The Philippines, for all its beauty and diverse culture, is still considered by many as a third world country. Unlike our more ‘modern’ counterparts in other countries, we don’t get a lot of information concerning reproductive health.

This topic of conversation is often considered taboo and many women choose to ignore any irregularities in their menstrual cycle. 

Pinays should consider taking away that frame of mind, especially if they want to become mothers in the future.

In fact, women who notice any problems with their menstrual cycles should strongly consider going to their doctor.

Netizen Caren Ramos Cortez shared her trending experiences about ovarian cysts on Facebook.

Like many Filipinas, Ms. Cortez chose not to check on the irregularities concerning her menstrual cycle. It was only late last year did she find out that she had ovarian cysts.

According to MedScape, Ovarian Endometrioma/Ovarian Cyst is "a benign, estrogen-dependent cyst found in women of reproductive age. Infertility is associated with ovarian endometriomas; although the exact cause is unknown, oocyte quantity and quality are thought to be affected."

"To All The Ladies Out There, I just want to share something and be aware"
"MY OVARIAN CYSTS EXPERIENCE"

So it's started Last week of November 2016 and nung mga panahon na yon was my "Red Alert" so basically dapat December last week magkaron ako dahil regular naman ako and I've never been delayed until mangyare na madelayed ako ng December hanggang 3rd week of January pero masakit na ang puson at tagiliran ko which is sa kaliwa nanggagaling yung pain hindi ko na malaman kase madalas na siyang sumakit even pag nasa work ako hindi ako makagalaw ng maayos dahil sa nararamdaman ko.

But January 23, 2017 nagkaron ako pero hindi siya katulad nung mga past ments ko kase di naman red agad yung lumabas brown e. Lage akong may dysmenorhea pagmeron ako halos mamatay ako na ewan na parang may lalabas na baby sa ano ko. But this time triple yung sakit and this past few months may napansin ako sa tiyan ko para akong preggy ng 2months kase biglang laki ng puson ko.

January 24, 2017 
Nagstart na yung ments ko na halos hindi na ko makatulog paggabi kase masakit na puson ko kasabay ng tigiliran ko. Since yung unang lumabas saakin is brown ngayon pa lang lalabas yung red na ments ko so pag first laging malakas expected ko na yun kase every month naman nangyayare saakin yon so hindi na bago.

January 25 to 29, 2017
May ments padin ako at dito na ko nagtaka kase kung gaano kalakas ang ments ko ng first day ganun padin siya kalakas nawoworry na ko kase feeling ko hindi na siya normal kase sa loob ng isang araw 2-3 pads(napkin) ang nagagamit ko at lahat yon punong puno so pag gabi nag na-night pads na ko kase sobrang lakas.


January 28, 2017
Tanda ko pa nagadvance monthsary pa kami ng Baby ko 29 kase kami and we decided to go MOA Ice Skating Rink to celebrate our day. Kumain naglibot inabot na kami ng Gabi nagrides pa nga kami at alam kong Hindi na talaga maganda yung pakiramdam ko. Kase habang nilalakad ko sarili ko feeling ko may mabigat akong dala dala sa loob ng puson ko, yung pakiramdam ko nanlulumo na pero I tried to be okay kase nga ayokong isipin niyang hindi ako okay. Ayokong nakikita niya akong nahihirapan.

January 29, 2017
Umalis pa kami ni Mama together with Boyfie. Napansin na din ni mama paglaki ng puson ko.

January 30, 2017 
Mama Decided na ipacheck up na ko. So kinakabahan ako kase ayokong malaman na iba na pala yung nararamdaman ko. Pinabalik kame sa result tomorrow.

January 31, 2017
Result Day, babasahin na ni doktora yung findings saakin so nagwiwish padin ako na sana okay lang sana walang problema saakin na dysmenorhea lang at may ipapainom lang na gamot para mawala pero hindi yun yung inexpect ko.

Nakita sa ultrasound at pagkapa saakin na may Ovarian Cysts ako Left and Right Ovary. Left has 9.2 cm na parang kasing laki na ng kamao ng lalaki and Right has 5.4 cm na kasing laki ng kamao ng mga 6-7 years old kid.

They called it Endometrioma Bilateral or Chocolate Cysts Endometriosis is a condition in which cells that normally grow inside as a lining of the uterus (womb), instead grow outside of the uterus in other locations. Sabe ng doctor nasa lahi daw namin yon, which is si Mama may mayoma din before at tinanggal na pero sabe ng doctor na out of 100% ladies nagkakaroon din ng mga 10-20% ang nagkakaroon nun at lumalabas siya out of nowhere. Sabe din ng doctor asap na daw ako kailangan operahan before lumalala at pumutok yon.

February 1, 2017
Pumasok pa ko sa work nagbaka sakaling kayanin ko pa, pero hindi na talaga kaya ika ika nadin ako maglakad at hawak hawak o sapo sapo kona yung puson at tagiliran ko after work its time for me to rest pero nung gabing yon hindi na ko nakatulog , triple yung sakit kase pinapaiyak na niya ko so matinde na talaga. Iniiyakan kona si Mama sa nararamdaman ko at natataranta na siya. Masakit na talaga, hanggang sa i-hot compress muna medjo nawawala pero bumabalik din.

February 2, 2017
Wala akong tulog paidlip idlip lang kaya nagdecide na si Mama na iadmit na ko at itakbo na sa hospital. Hanggang nasa MJ na ko inoobserbahan na ko ng mga doctor nun hanggang sa kinompronta at kinausap na ko ng doctor.
