Does Your Ovary Pain Mean You Have an Ovarian Cyst?

in Pain

Ovarian cyst symptoms vary greatly and they all do not include ovarian pain. Also, pain radiating from or around your ovaries does not mean you have a cyst on an ovary. However, a lack of pain does not mean you are free of cysts.

When pain is not present, other symptoms can serve as a warning that you may have one or more ovarian cysts.

Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can develop anywhere in a person's body, and particularly on the ovaries.

While no woman is immune to such cysts which can form at any age, most women are prone to developing cysts during the menstrual cycle.

Most ovarian cysts are harmless, but some can be malignant and pose a serious health danger.

A condition called polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) causes small cysts to form in or on the ovaries. This can interfere with a woman's ability to have children.

Cyst symptoms not associated with pain

• Unexplained weight gain

• Infertility

• Late or irregular periods

• Bleeding between periods

• Difficulty urinating

• Nausea or vomiting

• Breast tenderness

• Fatigue

• Dizziness or light-headedness

Cyst symptoms associated with pain

• Severe abdominal discomfort

• Severe menstrual cramps

• Internal bleeding

• Pain during bowel movements

• Pain during sexual intercourse

Pain and most severe symptoms can be due to a burst ovarian cyst. A cyst can rupture as a result of strenuous physical activities or exercise or when giving birth.

Some cysts are attached to the ovary by a short stem which can enable the cyst to shift or move. A twisted cyst on an ovary can cause intermittent pain rather than sharp pain.

Regardless of the potential cause, if you're experiencing severe or constant pain, you should visit your doctor to determine if ovarian cysts are the cause or if another problem exists.

You can take some comfort in the fact that most ovary cysts are painless and typically disappear without any medical intervention. And those that cause pain can be treated in a variety of ways.

An important point is that the various conditions existing in your body that cause cysts to occur in the first place can be treated or reversed. For example, you can take oral contraceptives to reduce the likelihood of developing cysts on your ovaries.

A more important point is that you must address the root causes of your ovarian cysts to eliminate the cysts completely -- along with any pain they're causing -- and prevent them from reoccurring.

It is vital to know you can achieve relief by applying natural techniques -- rather than medications, drugs or surgery -- that work effectively, safely and quickly.
