Hi Brother Eka,
Ovarian cyst is a condition of the growth of a pouch mass with fluid contents in the female ovary, its growth is influenced by various factors and the type of tissue can be in the form of physiological cysts which appear during the menstrual cycle and can improve by itself and pathological cysts containing abnormal tissue, can even potentially cause cancer. Risk factors that can cause it include being on hormonal therapy, hormonal disturbances in the body such as hypothyroidism, smoking, and pregnancy. When pregnant, the body produces the hormone HCG, namely Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is present in the bodies of both men and women, the number increases rapidly during pregnancy, this hormone functions to increase fertility, when not pregnant it will help stimulate the release of mature eggs (ovulation) and during pregnancy it functions maintains the ovaries at a certain stage (corpus luteum) to produce progesterone to strengthen the uterus. But on the other hand, the increase in this hormone can encourage the growth of ovarian cysts (especially those with the potential to develop cysts), during the 2nd trimester of pregnancy, blood HCG levels were very high at that time.
Examinations that can be done such as blood hematology examination, examination of HCG hormone levels, ultrasound examination. Actions that can be taken are to continue to have a healthy and calm pregnancy, after giving birth, monitoring can be carried out, it is hoped that the cyst will shrink or need to be considered for therapy such as hormonal therapy to surgery.
But don't worry, eat nutritious and healthy food, avoid preservatives or artificial chemicals (instant food). Exercise regularly according to ability. and if you are obese do weight loss. Hope it is useful
