I have a 1cm cyst on my left ovary and 2cm cyst on my right ovary. I am over a week late for my period, are they the cause of it

Posted by SoftballSteis

I have a one year old and my husband and I are trying to conceive as well. My home pregnancy tests are showing up negative, but I did not get a positive with our son until I was 7 weeks. I am having a sore lower back, tender breasts and moody. Can these also be my body's reaction because it was anticipating my menstrual cycle?

They just found the ovarian cysts about two weeks ago, while I was in for my one year check up and they did an ultrasound. My periods are pretty consistent, they may be a day or two early or a day or two late. (They changed a little after having my son)
Ovarian cysts are the product of failed or disordered ovulation. One way an ovarian cyst is formed when the follicle does not release its egg and the follicle continues to grow forming a cyst.

Most ovarian cysts are normal and harmless but many women experience fertility issues if the cysts get too large, or are the symptom of a bigger issue such as PCOS.

You may want to wait and take another pregnancy test.  The cysts could be a cause but you will not know for sure, wait to see if you are pregnant or not.  How long have you had the cysts?  Is your menstrual cycle usually on time despite having cysts?

 Working toward preventing cysts in the future will help  you to rule out ovarian cysts as a culprit if you miss your period again and your are not pregnant.

 Ways to prevent ovarian cysts:

Reduce excess estrogen by using a natural supplement called DIM, avoiding soy products, eat only organic foods, avoid products that contain mineral oil, avoid drinking water from plastic

Balance hormones using herbs such as Maca

Increase Progesterone if you find you are progesterone defficient

Disslove and reduce cysts using systemic enzymes and Castor oil packs
