How does desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) help supress ovarian cyst?

How does desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) help supress ovarian cyst?

Hormonal: Desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) contains estrogen. When you take the pill, the estrogen in the pill decreases the need for estrogen production from the ovaries. Estrogen production from the ovaries comes from ovarian cysts. Less estrogen needed from the ovaries means less ovarian cysts. ...Read more

They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst 5.5 x 8.5 and my doctor gave me nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) hoping for it to shrink. What are the possibilities it will or end removing it?

Ovarian cysts...: If these cysts are definitely benign most of the time they disappear on their own between approximately 6-10 weeks. A follow up US after that time is advisable in order to find out what their status is. Those that require removal are complex and persist, or those ones that look suspicious. Make sure you follow up with your GYN provider on this. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: The ovarian cyst with septations is small, and probably benign. The myometrial fibroid is also probably benign. A trial of "ovral" (a birth control pill) may diminish both in time, but your doctor may also want a sample of tissue from the ovarian cyst which is gotten via laparoscopy because of the septations. The chances of abnormal cell growth are small. Discuss options with your doctor. ...Read more

Okay : So long as you don't have a strong family history for ovarian or breast cancer, this small cyst on the ovary isn't concerning. It's very small in size. And is likely an incidental finding on ultrasound. The fibroid you described as well is also benign and small. The most important and definitive opinion comes from your doctor who knows you the best. But overall, these findings are not worrisome. ...Read more

No real side effects: People can be started on birth control pills to help treat painful periods, help reduce ovarian cysts, and some help with acne as you mentioned. Once off the pill, it may take a couple of cycles for your body to regulate your period. Also, you may notice that your periods are more painful and your acne may return. ...Read more
