Last Update: 01/27/2022

Cristina Algarra, psychologist specialized in assisted reproduction for InviTRA, explains in this video what treatment you should follow if you have an ovarian cyst:

Once we do a confirmed diagnosis of a cyst we are going to treat the cyst depending on the characteristics. It is important to know the age of the woman, the size of the cyst, where it is located and the type of cysts that it is.

Generally, physicians will try to wait a couple of weeks and asses if the cyst has grown in size or if it has shrunk, and once you have this information you can either leave it and let it resolve on its own or intervene surgically.

Nevertheless, it is important the woman´s age in order to preserve her fertility, so if we have to intervene surgically to remove a cyst the physicians will try to take the less amount of tissue possible to leave a functioning ovary.
