Ovarian Cyst

An ovarian cyst is a common condition where fluid-filled sacs develop on one or both ovaries. These cysts can vary in size and may cause discomfort or complications if they rupture or become twisted.

You might have an ovarian cyst if you have:

Pelvic pain or pressure
Irregular menstrual cycles
Pain during intercourse
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Endometriosis, a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal disorder causing enlarged ovaries with small cysts on the outer edges
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Bloating or abdominal swelling
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Feeling full quickly while eating
  • Monitor symptoms and report any changes to your GP
  • Pain management with over-the-counter medication
  • Hormonal birth control to regulate menstrual cycles and prevent new cysts
  • In serious cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the cyst
