Ovarian Cysts

Women’s ovaries are two small, almond-sized organs that contain eggs. Sometimes, they can develop fluid-filled sacs in or on them, which are called cysts. Interestingly, doctors believe that most women have cysts at some point in their lives, and normally they are not harmful. However, a ruptured cyst can cause serious damage.

One way to treat ovarian cysts is to take oral contraceptives. While this can help you both prevent unwanted pregnancy and control ovarian cysts, some medications can have unsafe side effects that may affect you for the rest of your life. One dangerous birth control pill is YAZ, along with its related drugs Yasmin and Ocella. If you have suffered due to YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

Types of Functional Cysts

The two main types of cysts develop from follicles. Your ovaries grow follicles each month, which then release hormones to mature an egg. Sometimes, though, a follicle can keep growing even after its job is completed. This is called a functional cyst. The two main types of functional cysts include:

  • Follicular – occurs when a follicle fails to release its matured egg, instead turning into an abnormal fluid-filled sac
  • Corpus luteum – develops after a follicle releases its egg, but accidentally gets sealed and begins to collect fluid

Usually a cyst goes away on its own. However, it may require surgery. If you are prone to cysts, your doctor may prescribe oral contraceptives to help reduce this chance. Sadly, though, not all birth control medication is safe.
