Learn About The Ovarian Cyst Symptoms

Ovarian cyst is one of the biggest health concerns of women around the world. The number of women suffering from this reproductive problem is quite alarming especially those between the ages 30-60. Women from all walks of life are not exempted from having ovarian cyst. Thus, it is vital that you have a full understanding of the disease in order to lessen the impact of ovarian cyst symptoms in case you already have it.

What exactly is an ovarian cyst? This condition actually starts as a pouch or sac in the ovary. The cyst may have fluid or hard elements or even both. Single or married women are not safe from having this ovarian disease.

But how does the cyst actually grow? Its growth is actually related with the monthly cycle of ovulation of women. Once a hormone is released in the ovary, follicles are produced which look like containers for young eggs and fluids. As the egg finally develops, the follicles rupture which results to the release of the egg. The empty pouches then turn into small sacs known as corpus luteum. But once the follicles do not break and the eggs are not released, ovarian cyst develops.

The usual type of ovarian cyst is called the functional cyst. It can be hard to determine if you have functional cyst because its symptoms are not obvious in its early stage. Some women who already have it are not even aware. But they usually experience its symptoms such as occasional abdominal pain, irregular monthly period, and vomiting. In some cases, the cyst simply shrinks. In order to determine if your cyst is shrinking or not, consult your doctor immediately.

Another type of ovarian cyst you must know is the polycystic ovaries. In this case, the follicle in the ovaries fails to rupture. A lot of women are suffering this type of ovarian cyst making it the most common type of this disease. Furthermore, it contributes to the infertility among women.

Dermoid or Teratoma is another kind of cyst on ovary. It is distinguishable by its mature skin with hair follicles and sweat glands. It can be similar to the ones present on skin tissue, and can also contain fats. The malignant type of this cyst is rare which means it is usually benign. Usually, younger women are the ones more at risk in having this type of cyst. The cyst can grow really big up to six inches in diameter.

Endometroid is another type of cyst on ovaries that can affect the pelvic region especially during menstruation. This happens when the endometrial tissue or the membrane that forms the inner layer of uterin wall starts to grow inside the ovaries. Infertility also develops as a result.

It is important that you know the various symptoms of ovarian cyst. Go to your doctor right away if you notice some of its symptoms. In order to ease your condition, early detection of the disease is necessary.

    Ovarian Cyst is a very complex type of issue that women have to face. In one hand some people say that there isn’t a cure for it, on the other hand many people published good material about natural ways to treat and cure.

    However, it is always a good idea to visit a doctor to get a professional advice from him.

    Kudos to a very informative site. Especially when we’re fronted with a problem like this in our body. Much to our dismay, more often than not, we’d only know it when it’s too late. This site gives us the warning bells to heed.

    Does it mean that if I get ovarian cysts my chances are slim to have a baby? Friends I know who had this had a hard time conceiving a baby. I’m hopeful that in this age of scientific medical breakthroughs everything they would discover a cure for this.

    I had my recent checkup with my OB Gyne and the good news is that I’m clear of ovarian cysts. I just think it’s pretty common that I’m afraid all women will have it at one point or another in their lives, that it doesn’t matter whether we have kids or not, that it’ll just come. Regular checkups would help of course.

    After reading this it got me worried about being infertile, I have to go to the hospital today because they have strong beliefs that I have and ovarian cyst. I plan on having kids though, well I have talked to three or four people that has had an ovarian cyst ( at least two with different types) and they still had kids, unexpected of course. Does having an ovarian cyst necessarily mean that you are completely infertile?

    @Danielle,

    No, it doesn’t.
    As you mentioned in your comment, most of the people get pregnant even though they’ve had an ovarian cyst in the past.

    Most of the time the cyst goes aways naturally but in some extreme cases it’s necessary to have a medical procedure in order to remove it (surgery).

    Most of the women are able to get pregnant AFTER getting treated from the ovarian cyst. That’s NOT a good idea to try to get pregnant before getting rid of the cyst.

    If you are trying to get pregnant, I just found out about a very nice website that provide information on how to increase your chances of getting pregnant. If you are interested you should check it out.

    This is such a great post. With this, I am now aware about the ovarian cysts, the types and where it might lead when left uncured.

    I’m afraid that I might acquire this kind of disease. For every 10 women, 3 of them might have cancerous ovarian cysts and it’s not easy to accept as well as to defeat it.

    It’s really hard to tell if you have ovarian cyst until you see a doctor. Most symptoms are like regular PMS. You can’t tell if your cyst is shrinking or not. It’ll be dangerous if you won’t take precautions.
