Why ovarian cysts are becoming more and more common?


There are several possible bases for the increasing prevalence of ovarian cysts:
1. High levels of insulin due to sugar intake: Many physicians like Dr. Steven Hotze and Dr. Carolyn Dean suggests a connection between obesity, along with the intake of sugar and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Syndrome X term indicates a group of symptoms including hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol, high triglycerides and uric acid, a chemical that causes severe joint pain and kidney stones. High sugar intake can cause the secretion of insulin and high insulin level closes the body's ability to burn fat, so move the sugar into fat cells. Moreover, disruption of insulin balance between estrogen and progesterone, which causes many cysts in the ovaries form.
2. Birth control pills: Many women take birth control pills to treat acne pain, menstrual cramps and irregular periods, and to prevent pregnancy. Prolonged use of birth control pills causes an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone.
3.Hyperactivity sympathetic nervous system: When the researchers severed the control of the sympathetic nerves in the ovaries of rats with chemically induced SOP, the rats started to ovulate again, and the cyst size decreased.

Electro-acupuncture activates certain nerve-muscle fibers to disable the sympathetic nervous system. It also changed neuronal activity in the spinal cord and induced the release of a number of chemicals that are important in the balance of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves on the uterus and ovaries. N. Raja-Khan et al. published an article in Am.J. Physiol Endocrinol Metab recently, explaining that acupuncture may modulate the endocrine and metabolic functions through the activation of somatic afferent nerves that innervate the skin and muscle. Somatic afferent nerves send information to the brain, which adjusts the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis and the immune system, leading to reductions in blood pressure, glucose and inflammation.

SOP are not always associated with obesity:
More and more women developed SOP although not overweight. They can be very good shape, with well developed muscles, however, their periods are very irregular, with an abnormal profile of the hormone, such as an increase in the LH / FSH, testosterone and reduces the level of progesterone. They usually eat many sweets, but intense exercise, so you never gain weight, but due to high testosterone levels, which tend to develop acne and tend to be short periods with severe cramps. Because there are many small cysts in the ovaries of the release of testosterone, the corpus luteum function is abnormal, leading to spotting many days before your period comes. Very often have periods every two to three months or, possibly, periods stop. PCOS can lead to infertility and early menopause if not treated properly.
