Sometimes women may think that they have uterine fibroids when they actually have ovarian cysts which is one of the conditions similar to fibroids. While most ovarian cysts do not cause problems for the women that have them and may actually go away on their own, for many other women, ovarian cysts may produce painful symptoms. There are many ways to treat these cysts on the ovaries including using various natural treatment for ovarian cysts methods.
What are Ovarian Cysts?
These are fluid filled sacs that may form on the ovaries. These cysts can also be filled with a semi-fluid substance as well as hair fragments, teeth fragments, sweat, oil ,etc.
Most ovarian cysts are small but they can grow to any size. Depending on their size, location and type, they can either present no problems and go away on their own or they can cause painful symptoms.
They affect women between the ages of 20 and 50. They can affect one or both ovaries and can be singular or grow in groups. Most are benign (non cancerous) like uterine fibroids.
It is unknown why these cysts develop on the ovaries. Their development is thought to arise from an abnormal egg, an egg that is not released by the ovaries, abnormalities in the ovary, etc.
Cysts are commonly thought to develop in ovulating women when an egg is released from the ovary during the period of ovulation. Once the egg is released, the area from which the egg sprung from continues to produce a hormone like fluid which can cause hormonal imbalance (and increased progesterone). Usually after two weeks from ovulation, this cyst will break down and disappear which usually coincides with the menstrual cycle.
In a few other cases, this ovarian cyst does not collapse but continues to grow. These ovarian cysts usually do not require treatment and cause no issues and may disintegrate at some point.
When you experience the various symptoms of ovarian cysts such as acne, abnormal vaginal bleeding, swelling in the lower abdomen, frequent urination, nausea, fever, painful sexual intercourse, etc, treatment may be necessary.
Treatments for Cysts on Ovaries
Ovarian cysts may be treated with various conventional methods such as oral contraceptives, pain killers as well as the surgical removal of the cysts or surgical removal of the entire ovaries (and cysts).
If surgery is something that you want to avoid, there are ways to treat ovarian cysts naturally.
Natural cures for ovarian cysts start as simply as;
