I recently found out I have an ovarian cyst. I have had tubal cysts in the past which led me to have a hysterectomy as I couldn't live in that much pain. Is there anything that I can do to prevent future cysts without having my ovaries removed? I never wanted to go through this again!
I was on metformin for my PCOS, but it is usually prescribed when a variety of symptoms are present. It helped greatly reduce the frequency of cysts and the pain that came with them. The only downfall of the drug is that you have to titrate on it and there are digestive issues for several days. Once on it though it is very worth it.
