Most physicians approach the treatment of ovarian cysts by prescribing hormonal pills or recommending surgery. But, essentially they’re applying temporary remedies with the hope that the cysts do not reoccur and will cease on their own. Unfortunately this rarely happens.
Women who suffer the pain and discomfort caused by recurring cysts will continue to suffer until they take steps to change the way their bodies are functioning.
There are different types of ovarian cysts; the most common is a functional cyst. It forms during ovulation when the egg is not released or the pocket holding the egg does not dissolve after the egg’s release.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) generates many small cysts that form in the ovaries.
While most women will have one or more cyst sometime in their life, most will go unaware of a cyst’s existence. But some cysts are very obvious. They are painful and can cause biological and hormonal problems that limit a woman’s ability to become pregnant.
Finding the most effective treatment that suits a woman physically and emotionally is critical.
Symptoms of cysts include
o Lower back ache
o Menstrual pain or abnormal bleeding
o Upset stomach
o Bloating or abdominal pain
o Difficulty urinating
o Frequent need to urinate
o Pain during sexual intercourse
o Weight gain
o Appetite loss
Ovarian cysts particularly harmful to health can generate symptoms including
o Severe abdominal pain
o Shortness of breath and/or rapid breathing
Only when you visit your doctor and undergo basic tests, such as an ultrasound scan, will you learn if a cyst is causing your symptoms and if treatment is necessary.
Birth control pills
While birth control pills serve as an important factor in eliminating many medical ills, such pills have a limited impact on women suffering from ovarian cysts.
Birth control pills regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle by preventing the ovary from releasing an egg. However, when a woman ceases taking such pills, her cyst-related problems will return. And an extensive amount of evidence supports the assertion that ingesting birth control pills for extended periods of time can damage a woman’s health.
Surgery is often suggested as a treatment of ovarian cysts. Even though “keyhole” laparoscopic surgery used to remove ovarian cysts is done through a small incision, risk is involved. Plus such surgery is costly, leaves scars and introduces the threat of infection. And on top of it all, surgery can’t prevent future cysts from forming.
Natural methods that reduce the occurrence and size of ovarian cysts and ultimately eliminate them rely on
o Restoring the body’s natural hormonal balance
o Helping the body’s natural ability to overcome pain
o Maintaining a diet that helps to prevent cysts
o Exercises that limit cyst complications
o Stress-reducing exercises that help to limit cyst formation
o Changes in lifestyle such as starting a higher fiber diet
It’s difficult for anyone who has never suffered from an ovarian cyst to imagine the amount of pain a woman must endure from day-to-day because of such cysts. The most effective way to cure ovarian cysts and keep them from coming back is to determine and attack the root problem.
Thankfully, many women who rely on natural remedies soon see that such methods work for them, which results in their ability to live pain free when it comes to ovarian cysts.
