Ways To Prevent Large Ovarian Cysts

The only positive way of determining whether you have a cyst and what size it is, is by going to your doctor for an ultrasound. If it transpires that you have a large ovarian cyst, then it will be necessary to consider forms of treatment, since larger cysts are prone to cause pain and possibly rupture.

There are a few types of common ovarian cyst that you should be aware of. Follicular cysts can grow up to two inches but they rarely cause pain. Dermoid cysts are more of a problem since they can contain bone, hair and teeth, grow up to six inches in size and cause severe pain. Lastly, endometrioid cysts can grow up to eight inches and cause a lot of pain during menstruation.

Whilst the above cysts can all cause pain, on the positive side none of them are permanent. There is no way you need to suffer the agonies of an ovarian cyst for your entire life. Most cysts will go away without any form of treatment, but meanwhile it is important to learn how to prevent cysts so that you don’t have to endure that type of pain ever again.

Many women are led to believe that medication and surgery are their only options when dealing with a large ovarian cyst but there are natural treatments that will offer relief from pain and inflammation and will help to shrink away the cyst and prevent it from recurring. Surgery can only remove any cysts that are currently on your ovaries, but will do nothing to prevent future cysts from developing. Also hormonal tablets that are often prescribed to women can have just as damaging side effects as the cysts themselves. So you can see how necessary it is to be very careful when choosing a method of treatment.

One of the best natural treatments is to make changes in your everyday diet starting with including a lot of fibre and drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. Having a fibre rich diet helps the body to get rid of waste more easily and prevents constipation which when combined with the pain from an ovarian cyst, can make life very uncomfortable. Try including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, preferably with their skin left on, beans and pulses, bran flakes and whole grain bread. Drink plenty of water to flush toxins out of the body and keep everything moving through. In addition herbal teas such as camomile and mint can be very helpful, since they calm both the mind and the body.

This is only one lifestyle change but there are a lot of natural remedies and treatments that you can do yourself at home to help relieve any pain you are suffering and to prevent the future growth of any large ovarian cysts.

    I have large fibroids in my uterus (5 month pregnant) and c-section will be performed. Will it be painful?

I am scared as it is my first pregnancy and I need more kids. Will these fibroids decrease in size by themselves or I need the treatment after pregnency?

    • ANSWER:
      “After pregnancy, fibroids tend to shrink in size, and probably won’t cause you any problems.” I found a website that might be able to answer some of your questions.

    What is the average size of a human uterus ??
    I have been scanned and found to have two large fibroids but not sure how their size compares to the size of my uterus. Or what the treament may be.

    • ANSWER:
      The uterus varies in size depending on the woman’s age and whether she has had previous pregnancies. The average adult uterus is about 3 inches long, 2 inches wide, and 1 inch thick. After menopause, the uterus shrinks to the pre-adolescent size.

      Uterine fibroids are tumors or growths, made up of muscle cells and other tissues that grow within the wall of the uterus (or womb). Although fibroids are sometimes called tumors, they are almost always benign (not cancerous). The medical term for fibroids is uterine leiomyomata (you-ter-in lie-oh-my-oh-mah-tah). Fibroids can grow as a single growth or in clusters (or groups). Their size can vary from small, like an apple seed (or less than one inch), to even larger than a grapefruit, or eight inches across or more.

      Uterine fibroids are the most common, benign tumors in women of childbearing age, but no one knows exactly what causes them. They can be frustrating to live with when they cause symptoms. Not all women with fibroids have symptoms, but some have pain and heavy menstrual bleeding. Fibroids also can put pressure on the bladder, causing frequent urination.
