Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs or vesicles seen inside the ovary. Normally, during each menstrual period, a cyst called a follicle, which carries the egg cell and can reach 3 cm in size, forms in the ovaries. Then this cyst cracks and the egg is released. In young girls with ovulation problems, normal or physiological follicle cysts that cannot rupture can grow every month and reach 5-10 cm, while small numbers of 0.5-1 cm in size, which we call polycystic ovaries, can be seen in series. Apart from these functional cysts, benign or malignant ovarian cysts can also be seen in all age groups.

Except for the most common functional ovarian cysts, cysts can be benign or malignant tumoral cysts. In addition, as a result of infection, abscess-shaped cysts may occur, which is usually accompanied by pain and high fever.


Excessively intense menstrual bleeding in women occurs due to causes such as intrauterine device use, fibroids, uterine polyps, endometriosis, intrauterine inflammation, hormonal imbalances, and cancer.

It can become a dangerous situation depending on the causes of menstrual irregularity and the cause of excessive bleeding. If more than 4 tampons or pads are completely soiled in 2 hours, they should be applied immediately.

Menstrual irregularity can often be a sign of diseases such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid problems, and endometriosis.
