OVARIAN CYSTS AND FIBROIDS
Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs on one or both ovaries that usually form during ovulation. Most ovarian cysts don’t cause symptoms. In some cases, menstrual irregularities, pain during intercourse or irregular bowel movements can occur. Ovarian cysts usually disappear in a few months but if they do not go away they can be treated with contraceptive pills or surgery.
Symptoms of fibroids, polyps and cysts vary, but these structural abnormalities can all contribute to pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding and other complications including infertility
Uterine fibroids are benign tumours that originate in the uterus (womb). In most cases, fibroids do not cause pain or other symptoms. Gynaecological surgery to remove the entire uterus (Hysterectomy) is the most common and complete fibroid treatment as it prevents any risk of recurrence.
