Doctor

A:   Ovarian cysts are small fluid filled sacs that are present in the ovaries. In most of the cases, these cysts are harmless. They affect women who are in the child bearing range. The cysts may be formed due to irregular menstrual cycles, if there was previous history of ovarian cysts, obesity, infertility. The treatment of the cysts depends on their size and whether it has ruptured or not. For most of the cases NSAIDS like advil may help in relieving the symptoms.
If you are presently not trying to conceive, you may ask your doctor to put you on an oral contraceptive pill because it decreases the chances of developing an ovarian cyst.
