Ovarian Cysts

What are ovarian cysts? 

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs found on the ovary’s surface or within the ovaries. There are two ovaries on opposite sides of the uterus in a woman’s body. The ovaries have the main function of producing an egg for reproduction. Each ovary is similar in size and shape to an almond.

These ovaries are quite common to have cysts developing in them. These cysts are usually benign growths, and you won’t even know you have them. These can easily go away with medications from your doctor. But, sometimes the cyst can twist  and burst, they can cause serious health issues. To protect yourself from ovarian cysts, visit our expert infertility specialist, Dr. Preeti Rastogi. Our doctor can conduct a pelvic exam and reduce the chances of you developing cysts.

What causes ovarian cysts?

There are many reasons why ovarian cysts develop in patients. These are some of the reasons:

  • Hormone problems: Women nearing menopause and young girls reaching their age of puberty experience a lot of hormonal changes. These changes might be the reason for the development of ovarian cysts.
  • Endometriosis: It is a condition in which the cysts are filled with menstrual blood. Our doctors will perform a safe and generally painless endometriosis surgeryto get these cysts out.

Types of ovarian cysts

There are two main types of ovarian cysts that we know of. These are:

  • Follicle cyst: Every month in your menstrual cycle, an egg is produced in the ovary. This egg bursts out of its follicle and travels down the fallopian tube. If the follicle does not burst for some reason, a cyst may start to develop.
  • Corpus luteum cysts: If the follicle or the corpus luteum has a blockage, such a cyst may form.

How do we test for ovarian cysts?

  • Transvaginal ultrasound: This state-of-art device can take images of your uterus and ovaries using sound waves.
