      Homeopathic Medicines & Treatment for Ovarian Cysts, Ovary Pain Neuralgia, Ovaritis

      #Apis mellifica. [Apis]
      Few remedies cause as many ovarian symptoms as Apis. It has an active congestion of the right ovary going on to ovaritis, with soreness in the inguinal region, burning, stinging and tumefaction. Ovarian cysts in their incipiency have been arrested by this remedy; here one of the indicating features is numbness down the thigh. It has also proved useful in affections of the left ovary. Tightness of the chest may also be present, with the occurrence of a reflex cough and urging to urinate. Mercurius corrosivus. Hughes prefers this remedy in ovarian neuralgia. Peritoneal complications also indicate it. Bovista has also cured ovarian tumors.

      #Belladonna. [Bell]
      As this remedy is one particularly adapted to glandular growths it is especially useful in acute ovaritis, and more so if the peritoneum be involved. The pains are clutching and throbbing, worse on the right side, the slightest jar is painful, and the patient is extremely sensitive. The symptoms appear suddenly; flushed face and other Belladonna symptoms are present. Platinum. Ovaries sensitive, burning pains in them, bearing down, chronic ovarian irritation with sexual excitement. Much ovarian induration is present. Palladium. Swelling and induration of right ovary.

Very useful in ovarian irritation in nervous, irritable women. Hypochondriacal moods.

      #Lachesis. [Lach]
      Pain in left ovary relieved by a discharge from the uterus; can bear nothing heavy on region. Hughes and Guernsey seem to think that Lachesis acts even more prominently on the right ovary; others believe the opposite, the tendency of affections being, however, to move from the left toward the right side. Suppuration and chronic enlargements of ovary may call for Lachesis. Zincum. Boring in the left ovary relieved by the flow, somewhat better from pressure; fidgety feet. Graphites. Swelling and induration of the left ovary; also pains in the right ovarian region with delayed scanty menses. Argentum metallicum. Bruised pain in left ovary and sensation as if ovary were growing large. Naja. Violent crampy pain in left ovary. Dr. Hughes valued it in obscure ovarian pains not inflammatory in nature.

      #Arsenicum. [Ars]
      Burning tensive pains in the ovaries, especially in the right. Ovaritis relieved by hot applications. Patient thirsty, irritable and restless. Colocynth. Ovarian colic; griping pains, relieved by bending double; stitching pains deep in right ovarian region. It is also a useful remedy,according to Southwick, in ovaritis of left ovary with colicky pains. A dropsical condition may be present. Hamamelis. Ovaritis and ovarian neuralgia. Ludlam praises this remedy in the sub-acute form of gonorrhoeal ovaritis; it allays the pain and averts the menstrual derangement. Ovaritis after a blow. There is agonizing soreness all over the abdomen. An external application of hot extract of Hamamelis acts marvelously in subduing the distress and pain consequent to ovaritis. Iodine. Congestion or dropsy of the right ovary. Dwindling of the mammae; dull, pressing, wedge-like pain, extending from right ovary to uterus like a plug, worse during menstruation. Thuja. Left-sided ovaritis, with suspicion of veneral taint, calls for Thuja. Grumbling pains in the ovaries all the time, with mental irritability, call for Thuja. Podophyllum has a pain in the right ovary, running down the thigh of that side. Numbness may be an attending symptom.

  3. QUESTION:
    I’ve been having a burning sensation on the lower left side of my abdomen.?
    I’ve been having a burning sensation on the lower left side of my abdomen for a couple months now. It comes and goes. Some days its more frequent than others and some days it wont even happen. It doesn’t exactly hurt but it causes some discomfort.
    I’ve had an ovarian cyst before and it gave me huge pain but this pain is nothing like that. Its like a sharp pain/burning but its very dull most of the time.

  4. QUESTION:
    Ovarian Cysts and Nonconventional nonsurgical treatment?
    I was diagnosed with somewhat large cysts on both ovaries this summer. One cyst is complex (which means it could be an endometrioma or a dermoid cyst) and the other looks like a large fluid or blood filled cyst but they don’t know for sure. The doctors are recommending surgery but I don’t want to try surgery as of yet. I am currently on birth control pills to help with cysts and I also am going to try some natural therapies from a licensed Naturopath. I have a question for you guys. Should I continue taking the birth control pills along with the herbal and Chinese medicines or should I stop the birth control pills and just take the natural remedies? I began the pill in late August and if actually feels as if one of my cyst has grown larger since then. I also have some breast tenderness. A lot of people say that birth control pills are “toxic” and if I’m going to do natural medicine, then I should just do that. What do you all think? Any advice would be much appreciated.
    I don’t have any children.

  5. QUESTION:
    Why do I get a sharp pain when I pee?
    Today after I peed I had a sharp pain go to my belly button. I also had a dull left side pain for about a week.
    I use to get ovarian cyst all the time, but now I take medicine for it. Could an ovarian cyst cause this? My sister use to get UTI’s when we where younger. Could a UTI cause this?
    Thanks for any help!

    • ANSWER:
      It could be a UTI. Other common signs of a UTI are you needed to pass urine often but when you go to the toilet you only pass a tiny amount before a burning sensation starts. Go to your doctor, he will test a urine sample and let you know. Dont leave a UTI to sort its self out, not only is it uncomfortable but if left long enough it can effect your kidneys

Poly Ovarian Cysts Disease

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What types of Diseases or Disorder keep you from getting pregnant?
    I’ve been trying to conceive for about 2 years now and my doctor said he might want to do test to see if I had a diseases or disorder that can prevent me from having a baby. Can you help by listing some & telling me what the side effects and what they do to you?

    • ANSWER:
      PCOS or poly cystic ovarian syndrome causes painful ovarian cysts, weight gain, hormone imbalances, skin tags, irregular periods, and facial hair.

      Thyroid condition either hypo or hyper can make you not conceive.

      If you aren’t getting enough folic acid in your diet that can prevent conception as well. My suggestion is to start taking prenatal vitamins. Make sure you are eating more chicken and fish. Fresh fruits and vegetables and nuts like almonds. Have your thyroid and other hormone levels checked and go from there

      Good luck to you.

  2. QUESTION:
    What could be the cause of my no period/ hormonal changes?
    Ok, first off, obviously this is not Joseph. I’m his wife. I haven’t had a period in 6 months, I’ve gained about 30 lbs in those past 6 months, most of which occurred in the first 4. I had labs done by an Endo. He was checking for prolactinoma because I was also experiencing breast milk leakage. The only thing elevated in my hormones was androstenedione. Im assuming this is causing the facial and other unpleasant hair growth as well as my acne :( i was also referred to a gyno who has prescribed provera 10 mg for 10 days. I know it can take up to 2 weeks for a period, I’ve been off the medication for a week now, so I still have one more week to go. The gyno is also running a cbc because I’m extremely exhausted. I mean it’s to the point where I have to decide between a morning jog or cleaning my house because there is no possible way I’m going to have the energy to do both. Also my vision seems blurry, like it takes longer to adjust?? My biggest issue, however is my mental capacity. The Endo also referred me to a psychologist. She diagnosed social anxiety (that I already knew), but she also diagnosed mild depression. I am not depressed. Since all this started, I have had difficulty thinking straight. My mind is foggy and scattered. I can barely focus long enough to cook a meal or fold laundry. My memory has been so shotty. I couldn’t remember if I had washed my sons hair in the bath and I had to even count my pills a few times because I couldn’t remember if I had even taken my provera. Also,I am ridiculously irritable. That is very out of the ordinary for me. I am usually quite passive. In all honesty this head situation is the worst out of all my problems…and i also want to stress, i was a size 7 before all of this, so no, my weight didn’t cause this…something caused the weight gain as well as everything else.

    I should also note my mother had ovarian cancer,my sister has endometriosis, and my other sister had ovarian cysts…also, my grandmother is a diabetic

    • ANSWER:
      The cause of your no period and hormonal changes could be Poly-cystic ovary disease or endometriosis…..

  3. QUESTION:
    What can cause missing periods and severe cramps?
    Ever since I had my first period I have skipped ever other period and had terrible cramps.

    Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Endometriosis, or Poly-cystic ovarian syndrome can cause missing periods and severe cramps

  4. QUESTION:
    Is there a complete and permanent cure for poly cystic ovarian disease in homeopathy?

    • ANSWER:
      homeopathy has an answer for PCOD. The patient’s hormonal levels return to normal, their periods become more regular and they may even be able to conceive after homeopathic treatment. The sonography may show a reduction in the number and size of the cysts in the ovaries after homeopathy. The patient also has to work towards reducing the weight since that is also an important contributing factor.

  5. QUESTION:
    Has anyone out there used Loestrin 24 to treat their PCOS?
    After an ultrasound and a bit of conversation my obgyn gave me some Loestrin 24 Fe to take. Previous birth control has made me gain weight, become moodier, and increased my number of ovarian cysts. So, needless to say I am a bit hesitant. Any reviews of this product used to treat Poly cystic Ovarian Syndrome would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi! i am 14 years old and I suffer from PCOS. I have had it for about 4 months now. A product you may want to try if the Loestrin 24 Fe is the Nortrel 1/35. I tried the Loestrin 24 Fe and it personally didn’t work to well for me. Here’s my story about PCOS-
      I’ve always had irregular periods. I knew something was very wrong when I started not getting period anymore by August 2009. By August I had already had a period every month for 4 years. I went to my General Practitioner and he just said it was cause by 3 things- A. me traveling B. My stress level and C. my hormones. After that doctors appt. i was like is he a freaking moron. ive been traveling, been under a lot of stress, and had hormones since i first started my period and i still kept getting them. In about March 2010 I decided to take action and go to an OBGYN. He ended up telling me that i had a somewhat severe case of an uncurable disease called PCOS. He said that even though it was uncurable it was in deed treatable. He told me that i couldn’t get “rebellious” and just not take the medicine and that if i did get “rebellious” i would most likely not get my period any more and i would have greater risk factors having to do with my health. I have been taking Nortrel 1/35 for about 3 months now and I have already gotten my PCOS under control.

      I hope this helped you and/or conforted you to let you knoow your not alone.

Symptoms Of Stomach Cancer In Dogs

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Are there symptoms of stomach cancer in dogs?
    My Westie is 11 years old and is generally in good health. Lately he has been acting like he feels sick right after eating. He eats dry kibbles, the same kind he’s always eaten and they’ve never affected him before. I’m overly cautious about him so I always fear the worst and want to make sure he doesn’t have stomach cancer but I haven’t been able to find anything about if dogs exhibit symptoms. Anyone know?

    • ANSWER:
      I would think loss of appetite, sick to stomach, maybe bloody stool. My husband was diagnosed with stomach cancer earlier this year with no symptoms at all. Thankfully it was caught early.

  2. QUESTION:
    What is the cause of uncontrollable peeing for an 85 year old man?
    My grandpa feels like he’s going to faint (just happened right now), and for the past month or so he’s been peeing uncontrollably, at random times, an urgency to go pee. He went to the doctors and they think its cancer, but I honestly think it can be caused by other reasons. Please help! Thanks! This is making me really worried.

    • ANSWER:
      There are lots of common diseases which do not have any cure till date inspite of progress made by science. I am getting success with most of the common diseases with the following.

      Give up water and all other liquids for 24 hours. To avoid dehydration keep indoors. In case of cancer repeat this after every 48 hours.
      On other days drink 1 glass of water 1 hour before each meal. The total water intake on these days should not be more than 3 glasses.

      There are 3 main or rather only common symptoms of cancer -
      1) The cells are not able to produce 38 units of energy that is done in case of normal cells.
      2) The stomach acid is very low.
      3) Tumours or general swelling.

      The reason and logic for the above in short is as under –
      The cells of the human body are at the lowest level which produce energy. To produce energy cells burn glucose in presence of oxygen.
      When there is more water in the cell then the energy producing capacity of the cell is significantly reduced. Reduced energy by the cells cause build up of water outside the cells as well.
      Continued less burning of glucose also causes accumulation of other minerals in the cell. That causes the cells to swell up.
      This does not happen overnight.
      There are various checks in the body to avoid build up of water in the cells. Like whenever there is change in atmosphere temperature the body adjusts the amount of water that cells carry. When this adjustments fails due to some reason the body tries various modes to get rid of the excess water – sinus, cold and cough, adrelin levels, water reduction thru increased urine etc.
      There are certain other complications that happen due to build up of excess water in the cells. One is build up of bacteria and infections in the body.
      These bacteria or infections cause the increase in the body temperature. The increased temperature takes care of the situation.

      What is the reason for cancer. Same. There are tumours in all kind of cancers. The tumours are caused due to cells not dieing. The reason for cells not dieing is cells not producing enough energy and that prolongs their life cycle.
      What is the cure for cancer. The cure for cancer and all other common ailments is same. I found that sinus, cold, cough, IBS, skin blood clots, slip disk, dry skin, IBS, mouth ulcers, renal failure etc can be cured effectively by giving up water and all other liquids for 24 hours to 48 hours. This has been tested on more than 50 persons so far. Thru Yahoo Answers this same been tested on more than 100 people but I do not have conclusive proof of this. The cerainity with which relief is produced in 24 hours gives enough hope for cancer cure in 15 days.

      Now what happens when there is excess water in the cells. That causes build up of excess water outside the cells. That causes pain in the entire body due to constant excess weight on the cells. That also causes the infections to build up. The antibodies causes the increase in body temperature.

      After treatment of cancer patients with chemo etc they are asked to avoid getting in touch people with cold and cough. The chances of such people catching infection is more.

      By giving up water what happens in the body. The blood acids go up by 10% in 24 hours due to reduction in water content by 5% of body weight. That produces enough heat in the body. That causes the infections not to grow, water to come down, there will be more energy production. Increase in body temperature is enough indiction of antibodies becoming more effective. Google on fever and treatment.

      One can try to find a cat or dog with cancer and try the above on them for 15 days and see them go cancer free in 15 days.

  3. QUESTION:
    How can I tell if my dog is sick?
    Well my dog is a chihuahua and shes been laying down all day and barely running around. She’s been using the bathroom like she normally does. Her stomach feels kind of hard and earlier today it wasn’t that big. Is she ok or is she sick?

    • ANSWER:
      Step 1
      Observe if the dog has diarrhea and/or is vomiting. This may be an allergic reaction to food or something the dog swallowed that he wasn’t supposed to, and is often nothing to worry about, however, it could be an indication of something more serious. If the vomiting lasts more than a day or if the diarrhea lasts more than a few days or contains blood, mucous or is black and tarry, a vet needs to check it.

      Step 2
      See if the urine is cloudy, dilute (no color) or contains blood. This is usually the sign of a bladder or kidney infection. Normal urine is a clear yellow. Too frequent or not frequent enough urination might also be signs of a kidney disorder.

      Step 3
      Monitor your dog’s water consumption. Increased water intake may be associated with kidney disease or diabetes. Of course, the more heated up or active your dog is, the more water she will drink. That’s why it’s important to keep close tabs on her drinking habits.

      Step 4
      See if the dog’s nose is warm and dry. This might just mean he is dehydrated and needs more water, however, it can also be a sign of illness. The nose should be cold and wet, but not runny.

      Step 5
      Check inside your dog’s mouth. If the gums are red rather than pink, it’s a sign of inflammation or gum disease. Bad breath and/or drooling might also be symptoms of gum disease or tooth decay. Halitosis could also indicate a metabolic disorder.

      Step 6
      Observe the dog’s activity level. If she remains lethargic or listless; it could be a sign of illness. Since more sleep and less activity may also be attributed to age, it’s important to be aware of how much sleep is normal for your dog. Lethargy, weakness, loss of balance or limping for no apparent reason is a good indication there may be something wrong. Conversely, increased restlessness might also be a sign of a problem.

      Step 7
      Monitor your dog’s eating habits. Look for a decreased/increased appetite or weight loss. Be aware of what a normal weight is for your dog based on age, food intake and activity level. If he has a loss of appetite or increased appetite for more than a 24-hour period, there could be something wrong.

      Step 8
      Be aware if your dog has difficulty breathing or prolonged panting. This may be associated with cancer, a respiratory problem, heart disorder, or possibly heat stroke. Coughing might be a sign of an irritation or something more serious, such as cancer.

      Good Luck!

  4. QUESTION:
    What foods can a dog eat and what is not good to feed them besides seasoned foods.?
    I have a Dashund, I am very aware of the dog food products that we buy at stores. Some of these foods they do not like.I would like to know, what can’t they eat. Besides seasoned foods.

    LeCitha

    • ANSWER:
      I feed mine the raw diet and innova dog food sometimes. they can pretty much eat anything we do, but here is the list of foods they SHOULD NOT eat
      Some foods dogs should not eat and could be deadly

      If your dog has ingested any of these foods, get veterinary help immediately
      Grapes and Raisins: Grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure in dogs. As little as a single serving of raisins can kill a dog.
      Onions: Onions destroy red blood cells and can cause anemia.
      Chocolate: Chocolate can cause seizures, coma and death. Baker’s chocolate is the most dangerous. A dog can consume milk chocolate and appear to be fine because it is not as concentrated, but it is still dangerous.
      Coffee, Coffee grounds, tea and tea bags: Drinks/foods containing caffeine cause many of the same symptoms chocolate causes
      Macadamia Nuts and Walnuts: Macadamia nuts can cause weakness, muscle tremor and paralysis. Limit all other nuts as they are not good for dogs in general, their high phosphorous content is said to possibly lead to bladder stones. Exception to this rule seems to be PEANUT BUTTER. However- always use Salt/Sugar free Peanut butter (sugar encourages cancer growth) free . Also USE ORGANIC peanut butter as regular peanut butter has lots of toxics.
      Animal fat and fried foods: Excessive fat can cause pancreatitis.
      Bones: Cooked bones can splinter and damage a dog’s internal organs. Raw Bone should always be supervised as a piece can always break off and cause problems. Try frozen oxtails or frozen knuckle bones then take the bone away before the dog can swallow a final small piece whole. It’s a good natural way to clean teeth too.
      Tomatoes: Tomatoes can cause tremors and heart arrhythmias. Tomato plants and the most toxic, but tomatoes themselves are also unsafe.
      Avocados: The fruit, pit and plant are all toxic. They can cause difficulty breathing and fluid accumulation in the chest, abdomen and heart.
      Nutmeg: Nutmeg can cause tremors, seizures and death
      Apples, Cherries, Peaches and similar fruit are great for your dog – HOWEVER, the seeds of these fruits contain cyanide, which is poisonous to dogs as well as humans. Unlike humans, dogs do not know to stop eating at the core/pit and easily ingest them. It can also become lodged in the intestines and kill the dog in 24 hours with no warning.
      Raw eggs: Raw eggs can cause salmonella poisoning in dogs. Dogs have a shorter digestive tract than humans and are not as likely to suffer from food poisoning, but it is still possible. BEST to use ORGANIC EGGS if you do raw. Scrambled lightly is best!
      Salt: Excessive salt intake can cause kidney problems.

      Food that most dogs can eat:
      Some “human” foods are good for dogs. Most of these are healthier than the boxed treats you buy in the grocery store. . This is just a small list of examples of foods dogs can eat, not a list of every food they should eat. Dogs won’t necessarily get all the nutrients they need if they eat these foods exclusively, so check with your veterinarian if you are interested in feeding your dog a home cooked diet.
      Any food that causes stomach upsets or digestive problems in your dogs should be avoided. Like people, some dogs cannot tolerate certain foods

      Meats:
      Meats should be boneless and it’s best if the skin is removed. Some people like a RAW diet. Some people rather cook. If you cook meat do not over cook. Keep it ‘rare’ so you don’t kill the enzymes. ESPECIALLY FOR SICK animals. However all Fish and Pork must be well cooked. Also note – totally Raw and cooked diets should never be mixed at the same meal as they digest differently.
      Skinless, boneless chicken breast
      Skinless, boneless turkey breast
      Fish: do not feed TUNA as high mercury content – be careful of small bones.

      Do not feed ‘cold cuts’. They are high in salt and nitrates. Can lead to kidney and digestive problems.

      Vegetables:
      Dogs have shorter digestive tracts than humans and cannot digest most vegetables whole or in large chunks. It’s best to put them through a food processor before giving them to your dog- best veggies for your dog are:
      Carrots (for healthy dogs) (not for cancer dogs though as high in sugar)
      Green Beans
      Lettuce
      Yams

      Grains:
      Grains should not be given in large amounts or make up a large part of a dog’s diet, but these foods are generally safe in small amounts
      Rice
      Bread (not white breads or anything sugar or that converts to sugar) remember the simple rule feed no WHITE colored foods!

      Dairy products
      Use caution with dairy products as they are high in fat and can cause pancreatitis, gas and diarrhea. Usually, nonfat plain yogurt is safe in small amounts as is cottage cheese in small amounts.

      Dangerous & Unhealthy Commercial Dog food treats and foods Rawhides and dog treats- HOOVES and OTHER TREATS: are generally NOT recommended. Most rawhides have chemical that cause cancer .But if you do still want to use them from time to time as a treat it is important that if you do give them that they are of the highest grade and US manufactured. Therefore make sure you buy ones made in the USA and are UNBLEACHED. Do not buy the white ones as they are full of chemicals. Good quality rawhide should only get gooey and gum up when chewed, never chip off. If they chip -the chips can get lodged in the little dip in their esophagus and they can choke on that. As many as 40% of all dogs are allergic to cow skin rawhide chews.

      NEVER give COW HOOVES! They splinter and sharp pieces have killed many dogs. Better alternatives are pig ears, nylabones, and American made bully sticks – however ALWAYS be with your pet when they are eating these as there is always a danger of a piece breaking off and splitting. Nylarbones are not detectable on an x-ray. Also when giving Pigs/Cows ears it’s best to give basted or natural – NOT SMOKED. That puts a carcinogenic coating on it. Unbleach/natural lambs ears are another better choice. Always supervise your pet when chewing these types of things.

      Greenies – are the latest popular treat to become deadly. It is found that they can be slippery and if a piece slides down the throat the dog can die. Also some animals are having problems digesting. For now we recommend you avoid them till further changes are made.. For more on Rawhides click here. Also supervise any chew treats! Also read labels. Many commercial dog treats contain: BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin & propylene glycol– and corn syrups/sugars that cause cancer. Do NOT use treats with ANY OF THESE THINGS!

      SAFE ALTERNATIVES – KONG TOYS – the 3 hole KONG GOODIE SHIPS our personal favorite and other STUFFABLE HARD RUBBER TOYS. Fill them with frozen meat, cheese, and peanut butter for a long lasting SAFE TREAT! Also give your dog frozen carrots to naturally clean teeth. Organic carrots are best, if not scrub and wash well and then freeze.

      Very bad but not ‘dangerous foods and treats include anything with CORN SYRUP** and Sugar. Honey & Molasses is ok in small doses. Read more on our food page or visit the dogfoodproject. Most treats and food sold in supermarkets are what are making our animals die young and get cancer and diabetes. READ the LABLES!

      Corn Syrup** A DOG BECOMES HYPOGLYCEMIC IT IS OKAY CORN SYRUP FOR EMERGENCIES – especially for diabetic dogs.

  5. QUESTION:
    Can Jack Russell Terriers suffer from scottie cramps?
    I recently saw a show on scottish terriers, and it highlighted the condition of scottie cramps, or Cerebellar Abiotrophy. My JRT has shown some of these symptoms from time to time, but we just figured he was epileptic and was having a seizure…Can jack russells suffer from this condition too?

    • ANSWER:
      I found nothing that linke JRTs and Cerebellar Abiotrophy.

      I did find that they can be affected by Cerebellar Ataxia.

      http://www.jrt-research.com/Ataxia.html

      Here are health issues common to the breed…

      In spite of the efforts of responsible Jack Russell breeders to rid the breed of all genetic problems, some disorders still pop up from time to time. This article shows you discusses some of the more common problems found in the breed. Please understand, however, that this is not an all-inclusive list, and it shouldn’t be used as a guide to diagnosis. Always seek your vet’s advice for any symptom or problem you may encounter in your Jack Russell Terrier (JRT).

      Cardiomyopathy: Cardiomyopathy, an abnormality of the heart muscle, can result in lung edema (water in the lung), weakness during exercise, and sudden death. This defect is difficult for the average owner to detect, but if you notice your JRT having trouble after a walk or a run in the park or if you hear her wheezing when she breathes, explore this possibility.

      Cerebellar ataxia: Cerebellar ataxia is a neurological disorder resulting from degeneration of the cerebellum’s cortex. The degeneration can progress steadily and cause a stagger in the dog’s gait. If your terrier appears wobbly on her feet or disoriented from time to time, this disorder could be the cause.

      Cryptochidism: Cryptorchidism is the failure of one or both testicles to descend into the scrotum. The testicle is retained in the abdomen or inguinal area, and it may slide in and out of the scrotum. You can easily detect this problem because your male terrier will appear to have only one testicle in the scrotum or will alternately have two and then one, depending on the day. Although this isn’t a life-threatening problem, it is best to neuter a terrier born with cryptorchidism. A cryptorchid dog may be more prone to cancer.
      Hernias: Hernias occur when a one of the dog’s organs or tissues protrudes through a body wall. The most common of these are the inguinal hernia and the umbilical hernia. These occur when a portion of the intestine falls through the scrotal opening or through the umbilical opening. You will notice a bulge in the dog’s stomach or scrotum that looks like a growth. Take your dog to a veterinarian immediately.
      High toes: The term high toes or short toes applies to a condition in which the toes of the front feet are shorter than normal in a full-grown terrier, giving the appearance of toes that don’t touch the ground. This occurs primarily on the front feet, but it has been seen on hind feet, as well. Although not a debilitating defect, it is considered a breeding fault.

      Hydrocephaly: Hydrocephaly results from an accumulation of fluid in the brain, and it causes the brain to degenerate. The afflicted dog often becomes disoriented or runs into objects while walking. Sadly, dogs with this condition don’t usually live long. For those who survive, treatment often is ineffective. Hydrocephalic dogs often are euthanized.

      Legg-Calve-Perthes disease: Legg-Calve-Perthes (also called Legg-Calve) disease is a septic necrosis, or degeneration, of the head of the femur (the thigh bone). It usually doesn’t manifest itself until a puppy is at least six months old, and it can result in progressive rear-leg lameness. It primarily affects small breeds. If you notice that one of your terrier’s legs looks different than the other three or that one is particularly susceptible to becoming sore, this disease could be causing the problem.

      Lens luxation: Lens luxation is a fairly common inherited disease of the eye in which one or both lenses become partially or completed dislocated from their normal location behind the cornea. In the case of complete dislocation, the lens will be painful and the eye will look red or opaque. Lens luxation, if left untreated, can develop into. The condition usually manifests itself later in life and should be treated as soon as it is diagnosed to prevent blindness. This condition seems to be relatively common among terriers and particularly among Jack Russell Terriers.

      Patent Ductus Arteriosus: Patent Ductus Arteriosus is caused by the failure of the fetal vessel between the aorta and the pulmonary artery to close at birth, causing heart murmurs, weakness, and even death. Special care must be taken of dogs with this condition because they are susceptible to heart failure when exercised even moderately. Surgery for this disorder can be quite effective, especially if performed when the dog is young. This is a problem that can’t be diagnosed unless the dog is examined by a veterinarian.

      Progressive neuronal abiotrophy: Progressive neuronal abiotrophy (or ataxia) causes tremors and a lack of coordination in dogs and is caused by degeneration of the cerebellum’s cortex responsible for coordinating movements. As a result, a dog develops a staggering gait and becomes unable to stand or even eat.

      Von Willebrand’s disease: Von Willebrand’s disease, also referred to as vWD, is a common, inherited bleeding disorder that manifests itself through abnormal platelet function. Symptoms include ongoing bleeding of the gums and nose, bloody urine, prolonged bleeding during estrus or after the birth of a litter, and excessive bleeding after surgery or by a slight nick while trimming your Jack Russell’s nails. It is caused by an insufficient von Willebrand factor, a blood protein that binds platelets to blood vessels.

The Side Effects Of Ovarian Cysts

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How long do side effects of the birth control pill last?
    I started taking mononessa which is generic for ortho-cyclen after my doctor found ovarian cysts that were causing me pain. Since I started taking them a week ago I restarted my period and the bleeding hasn’t stopped as well as unbearable nausea. The whiff of anything good or bad makes me run for the toilet. I’ve heard that these side effects are temporary but was kind of wondering how temporary. I’ve lost weight because i can’t stomach the thought of eating anything.

    • ANSWER:
      I have asked my primary care physician this question for both myself and my teenage daughter, two different types of b/c. She stated that the side effects, caused by your body trying to acclimate to the hormones in the pills, can last up to three months. Generally not that long, more like a month, but it CAN take up to 3 for your body to adjust. Mine only took about 3 weeks, however.

  2. QUESTION:
    What birth control pill is best for breast enlargement?
    I’m looking for a birth control that doesn’t have too many negative side effects. The main reason for going on the pill is because I have ovarian cysts, so my periods are miserably painful, heavy, and long lasting. Therefore my doctor thinks birth control is the best way to go. I figure if i’m going to be taking the pill, I might as well take one that makes my breast larger and helps with my acne. Can someone please tell me the brands that are most effective and will truthfully help with my periods and breast growth?

    • ANSWER:
      birth control is not for breast enlargement… its for birth control or controlling/preventing birth when having sex

      https://www.google.com/search?q=breast+enlargement+pills&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

      ONLY natural breast growth = puberty

  3. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the new birth control YAZ?
    I have just started taking it for ovarian cysts..just wondering if anyone else has used it and experienced any side effects.

    • ANSWER:
      I have a friend that’s on that and I don’t believe she has experienced any side effects from it.

  4. QUESTION:
    What kind of symptoms are caused by birth control?
    Does birth control help with ovarian cysts? My doctor wants me on it to try and shrink my cyst. Are their other side effects? Will I get fat (thats what I keep hearing)? I just want to know if this is going to help me or hurt me… help!

    • ANSWER:
      I’d like to agree but I don’t. Yes, there is a possibility of weight gain. It all depends on the B.C. pill you are taking, and the amount of hormones in your dosage. There are various doses to each type of pill. Follow your doctors advice, and then stay in touch with them and your body. B.C. can be trial and error, but eventually, you will obtain your desired results.

  5. QUESTION:
    What’s the safest form of hormonal birth control?
    I’d like to start taking it because of ovarian cysts, but I worry about things like blood clots and other dangerous side effects. What form of hormonal birth control is safest in that regard?

    • ANSWER:
      All of them can cause these side effects. Use condoms

Size Of Ovarian Cyst And Cancer

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Whats the difference between an ovarian cyst and ovarian cancer?
    My sister has an ‘ovarian cyst’ 15 cm i n width….. The average cyst rarely exceeds 5 cm…… can a cyst turn into cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      Ovarian cyst is:

      An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac in the ovary. Many cysts are completely normal. These are called functional cysts. They occur as a result of ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). Functional cysts normally shrink over time, usually in about 1 to 3 months. If you have a functional cyst, your doctor may want to check you again in 1 to 3 months to make sure the cyst has gotten smaller. In certain cases, your doctor may want you to take birth control pills so you won’t ovulate. If you don’t ovulate, you won’t form cysts.

      If you are menopausal and are not having periods, you shouldn’t form functional cysts. If you do have a cyst, your doctor will probably want you to have a sonogram so he or she can look at the cyst. What your doctor decides to do after that depends on your age, the way the cyst looks on the sonogram and if you’re having symptoms such as pain, bloating, feeling full after eating just a little, and constipation.

      Ovarian Cancer:

      Recognizing ovarian cancer symptoms

      Ovarian cancer often shows no obvious signs or symptoms until late in its development. Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:

      General abdominal discomfort and/or pain (gas, indigestion, pressure, swelling, bloating, cramps)

      Nausea, diarrhea, constipation, or frequent urination

      Loss of appetite

      Feeling of fullness even after a light meal

      Weight gain or loss with no known reason

      Abnormal bleeding from the vagina

      These symptoms may be caused by ovarian cancer or by other, less serious conditions. It is important to check with a doctor about any of these symptoms.

      To help find the cause of symptoms, a doctor evaluates a woman’s medical history. The doctor also performs a physical exam and orders diagnostic tests. Some exams and tests that may be useful are described below:

      Pelvic exam includes feeling the uterus, vagina, ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder, and rectum to find any abnormality in their shape or size. (A Pap test, a good test for cancer of the cervix, is often done along with the pelvic exam, but it is not a reliable way to find or diagnose ovarian cancer.)

      Ultrasound refers to the use of high-frequency sound waves. These waves, which cannot be heard by humans, are aimed at the ovaries. The pattern of the echoes they produce creates a picture called a sonogram.

      CA-125 assay is a blood test used to measure the level of CA-125, a tumor marker that is often found in higher-than-normal amounts in the blood of women with ovarian cancer.

      Lower GI series, or barium enema, is a series of x-rays of the colon and rectum. The pictures are taken after the patient is given an enema with a white, chalky solution containing barium. The barium outlines the colon and rectum on the x-ray, making tumors or other abnormal areas easier to see.

      CT (or CAT) scan is a series of detailed pictures of areas inside the body created by a computer linked to an x-ray machine.

      Biopsy is the removal of tissue for examination under a microscope. A pathologist studies the tissue to make a diagnosis. To obtain the tissue, the surgeon performs a laparotomy (an operation to open the abdomen). If cancer is suspected, the surgeon performs an oophorectomy (removal of the entire ovary). This is important because, if cancer is present, removing just a sample of tissue by cutting through the outer layer of the ovary could allow cancer cells to escape and cause the disease to spread.

      If the diagnosis is ovarian cancer, the doctor will want to learn the stage (or extent) of disease. Staging is a careful attempt to find out whether the cancer has spread and, if so, to what parts of the body. Staging may involve surgery, x-rays and other imaging procedures, and lab tests. Knowing the stage of the disease helps the doctor plan treatment.

  2. QUESTION:
    what is the diff btw the pain in the colon and ovarian cyst? Ive had cancer in the past and col pain same?
    I had non-hodgkins lymphoma in my colon and it spread to my liver and it was the agressive kind and now I’m in remission for three yrs. I also have an ovarian cyst which is the size of a golf ball or more from my x-ray about a year ago and I can feel it. My oncologist sent me to the obgyn but I’ve lost my insurance, so for almost a year now, I haven’t been seen. I’m scared but with no insurance unless you go to the hospital with screaming pain they won’t see you.
    I’m worried its the non-hodgkins coming back b/c I’ve had other symptoms as well. But, the cyst is so large, it could make sense that it is causing the pain. But they are located in the same place so I dont know which one it is.

    • ANSWER:
      umm…

  3. QUESTION:
    what is the difference btw ovarian cancer and ovarian cyst?
    I have a large ovarian cyst but I’ve been experiencing a lot of gas, swelling and sorness of my stomach and back. I am having indigestion and shortness of breath. Could this be just the cyst?

    • ANSWER:
      Ovarian cyst may be benign or malignant , it usually is benign but there is clinical and para-clinical parameters indicating malignancy probability ; such as ascites , vaginal/rectal bleeding , bowel obstruction , fixation of the mass to the surrounding organs in physical examinations and also multiseptation or solid component in ultrasonography assay and also some tumor markers may be help full in this regard . . . But when there is such strong indicators such as I say later , there is surgical indications for open or laparoscopic sampling for pathology confirmation . Regarding to your history I can not say that your cyst is certainly a malignant one , yes there is large size predilection and also dominant gastrointestinal symptoms in the malignant group but be hopeful , I’m sure yours is a benign one! ( but you must follow it as soon as you can ) .

  4. QUESTION:
    How to intentionally pop an ovarian cyst?
    Is there a way to actually pop an ovarian cyst?
    My doctor already surgically removed one that grew to the size of a golf ball (had to take almost the whole ovary with it due to damage) and they found another cyst on the remaining ovary recently.
    They refuse to give me any sort of treatment, even if it grows to a dangerous size, they said they don’t want to do anything about it because they think I gave it to myself. Plus they think I’m too young (almost 22) to have these kinds of issues and that’s another reason why they are refusing any treatment.

    To answer any questions; my body doesn’t react to birth control, which I know sounds odd or even fake, but it doesn’t effect me. I’ve also researched it and I don’t think I want to risk myself for cancer.

    How can I pop it since I don’t seem to have the legal right to get it removed no matter what kinds of problems it can bring me? Would giving myself PID help or a lot of physical exercise do anything to make it rupture? Popping it myself is the only way I can get medical treatment for this thing and it’s already past the size of a grape.
    My doctors encouraged it but didn’t tell me how I could force it.

    • ANSWER:

  5. QUESTION:
    Complex Ovarian Cysts- are there alternatives to surgical removal?
    I’ve been doing some reading on ovarian cysts, and the answer that keeps coming up for complex cysts is surgical removal, most often by laparoscopy. This is done due to concerns about ovarian cancer. But aren’t there other options available? And how do they know that a cyst should be removed, particularly if it is multi-compartmental?

    • ANSWER:
      I have had a number of complex ovarian cysts that have caused me a lot of pain, once with a 7.7cm cyst they decided to perform surgery (laparoscopy) to remove the cyst but before they got that far my cyst ruptured and I had emergency surgery (laparoscopy).

      In April this year I had another complex ovarian cyst that was 4.6cm but my doctor and gyno recommended going on the birth control pill to see whether it would resolve on it’s own and if it didn’t that they would do another laparoscopy to remove it. The last scan I had said that the cyst had kept growing and was 5.1cm, but a week later it once again ruptured, although I didn’t need emergency surgery again.

      I guess it depends on the type of cyst, the size and whether or not it causes pain. Most of the cysts I have had has caused me intense pain, however some of them were only about 3.5cm (which my doctor says is not big enough to really operate for) they usually wait a cycle or two to see if they go away on their own as they most often usually do (go away on their own).

      I hope this helped answer your question. If you have any further questions regarding ovarian cysts, please feel free to email me anytime (the link to my email is in my profile).

      Good luck :)

  3. QUESTION:
    What are the main symptoms of PCOS?

    • ANSWER:
      PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is a syndrome, not a disease. That means that someone with PCOS may not have all of the symptoms listed.

      Symptoms include:
      Long cycles (periods come more than 35 days apart)
      Irregular periods (length of time between periods varies)
      Ovarian cysts
      Insulin resistance (pre-diabetes, characterized by high fasting levels of insulin)
      Overweight or obesity
      Hirsutism (abnormal, dark, male-pattern body hair growth)
      Anovulation (not ovulating)
      Amenorrhea (absence of periods)
      Infertility (reversible with treatment)
      High LH
      LH:FSH ratio is greater than 2
      High testosterone

      There are probably some that I missed, but those are the main ones. I have PCOS myself, and thanks to a miracle drug called Glucophage (metformin), I’m ovulating again! You may also be helped by Clomid, Femara, or simply diet and exercise.

      http://www.soulcysters.com is an online support group for women with PCOS, and it has lots of informative articles too.

      Good luck!

  4. QUESTION:
    Im 20 Pregnant With My First Baby, HELP ME MOMMIES! =)?
    I am 4 wks pregnant, I am overweight, right when I started dieting I found out I got a miracle in me, and I am keeping it. I know I have to eat healthier, so can any mommies point me in the direction as to WHAT I can eat? I just had an ovarian cyst about the same time I must have concieved, and I am worried it will effect the baby, I can’t sleep I wake up aroung 3-5 AM! What should I expect as the symptoms keep coming?

    • ANSWER:
      I have PCOS too and I actually gained weight due to this but since I got pregnant I started eating Healthy. foods which are good for you and Baby and which will not make you gain weight : Milk, Cottage Cheese, Fat Free Sugar Free yogurt, Cereals ( preferably with Good amount Of Fibre as Pregnant women tend to get COnstipated) eat as much Greens as possible as they contain Foliac acid, eat plenty of Vegetables and Fruits, Drink loads of Water and also Fruit Juices but which are squeezed by yourself as they contain no extra crap and sugar. Cut down on salt being overweight can cause problems with high pressure later on in pregnancy that’s why is good to cut down on sugar and salt, eat Chicken and Beef, Fish is good too make sure it is low in Mercury, reduce bread ( I eat it once inn a week) and starch, frizzy drinks and caffeine not good, you have loads of healthy options which are really good for you an Baby so you can work out some good menu from all this. But dont forget you are pregnant and occasionally you can spoil yourself by giving in to Cravings but not too much :) as being overweight will be hard later in pregnancy and giving birth. Eat often and small meals, keep some apple and carrot sticks, some grapes in a fridge when you want some snacks, Better always eat seasonal fruit and Vegetable as they are more organic.

      Also if you were not active before pregnancy dont start exercises now ( meaning dont overdoo anything) but it is really good if you start walking 30 minutes 1 hour a day and will be amazing if you can go swimming few time a week I do all this and trust me I feel great and swimming is good for you and Baby, it takes away all the pressure form your Back, helps your feet not to swell later on and generally it is healthy.
      I am 29 weeks tomorrow and only gained 7KG with which my Doctor is Happy anything else bothers you still discuss with your Doctor

      P.S. avoid unpasturized Cheese and Raw meat, Sushi

      Good Luck

  5. QUESTION:
    CONSTANT INFECTIONS, Throat, lung, sinus, uterus Please, help if you know anything?
    I’m in tears. I am desperate for an answer because I know normal people don’t go through what I do. I’m 32. I’ve been suffering from unusual and cruel intense infections for at least a decade and a half. It goes like this; Everyone gets a cold. I get bronchitis then pneumonia if I don’t go on STRONG sometimes INTRAVENOUS antibiotics within often days of acquiring illness that everyone else recovers from. Repeat scenareo with a dozen extremely severe strep throat bouts that get me to 104.5 fever within 2 days, or less, and now sinus infections. I have had my tonsils removed, then it moved to my sinuses. I have also near died 3x by near bleeding to death after two miscarriages and then the birth of my only son- a miracle baby that had complications. (so did I.) I have been tested several times, recently and repeatedly through the years for mono, HIV/AIDS, white blood cell count, all that. I eat decent. I am reasonably active. When all my friends were experiencing young life and going to college I spent it battling severe infections. I have been battling a horrible sinus infection since June (6 months) recently and I’m also bleeding from the uterus now for 2 months. I have been on 5? rounds of antibiotics, one for 3 weeks. It just comes back. Now I have the sinus infection and a bronchial infection coming on. I know because I’ve been through it 100 times. I’ve now missed over a week of work and had an on and off fever for 6 weeks. Please, help. Dr’s are puzzled. I’m adopted so I don’t know my family history. I take a fantastic multivitamin- a prenatal. I take vitamin c. I am not allergic to anything, I’ve been tested. I’ve also had several “undiagnosed” weird issues like very strange ovarian cysts that resolved themselves, and both my hips I cannot lie on at night as my legs fall asleep- even when I’m not heavy. The latter is a typical condition of an elderly male, and is super rare on both sides. I’ve also had double carpal tunnel surgery. Please help, do you know anyone like this? Many drs, especially my recent gyno suspects a systematic issue. I have seen an infectious disease dr with no results recently. My throat and glands are constantly swollen as I’m always feeling sick and fighting something. When I travel, I almost always end up in the hospital with a horrible infection of the lungs, throat or sinus within a couple days, making me trapped in my home. Please… help
    the hospital dosen’t take me seriously unless I’m spiking a horrible fever. The issue is that it keeps coming back, all of it, over and over and over, severe- for years. I have seen my primary 2x in the last week.

    • ANSWER:
      I would really recommend checking out Celiac Disease. Celiac Disease is an auto-immune disease where the body attacks itself, specifically the villi in the intestines. So your body is constantly suffering from malnutrition and inflammation. One oddity with this disease is while many people have problems that docs believe are due to vitamin deficiencies, they can still test within normal ranges for many of the vitamins typically tested for.

      - miscarriages and problems during pregnancy are common, because as the baby grows, the body’s lack of nutrients cause some serious problems.
      - issues with anything involving the immune system are common – frequent illness is very common, as are complications with any illness you come down with, and slow recovery. The immune system doesn’t have the nutritional resources to work properly.
      - soft tissue injuries or repetitive strain injuries like carpal tunnel are common, because the body is always a bit inflamed AND can’t get enough nutrients to maintain healthy soft tissues.
      - circulation and neurological issues like numbness, tingling, legs and arms falling asleep too easily are common.

      There’s a horde more symptoms. I have a link below for more.

      It used to be thought that this disease was extremely rare and the only symptoms for this were stomach problems and being underweight. That has now been shown to be completely incorrect. It seems to be affecting 1 in 133. The symptoms can affect any bodily system that needs nutrients and many sufferers are actually overweight.

      But this correct information has literally only been in the medical texts at medical schools for less than 10 years. So many doctors coming out of med school earlier than that have no idea that your symptoms could be related to this disease. They would be unlikely to test for it.

      A blood panel is the main test for this, but there are recent blood tests that are better, with fewer false negatives, that sometimes have to be asked for specifically. You’ll likely have to tell your doc which tests you want, if this is a concern.

      If a doctor says you could not possibly have this disease? That’s a sign they are completely ignorant. There is no way to tell if someone has this disease or not without testing, as there are many cases with few to no symptoms at all, so there is no way that a doctor can tell whether you have it or not without a test. Insist on a test.

      Okay, now for some good news.

      If it Is this disease, as diseases go, you luck out, big time. Because it is the only auto-immune disease in the world that doctors figured out WHAT makes the body attack itself: ingesting gluten (a protein in wheat, rye, and barley). When gluten comes into contact with the intestines, the body attacks those sections of the intestines. If one stops ingesting gluten (and anything that has been gluten contaminated. You’ll want to check that out on Celiac sites), then the body stops attacking itself. The intestines heal. The body starts absorbing nutrients, and everything starts healing that can heal.

      There are no drugs for this disease, not available, and not needed. Just a diet change, and that’s it.

      Now, if the celiac test is negative? I’d take a look at gluten intolerance. A recent study proved that gluten intolerance exists in a form that is not celiac disease, and seems to cause nearly as many problems for the people who suffer from it. It hasn’t been studied yet at all, so currently, there is no test for it, just doing the gluten free diet and seeing how symptoms react.

      If neither of those pan out, other auto-immune diseases are frequently the cause of systemic issues like this. Crohn’s disease is another gut one that causes inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, and such.

      Wishing you the best of luck, and don’t give up trying to find the answer! Truly, much, much sympathy from over here, from someone who has been there.

Mass On Ovary Mri

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Why so many test to see a Mass in my right ovary?
    My OBGYN did a vaginal ultrasound saw a mass on my right ovary, told me he need to send it to a radiologist to get a better description, the radiologist send it back with the same description as my doctor- the only thing that it is the size of an olive- now I have to get an MRI… Why couldnt he tell if it was just a cycst with the ultrasound… it scars me that he I have to get tested so many times… Why is that?

    • ANSWER:
      Ultrasounds show sizes and possibly what the mass is but not to the point of being conclusive. To be concise and thorough it could be many things. An MRI can give a better picture inside and out of the mass.

      Your OBGYN is doing a scientific medical investigation to make sure conclusively what it is. You would not want your doctor to miss ovarian cancer would you? It takes one step after another to make a complete diagnosis.

      False Diagnosis could lead to the doctor being sued for malpractice. A doctor must be thorough. I’m working on my PhD in Psychology and I must be thorough also. One small thing could be something totally different than what is seen at first. Be safe rather than sorry.

  2. QUESTION:
    Had ultrasound and what was on my ovary measured 5cm?
    Ok i went for an ultrasound and during the ultrasound she said that my right ovary was measuring 5cm. Then yesterday i got the results of my ultrasound back and it said that i have a large mass on my right ovary. It also said that it is recovering from hemorrhaging. They said that they couldn’t determine if it was a cyst. So now I have to go for a MRI with and with out contrast. So what do you think is going on?

    • ANSWER:
      I had an ultrasound done early in my pregnancy that showed one ovary was considerably larger than the other. When I talked to the doctor about it later she told me that the ovary that you ovulated from last (the one with the egg that is now your growing baby) grows a cyst on it. That cyst actually produces hormones that help maintain your pregnancy.

      I’m sorry I can’t remember exactly how big mine was, but that could be what it is. Try not to worry.

  3. QUESTION:
    What should I do if I think I might have an ovarian cyst?
    I have a really sharp pain in my lower left abdominal area, it started during sex and it’s been two days now, and it’s still pretty intense. I’ve just been taking pain killers so I can deal with it, I’m hoping it will pass because I don’t have insurance. From eveything I’ve read and talking to people, I’m thinking it might be an ovarian cyst, has anyone had this? Can it just go away?
    I went to the ER, they ruled out anything critical, including ovarian cysts. I still have the pretty intese pain, they gave me pain killers and told me to go see my doctor, which I don’t have becuase I don’t have insurance!

    • ANSWER:
      When I was 20, I had a fairly large ovarian cyst. I figured “no big deal. I’ll just get it removed”. Well I had the surgery only they didn’t remove the cyst. They sewed it open so that it wouldn’t occur again. Then, the summer I turned 23, I got really really sick. It lasted off and on for about 6 months or more. People were asking me if I was pregnant and everything. Finally I got so sick that I could barely walk. I thought maybe it was a UTI, as dumb as that sounds. But because I get them frequently, it wouldn’t be unheard of. So, my boyfriend at the time took me to the ER and they admitted me for testing. About a week after that, I had an MRI and they told me I had an extremely large mass in my abdomen. They transferred me to a larger hospital and in two days, we found out through surgery, that since I had let the pain go on for so long, that 2 abnormally huge cysts had grown on my ovary and had also grown into my intestinal wall. The surgeon had to remove the cysts as well as one of my ovaries. The kicker of the whole long story is this: two years before my surgery, I had to go in for an MRI and the doctor told me that I had a very tiny cyst on my ovary and that I wasn’t to worry because most women do develop cysts during their menstrual cycle that will or may burst either during or after their period.
      Ok, I know I have been long winded and I apologize. But if you are that concerned about your pain being an ovarian cyst, then you should really at least try to go to planned parenthood to get it checked out. Most of the time, planned parenthood either accepts donations for their services or they have a sliding scale fee system that goes by your income. There may be someone that they could refer you to that could find out for sure what you are experiencing and the treatment for it.

  4. QUESTION:
    I have an enlarged lymph node in my right groin area. In addition to this I have a cyst on my left ovary and?
    I have recently had an ultra sound which identified the cyst but the radiographer was unable to view my right ovary due to a mass. My GP seems quite apathetic towards my concerns over the enlarged node but has referred me to Gyn for a trans vag scan to monitor the cyst.

    Does anyone have any similar symptoms?

    • ANSWER:
      My daughter has been suffering from lower back pain, groin pain and also pain on the right side of pelvis. At first we thought it was referred pain from the annullar tear she has on her lumbar spine. But after another MRI done thru the pelvis they found a complex cystic structure and referred her to a gynecologist and for an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed that she has a bloody cyst almost 5cm x 4.5cm in diameter. Now we are waiting to see the gino/oncologist, he will do a trans vag scan next thursday and see if this is the cause of her chronic groin pain/pelvis!… Hopefully he will remove it!…The doctors she has seen so far think that it may be the cause of her constant pain, we’ll see!
      I was worried that it would be something bad but thank GOD they all have said that is not something to worry about and most cysts are usually benign!

      Make sure you get someone to listen to you!…If not go for second or third opinion!
      Best of luck to you and hopefully everything will be okay with you:-)

  5. QUESTION:
    What does the MRI actually check?
    My doctor had me have an MRI to rule out a dermoid, recently. The MRI showed no dermoid or mass. Now, my doctor, a month ago, saw a fibroid on my endometrium, during a pelvic sonogram.
    Would the MRI have picked it up if it was still there? Or does the MRI just look on the ovaries for a dermoid and that’s it, as requested.

Ovarian Cystectomy Complications

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    can poly cystic ovarian disease be completely cured without any side effects.?
    i have already tried certain hormonal pills under medical supervision but the cysts still exists …should i switch over to yunani or ayurvedic types of medication

    • ANSWER:
      if u speak of cure ,there is only one oopherectomy remove the ovaries,otherwise the medical and surgical procedures like cystectomy deal only with the complications ,drugs deal with hormonal issues ,anti-androgens ,etc ,once u become menopause its over and done

  2. QUESTION:
    Is there a condition that impairs recovery after surgery/ general anesthetia?
    I had a simple ovarian cystectomy during a laparascopic procedure over 6 weeks ago. I was told normal recovery was 1 to 2 weeks, and that I could go back to work after 2 weeks. However I have yet to recover, I am just as tired and weak as I was 1 week after surgery, I am unable to do normal simple chores. Anytime I have enough energy to go grocery shopping or see friends, I need a few days in bed to recover! Yet there were no complications during the surgery, everything went well, there is no reason for my fatigue.

    I do currently have iron deficiency and I’m fighting post-infectious IBS, and I’ve always been more sensitive to medications, especially those that cause drowsiness, and I tend to recover more slowly from colds than most people. These are all minor, could this be the reason for my slow recovery??? This delay sounds exagerated!

    Could there be another cause to this prolonged recovery period?
    My red blood cells are slightly below normal, but my hemoglobin is normal and in fact my MCH is high. So I’m iron deficent but not anemic… i think

    • ANSWER:
      There are many. You said you are iron deficient are you anemic?

    Could there be another cause to this prolonged recovery period?
    my doctor just said “everyone heals differently” and extanded my medical leave. I kow everyone heals differently but… this is getting ridiculous!

    • ANSWER:
      Iron deficiency would definitely prevent quick healing (hope you’re taking iron) , post infectious IBS will make you feel like crap and it sounds like your immune system is not working optimally. NONE OF THIS IS MINOR in a healthy woman. So I hope you are in close touch with your MD as you shouldn’t perceive these issues as normal. Feel better.

  4. QUESTION:
    Can a skilled gynecologist answer this, please? Need professional opinion!!?
    I’m about 10 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. With my 1st pregnancy, I had a planned C-Section due to my gyn’s worries of a big baby. Before my son was born, I had a ultrasound done to see the size of him. It showed that he was going to weigh 10 pounds 2 weeks before I was due. My gyn recommended the C-Section 2 weeks early because of his size and my blood pressure was going up too.

    Now, I’m pregnant with my second child. My gyn did an ultrasound 2 weeks ago, to see exactly how far along I was. (He’s afraid of another big baby.) During the ultrsound, they also checked my ovaries. He said on my right ovary there were 3 cysts. Can this effect my pregnancy? If the cysts are still there when I have this 2nd C-Section (he recommends it due to my problems with the 1st pregnancy)…what are the chances he’ll go ahead and remove my ovary during the surgery??
    Hey, Melfred….WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH WANTING A SECOND OPINION!!!

    • ANSWER:
      i am not a gynecologist but i am 5 months pregnant and i have cysts on my right ovaries and they always hurt i was worried so i asked my doctor she did an ultrasound she said yeah there are cysts but they will not affect the pregnancy at all and if there are cysts during your c-sec and have grown over 2.5 diameter the following procedures are taken
      Ovarian cystectomy – removal of cyst

      Partial oophorectomy – removal of the cyst and a portion of the ovary

      Salpingo-oophorectomy – removal of the cyst, ovary and fallopian tube. This procedure is done dependent upon the size of the cyst and complications encountered such as bleeding, rupturing and twisting of the cyst.

      Total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy – removal of the cyst, both ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus. This procedure is rarely used unless the cyst is cancerous

      for me my cysts dissolved on their own and it was okay so see what your doctor says and what type of cyst you have

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What to expect when getting an ultrasound for ovarian cysts?
    Every month, I get the worst cramps ever. They hurt so bad that I can’t do anything expect for lay down. Nothing has helped either. My mom took me to the doctor and she put me on birth control. But, I have to go back and have an ultrasound down to check for ovarian cysts. What can I expect? Will the make my mom leave the room? Will I have do have something in my vagina? Please help :P
    Thanks so much(:
    I’m 15 almost 16.

    • ANSWER:
      Don’t panic. An ultrasound is all external. I have had them done, for similar reasons. I can walk you through the procedure step by step from my own experience.

      With regards to your mother, if you need the support you can ask that your mother stay with you, I’m sure the technician will have absolutely no problem with that. If you’d prefer you can also ask that she leave the room.

      When you arrive they will probably ask that you to change into a gown and lay down on the examining table. The technician will put lubricant on your pelvis, above your pubic area. Next they will use the ultrasound to scan your ovaries. Think of the device like a barcode scanner. There might be a bit of pressure so they can get a clear look at your ovaries, but certainly not anything painful.

      For me, the most uncomfortable part of the procedure was was the feeling of the lubricating jelly. If you do experience any pain, just inform the technician. Over all, don’t be worried, they won’t be looking at your vagina at all.

      Also make sure you drink plenty of water before your appointment and don’t urinate, this helps with a more clear picture as well. That information should be provided to you by the office where you are having the exam done.

  2. QUESTION:
    Whats the difference between an ovarian cyst and ovarian cancer?
    My sister has an ‘ovarian cyst’ 15 cm i n width….. The average cyst rarely exceeds 5 cm…… can a cyst turn into cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      Ovarian cyst is:

      An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac in the ovary. Many cysts are completely normal. These are called functional cysts. They occur as a result of ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). Functional cysts normally shrink over time, usually in about 1 to 3 months. If you have a functional cyst, your doctor may want to check you again in 1 to 3 months to make sure the cyst has gotten smaller. In certain cases, your doctor may want you to take birth control pills so you won’t ovulate. If you don’t ovulate, you won’t form cysts.

      If you are menopausal and are not having periods, you shouldn’t form functional cysts. If you do have a cyst, your doctor will probably want you to have a sonogram so he or she can look at the cyst. What your doctor decides to do after that depends on your age, the way the cyst looks on the sonogram and if you’re having symptoms such as pain, bloating, feeling full after eating just a little, and constipation.

      Ovarian Cancer:

      Recognizing ovarian cancer symptoms

      Ovarian cancer often shows no obvious signs or symptoms until late in its development. Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:

      General abdominal discomfort and/or pain (gas, indigestion, pressure, swelling, bloating, cramps)

      Nausea, diarrhea, constipation, or frequent urination

      Loss of appetite

      Feeling of fullness even after a light meal

      Weight gain or loss with no known reason

      Abnormal bleeding from the vagina

      These symptoms may be caused by ovarian cancer or by other, less serious conditions. It is important to check with a doctor about any of these symptoms.

      To help find the cause of symptoms, a doctor evaluates a woman’s medical history. The doctor also performs a physical exam and orders diagnostic tests. Some exams and tests that may be useful are described below:

      Pelvic exam includes feeling the uterus, vagina, ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder, and rectum to find any abnormality in their shape or size. (A Pap test, a good test for cancer of the cervix, is often done along with the pelvic exam, but it is not a reliable way to find or diagnose ovarian cancer.)

      Ultrasound refers to the use of high-frequency sound waves. These waves, which cannot be heard by humans, are aimed at the ovaries. The pattern of the echoes they produce creates a picture called a sonogram.

      CA-125 assay is a blood test used to measure the level of CA-125, a tumor marker that is often found in higher-than-normal amounts in the blood of women with ovarian cancer.

      Lower GI series, or barium enema, is a series of x-rays of the colon and rectum. The pictures are taken after the patient is given an enema with a white, chalky solution containing barium. The barium outlines the colon and rectum on the x-ray, making tumors or other abnormal areas easier to see.

      CT (or CAT) scan is a series of detailed pictures of areas inside the body created by a computer linked to an x-ray machine.

      Biopsy is the removal of tissue for examination under a microscope. A pathologist studies the tissue to make a diagnosis. To obtain the tissue, the surgeon performs a laparotomy (an operation to open the abdomen). If cancer is suspected, the surgeon performs an oophorectomy (removal of the entire ovary). This is important because, if cancer is present, removing just a sample of tissue by cutting through the outer layer of the ovary could allow cancer cells to escape and cause the disease to spread.

      If the diagnosis is ovarian cancer, the doctor will want to learn the stage (or extent) of disease. Staging is a careful attempt to find out whether the cancer has spread and, if so, to what parts of the body. Staging may involve surgery, x-rays and other imaging procedures, and lab tests. Knowing the stage of the disease helps the doctor plan treatment.

  3. QUESTION:
    Does Fibrocystic Breat Disease and ovarian cysts have any kind of relation to each other?
    I have had FBD since my early teens, and now I am 18 and I have had two ovarian cysts(that I know of within the last 3 months) rupture. Is there any kind of relation between these two conditions? and could this effect my fertility?

    • ANSWER:
      No not in relations…Bra Cancer is much different and it is a cancer as far as I know cancer is malignant and damage is done on normal cells as Cancer feeds off the body to be a over growth of cells and the cells are accepted by the body not as foe but as friend yet the cancer feeds until is uses up the good of the body and rots…
      So far in my recent diagnosis of fibroids…It is not cancerous and at any time fibrois appear..due to being obese as a feature in Black Women more…durring 40′s and women who have not had children and are close to menopausal stages the fibroids will dry up…The body is making one last big bang…stage is set to give yourself a chance or one last call before closing time the fibroids can be treated with drugs or removed by lazer and healing time is 2 to 3 days on a treatment…Total removal of the lining by historectomy will remove the area only responsible for the growth and rinder you unable to have children…even the treatment says no children stage…It can be avoided the idea is to prolong your female hormones nature given and not rush into menopause
      A Pause for the Men…I understand that The Big S is still on and Poppin…Either Way…You are quite young for this so look to speed up having your children …Tell the doctor children are a option in your future…You can still have a baby soon…Cover the basis legal…Marrage if the Guy agrees is a better option than child support or welfare or with your parents help….for you it is possible..option.
      Take care to be here for a long time unless you bleed heavy and unless you are in pain You can live with fibroids for a long time and not have a problem and they grow slow so you have plenty of time to see how you are going to proceed
      Not many doctors will tell you anything you have to be a big vigulanty on the web and look up sources.
      Web MD and Fibroids section of Yahoo was a big brace for me.
      Details even the National NDCC will send you a book for free
      booklet…
      I would read about MS and Fibroids and as I turn 40..I go for a checkup and the doctor finds things and I thought I was the picture of health to me … Overly healthy in a way the fibroids do not hurt me until they started ultrasounding and picking with them in test…I am looking at option of hystorectomy..I want this as a last resort…Kind of thanking God I have options
      Lazar…Emoblization…Therapy Support Groups…I am not going to give up and give in without a fight…While I still have God and a great fight in me to try to live…
      I heard on the radio One woman said it is common and she can feel hers being fed if she drinked sweet tea or fried chicken…I too feel to cut of the source of it being fed and it will need to die or fall out or burn out or cut out …Idea it is genetics and it will come back and case out other areas…
      I have a big choice to make even with the doctors I feel I got to answer to God for myself…I lay on MRI tables thinking of the people before me and after me….The times in church when they said to prepare for times like these in your health with your faith …I am not going to give up on God and I wonder about what must I face to be saved…What must I give up to be saved…A man on the Radio said You do not know what you must give up to be saved in this race for life.. Or how what you are going to face will be a great help to others going through on the journey…So I made a decision to follow Christ example…and I figure he gave up his life ….for us and many of us can not face what he faced for us. He ask for so little to live right and some of us can not even face living right and following the so called rules and staying off Jerry and Maurry…It seems like nothing happens to them…They just mess up a poor innocent baby…and have to work harder to make a great life come for the child…

  4. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for ovarian cysts to go away?
    I’ve been told that I have a cyst on my right ovary for 5 months now and every now and then I get pains and then it goes away. I had a CT scan on my pelvis and abdomen and it showed my right ovary to be slightly larger than my left. My doctor said that nothing on the picture made them worry so it was nothing to be afraid of.

    • ANSWER:
      Some can go away in a cycle, others several months, some may even need to be surgically removed if they go too large or press on other organs.

  5. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know someone who got negative effects from taking birth control & should I go on it?
    I’m seriously considering going on the pill because I have ovarian cysts so I’m in pain when I ovulate and especially when I’m on my period and I’m sexually active and not trying to conceive. I’ve heard there are a lot of negative side effects like weight gain or even cancer. I would someday like to have children, just not yet, and cancer is very prominent in my family. Is it worth it or am I just stressing too much?

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve been on birth control for over 10 years to help with ovarian cysts and out of control, painful periods. In all that time, I’ve put on maybe 5 pounds. I can’t picture my life without all the benefits the pill gives me–super light periods, no cramps, no mood swings, the nice feeling of knowing exactly when my period will start. I plan to start my family in the next year and I’m dreading getting off the pill. All of my friends were on the pill and none of them have had problems getting pregnant. In your case, going on the pill could actually safeguard your fertility. I lost an ovary to a cyst. The longer you let cysts happen, the more chance you’re going to damage your ovaries.

      Go talk to a doctor and explain all your concerns and get some expert medical advice. The risk for cancer is tiny. It was much higher years ago when birth control had much higher doses of hormones in them.

Ovarian Cyst Rupture Discharge Symptoms

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are the symptoms of a ruptured ovarian cyst?
    For the past three days, I have been having a dark brown almost black discharge. My period isn’t supposed to start for another week. Is this a symptom of a ruptured ovarian cyst? If not, what is it? I missed my birth control the 1 day before my most fertile day which was the 19th of this month, and my boyfriend and I did have sex on that day. So what is it?
    Also, 4 years ago I had ovarian cysts, I don’t know if I have them again.

    • ANSWER:
      Short and simple, go to the ER , stop reading short novels for answers and have your only body checked out before you die in bed from bleeding out in your sleep.

  2. QUESTION:
    Is this a symptom of an ovarian cyst?
    I had a Huge ovarian cyst rupture last month. Holy cow, was that intense! I’m feeling all the pain again right now. Instead of having a period (which I was due a few days ago), I had clear discharge. I wonder if I should get it checked out. I’ve never had that symptom before. Also, last month and right now I have this severe headache that’s keeping me from being able to do just about anything. The pain’s into my neck and everything. Why would an ovarian cyst cause a headache?

    • ANSWER:
      I had a huge ovarian cyst a couple of months ago as well. The pain is intense- you’re right. :(

      Right before mine I had discharge, too but it may be for different reasons- everyone is different.
      Headaches are pretty much common whenever you have stress, so maybe you are stressed because you are thinking you might be having another cyst.
      Either that, or you could just be having another one. :/
      I didn’t have any headaches, though.

      Hope you end up okay,
      -me(:

      Ovarian Cysts

      Doctor’s PCOS Healthy Diet eBook
      ——————————————————————————–

      An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac usually found on the surface of an ovary. There are many types of ovarian cysts, each with a different underlying cause. Many women will have them at some point during their childbearing years. Most are completely without symptoms. However, some types can cause serious health problems.

      You have two walnut-sized ovaries. These are located on either side of the uterus, nestled under the fringed ends of the fallopian or uterine tubes. These tubes create a pathway for a released egg to reach the center of the uterus. During the menstrual cycle, one ovary will develop and mature an egg. The egg is encased in a sac called a follicle. About day 14 of the menstrual cycle, ovulation occurs and the egg is released from the ovary.

      Are Ovarian Cysts Dangerous?
      Most are harmless “functional” or “physiologic” cysts. Between 4% and 10% of women of childbearing age develop a potentially serious metabolic dysfunction, known as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Multiple cysts are one hallmark of PCOS. PCOS also includes hormonal disruptions that can result in persistent acne, excessive body hair, thinning scalp hair, infertility, obesity, and increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and uterine or breast cancer.

      Ovarian cysts can cause discomfort during intercourse. They may bleed, rupture, or twist the ovary, causing significant pelvic pain. Sudden or severe pelvic pain, especially with vomiting or a fever, should be treated as a medical emergency.

      Some ovarian cysts can become cancerous. These are all rare cancers and are most common in women in their fifties. Cancerous ovaries are usually not painful unless they grow very large before they are discovered. Annual pelvic exams are the best preventative method for detecting gynecologic cancers in the early, most treatable stages.

      Ovarian Cyst Symptoms
      It’s not easy to know whether you have ovarian cysts. You can have cysts without any symptoms at all, or you may have vague abdominal symptoms that could suggest a number of health problems that are completely unrelated to ovarian cysts.

      Some abdominal conditions with symptoms similar to painful ovarian cysts are: appendicitis, diverticulitis, intestinal inflammation or obstruction, gall bladder disease, kidney stone, or bladder infection. Gynecologic problems with symptoms similar to ovarian cysts are: pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, ectopic or tubal pregnancy, or mittleschmirtz, the pain some women feel at mid-cycle, after normal ovulation.

      In general, one or more of the following symptoms could be related to ovarian cysts:

      Menstrual irregularities.
      Pelvic pain – a dull ache, either constant or intermittent, possibly radiating to the low back or thighs.
      Pelvic pain during intercourse.
      Pelvic pain just before your period begins or just after it ends.
      A fullness or heaviness in your abdomen.
      Feeling of pressure on your bladder or rectum.
      Nausea or breast tenderness similar to when you’re pregnant.
      Continuous, creamy or clear-like-eggwhite vaginal discharge that persists unchanged for a month or more.
      Any of these symptoms are sufficient cause to consult with your health professional.

      If you have sudden, severe or spasmodic pain in your lower abdomen, especially if accompanied by fever, vomiting, or signs of shock (cold, clammy skin, rapid breathing, weakness), go immediately to the emergency room of the nearest hospital.

      Types of Benign Ovarian Cysts
      1) Functional (physiologic) cysts. The most common type of ovarian cyst is the functional cyst, also called a physiologic cyst. “Physiologic” means the cyst is non-pathogenic. It develops from tissue that changes during the process of ovulation. Your ovaries normally grow cystic structures called follicles each month. Typically, these resolve back to normal ovarian tissue after ovulation. But sometimes there is a glitch and the fluid-filled cyst stays on for a while.

      Functional cysts fall into two categories; follicular cyst, and corpus luteum cyst.

      Follicular cyst. The pituitary gland in your brain sends a message, by increasing luteinizing hormone (LH), to the follicle holding the ripening egg. This is called a “LH surge”. Normally, the egg is released from the follicle and starts down the fallopian tube where it may then become fertilized by a sperm cell. If the LH surge does not occur, the follicle doesn’t rupture or release its egg. Instead, it grows until it becomes a cyst. These cysts seldom cause pain, are usually harmless, and may disappear within two or three menstrual cycles.

      Corpus luteum cyst. When there is a successful LH surge and the egg is released, the follicle responds by becoming a new, temporarily little secretory gland called the corpus luteum. The corpus luteum produces large amounts of progesterone and a little bit of estrogen, to prepare the uterus for conception.
      But occasionally, after the egg is released, the escape hatch seals off prematurely and tissue accumulates inside, causing the corpus luteum to enlarge. This type of cyst will usually disappear after a few weeks. Rarely, a corpus luteum cyst can grow to 3″-4″ in diameter and potentially bleed into itself, or twist your ovary, thus causing pelvic or abdominal pain.

      2) Dermoid cyst. A dermoid cyst is mainly fat but can also contain a mix of different tissues. They are often small and usually don’t cause symptoms. Very rarely, they become large and rupture, causing bleeding into the abdomen, which is a medical emergency.

      3) Endometrioma or “chocolate cyst”. These are cysts that form when endometrial tissue (the type that lines the inside of the uterus) invades an ovary. It is responsive to monthly hormonal changes, which causes the cyst to fill with blood. It’s called a “chocolate cyst” because the blood is a dark, reddish-brown color. Multiple endometriomas are found in the condition called “endometriosis”. Although often asymptomatic, chocolate cysts can be painful, especially during your period or during intercourse.

      4) Cystadenoma. Cystadenomas are cysts that develop from cells on the surface of your ovary. They are usually benign. Occasionally, they can become quite large and thus interfere with abdominal organs and cause pain.

      5) Multiple cysts – the polycystic ovary. Women who don’t ovulate on a regular basis can develop multiple cysts. The ovaries are often enlarged and contain many small cysts clustered under a thickened, outer capsule. There are many factors causing a woman to not ovulate and develop polycystic ovaries. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a complex condition that involves multiple hormonal and organ system dysfunction. Multiple ovarian cysts are just one facet of this disorder.

      How Ovarian Cysts are Diagnosed
      Pelvic Exam. An ovarian cyst may be discovered by your doctor during a pelvic exam, while she is palpating your ovaries. If a cyst is suspected, an ultrasound is usually the next step.

      Pelvic Ultrasound. Ultrasound is a painless procedure where sound waves are transmitted through your pelvic area and an image of your ovaries and uterus is shown on a video screen. The image is analyzed to determine the nature of the cyst.

      Laparoscopy. Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure performed when your doctor wants to see the cyst. A thin, lighted telescope, called a laparoscope, is inserted through a small incision into your abdomen. Laparoscopy may be used for treatment as well as diagnosis.

      How Ovarian Cysts are Usually Treated
      Watchful Waiting. If you have no symptoms and ultrasound shows a small, fluid-filled cyst, your doctor may simply schedule another pelvic exam and ultrasound in six weeks. The concept behind watchful waiting is to not actively treat the cyst until does not go away as your hormones change. An unchanging or growing cystic ovary needs further investigation.

      Birth Control Pills. If you have a functional cyst that is larger in size and causing some symptoms, birth control pills may be prescribed. The purpose of birth control pills is to alter your hormone levels so the cyst will shrink. Birth control pills will reduce the probability of other cysts growing.

      Surgery. Your cyst may be surgically removed if it is large, solid or filled with debris, persistently growing, irregularly shaped, or causing pain or other symptoms. If the cyst is not cancerous, it can be surgically removed without also removing the ovary. This is called a cystectomy. In some cases, the doctor may want to remove the affected ovary, while leaving the other intact in order to maintain your ability to have a normal hormone cycle.

      Can Ovarian Cysts Be Prevented?
      It may not be possible to completely eliminate ovarian cysts. However, you can minimize the probability that they will form and grow.

      You can do this in several fundamental ways:

      Improve the quality of your diet.
      Increase your exercise.
      Control chronic stress.
      Use bio-identical hormones, supplements and herbs to help balance your hormonal system.
      Improve your overall health.

      Diet and Ovarian Cysts
      A recent study from the Institute of Research Pharmacology in Italy analyzed the diet over a ten-year span of 225 women with benign ovarian cysts and 450 women who did not have ovarian cysts.

      The researchers discovered that the type of food eaten influenced the development of cysts. For example, they said that women who consumed the most beef and cheese developed the most ovarian cysts. In contrast, consumption of green vegetables provided a strong protective effect. This study makes it clear that what you eat will influence whether or not you develop ovarian cysts.

      We have written an in-depth diet ebook for women with PCOS. But the dietary recommendations in the ebook are the same for ovarian cysts. If you have this problem, consider purchasing The Natural Diet Solution to PCOS and Infertility ebook.

  4. QUESTION:
    Is it a ruptured ovarian cyst?
    I have abdominal pain, recently diagnosed with PCOS, nausea, bilateral lower quadrant pain, “hot” belly, and brown discharge with some dark bloody fluid. Is it possible that I have ruptured a cyst? If so must I go to the ER? I don’t have a fever so I am not too worried.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Kirsten

      Important stuff first. It does sound as if you may have a ruptured ovarian cyst, though often they are accompanied by fever as well as the symptoms you mention. I would certainly recommend that see your doctor soonest (explain to the receptionist, she will fit you in quickly), and IF you develop a fever, then yes, go straight to ER.

      Less urgent. The cysts in PCOS are generally small, they do not rupture and they don’t give these symptoms. If you were diagnosed with PCOS just on the basis of having more than one cyst in your ovary (by ultrasound), then you may want to revisit or challenge that diagnosis. Seeing multiple cysts on ultrasound does NOT necessarily mean PCOS. If, on the other hand, you have been properly diagnosed with PCOS (at least 3 of the classic symptoms, and blood tests to back it up), then ignore this paragraph.

  5. QUESTION:
    Cramping without an actual menstrual cycle?
    Every few months or so I cramp while I’m supposed to be having my cycle, but I don’t actually bleed. Sometimes I’ll come up with a little bit of black discharge later, but I don’t always have an actual period. I’m going to the doctor on Monday, but I assume I should have blood if I’m hurting like I do. I also have been known to have ovarian cysts…but they went away and my doctor said they were normal. Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      Ovarian cysts can prevent a period. They can also cause pain. The discharge that you have could be coming from old blood that sometimes occurs after a cyst ruptures. Each month cysts can come and go. However, it is not normal to not have a period every month. This is easily diagnosed and easily treated, providing that the symptoms are only what you have described. You have done the right thing by making an appointment with your doctor.
