In simple words, ovarian cysts are nothing but small sacs occurring inside the ovaries and are full of fluids. They are generally asymptomatic in nature. These cysts generally resolve themselves within a few months' time. But when that does not happen or symptoms like pain, discomfort etc accompany these cystic structures, it then leads to the ovarian cyst syndrome.
Adverse Effects of Ovarian Cysts
Most cysts are harmless in nature i.e. benign. But some could turn malignant or cancerous . Simple symptoms accompanying ovarian cysts are pain in the abdomen, a bloated feeling, problem in bladder functioning and pain during intercourse. There can also be a complicated ovarian cyst where there is bleeding, rupture and pain.
Physiological Ovarian Cysts
In woman of reproductive age, ovarian cysts are quite common. As these cysts form a part of the general ovarian function, they are termed as 'physiological ovarian cysts'. These structures are small in size and usually disappear on their own. But sometimes the cystic structure might get filled with blood, or the fluid itself might make the cyst to grow. It can be painful too. They might cause irregular menstrual cycle as well. The cyst might burst or get twisted and lead to severe pain.
Pathological Ovarian Cysts
The cystic structures that are formed during the process of ovulation but do not part in the procedure, are called 'pathological ovarian cysts'. They can be divided broadly into two parts, 'benign' and 'malignant'. Some of these cysts might contain mucous and blood as well. These cysts might grow large in months or even weeks.
The best cyst removal method is through the holistic approach. The holistic method addresses the root causes of the problem unlike the conventional treatments and even natural treatments for PCOS that only address the symptoms of the problem.
