Can an ovarian cyst cause depression and fatigue?
Hello, I am 25 years old female. Please tell me if diseases like ovarian cysts cause depression and fatigue. I feel lost all the time. I think I am not where I should be. A few months back I started exercising to lose weight as I was overweight, I am even suffering from issues like acne. I never felt that way. Please tell me Can an ovarian cyst cause depression and fatigue?
@aldrean Hello, Yes it causes mood swings in women. Because of the hormonal imbalance, women with PCOS also have a higher risk for depression, anxiety, and extreme or rapid changes in mood. If you have depression and PCOS, your doctor will likely treat your depression by treating the specific underlying cause. Things like cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy can help you. PCOS and depression often go together. With treatment, you can greatly reduce symptoms of both conditions. Thanks.
