Right ovarian cyst, uterus thickening and polyp

Hi there, I'm 29 and I recently did my first pap and after a couple of pelvic exams, I was told I have a right ovarian cyst about 4 cm, an uterus polyp and abnormal thickening of the uterus mid-cycle. Do you know what sort of risks (to diseases) I may have? I have always had menstrual pains but now, they seem heavier and more painful and inconsistent. Also, sometimes I have spotting as well. I have not been pregnant but I do hope to have babies later on. I have another blood test scheduled and then, will need to schedule a hysteroscopy and laparoscopy.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your diagnoses of right ovarian cyst (4cm), uterine thickening, and uterine polyp all could be the reason for the painful and heavy periods. These would interfere with your pregnancy chances. Go ahead with the blood tests and the hysteroscopy and laparoscopy to get these treated. Once the ovarian cyst and polyp are removed then you can be put on medications to regulate endometrial thickness and the periods based on your blood tests (blood work-up along with hormonal analysis).
Take care.
