      Several reasons can be associated with pain in lower abdomen. They can be due to any trouble in the reproductive organs, cramps and pain can be due to problems related to urinary system or it can be due to lower intestinal problem. You need to undergo certain tests such as routine urine examination, routine stool examination, ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis. All these tests will help in detecting the cause. I also need some more information such as; how many hours or minutes does this pain last? Do you have pain while passing urine? Is your menstruation regular? How is the blood flow?

      There are many types of cysts in the uterus. Not every cyst may lead to infertility. In most of the cases there is no direct relation between the cyst and infertility. Infertility can occur in many ways. Ovary may not produce the required amount of eggs and this may be the reason for infertility. Sometimes hormonal changes are also the reason for infertility. Even if some cyst may cause infertility in most cases they are curable.

      Many times pregnancy test results may not be correct especially when the strip used is after its expiry date. Your daughter may have to consult a gynecologist to check if she is pregnant or she has a cyst in her uterus.

      A cyst may be one of the reasons for excessive bleeding. There can be other reasons as well. A hormonal change in the body can produce excessive bleeding. A fibroid in uterus may be responsible for excessive menstruation. One home remedy which usually works is banana flower. Boil banana flower and mix it with curd. Eat the mixture once in a day for two to three days. The natural progesterone content present in it benefits to stop excessive bleeding.

      A cyst in womb is normally an ovarian cyst. It usually develops as a result of hormonal imbalance. If the cyst is not removed it can grow larger in size and this may cause many problems like swelling in legs, pain in abdomen, urgency and frequency of urination, anemia etc. Surgical removal is essential. If the cyst is large and adjacent to pelvic organs they may also require removal. There is danger of cyst getting burst if it increases in size. Therefore, surgical removal becomes necessary. Nowadays with modern day surgical techniques surgery has become easy and less complicated in an experienced surgeons hand.
