When something is wrong in the body, to manifest a series of symptoms. However, we do not give much attention to what our body is saying. We think we’re exhausted because we did not sleep well or feel bloated because we are because we have something to eat or skin rash is due to a new moisturizer. However, it is vitally important to know the symptoms associated with ovarian cysts.
Women whose ovaries have many small cysts may develop polycystic ovarian syndrome. It can make the ovaries bigger and if left untreated can even lead to infertility.
Some of the early warning symptoms that you have ovarian cysts are:
- Vomiting and nausea
- Swelling and bloating
- Pelvic pain, either before or during the menstrual cycle
- painful chairs
- Pain in the thighs or lower back
- painful sexual intercourse
- breast tenderness
Serious symptoms that require urgent attention are:
- Rapid breathing
- Sharp or severe pelvic pain
- Dizziness or weakness
Ovarian cysts can be detected at an early stage during the routine gynecological exam. The symptoms of ovarian cysts can sometimes be hidden from the symptoms of ovarian cancer. If you have any changes in the menstrual cycle, unexplained weight loss, loss of appetite, abdominal fullness, or ongoing pelvic pain, visit your doctor immediately.
