On ultrasound, both ovaries are absolutely normal; to the relief and happiness not only of the patient and her husband, but of the doctor as well..
Once a woman has an ovarian cyst, she is more likely to develop it again in the same ovary or in the other one in the future.
Ovarian cysts can be removed surgically and it sometimes even may be the only choice. However, it generates several complications:
- Infertility caused by adhesions and diminished ovarian reserve
- Morbidity, due to complications of anesthesia, postoperative immobilisation, and possible traumatic complications of surgery
There is no prevention for ovarian cyst, despite the use of contraceptive pills with uncertain and unpredictable results.
Only homeopathy can treat ovarian cysts and stop the tendency of the recurrence of cysts in the future. In homeopathy, it’s not always the same remedy for the same disease. So, any another woman with the absolute same cysts may need another treatment. Such individualisation of each patient requires time and the expertise of the homeopathic practitioner, but the results are worth fortunes.
