  • Every month a cyst is formed and when it erupts the egg comes out. Sometimes they don't burst and causes problems.

  • I'm not sure what causes them but they've been painful! I began experiencing pain after I had my second. My doctor put on birth control to shrink it and it helped. The largest was close to 7cm in diameter. I don't experience as much pain as I did before. I'm just concerned about what I'll have to deal with in the future.

  • Being overweight, diet, they pop up after having kids. My gyno did an ultrasound and found 5 huge cysts and it can be genetic. There are so many reasons you need to talk with your doc to see whats up.

  • Low immune system, you need pharmaceutical grade antioxidants.. Our boddies are constantly bombard with free radicals, Air pollution, water pollution, pesticides, sun exposure, preservatives, radiation, smoke, excess exercise, fatty foods, and stress are some factors that raise free radical levels.....
