What are Ovarian Cysts?

Ovarian cysts are sacs inside or on the surface of the ovary that are typically filled with fluid. The ovaries are two in females. On either side of the uterus, there is one ovary.The size and form of each ovary are comparable to an almond. In the ovaries, eggs grow and become mature. Throughout the years of childbearing, eggs are released on a monthly cycle.

Obstetrical cysts are typical. You often experience little to no discomfort, and the cysts are not harmful. Within a few months, the majority of cysts disappear with therapy. However, ovarian cysts can occasionally twist or burst open (rupture). Serious symptoms may result from this. Get regular pelvic exams and be aware of the symptoms that could point to a significant issue if you want to safeguard your health.
