Ovarian Issues

Ovarian issues are a common concern for many women who have difficulty conceiving or who experience abnormal symptoms. A thorough understanding of ovarian health is essential to ensure the best possible outcome. From ovulation irregularities and PCOS to ovarian cysts and cancer, several conditions can affect the function of the ovaries. In addition, treatments such as fertility drugs or surgery may also be necessary in some cases. With expert support and advice, it is possible to effectively manage these conditions.

Types of Ovarian Issues

There are various types of ovarian issues. The main ones are ovulation disorders, PCOS, endometriosis, premature ovarian insufficiency, and ovarian cysts. Ovulation disorders involve a disruption in the normal release of an egg from the ovaries. PCOS is a hormonal imbalance that causes irregular periods and difficulty conceiving. Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus and can cause infertility issues.  

Causes of Ovarian Issues

Ovarian issues can be caused by a variety of conditions, including hormonal imbalances, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and pelvic inflammatory disease. PCOS is a common cause of reproductive and hormonal problems in women, which can result in ovarian issues including anovulation and infertility. Other causes may include genetic disorders, metabolic disturbances, and diseases such as lupus or diabetes. In some cases, the underlying cause of ovarian issues is unknown.

Symptoms of Ovarian Issues

Symptoms of ovarian issues may include abdominal pain, pelvic pain, bloating, feeling full quickly while eating, urinary urgency or frequency, and changes in bowel habits. Other symptoms can include fatigue, difficulty concentrating, back pain, abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge, and unexplained weight gain or loss. If the ovarian issue is caused by a tumour on the ovary, there may also be swelling in the abdomen or rapid breathing. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to consult your doctor immediately.

Treatment options for Ovarian Issues

It is advisable for anyone experiencing any abnormal symptoms, such as pelvic pain, pressure, or bloating that does not go away within two weeks, to consult a doctor. Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhoea, and frequent urination. If the patient is also experiencing changes in menstrual cycles or infertility issues, it may be an indication of ovarian issues. Women should always consult a doctor if they have irregular periods or bleeding between them. It is important to see a doctor immediately if there are signs of jaundice, swelling in the abdomen and legs, or difficulty breathing.

Risks or complications associated with Ovarian Issues

Ovarian issues can lead to several risks and complications. These include pelvic pain, ovarian cysts, infertility, ectopic pregnancy, and ovarian cancer. Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that form on the ovary and may require surgery if they become large or cause discomfort. Infertility can be caused by blocked fallopian tubes or abnormal hormone levels, which can prevent eggs from being released. Ectopic pregnancies occur when a fertilised egg implants outside of the uterus, and can cause serious health complications. And finally, ovarian cancer is a rare but potentially deadly disease that affects the cells in the ovaries.


Ovarian issues can be incredibly difficult to diagnose and treat. Fertility experts are uniquely qualified to understand the complexities of ovarian issues and provide the best treatment options for patients. With a thorough evaluation, lifestyle modifications, and medications or surgical intervention, fertility experts can help women reach their reproductive health goals.
