Hello, Myself Angel want to know something. I am married since last 6 months. Recently due to some abdominal pain doctor advised me to do an usg. In the usg report there is showing that both the ovaries are slightly prominent with multiple tiny follicular cysts and slight fluid is seen on p.o.d. Is it serious issue??
Please help me.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

A follicular cyst occurs when the follicle of the ovary doesn't rupture or release its egg. Instead, it grows until it becomes a cyst.

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs or pockets within or on the surface of an ovary.

Around the midpoint of your menstrual cycle, an egg bursts out of its follicle and travels down the fallopian tube in search of sperm and fertilization. A follicular cyst begins when something goes wrong and the follicle doesn't rupture or release its egg. Instead it grows and turns into a cyst.

Any thing more specific must be discussed with your gynecologist.
