					Many people have questions about ovarian cysts, especially the woman of
childbearing age, because these cysts are more common in young women. No matter
if you had a tubal ligation, tubal reversal or no surgery at all, these cysts are
commonly observed during physical examination or ultrasound. Ovarian cysts are
common and usually occur due to the normal monthly variation of hormones in
premenopausal women. Since the reversal of ligation does not stop hormonal cycle as
well as cysts from occurring.

Sometimes ovarian cysts can cause pain, and in rare cases that may be cancerous. Non
cancerous cysts occur after the normal process or a minor abnormality that can clear
up on its own.In these circumstances, Dr. Morice may recommend that you follow up
in a month or two to see if the cyst has resolved on its own. In certain circumstances,
the doctor may recommend an imaging medications, or even surgery to better
understand what is causing the cyst.
 Because there are many different types of cysts, Dr. Morice may want to have a
better understanding of
what is causing yours, especially if you have a reversal of tubal ligation. The
identification can be performed with ultrasound before the reversal of tubes is done
only to ensure that there is nothing to do more before surgery.
 The 5 most common types of ovarian cysts are:
 - Functional cysts
 - Endometrial cysts
 - Cystadenomas
 - Dermoid cysts
 - Polycystic ovaries


Functional cysts are most common in young women who are normally cycling,
regardless of wwhether they have had a reversal of tubal ligation. These cysts are a
normal process of menstruation and clear up on their own without you or Dr. Morice
even know about them.
 There are 2 types of functional ovarian cysts.

The first comes from the Graafian follicle (or SAC), where the egg develops each
month. It is the most common and occurs if the sac fails to release its egg.

The second type of functional cyst is a simple cyst filled with fluid. Both types
usually resolve themselves within one to three months.

Another remnant from the monthly cycle is a corpus luteum cyst. After the egg is
released, this portion of the ovary usually disintegrates. For example, if the woman
becomes pregnant after a tubal ligation reversal, sometimes this cyst can form if the
sac seals off. This 鈥榮 ealing 鈥?of the cyst wall results in a buildup of fluid. Again
these cysts normally resolve in a few weeks with most women remaining unaware
that they 鈥檙 e even there. The likelihood of getting an ovarian cyst is not increased
at all by a tubal reversal.
  Occasionally the cysts can become enlarged and rupture. This may cause a little bit
of bleeding and pain. Sometimes the blood will collect inside of the cyst itself, and
this is called a hemorrhagic cyst. Although a hemorrhagic cyst can be quite painful, it
is also a benign condition that can be safely watched without intervention and without
concern for an underlying cancer. As always, if you have concerns about pelvic pain
or your risk for ovarian cancer you should discuss these concerns with Dr. Morice.
