How do you get an ovary cyst?

I was told that I have an ovary cyst. How did I get it?

Every month when you ovulate your body forms a cyst in your ovary. The cyst pushes the egg into the fallopian tube. After the egg is gone the cyst will dissopate on it’s own-usually. On occasion the cyst will stay and grow over the course of several cycles. Most cysts cause no symptoms but are found during a routine pelvic exam. Some cysts do cause symptoms and can grow to be very large.

Likely after finding the cyst your dr will have you have an ultrasound to see what exactly they are dealing with b/c there are several different types of cyst. The majority are functional cysts and are nothing to be concerned with. Having a cyst does not mean you have cancer.

    Every time your ovary has an ovum mature, it forms inside a cyst. The cyst is then forced to the surface of the ovary, and when it’s time for you to ovulate, it will burst and send the little egg into your fallopian tube. Forming an ovulation cyst is what ovaries do, and how they function. However, sometimes the cyst gets out of hand and too large. Some ladies will form multiple cysts on both ovaries. The fact you have one doesn’t necessarily mean anything, except if it is large it may cause pain. In that case, they generally don’t do much except give you something for the pain and wait for it to rupture all by itself. If you continue to form large or multiple cysts, and have pain from it, then there are things they can do to help with that. But based on just one cyst, it’s not really a problem that needs fixing just yet. Your cyst could well just be the usual and normal ovulation cyst that they would expect to see. You would need to discuss the matter with a gynecologist to learn more about your particular situation.

    Yes, I also had a cyst but for some reason it passed to my fallopian tube and was stuck there. I had it removed because my doctor said it could rupture.
    The doctor also said it is common practice to just snip the tube which would have left me with one functioning tube. When I had the cyst removed I had a surgeon that specializes in tubal reverasals (he reverses when women have their tubes tied) do the surgery. After I went to the follow up and had dye ran through my tubes and they are both perfect.
    My point in sharing all of this is to tell all women to fully educate themselves before taking action especially when it comes to our reporductive system.
