Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are fluid filled sacs that are formed inside the ovary.

The outer covering of these sacs is known as cyst wall. Their size can be as small as a pea to larger as an orange.

They can be formed to women of any age during childbearing years.and are less common after menopause.

Ovarian cysts are usually small and harmless and clear up on their own within a few weeks.

These are benign growths that usually show no signs and symptoms.

In rare cases when the cyst becomes large in size, medical intervention is necessary.

Depending upon the case, homeopathic medicines can help dissolve the existing cysts and  also prevent the formation of new ones.

If this tissue gets filled with blood, one gets luteal cysts.
