On the ovaries, fluid-filled sacs are known as ovarian cysts. Most of the time, simple ovarian cysts are not cancerous. The majority of cysts are diagnosed with ultrasound or other imaging tests, which also reveal the cyst’s size to your doctor. If a cyst ruptures, you may experience sudden pain and discomfort, despite the fact that most cysts do not cause symptoms.
It is essential to know that ovarian cysts typically do not interfere with fertility if you have been diagnosed with them and are attempting to conceive. However, there will always be some exceptions.
There is a link between some ovarian cysts and lower fertility. Nevertheless, it is contingent on the kind of ovarian cyst you have.
The following are ovarian cysts that can affect fertility:
• Mesotheliomas Endometriomas, or en-doe-me-tree-O-muhs, are cysts caused by endometriosis, a condition in which the tissue that normally lines your uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus. Endometriomas are also known as endometriomas. These ovarian cysts may be linked to issues with fertility.
• Polycystic ovary syndrome-related ovarian cysts PCOS is a condition characterized by numerous small cysts on the ovaries, irregular periods, and elevated hormone levels. The irregular ovulation that is linked to PCOS may contribute to fertility issues in some women.
In most cases, these kinds of ovarian cysts have no effect on fertility:
• Cysts that work. The most prevalent type of ovarian cyst is a functional cyst, also known as a corpus luteum or follicular cyst. Functional cysts do not cause or contribute to infertility and form during a normal menstrual cycle. In point of fact, functional cysts are a sign that the functions that are necessary for fertility are taking place.
• Cystadenomas. Growths in the ovary that originate from the surface of the ovaries are known as cystadenomas (sis-tad-uh-NO-muhs). In spite of the fact that they might require treatment, they don’t influence richness.
• Cysts of dermoids Instead of fluid, these solid cysts contain tissue like skin, hair, or even teeth. There is no link between dermoid cysts and infertility.
Talk to your doctor if you’ve been told you have an ovarian cyst and are worried about getting pregnant. Treatment options that might increase your chances of getting pregnant will be discussed by your doctor.
