy, that i miscarried. I have severe pain in my stomach could that be from the cyst? not sure.

Yes cysts can cause pain and it can be severe when they rupture. Here are a couple of links about ovarian cysts (which are usually benign) -
Ovarian cysts and ovarian cancer

Hope you're feeling better by now! So sorry you had to go through a tubal pregnancy!
