Ovarian Cyst

By leejhen | All about Health | 29 Nov 2020

Does it ring a bell? Did it scare you? Did you experience also? Having a cyst on your ovary? Hopefully not. Nobody wants to get sick. So I hope all of us are well and healthy.

The ovary is the smallest part of a woman's body located near the uterus.

In every menstrual cycle, small eggs are formed and grow in the ovary called sac or follicle.

If the eggs were released and the woman will not get pregnant. Sac will mostly dissolve and gone.

But sometimes there's a probability that water entered to sac.

When it overflows, it will become bigger and very painful resulting in an ovarian cyst.

The most common causes of ovarian cyst is hormonal problem.

Mostly the cyst will disappear on its own and then the pain will slowly fade within 3 days.

If the cyst will not go, it will cause continuous pain.

    -if you feel a sudden, severe, and sharp pain.

  • Painful sex


  • Difficulty during bowel movements.

  • Frequent urination.

  • Irregular menstruation.

What to do if you are in pain?



If you are in pain just relax at home and don't overwork yourself and carry heavy objects until the pain subside.


A heating pad or hot pack

It can help you a lot by putting a hot pack on your lower abdomen. A simple small towel soaked in hot water can ease the pain.


Use Pain reliever

You can also use a pain reliever. But don't forget to ask your doctor first if you are suffering from other diseases as it may affect your health. You need to drink the correct and right pain reliever if you have any other illness.
