Q. Ovarian Cysts and herbal remedies ..? please answer someone?I have suffered with ovarian cysts since I was 14 (now 20). I have never had one go away’ or dissolve like they are meant to. They grow very large and need removing. If they are not removed and they burst, it is excruciating.I put it down to an extreme hormonal in-balance. I suffer acne, oily skin, hair loss, too much body hair,no sex drive, vaginal dryness, stress, fatigue .I’m totally fed up.The hospital do a good job of removing the cysts (but that’s it) and my doctor is pretty useless.She told me to take birth control but that causes a world of other problems for me.. ..I need help PREVENTING them in the first place, not just getting rid of them with invasive surgery or excruciating pain.I have recently heard that herbs such as dong quai, agnus castus and korean ginseng can help my hormonal balance and increase my libido ..I got a bit confused though cuz ginseng is meant to increase oestrogen .but that’s what causes cysts isnt it?!I bought agnus castus and ginseng but now i’m wondering if i should of bought dong quai instead of these or even just instead of ginseng.Can i take agnus castus with dong quai or is one or the other?and does ginseng really work?????Anyone with any experiences with either cyst prevention or taking herb supplements.Please help me! please Im so desperate. I’ve put up with this for too long at such a young age. x,
A. Thanks. We try not to get involve with herbal remedies, as we do not know what they indeed contain, despite what the manufacturers claim. Thanks. My suggestion is for you to speak to your surgeon. You are likely to have recurrent haemorrhagic cysts, which can be treated by stopping you from having monthly ovulations. Injections are available to do that. Apologies for much delays in response.
