What Are the Symptoms of Ovarian Cysts?

A hallmark of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, or PCOS, cystic ovaries occur when pockets, often filled with fluid, develop on the outside of an ovary.1 One of many PCOS symptoms, ovarian cysts are not always experienced by women who have this condition; however, they are common. Often a result of Insulin Resistance, PCOS is associated with many different symptoms that occur in unique combinations from one woman to the next.

Do I Have Ovarian Cysts?

A cyst on an ovary can occur independently of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, although the discovery of such cysts may prove important in making a firm diagnosis for some women. Determining whether or not ovarian cysts are present is a process that requires medical tests, often performed through ultrasounds.1 Ovarian cyst symptoms, listed below, are frequently what prompt women to have their ovaries checked for abnormalities:2

  • Atypical menstrual cycle or flow
  • Dull pain in the pelvis, which may be constant or sporadic and may spread to the thighs and lower back
  • Dyspareunia, or pelvic pain experienced during sexual intercourse
  • Pelvic pain that occurs only before or after menstruation
  • Pressure on bowels
  • Pain during bowel movements
  • Nausea
  • Breast tenderness
  • Bloating of the abdomen
  • Pressure on the bladder, causing increased need to urinate and difficulty doing so

While many cysts are asymptomatic and disintegrate without medical intervention, some may require medical attention.2 Women who experience sudden, severe pain in the abdominal and pelvic regions are encouraged to seek medical treatment immediately; additionally, women who develop a fever or begin vomiting should see a healthcare professional right away.2 Other signs of emergency include the symptoms associated with shock, i.e. rapid breathing, weakness, lightheadedness, and clammy skin.2

Addressing Ovarian Cysts

After discovering an ovarian cyst, healthcare professionals may run additional tests to determine how to best treat it. In many cases, treatment is not a necessity.1 In others, physicians may further investigate to determine if these cysts are associated with PCOS or are cancerous.1 If a large cyst develops, healthcare experts may decide to surgically remove it.1

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is associated with many symptoms that can range from inconvenient to severe. Although ovarian cysts may be more mild in nature than other symptoms connected with this condition, they should not be ignored. Women who suspect that they may have ovarian cysts are encouraged to talk about their symptoms with their doctors.

The other thing a women suffering Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) might do is to look into the Insulite Health 5-Element System that is available. In particular, the PCOS System offers hormone-balancing effects that have been scientifically calibrated to reverse the condition. That means there is very much hope here, and, for women who properly educate themselves and take the precautions necessary to thwart the effects of the disease, no reason why PCOS has to be interpreted as a devastating diagnosis.
