Ovarian Cysts and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

General Infomation

Ovarian Cysts Causes Symptoms and Natural Herbal Cure

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled growths in a woman’s ovaries. This may happen in just one or both of the ovaries. Some ovarian cysts are harmless and often go away on their own and others are very troublesome if they grow very big and rupture, or cause damage to the ovary.

They may grow very big and cause displacement of the reproductive organs or twist themselves. Damage from a ruptured ovarian cyst may cause scar tissue build-up, and/or the formation of adhesion, attaching the ovary to other parts of the internal body.

Ovarian cysts are most common in women of childbearing years, but can rarely develop in postmenopausal women. A woman’s ovaries are about the size and shape of an almond.

Types of Ovarian Cysts

Functional Ovarian Cysts

During a woman’s natural cycle the ovaries produce follicles, which are like a cyst and contain the egg to be released during ovulation. As ovulation nears, the follicle begins to grow. Follicles also produce and release both estrogen and progesterone. An ovarian cyst that forms due to a malfunction in the follicle is known as a functional cyst. There are two types of functional cysts:

Follicular cyst: This happens when the follicle fails to rupture and release the egg at ovulation, it continues to grow forming a cyst.

Corpus Luteum cyst: This happens when the follicle does release the egg at ovulation. The follicle changes to what is called the corpus luteum. The opening in the follicle where the egg was released seals off, accumulating fluid, causing the corpus luteum to grow into a cyst.

Dermoid cyst: These cysts are considered complex and develop from cells that produce human eggs. Because of this, these types of cyst may contain hair, teeth, or skin. They are rarely cancerous.

Cystadenomas: This type of cyst develops from ovarian tissue and is filled with liquid or mucous.

Endometriomas: This type of cyst forms when endometrial cells attach to the ovary and form a growth (endometriosis).

The above 3 types of ovarian cysts may cause damage to the ovary, including twisting, scar tissue and adhesion formation. Both Dermoid and Cystadenomas may cause the ovary to become very large and displaced.

Polycystic ovaries: This is associated with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, the ovary may be enlarged, usually twice the size of a normal ovary. A polycystic ovary develops many small cysts in a row, looking like a strand of pearls on the surface of the ovary. PCOS is a common endocrine disorder. Not all women diagnosed with PCOS have ovaries that have these types of cysts.

What Causes Ovarian Cysts?

Irregular menstrual cycles
Hormonal imbalance
Cigarette smoking
Early menstruation (11 years or younger)
Increased upper body fat
Infertility treatment with gonadotropins, this may cause multiple large cysts.
Use of Clomiphene (Clomid, Serophene) has been shown to increase the risk for development of Corpus Luteum cyst.
Use of Tamoxifen for breast cancer


Signs and Symptoms of Ovarian Cysts

Most ovarian cysts have no signs or symptoms. They are discovered during a routine physical exam. The larger a cyst is, the more likely it is to cause symptoms. Symptoms may be:

Pelvic pain, usually on the side where the cyst is present. Pain may be sharp, sudden or come and go throughout the cycle.
Irregular menstrual cycles.
Irregular cycles may signal follicular cyst. Charting your cycle can help you to determine if you are having irregular cycles.
Pelvic pain after intercourse or strenuous exercise.
Nausea and vomiting, this usually happens after a cyst ruptures.
Vaginal pain with spotty bleeding.
Pressure and/or abdominal bloating, may be noticeable on one side or the other.
Pain or pressure in the abdomen when urinating or passing stool

If you suspect you have an ovarian cyst, you should one of these tests.

Endovaginal Ultrasound uses a vaginal ultrasound probe is inserted into the vagina. This type of ultrasound has been found to produce a better image of ovarian cysts than ultrasound through the abdominal wall.

CT or MRI may be used if there is further concern.

Medical Options for Ovarian Cyst Treatment

The number one medical hospital treatment for ovarian cysts is to prescribe birth control pills. This prevents ovulation, therefore the formation of functional ovarian cysts cannot happen. This presents a problem though, one – it prevents pregnancy, and two – it may cause long-term hormonal imbalance, and three, it does not solve the root of the cause.

How Natural Therapies May Help with Ovarian Cysts

For functional cysts, there are natural options that are very effective. We like to approach it at two different levels. Clearing out and prevention. Our treatments clear out excess estrogens and cysts while working to prevent future ones from being created.

Reduce Estrogen

Excess estrogen is one of the main culprits to causing hormonal imbalance which then causes disordered ovulation. One of the best ways to rid the body of excess estrogens is to stop exposing yourself to xenohormones.

Avoid exposure to estrogens and xenoestrogens by

Stop eating soy foods
Eat only organic meats and dairy
Do not microwave foods in plastic
Stop drinking water from plastic bottles
Avoid mineral oil and perabens in skin care products
Use natural detergents.

Our Ovarian Cysts Remedy Kit helps to clear the body of these excess estrogens, aiding in hormonal balance and reducing the promotion of cyst growth.

Natural Progesterone: When there is excess estrogen in the body, there is usually also progesterone deficiency. Balancing your estrogen and progesterone levels by boosting natural progesterone will help reduce the ovarian cysts and reduce the chances of them occurring in the future.

We have learned the main cause of functional cysts is hormonal imbalance, which disrupts the natural menstrual cycle and may lead to the formation of ovarian cysts. It is vital to bring the body back to a state of balance to prevent the formation of ovarian cysts.
