The ultrasound term anechoic (no echos) may be used to describe fluid, either cyst fluid or fresh blood. In either of these phases(follicular and luteal phase), larger than normal amounts of fluid collect, one can develop ovarian cysts that will cause pain or menstrual bleeding changes. A normal ovary is about 2 x 3 cm (almond sized). A follicular ovarian cyst, if the egg is not ejected and the amount of fluid continues to increase, can reach sizes of up to 10 cm. Fortunately most follicular cysts are smaller and will resolve within one to three months. If the size is large (eg greater than 8 cm) the heavy cyst can prompt the ovary to twist on itself like a heavy flower on a too fragile stalk. This twisting “ovarian torsion” causes intense pain as it cuts off the blood supply to the ovary. While follicular cysts are the most common type of ovarian cysts, torsion is uncommon. In another condition, polycystic ovaries “polycystic ovarian syndrome/PCOS“, the ovary will contain multiple small follicular cysts. Unlike the cysts described above, PCOS cysts will usually stay small. Yet, like other follicular cysts the egg is not ejected. This lack of ovulations contributes to the fertility problems seen in PCOS. If excessive amounts of fluid collect, a corpus luteum cyst can also get large enough to cause pain or very rarely, ovarian torsion. Occasionally, this type of cyst will have a small blood vessel which continues to bleed into a corpus luteum cyst. This is called a “hemorrhagic ovarian cyst”. A cyst of this type can either leak small amounts of blood, or it can rupture, spilling blood into the abdomen. This hemorrhagic ovarian cyst can be linked to prolonged pain, and merits closer follow up. The treatment is by waiting and watching, in certain conditions oral contraceptive pills help, but unless there's immense pain and continuous symptomatic discomfort only will any intervention be required as they've shown to heal on their own. These following steps can help normalize periods and help in reducing the cysts: - Avoid fatty, oily, fried and junk food - Exercise regularly (30-45 mins per day) - Destress yourself with practices such as yoga/meditation - Maintain a healthy body and diet (Maintain a healthy weight as per your BMI) - Have vegetable juices - Include corn, beets, lettuce, drumsticks, and pumpkin seeds in your daily diet - Avoid smoking and alcohol if you have the habit

Hello,The ovaries are two small organs located on either side of the uterus in a woman’s body. They make hormones, including estrogen, which trigger menstruation. Every month, the ovaries release a tiny egg. The egg makes its way down the fallopian tube to potentially be fertilized. This cycle of egg release is called ovulation. Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can form in the ovaries. They are very common. They are particularly common during the childbearing years. There are several different types of ovarian cysts. The most common is a functional cyst. It forms during ovulation. That formation happens when either the egg is not released or the sac,follicle in which the egg forms does not dissolve after the egg is released.other types are Polycystic ovaries: In polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the follicles in which the eggs normally mature fail to open and cysts form.Endometriosis: In women with endometriosis, tissue from the lining of the uterus grows in other areas of the body. This includes the ovaries. It can be very painful and can affect fertility. Cystadenomas: These cysts form out of cells on the surface of the ovary. They are often fluid-filled.Dermoid cysts:This type of cyst contains tissue similar to that in other parts of the body. That includes skin, hair, and teeth. Symptoms are Pain or bloating in the abdomen,Difficulty urinating, or frequent need to urinate,Dull ache in the lower back Pain during sexual intercourse,Painful menstruation and abnormal bleeding Weight gain,Nausea or vomiting. Treatment:Most ovarian cysts will go away on their own. If you don't have any bothersome symptoms, especially if you haven’t yet gone through menopause, your doctor may advocate ''watchful waiting.'' But the doctor will check you every one to three months to see if there has been any change in the cyst. Surgery is an option if the cyst doesn’t go away, grows, or causes you pain. There are two types of surgery: 01)Laparoscopy uses a very small incision and a tiny, lighted telescope-like instrument. The instrument is inserted into the abdomen to remove the cyst. This technique works for smaller cysts. 02)Laparotomy involves a bigger incision in the stomach. Doctors prefer this technique for larger cysts and. If the growth is cancerous, the surgeon will remove as much of the tumor as possible. This is called debulking. Consult your obstetrician and gynaecologist for furthur care and evaluation.
