Read this article to know all about ovarian cyst and ovulation.
Ovarian cysts are normal, benign (non-cancerous) fluid-filled sacs that form on or near the surface of the ovaries which appear and disappear during the menstrual cycle of a healthy female of childbearing age. Nevertheless, they may pose medical problems if they continue remaining in the ovaries, enlarge in size and/or create pain and other complications. Cysts appearing during usual activities of the ovaries are broadly called functional cysts (as they assist in the normal functioning of the ovaries) which again are sub-divided into two categories, namely, the follicular cyst and the luteal cysts.
Undeveloped eggs are usually stored in tiny tube-like structures called follicles in the ovaries and during the menstrual cycle of a female, an egg matures inside one of the follicles when it fills up with a liquid called liquor follicul that provides nourishment to the egg. This is the common trait of a follicular cyst.
As the egg is released into the fallopian tube at the time of the ovulation, the follicle ruptures or breaks, while the fluid drains away. Very often, slight abdominal pain is associated with ovulation, typically known as Mittelschmerz (a German word, meaning the 'middle pain'). The pain may last for a few minutes with some women while with others it may prolong for several days. Some amount of vaginal bleeding may also accompany the release of the egg from the follicle.
Another type of functional cyst known as luteal cyst forms on the ovaries where the egg was released. This cyst is responsible for the production of a significant female hormone called progesterone which controls the female reproductive cycle. But the luteal cyst must disappear if pregnancy does not occur as otherwise abnormalities may occur in the menstrual cycle, creating problems later on. Alternatively, irregularities in the menstrual cycle often cause cysts to stay as well as grow in the ovaries. For example, some follicles remain even after the egg is released, filled with fluid while in some cases the egg is not released in the appropriate way, allowing the follicle to keep on growing. Not unlike follicular cysts, luteal cysts can also behave abnormally, developing symptoms of a fallopian pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy, more so when they break open, causing acute pain associated with bleeding. Bleeding may also occur during when the cysts breaks naturally before going away.
The holistic approach has become popular in recent years as a cure for many diseases including ovarian cysts. 'Holism' has been linked to maintaining good health for years now, but it has been integrated with the mainstream 'Health care System' is a recent development. The fact is, the holistic approach cures cysts in the ovary completely, and it also prevents its occurring through altered diet, healthy habits and change of lifestyle. Holistic method is not merely a technique adopted in curing a disease condition; it is an ideal concept for doing so, involving a mighty lot of factors that govern our bodily functions. Yes ovarian cyst and ovulation problems can be effectively cured with the holistic approach.
