Find cyst in right ovarian, can you tell me name of the medicine?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath,
Dear Rakhi, One should not rely on such prescription until proper diagnosis is done. Moreover, there is no specific [patent] medicine for Uterine or Ovarian or other cysts in Homoeopathy. Man is more important than the disease, therefore we consider the man first, disease afterwards.

Please use a contraception, cu-t / multiload is a good option, and this is the correct time for cu-t insertion. If your wife is comfortable and not in pain, you may resume physical intimacy.

First do a urine pregnancy test yourself. If its positive visit a gynaec if you want abortion. Very safe pills are available nowadays for abortion. Beware of quacks and avoid self medication if its negative. Wait for spontaneous periods. If itching etc continues even after periods. Visit a gynaec as you may have an infection. That is also treatable with appropriate antibiotics always use condoms. It not only avoids pregnancy but also protects from many infections.

Obvious ayurveda is much beneficial for pcod. Bcoz its a autoimmune disorder, no other pathy except ayurveda pacify the cause of pcod. According the ayurveda, meda carrying channels block so basically blocked channels is detoxified. For that ayurvedic remedies like kanchnar guggulu, arogyavardhinivati punarnava mandoor if any irregularity of periods, rajapravartini vati and patrangashav with ashokarisht to be given for a month. Then after follow up should be given by the patient of pcod.

Hi my self Sima Goswami & I am 35 years old. I have ovarian syst. Recently I am doing CA125 and as per report it is 41.29U/ml. Please confirm me that is it indicated Ovarian Caner & also please confirm is it early Stage or it will be quarable.

MBBS, DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Delhi
No. The level of ca125 in your blood can increase for other reasons, not just ovarian cancer. A ca125 blood test result above 35 is not in itself an ovarian cancer diagnosis. If the level of ca125 in your blood is 35 or higher, your gp should arrange for you to have an ultrasound scan of your tummy and pelvis. The ultrasound scans will create pictures of your ovaries so that they can be checked for anything unusual, and will help your gynae to gather more information.
