UNDERSTANDING ovarian cysts
Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that form on or within the ovaries. They are a common gynecological condition and can occur during a woman’s reproductive years. Ovarian cysts can vary in size, ranging from small, asymptomatic cysts to larger ones that may cause discomfort and disrupt hormonal balance.
The development of ovarian cysts can be influenced by various factors, including hormonal imbalances, irregular menstrual cycles, endocrine disorders, or underlying medical conditions. While most ovarian cysts are benign and resolve on their own without intervention, some cysts may persist or grow larger, leading to symptoms and potential complications.
Symptoms of ovarian cysts
If you have ovarian cysts, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Pelvic pain or discomfort, ranging from mild to severe
- Abdominal bloating or swelling
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Painful periods or pelvic pain during intercourse
- Frequent urination or urinary urgency
- Difficulty getting pregnant or infertility (in some cases)
