The number of women diagnosed with polycystic ovary disease has been increasing in recent years. The disease manifests itself by multiple cysts in the ovaries which form due to buildup of small eggs caused by hormonal changes. The cysts vary in size and look like small sacs. The disease affects women during their reproductive years.

Even though the cysts themselves are not harmful, they grow bigger over time and cause problems. In order to prevent their growth, a woman needs a treatment that can regulate her hormonal balance.

It’s very important to recognize the early warning signs of ovarian cysts in order to prevent further complications. Here are the most common symptoms:

  • Frequent urination and problems urinating;
  • Abnormal and painful menstruation;
  • Painful sex;
  • Vomiting;
  • Nausea;
  • Weight gain;
  • Loss of appetite;
  • Lower back pain;
  • Bloating and pain in the abdomen.

Other symptoms such as fatigue and bowel movement changes can appear as well. You should also visit a doctor if you’re experiencing post-menopausal bleeding. In order to prevent further problems, you should note your symptoms in a diary and track them so you can show it to your gynecologist.

There are two natural remedies against ovary cysts – chasteberry and licorice.


This herb can treat almost all gynecological diseases – it regulates the menstrual flow, reduces pelvic pain and shrinks ovarian cysts. Chasteberry contains diterpenes which can lower the levels of estrogen and regulate the hormonal balance.


Licorice balances hormonal levels due to its healing properties and also improves the adrenal function. It is very useful and one of the best (and safest) natural remedies for ovarian cysts. Boil some licorice in a pot for 5 minutes, then leave it to cool down and strain the mixture. Drink the tea twice a day for best results.
