Getting RESULTS with Home Treatment of Ovarian Cysts

Jul 17, 2008
Usually a functional cyst is not life threatening and will go away by itself. Yet if a cyst grows very large, then twisting, bleeding or breaking may occur with serious pain. Ovarian cysts that are functional are in fact tiny "bags" which are generated on the ovary when ovulation occurs. The cyst has the job of retaining the egg as it matures and generally the "bag" is reabsorbed when the egg has been let go. If the egg is not let go or the hole in the bag closes after the egg, swelling can occur with fluid retention. Treating ovarian cysts at home is still a matter of debate amongst medical personnel.

Using birth control pills in the time between the tenth and the twenty-sixth day of menstruation has been proved to lessen the effects of Luteinizing hormones. The result is that there is no stimulation of the cyst and after one or two additional cycles the body will simply reabsorb it without further consequences. Contraceptive pills can prevent ovulation and when this happens there is much less risk that cysts will occur. This in turn diminishes the different symptoms such as pain. The remedy is referred to as therapy by natural progesterone and is accomplished by the injection of natural progesterone being injected into the blood circulatory system, which therefore lessens the level of secretion of Luteinizing hormones. Each ovary considers that the other one has ovulated, because of the presence of the progesterone, and therefore no ovulation in fact occurs. Ovarian cyst home treatment should only be considered if a proper diagnosis has been executed by a specialist because there is always a chance of malignancy in the cyst.

The debate is still open concerning the use of oral contraceptives to remedy ovarian cysts. Studies exist that suggest to experts that whether a woman uses birth control pills or not has no bearing on a cyst diminishing. Although it works, the control of ovarian cysts through birth control pills is not habitually recommended as a remedy. Birth control pills prevent additional cysts from developing but have no effect on the ones that exist already.

Patients should always consult their physician first, as with any medicament. The vitamins B and E which are found for example in whole grains have the ability to help adjust the levels of hormones. Both vitamins B and E have been proven to be of benefit to the liver and the ovaries. To go one better, treatment by contraceptive pills is often prescribed together with a method of hormonal contraception. The dominance by estrogen typically results in PMS or Pre-Menstrual Syndrome, and in this case patients are often prescribed a level of 600 I. C. of vitamin E, a magnesium supplement of 300mg per day and vitamin E at 50mg per day.

Natural home treatments of ovarian cysts can help to alleviate the distress associated with functional ovarian cysts. The basic remedies of the hot water bottle and the warm bath both alleviate muscular cramps. Using painkillers bought over the counter such as Acetaminophen, or Aleve and Advil to counter inflammation can lessen discomfort. Nevertheless there are certain drawbacks and their usage should therefore be kept to a minimum. It is also important for ovarian cyst sufferers to avoid constipation. Although this does not have any impact on the ovarian cysts it can increase pelvic discomfort.

NSAIDs are only effective when taken immediately symptoms are found. Secondary effects comprise feelings of being giddy and being nauseous. In addition, over utilization can provoke kidney failure and liver damage. Anyone drinking alcohol (more than two drinks per day for women) should not combine this with Acetaminophen. Acetaminophen reduces fever and pain, but does not act on inflammation. Aspirin and ibuprofen are anti-inflammatory. To lower pressure in the bladder and bring some initial relief, the recommendation is to empty your bladder as soon as you feel the urge to urinate. Herbal teas incorporating chamomile, mint and raspberry have all been demonstrated to sooth muscles and moods when they are both under tension. It is recommended to lower intake of alcohol, caffeine and sugar. Having a trained specialist treat ovarian cysts is almost always the best decision.

Although home remedies can reduce the symptoms, home treatments for ovarian cysts should never be thought of as the only option. A holistic approach is the only sure way of treating the varying cysts and preventing them from returning. Almost nine out of ten ovarian cysts are benign meaning that they are not cancerous. The ovarian cyst home treatment also depends on the size of the cyst and any symptoms that are detected with it. For small and symptom-less cysts, it may also be wise to wait and see as long as you also have regular medical checkups.
