Ovarian Cysts Versus PCOS
By Nabta Team
Ovarian cysts are not the same thing as PCOS. Ovarian cysts are single cysts which occur in your ovary and they’re also not associated with insulin resistance. Before reaching menopause, about 8% of women will report having one. Often the cyst doesn’t cause any issues and also doesn’t affect fertility. In a few cases it can cause stomach pain and abnormal periods, which are still managed by monitoring the patient. However, cysts which last longer than 2-3 periods require further investigation from your OB/Gyn.
