Heavy Alcohol Intake In The Past And Ovarian Cysts
Alcohol consumption has been associated with increase levels of circulating estrogens particularly among postmenopausal women taking hormone replacement therapy.
High intake of alcohol has been also associated with lower levels of progesterone,derangements of menstrual cycle and reproductive hormone function.
Alcohol influences the sex hormone level and also the ovarian function.
Like i said, too much intake of alcohol in women leads to a negative effects in the reproductive system like:
1. Anovulation (which is when the ovaries do not release an oocyte during a menstrual cycle; then the Chronic anovulation is a common cause of infertility).
2. Luteal phase defects
3. Spontaneous abortion
5. Amenorrhea (menstrual disorder)
Heavy intake of alcohol enhances cyst formation especially the peribiliary cysts. The pancreas are also injured by heavy alcohol intake resulting in progressive fibrosis, peribiliary gland/adenitis.
Alcohol has a pronounced negative significant effects in women, from the ovarian dysfunction to the morphological changes. It also leads to the rapid decrease in steroid hormone.
I would want you to note that if alcohol can have or cause a damage to the internal organs in women, it will also have an effect in the ovary and the ovary cysts formation.
Remember that ovary cysts develops as a result of menstrual cycle. Which means that if anything happens to the menstrual cycle because of the heavy intake of alcohol, there will also be an effect on the ovarian cysts formation may be leading to the formation of peribiliary cysts.
But if you are a woman who was into alcoholism in the years past, there is also every tendency that the organ must have gotten affected then, which is now affecting your ovary and also having several development of the ovarian cysts.
All you need to do is to visit a doctor for a correction of the internal body mechanism especially the ovary and the rate of the ovary cyst formation. The doctor might place you on the following:
1. Dietary changes.
2. Metformin to increase insulin in women with PCOS.
3. Hormonal birth control pills to regulate the hormones and reduce the risk of developing more cysts.
