Ovarian health and your overall reproductive health is a vital part of your fertility journey. 

Ovarian health and your overall reproductive health is a vital part of your fertility journey. 

At itrust fertility, we know that all fertility journeys encompass various aspects from your overall health and gynaecological history to your particular fertility challenges and the path you need to take to enhance your fertility.

A cyst aspiration is one procedure we offer at itrust fertility to maximise your fertility options, health, and overall ability to conceive.

This refers to the process of draining the fluid out of the sacs that form ovarian cysts through a minimally invasive procedure. These cysts vary in size and in the way that they may affect your fertility.

If you are considering an IVF treatment cycle (a full treatment cycle, i.e. all the monitoring, tests and procedures required in a full episode of treatment), an ovarian cyst may impact your chances of conceiving. If a cyst is small, however, your fertility specialist may continue your IVF procedure without a cyst aspiration.

This is an ideal procedure for individuals considering IVF because this treatment cycle (a full treatment cycle, i.e. all the monitoring, tests and procedures required in a full episode of treatment) can resume just one cycle after your aspiration has taken place.

What to know before a cyst aspiration

Regardless of whether or not your ovarian cysts are impacting your fertility, they can affect your overall health.

For example, if you suspect that you may be suffering from an ovarian cyst, waiting too long to address it could lead to either the cyst disappearing over time or lead to it rupturing and causing you a great deal of pain.
