Does anyone know what causes ovarian cysts and/or what can be done to prevent them?

A: ovarian cysts are when you release an egg and there is nothing there to fertilize it, it usually passes through, but the egg attaches itself to your ovaries and then it forms a cyst. I get them all the time- birth control can prevent them- u would normally get them around the time you ovulate. The normal function of the ovaries is to produce an egg each month. During the process of ovulation, a cyst-like structure called a follicle is formed inside the ovary. The mature follicle ruptures when an egg is released during ovulation. The corpus leteum forms from the empty follicle and if pregnancy does not occur, the corpus leteum dissolves. Sometimes this process does not conclude appropriately causing the most common type of ovarian cyst --...

ovarian cysts, how common are they? Has anyone here had one and had to have it removed?

A: I did have one on one of my ovaries causing me a great deal of pain. I had it removed by laproscopic surgery and never had any problems. Recovery time was about a week. My aunt had one removed the size of a grapefruit when she had a c-section for her baby. It grew bigger because of all the vitamins she was taking for the baby. She was okay and has had a few since. After about a week and a half she is usually back to normal and can take care of her kids again. I had a couple when I was about 17. They hurt terribly, but I never had surgery. My doctor told me to just rest and they would burst on their own…. It sounds worse than it is I had laparoscopic surgery (thru the belly button) for what was supposed to be an ovarian cyst. It turned...

Normally the egg is released from the sac (ovulation) and the sac dissolves. But if a normal sac keeps expanding, it becomes a cyst. Another type of cyst may form if when the egg is released, the channel through which it has burst seals off very quickly, and the area...
