Treatment of a complex ovarian cyst depends on the type and nature of the cyst. If benign, there is little or no treatment that is required at all.

On the other hand, if the condition is serious, conventional treatment must be followed.

Included in conventional treatment are birth control pills and pain relievers. Birth control pills stop FSH (Follicle-stimulating hormone) which inhibits ovulation thus, repressing ovarian cyst. This drug also reduces the hormones that promote growth and prevent the formation of large cysts; the size of the follicles and size of existing cysts are reduced. It is a fact that birth control pills hinder ovulation but as soon as the woman stops taking the pills, she returns to square one. Prolong use of this pill may pose another health problem. Meanwhile, pain relievers are prescribed to diminish or minimize the pain caused by the cysts.

If the cyst is cancerous there are other complications, surgery will be the only option. In most cases, the cyst is removed but in other cases, ovaries are removed to eradicate the cysts. However, there are risks involved. Surgeries are expensive, leave scars, and leave the body open to infection. Sad to say, this does not prevent the formation of new cysts.

A single treatment plan is not possible when dealing with large complex ovarian cysts. Another form of cyst requires immediate surgical removal of such. There are some forms that need to be controlled by drugs. However, some medications do not eliminate complex ovarian cysts, leaving women affected by this condition, emotionally and physically concerned.  More complicated varieties of ovarian cysts treatments do not usually help in dealing with this condition as it only targets the symptoms and not the cause of the disease.

More often, gynecologists will decide on surgical removal of the cysts as the ultimate solution for complex ovarian cysts. There is no doubt that this management is the fastest way of dealing with this condition. However, there are side effects and this does not prevent the re-occurrence of cysts.

Body functions can be changed through natural remedies such as increasing fiber and water intake, intake of Vitamins or herbs, and following certain diets.
