Chances Of Getting Pregnant In Women With Ovarian Cysts?
I have been married for 3 years and have not been blessed with children. Then I checked with an obstetrician, ultrasound results on the left ovary had become a cyst with a size of 6x7cm. The doctor suggested that I avoid food from animals. Two months later, the ultrasound showed the cyst had shrunk by 0.5cm. Doctors recommend staying vegetarian. What I’m asking:rn-is there still a chance to get pregnant?rn-why do doctors only prescribe painkillers? Not prescribed vitamins or ‘fertilizer’?rnThank you
Hi Nunik, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Ovarian cysts or cysts on the ovaries are fluid-filled sacs on the surface of the ovaries or within them. Every woman has two ovaries located on the sides of the uterus and each month releases an egg during her reproductive period.
Many women will have cysts on the ovaries during their lifetime. Most of these cysts are harmless and cause little or no discomfort. However, large ovarian cysts can cause symptoms, such as bloating, pelvic pain and a feeling of fullness.
Some types of ovarian cysts, such as functional cysts, dermoid cysts and cystadenomas do not affect a woman's fertility or the normal function of the ovaries. However, some types of cysts, if judged by an obstetrician as too large, can cause several problems, such as pregnancy outside the womb, or infertility, so delaying pregnancy until the cyst shrinks is one way that can be taken.
Regarding vitamins and 'fertilizers' you ask, what you need to know is that there are no vitamins that work directly to shrink cysts or make it easier for women to get pregnant. If you feel you need vitamins, it would be better if you get them from the consumption of fruits and vegetables so that they are more natural and more friendly to the body. Likewise with fertility, there is no food that can make a woman more fertile than another woman. But there are foods that can fertilize sperm in men, so if the goal is to make it easier for you to get pregnant, you can try this method. Among the foods that can increase sperm count and quality are:
Foods with antioxidants. For example grapes, carrots, spinach, lettuce, broccoli. Foods with zinc and selenium. For example tuna, shrimp, beef, beef liver, eggs, brown rice. Foods rich in folic acid. For example lemon, mandarin orange, lime, nuts.
We have discussed these foods in more depth in our article on the Four Types of Sperm Enhancing Foods. In that article, we have also listed the habits that can actually trigger sperm damage, thereby reducing the risk of pregnancy.
Our advice is for you to keep regular checks on your condition. Don't hesitate to ask your gynecologist all your concerns. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
