Ovarian Cysts Can Have Serious Complications

Aug 7, 2008
Anyone who has a cyst in the ovary is prone to various complications that may arise from it. Thus if there are certain symptoms, it is always best to go for a pelvic scan or examination. Sometimes the size of the cyst can also be very large and when this is the case, the abdominal pain can be acute. In some cases, the cyst also presses the urinary bladder and so the person may need to urinate more often. Ovarian cyst treatments are most successfully achieved through holistic remedies.

There is yet another reason why you should have a check up done for ovarian cysts and other pelvic conditions and that is that some women develop ovarian cysts that are not commonly found. These are painless and do not result in any of the common symptoms which accompany the usual type of ovarian cysts. It is these uncommon types of cysts that can cause complications. It has also been found that sometimes the symptoms are hard to distinguish from those found at the time of pregnancy. As a matter of fact, many women have only come to realize that they have developed ovarian cysts after they have bled severely. Initially, they mistook this bleeding for miscarriage.

Although you may have ovarian cysts in your body which cause complications, these are not necessarily malignant. However, these are not the functional types of ovarian cysts and you will only come to know about the symptoms and feel the pain at a much later date, when the cyst has developed substantially. It must also be kept in mind that ovarian cysts can hamper the fertility of women. And finally, ovarian cysts which develop in women who have reached menopause can be dangerous as they often tend to be cancerous.

Here are some non functional cysts in the ovary that may lead to complications.

1) The Dermoid Ovarian Cysts: These cysts are formed from the same cells which make up the human egg. That is why these cysts often consist of teeth, hair, skin or other types of human tissues. In most cases, they are not cancerous but, when they become large, they can be extremely painful and can cause complications if they twist on themselves.

(2) Endometriomas: The uterus cells help the cyst to grow but it grows on the uterus' outside - but it is still attached to the ovary.

3) Cystadenomas: A cyst that is filled with fluids, these can grow to a size of 12 inches. These ovarian cysts can cause complications such as the twisting of the ovary.

The type pf the cyst also determines what the complications are. Those cysts that are non functional, are the ones that lead to the maximum complications. The reason behind this is the fact that functional cysts can be treated with medications and also through surgery. And those cysts that cannot be classified also lead to complications as their causes are not identified - as a result, the treatment is also not determined. Having sex while carrying the cyst is not good as there can be a lot of pain and some bleeding too.

The complications of cysts can be treated surely, yet most treatment options treat just the symptoms. But the holistic approach tries to identify the real causes due to which the cyst is getting formed and having done so, treats them and not just the symptoms such as the pain. What causes the cyst may be varied such as immunity problems, obesity, toxins in the digestive system, poor diet, other medical problems and even genetic reasons.

Thus, in order to completely get rid of the complications of the ovarian cysts you need to remove the root cause of the cysts, and for that reason the best approach would be the holistic approach.
