Functional Ovarian Cysts (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Functional ovarian cysts cannot be prevented if you are ovulating. Anything that makes ovulation less frequent reduces your chance of developing an ovarian cyst. Birth control pills, pregnancy, and breast-feeding in the first 6 months following birth prevent ovulation. Ovulation ceases when menopause is complete.
Home treatment can help relieve the discomfort of functional ovarian cysts.
