Utrogestan prescribed for ovarian cyst
Hi Wray, thank you for the very informative site. My gynaecologist has prescribed 200mg Utrogestan to assist in breaking up a cyst that has been discovered on my right ovary.
I very rarely take drugs as I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease 7 years ago and was on very heavy drugs and cortisone (I have got to the point where I can control this disease with diet, exercise and natural remedies and never take medication to try and avoid the effects of causing an imbalance in my system). In saying this however, my menstrual cycle has been very irregular over the past 8 months and may be due to cysts appearing in my body and being broken down naturally. I am very nervous to take any sort of HRT because of my history and would prefer to go the natural route. The problem is this cyst is very large (4.5cm x 4.5cm) and the only alternative is cutting it out. What would you recommend I do? Is there an alternative to Utrogestan, would taking the pill help at all, or is this not the same thing? I have been taking Natpro for the last few weeks - would this help on a long term basis or is it too risky? Thanks and regards.
