What is an ovarian cyst?

An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that forms on or inside an ovary. The ovaries are a pair of small, oval-shaped organs in the lower part of a woman’s belly (abdomen). About once a month, one of the ovaries releases an egg. The ovaries also make the hormones estrogen and progesterone. These play roles in pregnancy, the menstrual cycle, and breast growth.

How is an ovarian cyst formed?

Each month, ovaries release an egg, which travels down the fallopian tubes where it can be fertilized by sperm.

Each egg forms inside the ovary in a structure known as a follicle. The follicle contains fluid that protects the egg as it grows, and it bursts when the egg is released.

But sometimes a follicle does not release an egg or does not discharge its fluid and shrinks after the egg is released. If this happens, the follicle can swell and become a cyst.

Types of ovarian cyst

Functional cyst:-  a normal cyst that occurs in a normal menstrual cycle 

  • Follicular cyst:- This cyst happens when an egg isn’t released. It keeps growing inside the ovary
  • Corpus luteum cyst:- This type of cyst occurs when the sac around the egg doesn’t dissolve after the egg is released.

Pathological cyst:-

  • Endometrial cyst:-This cyst is filled with old blood and tissue that resembles the lining of the uterus. They are often called chocolate cysts because of the dark color of the fluid within them. They can happen in women with endometriosis. 
  • Multiple cysts – Pcos
  • Dermoid cyst:- This cyst develops from ovarian cells and eggs. They may have hair, skin, teeth, bone, or fat in them. These cysts are common in women of childbearing age.
  • Ovarian cancer cystadenoma:- this cyst is commonly noted in post-menopausal women.

How ovarian cyst is diagnosed?

  • Physical examination by a doctor 
  • Ultrasonography of abdomen
  • CT scan
  • Blood check:-These check for hormone problems and cancer. They also check if the cyst is bleeding.

How ovarian cyst is treated?

Treatment is mainly dependent on 

  • Patient age
  • Fertility status
  • Symptoms
  • Site and involvement of cyst
  • General health

Most women with a functional cyst may not require any treatment but will require follow-up monthly to access the growth and symptoms, mostly it resolves on its own in a few months.

In the case of a pathological cyst, we need to access the cause of the pathology, And treatment is planned accordingly, according to our experience majority of cases have hormonal imbalance as the root cause of the cyst especially the estrogen and progesterone, Homeopathic medicine is known to address the root cause of the hormonal imbalance. In the majority of cases, even surgery can be avoided.

If homeopathic consultation is chosen appropriately a due risk of hysterectomy, HRT, and infertility complications can be avoided. The discomfort of pain, irregular, heavy, scanty, or intermittent menstrual cycle are treated considering the holistic health

We have developed female reproductive protocols for many health conditions related to gynecological disorders.

Conventional medicine aims at surgically removing the cyst. we don’t believe this is the right approach. In our treatment protocol, we understand the patient’s past medical history of menstrual irregularities, hormonal replacement therapy, and any comorbidity condition like hypothyroid, obesity, etc are taken into consideration when deciding the treatment strategy.

 Duration of treatment

It takes almost a period of between eight to ten months as we are using oral medication which is designed to provide permanent correction in the system.

Unlike in conventional medicine where the physical cyst is treated surgically.

Every month due follow-up is ascertained in terms of the pain, changes in cycle, lab test, and repeating sonography at regular intervals to compare the size of the cyst.

Our treatment goal is to restore your hormonal imbalance, which we believe has been a causative factor in the formation of ovarian cysts. In doing so we help you in your pain and irregular cycle. All of this is done without any hormonal replacement therapy.
