The ovaries

Ovaries are two small, bean-shaped organs located in the lower abdomen on both sides of the womb or uterus and very essential to the female reproductive system. The major functions of ovaries are;

  • to release one or more eggs approximately every 28 days of the female menstrual cycle
  • to release the vital female sex hormones which are oestrogen and progesterone

A cyst is a sac filled with fluid, formed in the body.

An Ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac which develops in one or both ovaries.  Ovarian cysts are very common in women, and all women would develop at least one cyst during their lifetime.  Ovarian cysts are mostly painless and in most cases, disappear without treatment within a few months.  However, ovarian cyst can become large and twist the ovary hence diminishing blood supply to the ovaries. If this occurs, it is called an ovarian torsion and it is considered a medical emergency.  The symptoms of a torsion are:

  • Severe or sharp pelvic pain usually on one side
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • difficulty emptying your bowels
  • rapid breathing
  • dizziness and feeling faint
