Side Effects Of Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian Cysts Side Effects Revealed

The side effects of ovarian cysts include excessive bleeding at the time of menstruation, blood from vagina, pain in the breasts and pelvis and more. Let’s take a closer look at these various side effects:

Heavy bleeding at the time of menstruation

The possibility of more blood flow at the time of menstruation increases after an ovarian cyst surgery. The first period after the surgery may take place after two to three months of the surgery. In other cases, it can take a longer time. There is an increase in menstrual blood flow after a surgery from the pre-surgery state. There have been reports of some women getting post surgery periods after ten days of the first one.

Vaginal Bleeding

Sudden bleeding in women always causes concern and it should always be considered dangerous. Apart from usual menstruation or an occasional heavy period, any other abnormality can spell danger. It is important to understand the precise reason behind any abnormal bleeding. The origin of the blood should also be carefully studied. Blood may originate from the uterus or an organ tissue. It is only after a clear understanding of the origin of bleeding that measures to control and stop it should be decided upon. Vaginal bleeding can be of a fatal nature and needs urgent attention.

Usually, a classic menstrual cycle spans 28 days. One can keep a margin of seven days. The period itself can last between two to seven days. The volume of blood and fluid discharged in a typical period is approximately 5 table spoons. This equates to around 8 or fewer soaked pads per day.

The number of days when heavy discharge is registered should not be more than 2. If bleeding is still noticed from the vagina after a menstrual cycle is over, it may be called an abnormal or dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding. It is when there has to be consideration on whether the ovarian cyst exists or not.
Sometimes, complications in the process of the hormone that begins the process of menstruation and it increases by so much that it results in a complete imbalance in progesterone and oestrogen levels. This causes the body to over produce the uterine flow of blood, which in turn leads to an increase in bleeding from the vagina. Such complications arise due to the presence of ovarian cysts.

Vaginal bleeding has a dual nature: it is one of the side effects of ovarian cysts and also a symptom. Once vaginal bleeding is noticed, it is important to keep track of it as it will help immensely in understanding how serious the ovarian cyst is. If blood is noticed to flow from the vagina at times when the woman is not in the menstrual cycle, urgent medical attention should be sought. It may well indicate the presence of cysts in the ovary.

Early attention will help in diagnosis and treatment, and proper medication can be suggested before the situation gets worse. One should always remember that depending on the holistic system is the finest decision.

Breast pain

Any pain in the breasts should be taken seriously. Tenderness in the breasts should not be ignored, too. These conditions, if ignored, can lead to very serious consequences, such as ovarian cysts. Breast pain that arises from ovarian cysts begins by making them get increasingly tender as each day passes. A prompt diagnosis is strongly recommended under such circumstances. Otherwise, it will lead to further deterioration and complications.

The initial tenderness leads to pain in the breasts. There can also be a severe imbalance in hormone levels in the body. The estrogen secretion correlates breast pain and ovarian cysts. It is important to take corrective measures against ovarian cysts, as they will automatically take care of the breast pain. If left untreated, it may even lead to breast cancer!

Pelvic pain

Ovarian cysts affects copulatory organ in women. Actually, they happen both due to fertilization and its absence. It is therefore natural that ovarian cysts are accompanied by pelvic pain. Pelvis remains the worst affected part of the body. In dealing with ovarian cysts, the pelvis bears the entire pressure and thus, is very severely impacted. It is therefore needless to stress the importance of taking utmost care to cure pelvic pain resulting from ovarian cysts.

The holistic approach

All the side effects of ovarian cysts that have been discussed so far are related and interlinked. The most effective way of combating ovarian cysts is by adopting the holistic system which totally concentrates on overall health development and well-being through the use of spiritualism as well as philosophy. As history has shown us again and again, it is always better to start at the very basic. And this is what holistic system is all about. If one diligently follows the holistic approach in curing cysts, the side-effects can be easily averted.

The holistic approach actually is an approach that borders on divinity. It not only cures ovarian cysts in an individual, but also helps develop a positive attitude for life. With the holistic approach, one will never have to look back again. It will seem like a miracle to realize that none of the side effects of ovarian cyst has really touched you and you are already on you way to complete recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    I got the Merina IUD last year and now I have a ovarian cyst, is that a side effect?
    After I got the Merina IUD my periods were still every month. I even bled for 2 weeks every month. I thought maybe it would get better but after nearly a year I decided to have it taken out. But before I had it taken out I started getting really bad craps on one side of my belly. I went to the emergency room thinking it might have been a tubal pregnancy. Because that is one of the side effects my OB told me about. She also told me about ovarian cysts. Well the OB at the emergency room told me it was a cyst. I was freak’n out. I told them right then and there that I wanted the IUD taken out. They told me that the cyst was not and could not be caused by the IUD. I had it taken out August 23rd. Now I have seen commercials on TV for the IUD and it says that a side effect is ovarian cysts. So I will never have the Merina IUD put in again.

    • ANSWER:
      I have been having a similiar problem. Really bad cramps on the lower left side of my belly. I have had the Mirena for 3 months now. I have been back to see my GYN multiple times and she says that ovarian cysts are a side effect of the Mirena but that usually they disappear on their own. I go back next month for an ultrasound to confirm whether this is what is happening. Until then I have a nice little supply of painkillers to help with the cramping.

      I too did not know that ovarian cysts were a side effect of the Mirena until after I had it inserted. My GYN said to give it 6 months and if I’m still cramping then I will have to have it removed.

      Sorry that this happened to you. I definitely think that the cyst was related to the IUD.

  2. QUESTION:
    Can a women still reproduce if she had and ovarian cyst removed? What are some of the side effects ?
    I know a women who had this procedure done and wasn’t sure if she could ever give birth.

    • ANSWER:
      Some women get cysts on their ovaries from time to time. While this may cause a little scarring, it shouldn’t prevent her from having children. At worst, the scar tissue could prevent her ovary from releasing an egg. Since she has two ovaries, it could decrease her chance of pregnancy, but not end it all together. Keep in mind, I am talking about worst case scenario when I say her ovary is to the point where it can’t release an egg. If this is a serious issue, tests such as an HSG (Hysterosalpingogram) can be done. Dye is injected into a woman’s reproductive system while x-rays are taken. The dye shows up bright white on the x-ray and can show any places where blockages or abnormalities are located. It only takes about 10 minutes but usually has to be done at a hospital and costs around ,300 (was covered undered insurance for me).

  3. QUESTION:
    Side effects of stopping the long term use of Birth Control pills?
    I have been on birth control pills for a total of 10 years, first as a method of birth control then (~6 years after use) at the advice of my gyno for endometriosis and ovarian cysts. Having lost many years due to depression and decreased sex drive I am now stopping the pill and changing my diet to try to improve my quality of life. I just started a strict almost vegetarian diet to deal with my endometriosis and ovarian cysts and clense my gall bladder and liver. Outside of birth control the only solution the current med docs have is to have me go on Lupron or have a hysterectomy (i am only 27 years old!). Wanting to keep my insides I am going to try really hard to make it few these next months dealing with the hormonal side effects and ovarian cysts from getting off it. Has anyone else done this and it actually worked and how long until your body starts to feel better? Any suggestions for natural methods for controlling the ovarian cysts and the pain?
    I am also 4’11′ and a very fit 115 lbs and excersize every chance I get when I’m not stopped by the pain from the cysts. Excersize alone won’t make these go away..

    • ANSWER:
      heavy exercise and weight loss helps to reduce ovarian functioning, so will reduce hormone levels. You could try that. Good luck!

  4. QUESTION:
    If I have a history of ovarian cysts, would an IUD make this worse?
    I’m 17, and have been on seasonique for about 2 years. I am looking into different forms of birth control before I go back to my OBGYN. I have been looking into the IUDs, but it said that one of the side effects are ovarian cysts. My problem with that is that last year, I had to have surgery to remove 3 rather large cysts from my ovaries. I am also showing early signs of endimetriosis. I know that I don’t want kids for at least 9 years and I have a pretty hectic schedule with school and after school activities. So an IUD would be very nice so that I don’t have to get up in the middle of doing something to take my pill. But I am just worried about ovarian cysts.
