Ovarian Cysts

Hi Doc,

I would just like to find out what causes ovarian cysts and what can I do to prevent the damn things. Been diagnosed with PCOS.

I have one ovary and have cysts: (normally 8cm)

Sept 2008, April 2009 and Feb 2010 (2 cysts).

I am overweight (84kg / 1.67m) so is this the cause ??

How can I prevent getting these cysts ? i am so damn fed up.

Thank you for your response.

Hallo Fedup
You can't do anything to prevent it - it is part of the PCOS syndrome. It may help to take medication (esterogen/progesterone hormonal treatment) or anti-androgens (e.g.Diane) and Metformin ( medication for hyperinsulinemia)
