Women suffering from ovarian cysts are more concerned about the risks and complications of ovarian cysts, rather than for the disease itself. These concerns are not ill founded as ovarian cysts can cause many upheavals in the life of a woman because of the resulting complications.

In order to avoid these complications and to seek appropriate treatment, an understanding of the risks and complications associated with ovarian cysts is essential.

Understanding Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are fluid filled sacks, which are formed within the ovary. Cysts, which are bigger than two centimeters, are formally diagnosed as ovarian cysts. Many ovarian cysts are functional in nature. That is, they are beginning and rarely ever cause complications. However in some cases, the cysts may lead to certain complications.

Risks and complications of ovarian cysts depend on the type of cyst and the stage of treatment. Some types of risks and complications which are associated with ovarian cysts include the following:

  1. Ruptured ovarian cyst: This is one the most serious forms of complication. A ruptured ovarian cyst can lead to internal bleeding and in some cases it can be very dangerous. A ruptured ovarian cyst can cause hemorrhage, which requires immediate medical attention.
  2. Ovarian torsion: Sometimes, there is also twisting of the ovary, which can lead to infertility. Ovarian torsion may disturb blood supply to the ovary as well. This leads to another complication called ovarian necrosis, which leads to inflammation and septic shock.
  3. Peritonitis: Pertitonitis is the inflammation of the mucus membrane. As this membrane lines the abdomen cavity, it can cause excruciating pain and in some cases the resulting complications can be life threatening.
  4. Infertility: Infertility caused by ovarian cysts can be temporary or permanent depending upon the extent of the damage. Hence, women suffering from ovarian cysts and those wanting to start a family should take ovarian cysts really seriously.
  5. Cancer: In rare but significant instances, ovarian cysts may even turn cancerous. The patient will then require the usual cancer treatment along with surgery, where generally both the ovaries are removed.

Besides these serious complications and risks, ovarian cysts also lead to excruciating pain and hormonal imbalance. This can affect the mental and emotional well being of the patient as well.

However, conventional medicine very rarely pays attention to the mental and emotional complications that may develop because of ovarian cysts. The treatment options can cause many side effects like loss of fertility, weight gain, and reoccurrence of stronger cysts. Therefore, many women find it difficult to cope with the demands of the conventional treatment, which can worsen an already difficult condition.

Hence, to overcome the risks and complications of ovarian cysts along with the disease, you will need a more comprehensive and holistic approach. The holistic approach is very effective as it treats the root cause of the condition and not the just the symptoms. Symptoms are easier to treat, but relief of symptoms gives only a false sense of security, not a long term solution.

The holistic approach shatters this conventional thinking by clearly eliminating the root cause. Therefore, the holistic approach can not only treat ovarian cysts, but can also prevent the risks and complications of ovarian cysts into the bargain.
