You have just been to the physician for abdominal pain. After a pelvic exam and an ultrasound, the doctor has rendered a diagnosis. Armed with a prescription for the discomfort, you are scheduled to come back after two weeks, unless the pain becomes severe or you experience abnormal bleeding. You are now online looking for answers. So, what are follicular cysts and the treatment options?

Naturally, you hate to be left in the dark, especially with regards to your health. If you are a young woman who would want kids in the future, it is especially worrisome when the physician mentions anything negative concerning your ovaries. What you need is an explanation, in understandable terms, and the treatment choices available to you.

During a normal menstrual cycle a dominant follicle would develop during the first two weeks. The fluid-filled sac will then rupture to release the egg for potential fertilization. Then again, every so often the sac will not break and continue to fill with fluid.

In several cases, follicular cysts are nothing to worry about. As a matter of fact, most women have probably had one, at one time or another, and not even been aware of the problem. A follicular cyst will often resolve itself in one month or two. However, if the cyst grows too big, it can twist the ovary and cause severe pain. So, if this happens to you, what are your treatment options?

Hormonal therapy: If you are prone to recurring follicular cysts, the doctor might suggest birth control pills. The hormones slow the production of estrogen, which technically feeds the cyst. Then again, if you are trying to conceive a child, this treatment will probably not be your first option.

Surgery: In severe cases of follicular cysts, an operation is a viable choice. But, any surgical procedure is not without inherent risks. Not only is it costly and potentially painful, there is always the risk of scar tissue that could reduce the chances of pregnancy. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the cysts would not come back in the near future.

Holistic therapy: If you are not comfortable with the initial 2 alternatives, holistic therapy might be the answer for getting rid of your follicular cysts. The treatment is natural, which means no pregnancy preventing hormones; it is not dear or painful; and thousands of women can attest to being free of future follicular cysts using only the natural holistic approach.

Now you know the basics of follicular cysts of your ovaries and the treatment alternatives that are obtainable to you. It is your own body, your very own choice. But, for lots of women, holistic remedy is the natural solution, without affecting the ability to get pregnant in the future.

Majority of the women who have had success with this approach only tried it after years of suffering from ovarian cysts, and being let down by conventional medicine. Don't make the same mistake. If you are suffering with ovarian cysts, try the natural method before it's too late - you won't be sorry
