Teacher told sex pain was due to partners big penis had 10lb cycst removed

A teacher has had a 10.5lb ovarian cyst removed from her abdomen after doctors had originally suggested her partner’s penis was “too big” after she complained of being in pain while having sex.

The abscess, which grew to 28cm across, contained a gallon of fluid, while the woman’s right ovary and fallopian tube — where the cyst was — had to be removed, but her left ones are still in tact.

Raquel Rodriguez, 25, from Minnesota, went to see doctors five years ago about the cyst – which scans revealed at the time was around 8cm wide – and also about the sudden pangs of pain she was getting.

Doctors told her at the time that the cyst did not need to be removed, while one particular medic pointed out that her pains were probably as a result of “her partner being ‘too big’” and that she “should have ‘shallower sex’”.

Others told her the pain was likely down to cramps or bloating and they were nothing to worry about.

But last year, the cyst began to grow at such an alarming rate, that the pre-school teacher started to look pregnant, with friends puzzled as to why she had not divulged she was “expecting”.

Four weeks ago, Raquel had a two-hour operation at Memorial Hospital to remove the abscess and she has now fully recovered.

Describing when the cyst became quite large, she told TODAY: “I looked and felt pregnant.

“People were asking me, ‘when are you due?’. I had friends saying, ‘I didn’t know you were pregnant! Why didn’t you tell me?’.

“I laugh now but it’s not really funny. My hair was falling out, I was in a ton of pain and I was losing weight without trying.”

Ovarian cysts are when a fluid-filled sac forms on the side of the ovaries often during ovulation, when an egg is released, with Raquel revealing it may have been caused by a urinary tract infection and sepsis she suffered in 2017.

Doctors say ovarian cysts are very common and normally disappear without causing any symptoms. But Raquel had a mucinous cyst, which needed to be removed before it grew any larger.

In an update a week after her surgery, she said: “I have been doing really well. So far, so good.”
