Can Birth Control Pills Treat Cysts And Quality Of Eggs?
what are the good and bad effects of taking birth control pills to treat cysts? Can birth control pills reduce the quality of the egg? can you get pregnant after the cyst is gone?
Hello Egha, Thank you for the question.
What cyst do you mean. Chocolate cyst / endometriosis or ovarian cyst? Endometriosis is a condition of the discovery of uterine lining tissue (endometrium) outside the uterus. Symptoms of endometriosis in general are pain when menstruation is quite severe and is accompanied by excessive menstrual bleeding, or bleeding in the stool or urine. The exact cause of endometriosis is unknown and existing treatments aim to control symptoms experienced by sufferers. Treatment that is recommended by the doctor depends on the symptoms, age, and patient's desire to have children. The use of birth control pills for endometriosis patients aims to prevent the growth of endometrial cells so that menstruation is lighter and can reduce severe pain during menstruation.
Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that form in the ovaries, which can be functional cysts (part of the menstrual cycle) or pathological cysts (due to abnormal cell growth). Treatment of ovarian cysts is also adjusted to the presence or absence of symptoms experienced by the patient, the size of the cyst, and whether the patient has menopause or not. The use of birth control pills aims to reduce the appearance of new cysts during menstruation.
Because birth control pills also function as a contraceptive, so if you take birth control pills, of course you cannot get pregnant, but that does not mean that the quality of your eggs is disturbed. birth control pills prevent the ovary from releasing an egg, thickening the vaginal mucus so that sperm is difficult to enter, and thinning the lining of the uterus so that the results of fertilization cannot stick and develop in the uterus. You can also experience side effects of using birth control pills such as nausea, headaches, bleeding outside of menstruation, increased body weight, mood swings.
If you experience endometrios, this condition can interfere with fertility (but not all sufferers) if endometriosis covers the fallopian tubes. A disturbed fallopian tube can cause the disruption of the fertilization process (the meeting of sperm with an egg). If you experience ovarian cysts, then the assumption for difficulty getting pregnant is not entirely true because most cysts can be treated without disrupting the reproductive organs. You should discuss further with the obstetrician and gynecologist who treats you because the doctor has examined you and understands your condition. Due to the limitations of the information that you submit, I cannot provide more precise information. Don't forget to always see your doctor according to the doctor's recommended examination schedule.
Hopefully this information is useful.
