What is the cause of cyst on ovaries and what treatment is needed in this case?

Treatment for ovarian cysts

Women have two ovaries. Each of these releases an egg which is covered in a sac called a follicle. The release of the egg starts the process of preparing the uterus for pregnancy. If the egg is not fertilized then a woman has her monthly period. During this period everything in the uterus, including the walls of the uterus, thickened in preparation for pregnancy, are emptied. Sometimes however, the follicle does not burst, and does not release the egg. It is in such cases that the fluid forms a cyst. Most women, especially those who are in the period of their lives when they can have children, have cysts. These cysts are usually harmless and they disappear after a while on their own.

However, if you have been suffering from irregular periods and have also experienced some pain and swelling in your abdomen, then you should definitely visit your doctor.

You can try to avoid the development of cysts by maintaining a healthy, balanced diet. Try to avoid eating too much of tomatoes and diary foods like cheese and butter. Watch your diet and your weight. Avoid eating an excessively carbohydrate rich diet. Instead eat vegetables and fruits and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
